The psychological warfare conducted on the population is finally getting more serious attention.

I previously mentioned the book by Laura Dodsworth,  A State of Fear:  How the UK government weaponized fear during the COVID pandemic.  It came out last May.  I drew from it in a couple of talks I have given.  Dodsworth revealed the SAGE subcommittee aptly named SPI-B, which gave the UK government advice on how to gain citizen compliance.

Two recent substack posts are worth reading.

Igor Chudov begins his series on the psychological manipulation used on us during the "COVID crisis."  One of his former professors helped design the manipulation.

And Naked Emperor discussed a Yale study which provided much of the psychological warfare material used to nudge us all into submission.  He concludes:

You may have naively believed that the fear, pressure and psychological toll of the pandemic caused your friends, family or colleagues to act in an unrecognisable way but it was all carefully planned. They conducted a study (and I’m sure this wasn’t the only one) to see which pressure points would work best on different parts of the population and then carefully released mountains of propaganda (funded by you) to turn your friends and family against you. This nudging was all done to get you to take a vaccine you decided you didn’t want.

The ethics statement in the study says the experiments conducted were fielded under an exemption granted by the University. It’s not difficult to understand why. 

Whether mass vaccination was the only way out of the pandemic or not, behaviourally nudging citizens to guilt each other into taking a novel treatment was not the way a civilised society should have acted.

They wanted you to get angry in order to get vaccinated but they failed. But they wanted you to get angry, so get angry. Get angry that the population was psychologically manipulated to turn on one another. Get angry that your friends and family were nudged into parroting the phrases used in the study to make you feel guilty, stupid or embarrassed. Get angry that you were socially ostracised and de-invited from events. Get angry that your colleagues made you lose your job. And if you were one of those who tried to convince someone to get vaccinated, get angry that you were so easily manipulated.

What percent of our population could be described as "critical thinkers"? That is, those who intentionally and consistently apply their own education, personal experience, reason, and extrapolative intuition upon the world they observe? My guess is about 5%. A very rare breed. Basically, outliers.

Meanwhile, well over 90% couldn't be bothered to think for themselves, much less to examine their own thoughts critically. The reasons for this would fill several long articles.

The manipulative tools of propagandists and marketeers are so spectacularly successful, because they have such a massively pliant and willing audience to work with -- ever eager for their next message.

Use of fear to control behaviour in Covid crisis was ‘totalitarian’, admit scientists

Use of fear to control behaviour in Covid crisis was ‘totalitarian’, admit scientists
By Gordon Rayner,

One scientist said the Government ‘was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down’

Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was “unethical” and “totalitarian”.

Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B) expressed regret about the tactics in a new book about the role of psychology in the Government’s Covid-19 response.

SPI-B warned in March last year that ministers needed to increase “the perceived level of personal threat” from Covid-19 because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened”.

Gavin Morgan, a psychologist on the team, said: “Clearly, using fear as a means of control is not ethical. Using fear smacks of totalitarianism. It’s not an ethical stance for any modern government. By nature I am an optimistic person, but all this has given me a more pessimistic view of people.”

Mr Morgan spoke to author Laura Dodsworth, who has spent a year investigating the Government’s tactics for her book A State of Fear, published on Monday.

Ministers have faced repeated accusations that they ramped up the threat from the pandemic to justify lockdowns and coerce the public into abiding by them – a claim that will be examined by the forthcoming public inquiry into the pandemic response.

SPI-B is one of the sub-committees that advises the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), led by Sir Patrick Vallance, the chief scientific adviser.

One SPI-B scientist told Ms Dodsworth: “In March [2020] the Government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down. There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear. The way we have used fear is dystopian.

“The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable. It’s been like a weird experiment. Ultimately, it backfired because people became too scared.”

Another SPI-B member said: “You could call psychology ‘mind control’. That’s what we do… clearly we try and go about it in a positive way, but it has been used nefariously in the past.”

One warned that “people use the pandemic to grab power and drive through things that wouldn’t happen otherwise… We have to be very careful about the authoritarianism that is creeping in”.

Another said: “Without a vaccine, psychology is your main weapon… Psychology has had a really good epidemic, actually.”

As well as overt warnings about the danger of the virus, the Government has been accused of feeding the public a non-stop diet of bad news, such as deaths and hospitalisations, without ever putting the figures in context with news of how many people have recovered, or whether daily death tolls are above or below seasonal averages.

Another member of SPI-B said they were "stunned by the weaponisation of behavioural psychology" during the pandemic, and that “psychologists didn’t seem to notice when it stopped being altruistic and became manipulative. They have too much power and it intoxicates them”.

Steve Baker, the deputy chairman of the Covid Recovery Group of Tory MPs, said: “If it is true that the state took the decision to terrify the public to get compliance with rules, that raises extremely serious questions about the type of society we want to become.

“If we’re being really honest, do I fear that Government policy today is playing into the roots of totalitarianism? Yes, of course it is.”

'The Vaccine spike protein has peptides from synthetic snake venom attached to it - we've been envenomed!' Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, zinc and VitD3 are all powerful anti-venoms. Why doesn't Fauci want us to take them? (They use ivermectin on farms to protect horses from snake bite.)

In 2016, the Jimmy Carter Center celebrated giving 500 Million (1/2 Billion) doses of Ivermectin to People in Africa. Most donated by MERK.

Jimmy Carter recently Declared... "There Is A God in Heaven". Asked about his Devine Proclamation, Carter replied...For 40 years I lived Fearing that I would Die, being known as the Worst President Ever. "God answered my Prayers & Gave us Joe Biden." I am Finally at Peace, so Mourn Not my Passing.

The Big Pharma has owned a big piece of OUR Federal government for a long time. They are sunk right in. Time to end that whole Healthcare system of corruption.

Eisenhower warned about the Military Industrial Complex...No one warned about the. Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex & the MIC & the PIC work hand in hand.

“We’ve said it before, but now we’re saying it again, and louder: the individuals involved with overseeing and green-lighting COVID-19 injections are a cozy club of insiders whose pockets are now further richly lined with Big Pharma spoils.”

Covid never Isolated we took China's word, and they destroyed the Evidence they used to say it was Isolated.

While the bio-engineered plandemic/vaccine ship might be sinking, the rats always seem to figure out a way to survive and carry on.

The damage this mismanaged 'pandemic' has done will be with us for a long time. Many cannot admit they made a terrible mistake to rush out and get the series of fake vaccine shots and boosters. They did not wait and do their homework; they fell for the massive psy-op. We are in the early stages of witnessing the consequences. The economic and social fallout is monumental as well ... in my opinion, of course.

Most people park themselves in front of television and absorb the propaganda which is then reinforced by other authority figures. Critically thinking people are out there, but are hard to find. I hope the trend is shifting and more will think for themselves.

Watch "The Alpha Warrior show" episode# 35. He had on Dr. Ardis AND Dr. Ben Marvel on (starting at ~ 57:50 mins in), this is the best interview I've seen. Patriot Streetfighter did a good one, but Alpha had BOTH Ardis and Marvel on and they gave a very in depth discussion.

This is not one thing or the other, it is ALL things. At once. The peptids garnered from 36 different animal venoms-20 were snake venom derived. But it is in everything. The tests, the vaccines, the water. All tie in to the fact that this is Mass Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity on a global scale.

I've known for a while that D-Dimer tests can give the best diagnosis on the blood (clots) situation and is the best recommendation to give, if you can get a Dr. to work with you.

But the Alpha interview gives the BEST hope I've seen on how to handle it (THANKFULLY, I've been a smoker for decades now and haven't been sick in almost 8yrs)-in fact, the one and ONLY time I agreed to take a flu shot-I got the worst flu I can ever remember.

But-me AND my daughter have MS. No doubt from our childhood "vaccines", so, they're already slowly killing us (and already murdered my mother with Cancer after she got Cancer laiden innoculations when she moved here at 11yo in the '50s).

We know there's no money in birth and there's no money in death, but keep us "barely living and fully suffering"? They get loads of money and loads of food for their Archon masters.

Another clue?
Long term effects of venom exposure can cause hair loss!
How many women have you heard talk about hair loss after covid?
Look towards the end of the results section.

'Long-term health complications following snake envenoming'!

Best wishes to EVERYone out there, with this situation that has held hostage our whole world. I °DO° know this, they LOSE this battle, so stay strong and ALWAYS keep love in your heart-we WILL get through this together, as the "ONE" that we all are.

A summary of observations about the venom theory:

1) Poisoning the municipal water supplies is impractical on many levels, in that it would take gargantuan effort, literally tons of supplies, and a vast network of co-conspirators. Meaning they would get caught.

2) If the public water supply were contaninated, children would have fallen ill first, and would have died in greater numbers than adults. The data indicates that children were the least affected.

3) Viruses can be engineered to produce any proteins or peptides you desire. It does not have to be put into any water supply. Simply release the virus, and the infected host can begin producing venom within their own cells.

The question of children arises once again: if equally exposed, why do children not produce venom toxins? Do their immune systems lack the ability to fully incorporate the virus? This is definitely possible. There are tons of similar viral examples.

Or, perhaps, is the source not a bioengineered virus?

4) If the latter is the case, then this means the source is an external product that adults use, but children do not.

Something manufactured outside the country, where additive regulation is next to zero, like coffee, for instance.

Toxin-like peptides in plasma, urine and faecal samples from COVID-19 patients.

'Results: Toxin-like peptides, almost identical to toxic components of 'venoms from animals', like conotoxins, phospholipases, phosphodiesterases, zinc metal proteinases, and bradykinins, were identified in samples from COVID-19 patients, but not in control samples.

Conclusions: The presence of toxin-like peptides could potentially be connected to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Their presence suggests a possible association between COVID-19 disease and the release in the body of (oligo-)peptides almost identical to 'toxic components of venoms' from animals. '

Big pushers of these shots, in my recollection, didn't claim they're safe; mostly said are worth the risk. That was the argument. And that, exactly the argument for EUA.

The Big Push was obvious lies about 95% VE. When in fact this always tended towards VE=ZERO.

The fact of the matter: organized medicine [& public health bureaucracy] for decades -- a giant blob of Vaccine Dogmatists [fanatics], including many of the great men and women MDs and researches that subsequently saw the "light" after they regretted getting the spike shots -- and have been most eloquent and courageous in face of threats to their livelihood, reputation and the prestige in which they had lived most comfortably for decades. They were cruelly zapped, spat on, ostracized.

We owe them great thanks for their knowledge and skill and transcendence and their standing shoulder to shoulder with people well below their social class and status. And their leadership!

Imagine practicing medicine 10, 20, 30+ years, and in past two [including clinical 'trial' phase], confronted with great shock that covid shots are a hazard to their patient's health.

During entire careers, just assumed shots on the market are safe, that has been de-facto way things worked, and for many, despite the massive injuries and deaths reported to VAERS since Dec. 2020, the way things mostly still work.

The federal judge that on Monday ended mask mandates on public transportation made plain simple fact the government [CDC] implemented rules without any public comment.

This was the real shot across the bow.

Grown men and women in DC have been hiding; this judge called all of them out for hiding, and failing to bring their public health proposals onto public hearings, so questions could be asked, and answers, demanded.

Ending mask mandates and defeating shot mandates and slave passports in Amherst and Northampton did not involve being nice.

Business owners, some residents, some teachers, some students and a cadre of organized and committed activists started showing up at public meetings, even though they were remote-access, and started letting public officials hiding behind their screens, have it in spades -- demanding to know: why local health officials were ignoring natural acquired immunity & why they were harming their kids.

A year prior, the chief medical officer at one of the hospitals, began doing road shows; problem was, e.g., every time asked if shots for pregnant women were safe, he gave three different answers, also called: equivocation. In his case, he tried to make off they were safe while sometimes admitting there wasn't actually any evidence at all.

Then out of nowhere, Gov. Baker jettisoned his plan for hospitals and doctor offices to exclusively administer the spike shots, and gave that role to chain pharmacies, and other large venues that resembled cattle auctions, [as he did with mass testing].

Baker transformed public health and informed consent into a sport-like spectacle.

Some Massachusetts Democrats in Happy Valley, after seeing what their local, state and national leaders did to their children -- denying them right to attend school -- found their voice.

During darkest days, restaurant owner in Mask-Mandate Amherst told local board of health it is against the HIPPA law for him to inquire of his employees who claimed they had a medical reason not to mask up.

He invited local health inspector to come to restaurant and ask them himself.

Inspector refused, inspector issued fines against restaurant owner who refused to pay.

The town took him to court; judge dismissed the fines. This, during Omicron Vaccine time-period.

The following month, Amherst, and then Northampton, ended their mask mandates.
