Was this the reason that the Fed “reported” a technical difficulty to postpone the auction? What’s going on?

Chinese President Xi Jinping took to the virtual Davos stage to address Fed Chairman Jerome Powell with this message: Please don’t lift interest rates.

“If major economies slam on the brakes or take a U-turn in their monetary policies, there would be serious negative spillovers. They would present challenges to global economic and financial stability, and developing countries would bear the brunt of it,” said Xi, according to a transcript of his remarks on Monday.

Of the major central banks, the Fed is expected to be the most aggressive, with financial markets now pricing in four rate hikes, and the U.S. central bank is concurrently expected to start reducing the size of its nearly $9 trillion balance sheet. Yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury TMUBMUSD10Y, 1.873% on Tuesday reached the highest level since January 2020.

Traditionally, Fed officials brush off concerns about how their policies impact other economies, saying they can only make monetary policy for the U.S. economy.

Xi has reason to be nervous about Fed tightening.

Despite tariffs that were started by President Donald Trump and continued under President Joe Biden, Americans are still aggressively buying Chinese products. Through November, China was the No. 1 source of imported goods at $463 billion, topping Mexico at $350 billion and Canada at $324 billion.

From the archives (June 2020): Bolton book adds urgency to Trump bid to depict himself as a China hawk and to paint Biden as a Beijing apologist

Capitol Report (June 2020): Trump asked China’s Xi to buy U.S. farm products to help him win re-election, Bolton book says

Craig Bothan, chief “China+” economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, pointed out that export growth has helped China compensate for weaker domestic growth and propped up its manufacturing sector.

China’s economy continues to slow, falling to a 4% growth rate year-on-year in the fourth quarter from 4.9%. On Monday, the People’s Bank of China cut two policy rates by 10 basis points.

CANADA – Justice Centre files legal action against Seneca College vaccine mandate

The Justice Centre has filed legal action against Seneca College representing four students who are not permitted to return to Seneca College’s campus unless they receive vaccinations intended for the prevention of Covid-19. The students have decided not to receive these vaccines at this time. A court date is pending.

ISRAEL – Israeli vaccine chief: “We have made mistakes”

Professor Cyrille Cohen is head of Immunology at Bar Ilan University and a member of the advisory committee for vaccines for the Israeli Government. In a wide-ranging and forthright interview, the Professor tells Freddie Sayers:

  • The Green Pass / vaccine passport concept is no longer relevant in the Omicron era and should be phased out (he expects it to be in short order in Israel)
  • He and his colleagues were surprised and disappointed that the vaccines did not prevent transmission, as they had originally hoped
  • The biggest mistake of the pandemic in Israel was closing schools and education – he apologised for that
  • Widespread infection is now an inevitable part of future immunity — otherwise known as herd immunity
  • Omicron has accelerated the pandemic into the endemic phase, in which Covid will be “like flu”

The Last Days of the Covidian Cult

This isn’t going to be pretty, folks. The downfall of a death cult rarely is. There is going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth, incoherent fanatical jabbering, mass deleting of embarrassing tweets.

“There’s going to be a veritable tsunami of desperate rationalizing, strenuous denying, shameless blame-shifting, and other forms of ass-covering, as suddenly former Covidian Cult members make a last-minute break for the jungle before the fully-vaxxed-and-boosted “Safe and Effective Kool-Aid” servers get to them.

Yes, that’s right, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the official Covid narrative is finally falling apart, or is being hastily disassembled, or historically revised, right before our eyes.

As Klaus Schwab said:  the pandemic represent[ed] a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”

And now the clock is running down, and the resistance isn’t crushed … on the contrary, it is growing. And there is nothing GloboCap can do to stop it, other than go openly totalitarian, which it can’t, as that would be suicidal.”

Ebola Gain of Function Research – NIH Ebola Research exploring how Ebola spreads

Texas Bio Medical Research Center

This research is funded by two R21 grants #AI151717 and #AI154336 from National Institutes of Health National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases.

Two new Ebola grants support Ebola research exploring how Ebola spreads in the body with implication for targeted Ebola viral treatments

Dr. Shtanko is also excited to explore a possible alternative mode of spread — tunneling nanotubes, dynamic connections between cells, which allow cells to communicate by exchanging content over relatively long distances (up to 200 microns).

Dr. Shtanko, Ph.D., a Staff Scientist at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed), has received more than $1 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explore different aspects of Ebola virus infection. Understanding how cells become infected is critical to identifying and designing therapies that target viral replication and spread in a host.”

THE NEW NARRATIVE

From Jeff Childers . Here’s the Deal !

According to the Financial Times (UK), Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, one of our newest billionaires, said late Sunday that he thinks there will be a “return to normal life” sometime IN THE SPRING. Like maybe around the beginning of March or something like that? Right on time for the State of the Union! What a brilliant coincidence.

Bourla credited the vaccines and mass testing for ending the pandemic, of course, even if he was a smidge sketchy on the specifics or the details. Welcome to Narrative 2.0: the pandemic is now endemic thanks to the aggressive injection and testing policy of Josef Robinette Biden, Jr.

The big-pharma executive said that the key going forward will be therapeutics, and fortunately for everyone, Pfizer is all ready to sell some to the government. Open up your wallet! Last month, the FDA approved Paxlovid for early Covid treatment, and just like that, the U.S has already bought 10 million doses; UK snapped up 250,000; and Australia has pre-ordered half a million more. Business is good.

Just for interest, the Wikipedia entry for Paxlovid includes a helpful fact-checking section “debunking” claims that the drug is really just “Pfizermectin.” So please quit using that term. In July last year, Wikipedia’s co-founder Larry Sanger said nobody should trust the platform anymore. So.

…………………

? Bloomberg ran another Narrative-approved story yesterday, headlined “Fourth Pfizer Dose Is Insufficient to Ward Off Omicron, Israeli Trial Suggests.” The story explains that the researchers found that, while the 4x jab raises ANTIBODIES, it still doesn’t actually protect people from Covid. In other words, what the vaccines can’t do anymore is prevent transmission, or something like that.

But that’s not all. The article — in Bloomberg! — reminds readers that “last week, European Union regulators warned that frequent Covid-19 booster shots could weaken the immune system and may not be feasible.” Pretty scary. Good thing they reminded us and repeated that warning. It also quotes an Israeli researcher concluding that, meh, who needs these boosters? She said, “the results didn’t support a wider rollout to the whole population.”

So … we’re at the point now where government-controlled Corporate Media — and Bloomberg is right there with CNN — are starting to write scary stories about the JABS while publishing good-news stories about the virus. Do you have whiplash yet? I know a good chiropractor.

? A January 7th article in Bloomberg got this Narrative-approved headline: “Omicron Study in South Africa Points to End of Acute Pandemic Phase.” You think I’m being cynical? Why is the article located in Bloomberg’s “Politics” section, and not its Health news section?

The subhead reads “Study at large hospital shows significantly milder disease … End of the ‘epidemic phase of the Covid pandemic’ seen.”

The epidemic is almost over!

The reporter notes that the study “suggests omicron may be a harbinger of the end of the epidemic phase of the Covid pandemic, ushering in its endemic phase.” Phases.

The article also included LOTS of cheerful data points from a roundup of different South African sources:

— just 4.5% of patients with Covid-19 died during their hospital stay in the current wave compared with an average of 21% in earlier waves

— Hospital stays averaged 4 days compared with 8.8 in previous waves

— Admissions to intensive-care units dropped to 1% of patients from 4.3%

I bet you Sweden is pretty mad right now. South Africa gets all the credit, even though the Swedes have been doing it for a year. What can I tell you? Life isn’t fair.

There are numerous tells popping up all over. GL pointed out the delayed treasury auction.The spike in interest rates and stocks dropping are confirmation while neither is a surprise.

According to the consolidated register of gas storage facilities of the European association Gas Infrastructure Europe, Germany’s gas storage facilities are 50.6% full (as of January 11, 2022),” the German Ministry of Economy said in response to a deputy’s request as quoted by RIA. “This corresponds to a theoretical working gas availability of 17.7 days,” it added.

This comes as Russian energy giant Gazprom said on Monday it has not booked any capacity to pump gas to Europe through the Yamal pipeline next month.

SOME THOUGHTS FROM GREAT BRITAIN

Fully Asked me for an update .

Yes, it feels like we are making a turn here, fingers-crossed. There is another raft of stats that demolish the MSM narrative. And you have already observed much of it on goldtent. Here is my general view of the themes that dove-tail with this and that have helped contribute to the fightback:

– Government hypocrisy, dishonesty & incompetence; The conservatives are on 20 illegal parties during lockdown. I think Labour are on 2 or 3 now. (The press are wreaking havoc. I am worried that there will be a palace coup that puts the lockdown hawks back in power. But I don’t yet sense any organised forces at work).

– The massive Shropshire by-election loss for the govt represented these themes:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-59693102

– It is an open secret that the govt’s private polling shows the public have had enough. Even Labour voters (the UK’s Democrat Party) have had enough.

– Govt and MSM lies simply don’t match up to people’s daily experience. Sufficient numbers can now see this is not a deadly pandemic and many know people damaged by the vaccine. Many of my family and friends will not be getting any more jabs because they can see they don’t really work.

– Grass roots activism has begun to harness this public anger. I helped in this campaign a little, which is trying to direct this anger into the polling booth:

https://twitter.com/alanvibe?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

– The Trusted News Initiative newspapers have softened massively too. Even the Guardian (like the NYT here) which wanted us all locked down for-ever now publish balanced articles:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jan/16/encouraging-signs-plan-b-covid-measures-may-soon-be-lifted-in-england

– Media and opinion formers who represent us have damaged the MSM and changed the narrative hugely: GB News, Talk Radio, Russell Brand (surprisingly), Matt Le Tissier, Neil Oliver and many more. They are openly spreading the message now. GB News in particular interview Drs Malone, Yeadon etc…

– Reform UK is a new political party that I have worked with (it spun out of Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party). It is essentially a Brexit style populist party. Richerd Tice is the increasingly impressive leader:

https://twitter.com/TiceRichard?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

ReformUK are polling near 20% in some really important swing seats equivalent to Pennsylvania in the USA. Both the Conservatives and Labour know they have a fight on their hands and need to drop lockdown policies, masks in schools, as well as their green policies which are slapping huge energy bills on the public.

So all this and much more account for a turn here. It may pick up steam. I even wonder if the government may U-turn on mandatory vaccines for NHS staff. Everyone can see it makes no sense and will lead to many needless deaths from cancelled operations etc…

Many European countries have similar protest movements. But sadly to no avail. Given this, I don’t think anyone can afford NOT to ask this question:

Why is the UK and much of the USA living in relative freedom, when Germany, Austria, France, Italy and many more countries have now finished their journey back to fascism?

Australia and Canada have been the big surprises. But I believe both of these have their explanations; Australia has long been subverted by China. Almost every Govt institution and large business in Australia is influenced by the CPC.

https://www.civitas.org.uk/press/chinas-long-march-through-the-international-institutions-and-how-the-uk-should-respond/

(It would be good to know Fully’s thoughts on Canada.)

But in the UK and many parts of the USA it seems that some quality has allowed just enough people to break free from the group think, the fear and the lies and to fight for freedom. Long may it live….

In my weekend piece “Black Swan Weekend” I posited that while the first part of my Two Themes had begun immediately with the new year, the two, weren’t yet correlated.

It looks like it will start to trickle in this week and become a cascade in the weeks and months to come. This is only week three of 2022, let the fun begin.

Don’t Underestimate How Badly The Powerful Need Control Of Online Speech

There is nothing, literally nothing, that these people would not do to maintain this control. Their very survival depends on it

“Seems like almost every day now the mass media are blaring about the need for speech on the internet to be controlled or restricted in some way. Today they’re running stories about Joe Rogan and Covid misinformation; tomorrow it will be something else.

The problems change, but the solution is always the same: increased regulation of speech by monopolistic online platforms in steadily increasing coordination with the US government.

Controlling the thoughts we think about our nation and our world are of paramount importance to our rulers, because it’s only by controlling what we think that they can control how we vote, how we act, and whether or not we get fed up with being exploited and oppressed by a loose alliance of unelected plutocrats and government operatives. There is nothing, literally nothing, that these people would not do to maintain this control. Their very survival depends on it.”

Make Preparations! Canadian Cross Border Trucking Vaxx Mandate Now In Effect, Domestic Trucking Mandate Starts Next Week

The cross border vaccine mandate for truckers in/out of Canada is now in effect.  The U.S. vaccine mandate takes effect on January 22nd.

Keep in mind, any impact is taking place in a supply chain system that is already tenuous and unstable at best.  A small disruption that may have been minimally significant against a fully operational supply chain, is more likely to be a much bigger disruption in a supply chain that is already under a severe amount of demand side stress.  Somewhere in the range of 16,000 to 38,000 daily loads are likely to be impacted.

you should listen cause it effects America too
