Weekend links 17/12-19/12

This week we started seeing COVID cases take off again in NSW and VIC as people started moving around and partying fearlessly like they were told to. The hope is that due to the vaccines that hospitalisations won’t take off. It might be too early to call the trend, but the right hand side of these charts is nudging up.

The links for the protest marches don’t seem to be working. How did they go?

Ramjet

Great work putting the links together Robert.

T

Yep they are really good. Does anyone have any idea why the whole great resignation thing is being pushed?

I keep seeing it everywhere. I assume it’s lies, and people are actually desperate for jobs, but it’s surprisingly slick propaganda.

Trying to work out why someone is pushing it.

Agent 47

Largely a cover for mandates.

However there are some people who probably realised they gated their jobs and are changing to something else.

Also the free gibs COVID payments the last 12 months.

Peachy

Largely a cover for mandates.

you mean people getting fired for not complying with the mandates, right?

Agent 47

Yes or resigning by totally not being coerced.

LSWCHP

My employer tried getting tough with me a few weeks ago. I told them to carry on and sack me then, and they quickly folded.

emusplatt

they folded coz they’re pissants or they’re waking up?

LSWCHP

Because they’re pissants. They’d like to sack me and the other members of the resistance, but they know it would be a shocking blow to morale to terminate 10% of the company, and more importantly, most of us have very rare skills that can’t be replaced at the moment because nobody is replying to the job ads. We’re struggling to meet deadlines as it is.

money talks, hey? Ideology or bullying might be nice, but not so attractive if it’s going to immediately hit you in the back pocket by denting revenue 😌

but this sort of stuff tends to be quite corrosive in the medium term. Now that you (“and the resistance”) have realised how little care or loyalty the employer has towards you, the goodwill is burnt and people will look for other work and leave, in time.

emusplatt

well fk ’em. I hope you can find your way out of their employment and shit all over them on the way out

I was talking with someone about that today… I got sacked for not taking jabba-dabba but because I signed resignation documents effectively I left the workforce.

Anyone notice, but at the same time that NSW and VIC allowed more freedoms for the unvaxxed, they are doing away with 72 self isolation for international arrivals. As we know, Omicron hitched itself on an international arrival, so we can expect more to come. Most of all, the ponzi states get their ponzies into overdrive and will blame the unvaxxed for the increase in cases.

Going by this article, my take is that let it rip will be the next thing. (Because this kind if opinion would’ve never made it to publishing at lower Mr NA clinical trial participation rate)

Freddy

Perrottet indicated no more lockdowns. I expect a backflip on that at least large gatherings. Those who have booked a ticket for the SCG Test are probably going to be disappointed.

I also note that poster child Denmark now has partial lockdowns and mandatory facemasks.

Vaccinazi

Masks even if not policed for perfect use tend to stop infected from spreading it, which imv is important now that we have supposed 94% of super heroes whom will succumb only to kryptonite after 2 jabba-dabba.

15. Dec did not end the PHO, at least not more than just one single snippet of it. Jabberwocky is still mandated in 60-70% environments, directly or indirectly.

I agree.

Netherlands is now considering another hard lockdown.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/dec/17/prime-ministers-office-cant-find-sports-rorts-document-requested-by-rex-patrick-under-foi

Independent senator Rex Patrick has condemned the prime minister’s department for claiming it cannot find a key letter from Christian Porter to Scott Morrison about the sports rorts affair, a position seemingly at odds with the attorney general’s office, which has fought to keep the document secret.

Patrick decided to lodge an FOI request with the department of prime minister and cabinet for the same document.To his surprise, the department said it could not find the letter, despite Porter’s office having confirmed it was sent to the prime minister and classified as a cabinet document.

I agree with you. The amount of celebrities, sports stars and academics that I might have previously liked or respected has now been reduced to almost none of them. The majority of them are living in fantasy land. They have no clue what is happening in the real world.

Peachy

that article is a bit of a smear on Choamo, I think.

if you listen to the video that the article is commenting on, then you will see that he is not saying much more than the old adage that “The right to swing your fist ends where the other man’s nose begins.“

Vaccinazi

I disagree.
I see it from a perspective that if my nose is there, no one should swing a fist in any direction because of a 0.5% chance it may hit me axcidentally and there is a 0.05% chance I may bleed and die.
Comparing smallpox vaccine with Mr NA and Astra Zenga is preposterous. Unless, the question about waxing was related to proper vaccines. But even then, claiming that unvaccibated should remove themselves because they can “harm others because they are unjabbed” is wrong on all levels.

I noticed that Chomsky of the last 5-10 yrs is a corporate leftist and quite different to dissident Chomsky of yesteryears. In another interview about 5yrs ago he failed to make a clear condemnation of atrocities committed by Imperial Forces and justified US interventions like that one in Iraq, Afghanistan etc.

here is a nice video for anyone interested in money mechanics and banking

they keep it simple and hit all the major talking points – a lot of the questions I have had

having said that he glosses over a couple of things, and a couple of points that others dispute (for instance, that the fed doesn’t buy from primary dealers)

worth a look for everybody – then we can argue here later

Freddy

I did listen to that early this week. Steven Van Metre is adamant there is no printing and that the money to buy bonds comes from other places like reserves. That might be true. I don’t think it matters where the money is coming from. Bonds are being purchased. You cannot deny that simple fact. That means money that has been sitting idle (reserves, other accounts, whatever) has been deployed to buy bonds.

The previous owners of those bonds now have to do something with that money. The act of selling the bonds implies they will chase more yield or speculate on asset prices. If they were going to sit in cash they would not have sold the bonds in the first place.

Coming

I’m not sure

The previous owners of those bonds now have to do something with that money. The act of selling the bonds implies they will chase more yield or speculate on asset prices. If they were going to sit in cash they would not have sold the bonds in the first place.

It all depends who the owner of the bonds were, and what they exchanged the bonds for.

Let’s say the fed can only purchase from commercial banks with reserves, so it doesn’t create any new money/deposits.

HOWEVER, there are now fewer bonds for private entities (individuals, super funds etc) to purchase.
When a private entity purchases a bond from the government, doesn’t that money effectively disappear from the system? It is no longer counted in M2, because it isn’t in the commercial banking depository system?

I guess someone would say that the money is now in the treasury account , which is all part of the same thing (eventually gets redistributed back into the economy and banking system via government spending)

In that case, if the fed is only exchanging reserves for bonds, then all it does is reduce rates and increase asset values

This is paradoxically deflationary – since there is now the same amount of actual money available as before, but now used to buy more expensive assets rather than being used for consumption.
(as van Metre says)

On the other hand, if the fed is crediting private entities with deposits (and reserves to that private entities bank), then its frankly money printing

Joseph Wang claims it is, which is in direct contradiction to what van metre says
https://fedguy.com/quantitative-easing-step-by-step/

I can’t find any official statement or data on this which seems absolutely bizarre – like what % of bond purchases are directly through the reserve system, and what % is via the dealers
I have also asked joseph wang the question on twitter, but he never answered
This makes me think he is probably wrong, as it seems like that data should exist if what he says is true

Wowee. About a week ago I was watching an episode of.. I think it was the Flash? In short, a former bad guy turned good gives herself up for past crimes, and is going to be forcibly given the metahuman vaccine by the state to take away her powers. However, the other good guys sabotage the supply. In the end the authorities still had a secret supply, so the heroine asks for a life sentence without parole instead! I’ll be damned if there’s not a message in that.

IMO, the fact so many Australians scream ‘Nazi Germany’ instead of ‘Bolshevik Russia’ to describe the current situatuon is proof the communists won WW2 and took control of the education system.

nah, it’s simpler than that. About 100% of people know about nazi germany and ww2.

about 5% of people know about the Soviet Russia or the revolution that preceded it.

Solzhenitsyn turning in his grave.

…and much less than 1% have read Solzhenitsyn.

people talk about what they know. They can’t talk about what they don’t know.

Coming

But why do they “know” about it ?

who is in charge of the media ?

Agent 47

Yes. This exactly.

Europa The Last Battle is the best documentary of the last ten years.

Peachy

So, the Bolshies actually secretly won the Cold War and have implemented global control of the media, in order to hide their actions in the 1920s-1980s.

the control is implemented very subtly, such that you can still buy Solzhenitsyn’s book & other such materials, but through social engineering and distraction they ensure that less than 1% of people do?

and they continue to maintain this media control 30 years after the apparent fall of their 70yr regime?

this seems very Keyser Soze…

if you believe that, then you shouldn’t be taking any comfort from Israel’s embracing of the jabs….Because if the Jews won world war 2, they have clearly demonstrated an amazing ability to sacrifice the majority of their population to attain some future goal.

bjw678

Because the russkies were on “our” side for the massive propaganda blitz that was the second instalment of the World War series.
When they became the enemy, it was as a justification for military spending and to be the boogie man, and internal atrocities really don’t help with that.
History is written by the victors, and always has an agenda.

yes thats exactly correct

By “Our” side, of course, you mean the bankers

which is why China is our new enemy, since they have closed their markets and appear to be threatening the capitalist/debt edifice both internally and globally

It never ceases to amaze me how stupid the propaganda is, and people fall for it anyway.

Unfortunately you have to get tested and show proof to cross most interstate borders.

My work has been fairly good in not demanding regular tests after showing proof of vaccination, but there are others out there where they’re still enforcing 2 weekly tests which seems pointless in asymptomatic staff.

bjw678

It’s pretty clear that vaccination status doesn’t mean much regarding infection status given the current events.

jbarham

Screenshot of article by Nathan Grills (from his Twitter account): https://twitter.com/nandcgrills/status/1471448212489728002

Peachy

thanks jbarham – Grills’s take is quite balanced and sober and probably maxes out what’s currently acceptable in a mainstream publication.

sensible points like:

  • difference between 93% and 97% jab rate is bugger all from a public health perspective
  • Jabbed are ONLY 40%-50% less likely to spread the disease compared to unjabbed. Even poorer than 40% effectiveness against spread with new strain
  • the people who have refused so far would rather leave or die than accede
Vaccinazi

That 40 to 50 per 100 chance is heavily offset by jabbed being 1. less likely to be aware they are infectious, 2. Fcuk this quarantine sheet, I am jabbed and this is just a bad flu and will not get tested, 3. Unless it is kryptonite, I am jabbed and nuttin will get me so I can mingle with anyone.
In real life this has become illness of waxed due to other , usually lateral factors becoming prevalent.
Come March and April when 94% of jabbed become unjabbed the true acidity test will show.
Today at the GP whilst I was receiving my second dose of a vaccine (that is a proper and tested one), there were swaths of Asians coming to enquire abut ‘rooster’. Being that only the Mr NA is approved, these were despatched elsewhere. 3/4 of Asians were Chinese.

This always gives me the shits. I think overall stigma towards mental illness has reduced which is a good thing with more people seeking help, but the downside is that it’s also become an identity statement for others who essentially have “shit life” syndrome that no amount of medication or therapy will ever change.

Self diagnosis is rife, and it’s also quite interesting that a number of Greens identifying posters demonstrate extremely vicious behaviour online, yet hide behind multiple mental illness labels as some kind of justification for their actions or life of failures. Typically it’s blamed on ADHD or Aspergers, although I have seen plenty of patients with these diagnoses who are relatively well adjusted and functioning humans who don’t fly off the handle at the slightest provocation.

It’s often self defeating too. I can remember reading a tweet by someone bitching about their “OCD” and how they didn’t want medications and were just hanging out for the DSP. Now I’ve treated people with serious dysfunction – eg. one who would spend 23 hours a day in their bathroom on their cleaning compulsions to studying at uni, completing a degree and holding down full time work. But you can’t point out that there is treatment for these conditions, “because mental health costs too much,” or you have to wait too long or “doctors are on the big pharma payroll and they want to put me on antidepressants” (which is the evidence base for OCD), or “they want me to stop my weed habit.” With some people there’s always some kind of excuse to justify maintaining the status quo of victimhood. I suspect there’s an element of gain from online validation and sympathy which becomes a vicious cycle, so I have just learnt to ignore the online martyrs.

Peachy

👏👏👏
Indeed, there is a world of difference between – on one hand – removal of stigma from mental illness which enables sufferers to publicly “own” the fact that they are affected, without being viewed as a danger or a write-off-of-a-person.

…and – on the other hand – announcing such an illness as a ticket to permanent victimhood, martyrdom and green pass for being a fuckwit to everyone.

xxxxxxxxxxx

Not just that, but a label to brand your politcal opponents if they voiced dissenting views. The scope of mental illness will extend to those who express distrust of their government and claim that goverments do not act in the interest of their citizens

they obviously said that kids need two doses, before. Were they wrong? How can science be wrong?!

I suspect that similar powers are “on the books” in many places. But these sorts of brute force measures have not been rolled out anywhere that I have heard of.

this stuff is obviously multiple orders of magnitude more coercive than “you can’t go to Myer”, so probably something to keep up the sleeve for a zombie apocalypse situation.

pnut5678

I hope you are right and that these will never be considered but after what we have seen over the last 24 months the temptation may be too much for the authorities to resist. It does look as though we are heading there incrementally. I reckon the authorities hope is that they won’t need to and that people acquiesce but if there is only a few thousand stragglers they might stick the boot in just for show.

Peachy

Can’t argue with any of that, mate.

tenptation would definitely be there and they’d love to make some examples, I’m sure.

but it would need to be a longer-term project. Only really viable once all the senior judges (state supreme/appeal courts and the fed high court) have been replaced by suitable puppets (or placed under effective control with suitable kompromat)

Not necessarily a zombie apocalypse situation. A banking collapse would do it. People having no access to money, food, petrol, electricity or people being kicked out of homes when their loans get called in prematurely.

This has got me wondering if these coercive measures around a treatable condition caused by a cold virus, particularly the omicron strain, is just prepping us to accept smilar or worse measures on our freedoms when the banking system finally collapses

tests take a day or two or three, so they are out of date by the time you receive the results. Someone with a negative result from 2 days ago might have been infected yesterday….

Yes. Fair point about isolating for chemo. Bad example. I just find it silly ridiculing people who are taking the test to protect parents or grandparents over xmas. They are doing what you are asking in getting on with their lives and spending time with family.

i know where you’re coming from. But it does seem futile to me.

if the vaccines don’t really prevent transmission or infection, then parents/grandparents are going to get infected anyway over the next year or two.

possibly it’s better to have this happen sooner while they are younger, and it’s summer and the current variety of the bug seems mild. Or maybe it’s better to have it later, when the fuckwits stop fucking stalling and obstructing and actually roll out some effective fucking treatment protocols…

Agent 47

Initially when this first hit I had the same apprehension everyone else did. But it became obvious very quickly that this is very minor and is now nothing to do with public health and a greater game is being played.

It is now essentially evolved into mass formation and the real pandemic is people not wanting to accept that they may have been wrong about any or all of this. My observations take it or leave it.

I like you was fooled into the panic by the collapsing in the street and carry on in China, and when I found out that it was man made I started to investigate more and my fear went away as the data became evident, like the hot by a bus “died with covid” added to the deaths etc. As the suppression of other treatments was evident I became more scared of the vaccine then the virus, now after my daughter getting pericarditis and a lot of friends with vaccine injuries I would rather lick a lab rat than take the vaccine, I think the real virus is Fauci and his ilk.

 I just find it silly ridiculing people who are taking the test to protect parents or grandparents over xmas.

I fi it silly that people who were happy to soldier on and come to work when sick all of a sudden are worried about making others sick,.

The lock us down crowd benefit financially from lockdowns. The scientific response to Covid left the building a long time ago.

bjw678

It seems pretty clear at this point that lock us down will only lead to more lock us down. it doesn;t make it go away, merely delay it and the vax has clearly not done anything to prevent the spread.

Can we just declare WA the 29th CCP province and be done with it?

Chinese Astroturfer

Maybe, maybe not. I’m surprised it’s not more under control here given it’s the middle of summer.

Come August, all the footy will be played in front of a couple thousand people or no crowds at all, much of the country under restrictions again, 2 week quarantine reinstated. I don’t think they’ll go as hard as a Melbourne lockdown again, but definitely for the unvaxxed.

I think they just wanna get the foreign students and ‘skilled’ workers over here early next year while there’s a window before the cold weather hits or COVID gets out of control.

This Julian Hill sounds Kristina Keneally. Unemployable outside of politics. Parachuted into a safe seat with no connections to constituents. They seem to put the most woke into the most socially conservative seats. Then wonder why they can not connect with people.

Got to be political suicide if he pulls that trigger. Same with Dom in NSW. How can you possibly explain your way out of that?

Ramjet

And yet international arrivals don’t even have to self isolate for 72 hours. And Dom wants hundred of thousands of them and same with Dictator Dan. Expect compulsory masks, huge fines for not checking in, random 14 self isolation for close contacts but the planes will keep coming.

It’s some what out of control in NSW in the middle of summer. It’s going to be 10x higher in winter. They’ll wimp out and bring back all the heavy restrictions for winter.

Said since July he’d wimp out come winter.

The proportion of the population born overseas is 29.8 per cent” from the migration article.

FFS. We really are nothing more than an economic zone. No wonder the place is so fucked up. No ties of blood or shared community, just a vast seething pool of largely third world dimwits who consume greatly while contributing little.

My family settled here in the 1850s and farmed the land, built roads, built ships, built houses…we built this place.

I have no more in common with that 29.8% than I do with Martians. They can all fuck right off.

Agent 47

I suspect there would by quite a few of the post WW2 euros in that mix (My old’s would be) as well as kiwis but the number of Pajeets and Chongs we’ve brought in the last few years has blown it the fuck out.

I saw an article the other day showing non European migration into Denmark was costing it 5 billion euros a year. Imagine how much that is costing us.

mate you kidding, right?

the housing market has been made to be worth $9 trillion.

a few billion per year is a small price to pay for this.

Agent 47

Sure, costing us a heap. Costs the elite nothing.

Ramjet

Absolutely by design. Mass Immigration is the perfect policy for the elites, they get investable asset inflation and the deplorables get stagnant real wages and other costs.

Chinese Astroturfer

Since COVID hit I have very little in common with the other 70% as well.

i thought this was hilarious

interesting the Americans haven’t fully comprehended the truth of EZFKUSA

very MB-esque smugness about how over priced housing is
“there’s no upside , only downside”
“interest rates can’t go lower”

I remember when DLS told me I was picking up pennies in front a steam roller in 2015 when I said I was buying any Sydney property that wasn’t nailed down

Freddy

Australia has variable rate mortgages. I can understand the confusion that if rates were to rise substantially that house prices will fall substantially. The truth is rates would only rise substantially if wages were also rising, and any substantial falls would mainly be in real rather than nominal terms.

In USA though, they generally have rates fixed for the entire term of the loan. If rates were to rise substantially it doesn’t affect repayments on existing mortgages. In fact, it would be a leg up because it also means wages are rising and repayments becoming easier.

this logic only applies on the way up, of course.

on the way down, rates can fall without declines in wages and prices can rise in nominal terms, as well as real.

Freddy

There is also the recent perverse situation where we get price inflation without corresponding wage inflation meaning there is less income available to service debt. You end up with price inflation leading to interest rate cuts which is the opposite of the common understanding.

Of course you need some special kind of numberwang to be able to push through interest rate cuts when prices are actually rising:

less income per person. This is something that you can fix by pumping up the number of persons in the country and the average number of persons per unit.

oh yes. I think that, in general, once you confer “too big to fail” (or similar)status on something (anything), then the regular causality chain begins to run in reverse.

here it’s house prices and bank profits… rather than rising and falling with peoples incomes, as prior to their deification, they now move in opposite directions.

Very similar thing with how countries have gone “all in” on Covid vaccines etc….

Strong shades if “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength”

Ramjet

Anyone who listened to DLS in 2015 would be much poorer compared with yourself. They still haven’t worked out that MPLOL is not designed to reduce prices, but rather help the elite and be seen to do something.
How much have Sydney house prices increased since 2015? No doubt they will be forecasting Armageddon again for June 2023. EmBee is dangerous to your financial health.

The commenters on EmBee are smug and believe that more immigration will not put a rocket under house prices as the new arrivals can’t get debt to buy houses.🤦 I argued with someone about that the other day and emphasised that volume is important. No one cares who buys it.

Peachy

yep. Crowd the people in and more will buy at higher prices. Doesn’t matter which one of them buys.

it also helps improve rental yields, of course, and the increasingly cramped conditions help condition (haw haw) the new buyers to accept less house and land for more money.

Something tells me this is something worth bookmarking for a couple of months time.

Sounds like a feature article that you might be writing 😄

Ramjet

If they did enact a lockdown, it would be like the recent one in Melbourne. A lot followed the rules, many stretched the rules and others selectively followed the rules. The guy on the corner had his Friday afternoon drinks with mates even through lockdown.

Australia could have lived a Covid free life, but that would mean that there would be no population ponzi and a big quarantine centre required. No appetite for either and here we are.
