On losing friends to the Invasion of the Body Snatchers

As I told Bobby, Phil Kaufman’s 1978 remake of Don Siegel’s 1956 classic is just as good as the original; and it’s even more prescient.

From Bobby Roland:


Having just read your comments around the “BLM hysteric incident,” in particular where you spoke of losing some clear minded friends….. I had to write. I had mentioned that I, and many of my friends are sadly confronted with a loss of a large percentage of friends.

I won’t bore you with the details of my extreme email exchanges with my best friend Mark, who sadly is clinging onto the belief that the “experts” in the corporate media are telling the truth. I’ll just say that when holding his feet to the fire with facts, his hair started to rise and I just had to say the friendship is most important…. and I let it go.

BUT….. I am quite saddened that he is now one of them! Does this not remind you of the movie… “Invasion of the body snatchers?” I offer you two short scenes. And I ask you… Could it be any clearer which side we are on?

We are fighting for humanity! We look around main street and see people with masks….without smiles… without emotions…. walking in fear of others…. looking suspiciously and hatefully at us, and at all those who still stand in dignity to breathe clean oxygen. The mask wearers in following the state dictates are now acting in a robotic, determined, and angry manner towards those who resist. We the healthy are the bio-threat. We who are still as human as we were before the Covid scare began are being scorned by not only strangers, but often by those who we were once quite fond of. They have been taken over by the Gates-Pods!. – “What about love? Will I still love Becky?” – Looking at them gathering the pods, “People I’ve known all my life.”

No kidding Mark. I have been having visions of this movie since this shit began. It really is a wonderful classic movie. And who would have thought when we were so young that it would play true….. but not with pods, but with a nebulous idea of an invisible virus that is out to get us.

One other point. Those on the other side, with the masks…. I’ve realized…. they are more selfish than we, and less courageous. They are so afraid of catching the invisible boogie man, that they are blinded and cannot see the Gates /Gorilla in the room. They refuse to look “beyond” the scare tactics and be clear minded enough to separate fact from ludicrous lies built on greed.

So that’s it. Your comments before the articles and videos are often more poignant than the articles themselves. Keep it up. Lost friendships really hits home with me. Like I said…. I’ve resigned to losing 50% of my friends. Perhaps we should consider it a cleansing or an enema! The ones we are left with will share certain character qualities such as compassion, courage, expansive awareness, succinct analytical skills…. and most of all… a poetic caring for others and what it truly means to be human.

Thanks again for your outreach with the list serve. It has been a great resource for my community. They really appreciate it. We’ve been having BBQ’s once a month at my cabins and it gives everyone a chance to output their feelings… and give hugs!

De Blasio says NYC schools won’t “fully reopen” until there’s a COVID-19 vaccine

This is how they’re forcing it without seeming to use force.

Sweden, which never locked down, sees COVID-19 cases plummet as the rest of Europe suffers spike

Newsweek continues to amaze. Although the Netherlands is also seeing a spike in “cases,” the Dutch government will not mandate mask-wearing, as—like New Zealand’s Ministry of Health—they’ve seen no evidence that masks prevent transmission of COVID-19:

COVID-19: How can I cure thee? Let me count the ways (MUST-READ)

The propaganda drive against HCQ not only misrepresents the efficacy of that drug(along with zinc and Azithromycin), but also tacitly implies that it’s the only COVID-19 treatment currently available, and that there’s no way to strengthen our immune systems sufficiently to keep ourselves uninfected, or, if we catch it, to have mild cases.

Article link:


White BLM hysteric (masked) tells Dr. Immanuel that he’s “blacker” than she is, as he attempts to disrupt physicians’ demonstration for HCQ

This is how the so-called Resistance “thinks” about COVID-19, the lockdowns, HCQ, and everything else—not scientifically, but tribally. Their “logic” is as  follows: “Trump says X. Ergo, not-X must be true; and anyone who even dares to question not-X, much less disagree with it, is pro-Trump—ergo, evil.”

Thus this black-clad white “anti-racist” not only told Dr. Immanuel she isn’t”black like me,” but that her clinical experience with HCQ means nothing, even though it’s saved so many of her patients’ lives (which, apparently, don’t matter much), since Trump has “touted” HCQ, which puts Dr. Immanuel “on the wrong side,” along with those who once “abetted slavery.”

This racist idiot quite clearly has no clue that the attack on Dr. Immanuel, and the anti-HCQ propaganda drive in which it is the latest shot, is at the service of Big Pharma/Gates’ vaccine agenda, which promises to do grave harm to countless black people, among billions of others. That Gates et al. are using black people, in South Africa and Brazil, as guinea pigs for testing that experimental COVID-19 vaccine, and that Melinda Gates has pledged to “vaccinate” black Americans against COVID-19 ASAP (right after the elderly), are facts that such Resistors can’t take in, because Trump is not the bad guy here (although, in fact, he’s actively abetting that agenda). Any movement truly dedicated to the protection of black lives would be demanding that those vaccine trials stop NOW, along with the ferocious propaganda drive against hydroxychloroquine, which is far less expensive, and immeasurably safer, than whatever high-tech serum Gates et al. come up with, and try to force on all the world (themselves excepted)—and which has already saved innumerable black lives throughout the nation and the world.

This last fact was heatedly denied by a Resistor who’s a member of this list, in response to Guy Vantresca’s explanation of how “HCQ+” works, which I sent out earlier today:

O, fer godsakes, Mark & Guy. Stella Immanuel is a rightwing and religious lunatic. Her beliefs — religious and otherwise — are NOT irrelevant if you see that she’s delusional. And listen to that first doctor that spoke in front of the Supreme Court, Doctor, Bob Hamilton, who chose to attack the LA Teacher’s Union for demanding ‘DEFUND THE POLICE” …. can I trust his judgment on anything after that?

What a fool, for taking this important opportunity to basically defend Trump, while never going through any actual studies on HCL.

Pisses me off …. And I’m more than open to solid, fact-based critiques of the medical and pharmaceutical complex. Just because these people are critics, they’re also “true believers” in the cult of Donald. (I wish it were Donald Duck, but they’re both quacks 

(My correspondent ended with a link to an attack on Dr. Immanuel in The Guardian, and the derisive propaganda blast that I’ve attached.)

Note the logic there: Dr. Immanuel is a lunatic, which is not irrelevant “if you see”that she’s a lunatic—along with Dr. Hamilton, who’s opposed to the campaign to “defund the police.” Hence both those doctors are “‘true believers’ in the cult of Donald”—meaning that their clinical experience has no validity, because Trump. That sophistry aside, this isn’t the first time that I’ve been accused of pro-Trump sympathies for questioning the official COVID-19 narrative. On April 30, I sent out F. William Engdahl’s “The Dubious Covid Models, the Test, and Now the Consequences,” an excellent analysis that Global Research has just published; and, soon thereafter, I got this bizarre response from an old (and now former) friend, whose work I’d been promoting for many years:

And how does it feel to find yourself aligned with a bunch of alt-right-sponsored AK-47 (and worse)-toting thugs and brownshirts? Not to mention with the bloated bastard himself and whoever he’s working for? You couldn’t pay me enough to be on their team. About the only thing that would do it is if they threatened the life of my daughter – which I’ve been wondering of late is not something I have to look forward to, their way of transacting business and getting things done [sic].

That this friend’s scholarship is unimpeachable, his mind ordinarily razor-sharp, is something that you’ll have to take on faith; though I couldn’t blame you for doubting it, on the basis of that strident, incoherent rant, and its inane presumption that to note the wild exaggeration of those early COVID-19 “models,” and their catastrophic consequences, is to be “aligned” with violent white supremacists, and “the bloated bastard himself”—since, in that Resistor’s mind, just as in the mind of Bush the Younger, “you’re either with us or against us,” and if you question the official narrative of COVID-19, “you’re against us.” He wouldn’t “be on their team” no matter how much anybody paid him (perhaps implying I’m on Putin’s payroll, or the NRA’s)—as if you cannot disbelieve the CDC and WHO and New York Times without thereby joining that bad “team.”  I could quote other emails just as shrill, irrational, and—again—tribal as that one, from other (former) friends no less intelligent, but who’ve become unhinged by Trump Derangement Syndrome (and, in some cases, by their funding). But there’s no need for that, as these two examples, and the video of that racist hollering at Dr. Immanuel about how black he is, are certainly enough to make the point: This tribal ferocity among “progressives” is, to put it mildly, very bad for all of us. First of all, it’s put “the left” on the same “team” with Fauci/Gates and our Big-Pharma-dependent media, all of them deliberately pooh-poohing an affordable, effective treatment for COVID-19, so as to bring on the global vaccination drive that Gates has indiscreetly called, in public, “the final solution.” And, secondly, that vicious tribal animus has helped immensely to protract and intensify the Great Divide that only serves our overlords, who are sitting prettier than ever, what with We the People at each other’s throats, when we should be “aligned” with one another, against them; but with “progressives” like the ones I’ve quoted here, such solidarity is, if not impossible, a vastly greater challenge than it ought to be.


On the (racist) smearing of Dr. Immanuel

via Elliot Crown, from a friend of his born in South Africa:

”I’m very disappointed to hear people smearing a Nigerian as a whack job because she talks about religion in a very typical way for her country. Most Africans live in rural areas or under served townships. Singing and sermonising in church is our Cinema. The pastors tell the most incredible stories and talk about Demons and Devils. But they are not taken literally. Dreams are encouraged with the drinking of special ceremonial beers and then their content analysed. People discuss issues with the “ancestors” in dreams – a way of objectively looking at your current problems with a friendly sounding board.

“If someone told a Westerner that they were mad for believing Star Wars was real you’d say, of course no one thinks it is real! It’s just a story to explore human relationships and colonialism and Imperialism. Why don’t we extend that respect to Africans?
All these doctors did was say we trust this method and we’ve had encouraging results. Where’s the harm in that? There’s literally no harm at all unless you own a pharma company that got some of the $billions our Govts handed them to develop a vaccine they’ll keep ALL THE PROFITS to”


Michigan hospital study says HCQ treatment for COVID-19 ‘cut death rate significantly’

The Big Lie about HCQ continues, with ever tighter censorship (that deleted tweet of Trump’s concerned the efficacy of HCQ against COVID-19) and ever more virulent character assassination (e.g., the quasi-racist jeering at Dr. Immanuel for her religious views, which bear no relation to her testimony on how well her COVID patients did on HCQ).

All this is at the service of the Gates machine’s big plans for that vaccine. Meanwhile, HCQ has been used successfully against COVID-19 throughout the world, from France to Cuba to Iran to China—which, of course, you’d never know from “our free press,” operating, as it does, in Big Pharma/Gates’ deep pocket.

Update: How “HCQ+” works against COVID-19

From Guy Vantresca:

Based on the real results accomplished at the clinical level, not the studies that were set up to fail (like the retracted Lancet study that purposely, or perhaps, best case, unwittingly failed to test the drug with the right parameters), it becomes clear that HCQ+ works.  The ‘+’ is critical, meaning + azithromycin and Zinc. It works, in the right doses, when applied within the first 5 days of the infection cycle. The Dr. Zelenko protocol has been used on over 1,000 people in his clinic in upstate NY.  Didier Raoult in Marsailles has over 3,000 patients. Both have 95 %+ success with hardly any deaths. Here is a good analogy: a soldier going into battle has a rifle with ammo, and a helmet & body armor for protection. The HCQ is the rifle delivering the ammo (Zinc), and azithromycin is the body armor to reduce side effects. HCQ releases the binding holding SARS COV2 to the cell. Zinc flushes out the virus, and body armor, azithromycin, protects the soldier from blowback.  It is not the only solution, just the one that is readily available everywhere in the world, for cheap.  Unfortunately, HCQ has been politicized, because Trump can’t make a complete argument for anything good, and the drug has been attacked by Big Pharma because the entire 5 day protocol is less than $200.
