no student protests, no unions, no workers, it was really really sad to see, how everyone hung on the lips of the TV talking heads! Students are probably braindead nowadays as well. Where is the times, when farmers and students put hands together to block this kind of crap? And workers having taken their jobs away, some for weeks, some for months, some just plain fired (and some dead) How could this be? If all the small businesses had stayed open, what would the govt have done? If all workers had refused to lock down - if all students had said fk off when the mask and jab mandates came, if everyone (but a few jab happy) had said NO. I just could not believe that in my circle I was the only one who refused - in my church, among my friends NO one read the phizer list of side effects, no one listened when I named the ingredients - how healthy mercury, aluminum, PEG, when injected... no one! Humans are a sad bunch ! thank you all substackers, we kept each other from going insane !

Yep. That was what happened in the unions I've been associated with too. Totally rolled over. I've also written, in my past, about how quickly self-corrupting they are by being totally self-serving after the 'need' part of their creation has passed. Yes, once the work environment no longer maims and kills, and wages are reasonably above minimum required for living, they self-justify into pabulum which allows easy infiltration by whoever wants to.

Unions are simply carbon copies of the system they purport to challenge. You can’t fix a system with the same system, or whatever Albert said.

He wanted us to build new systems. Easier said than done. Probably why I've tried to live as much of my life outside the current systems as possible.

Definitely...All as corrupt, crooked and loyal to The City of London's Committee of 300, ran by the Rothschilds as the rest of the Prostitute Politicians, Deep State Minions and Corporate Capo's.

The greedy and corrupt LOYAL TO THE EUGENICIST TECHNO-FEUDAL FASICSTS ONCE ENSLAVING AND MURDERING THEIR ANCESTORS are delusional to believe it will be any different for them should this Death Cult Mafia become victorious to depopulate and enslave 'The People' once again.

Many have forgotten their family's history...It's only been a few generations ago that their own people were slaves called serfs/peasants who were starved and OWNED NOTHING, overtaxed, kept diseased, ignorant and in poverty... As most had no options in life throughout all time until the Declaration of Independence, Revolution and U.S. Constitution defining INALIENABLE RIGHTS endowed by our Creator.

So many have forgotten that life was for the MASTERS...And, life was merely about 'human rights' granted to sycophants by psycho/sociopathic Predators called Peers, Kings/Queens and now referred to as Dictators owning the land and all production.

They didn't just forget. We've all been raised on cleansed history and the cult of celebrity worship (actor, singer, athlete, supermodel, etc.) is not accidental. It's an intentional subterfuge to boil the frogs.

Concur...And, it's also our fault.

Many of us forgot to tell the kids the history; nobody wrote it down or spoke of it in modern times. There are those passing the stories on and those writing Journals; but overall, people just worked and did a minimum in this pursuit beyond getting to work and getting the kids to their activities, clubs, private schools or vacation.

Evil most certainly did deliberately create social upheaval and temptations into lack of discipline; like homosexuality, free love, feminism and all associated with the 60's/70's and The Prussian-Style Education System since 1960's; to create 'Workers/Slaves' instead of 'Free/Independent/Critical Thinkers'. Mostly...Evil took advantage of the Workers pushing towards 'Upward Mobilitiy'.

This time is teaching all; there are weaknesses and strengths inherent to all Government types and Social Systems.

The truckers in Canada came to their senses quickly and realized they had been lied to. It wasn't "2 and done" or "get the jab then you can go back to normal". They realized it and most importantly they DID something about it. Just what the country needed. A big assed block party with hot tubs for the adults, bouncy castles for the kids and a big single finger salute to the authorities.

They still need our help. Please consider donating if you can. These are the contacts you can use:

Attempted murder against anti-mandate protesters = 1 day to get bail

Never underestimate the sheer brilliance of the covid strategy. “The Left” always prided themselves on their shrewdness in “deconstructing” the media. They were wise to the machinations of the capitalist-run press .... but they had one massive blind spot: Science! They understood the profit driven corruption of every branch of industry .... but somehow the medical industry was exempt. And at the launch of the covid manoeuvre, the rhetoric of the media switched to a Leftist mode with all that “people before profits” and “we’re all in it together” etc.

And so, under the “scientifically validated terrifying pandemic” which (and this was a masterstroke) was brought about by “capitalist recklessness”, the Left was utterly bewitched. Confronted with that delicious anti-capitalist triumphalism, how could they refuse?

But then came the masks which preformed two functions: first, they prompted everyone to become physically involved. This was a very astute psychological move. If people start to behave as if some frankly dodgy assertion is true, then it makes them all the more likely to surrender to it. Second, the mask blocked off the organs of breathe and communication. Everyone’s face was imprisoned in this fabric.

And then there was the distancing. Everyone had to stay away from everyone else. This was further emphasised by the fear that others may have IT – the deadly disease.

And, the most brilliant move of all: the lockdown. Everyone was sent home and had to stay in their houses. Everyone was isolated and helpless before their TVs which thundered the same message at them 24/7.

By these methods, all direct face-to-face communication was abolished. And, as in Orwell’s 1984, the TV took over.

The “beauty” of it is that even those who were utterly sceptical were made to feel that they “ought to just go along with it” since the TV gave them the impression that everyone else was going along with it.

Then the deliberate division sewn by the simultaneous messages that we were all in peril and everyone should get vaccinated .... but it was still up to the individual. And along with that came the sowing of hate toward those “too selfish to submit”. (With various criminally venal celebrities waxing about the dangerous unvaxxed. Thank you Arnold!)

And even that doesn’t cover it all. But none of this would have been possible without the total capture of Leftist institutions. Indeed ALL institutions have been captured. And here was another cunning move: the Left were totally on board with the covid thing. But some scepticism was permitted on the Right – which thereby resulted in scepticism being related to “reaction” and “conservative thought” and “fascism” etc.

It is truly a work of art.

It is indeed. Great summation.

I would add only that "COVID" also depended on the transformation of the left (anti-war, pro-civil rights, pro-worker, anti-censorship) into the identitarian circus that we now all CALL "the left." That transformation started back in the late Sixties, under the patient guidance of the CIA (with the more brutal measures mostly managed by the FBI); and it's THIS "left" that's largely taken over the professions.

Those of us still on that older left are stranded, while all too many others are now sliding very comfortably back into the witness "anticommunism" of the Fifties—an ideology that can and will be used to justify still MORE privation. That's another subject; yet it too attests to the overall brilliance of this GLOBALIST (NOT "communist") conspiracy.

If the labor unions couldn't/wouldn't stand up when it REALLY counted - what is the use of them?

Of the 5% that did stand up most had to be sued by their members to make them do their job. If you have to be sued to make you do your job you need to be fired LOL.

Unions were crippled by pro-business legislation like the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 and the Landrum-Griffin Act of 1959.

Ronald Reagan's brutal crushing of the Air Traffic Controller's strike—and their union, in 1981 encouraged an entire industry of law firms, located mainly in the South but working all over the country, to "discourage" union organizing.

And, yes, there is corruption. As a teacher in New York City for almost 20 years, I had to watch Randi Weingarten, leader of the UFT, sell out our interests again and again. Last I heard of her, she was earning about $500,000 / year, and expended most of her energy posing for photos with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his little rat of a school chancellor, Joel Klein, who was a lawyer by profession and had spent little or no time as a class-room teacher.

Retired teacher in LA; my best friend, still suffering, left the union. Weingarten, the Dianne Feinstein of education, is horrible, but it goes back much further (see linked article). I was always peeved at the "Obama Pass" when it came to accelerating the destruction of education. Arne Duncan was far WORSE than Bush's lame No Child Left Behind crew. The only public intellect who called them out was Diane Ravitch, formerly with the Bush 1 administration. The takeover by parasitic "public-private partnerships," I mean charter schools, was cemented in those years as the unions endorsed Obama's re-election more than a year before the actual date while they periodically and theatrically protested "against charters." This Hollywood writer's strike (yeh, the woke writers are back) seems from the same playbook.

Duncan privatized schools in Chicago and, with Obama, encouraged charter schools in the United States. Obama and Duncan are neoliberals in progressive clothing. I despised everything about them.


Tell has written several pieces about the disaster that is the charter school movement.

I am going to buy his book.

Good comment, Howard.

New York City Committees on Oversight and Investigations & Civil Service and Labor

Gale A. Brewer, Chair, September 9, 2022




DANNY HULKOWER: Hi, my name is Danny Hulkower. I worked for the New York City Department of Sanitation, I was terminated for refusing to take the vaccine.

I think the hardest part of this is the fact that we could have actually ended all this, my department could have done it, but our union said to us, the mandates weren't going to happen, and then it went from, it's not going to happen, they can't do that to you, to, aw, just take it! Just take it!

It was disgusting the way that they handled it, and it was disgusting the way the city handled it. Because we don't even work around the public. You see us working, you don't come running up to us. I mean, it's not like we're interacting with people all day long. And there weren't even that many of us that the union would have had to fight for. But they just didn't bother.

And the worst of this is the fact that I begged my guy, I said, listen, fight this now. Whether or not you're going to take it, whether you believe in it, fight for it now, get, end this. Do not let them do it to you. Why? Because they're going to step up next and take something else from you.

And just yesterday morning the MLC [Municipal Labor Committee, umbrella organization of unions representing city employees] voted to slash 12-126 of the city admin code, which is the city subsidizing the health care for both retirees and current workers. So everybody is pretty much affected by this. And then what's going to happen is, that they're going to force you onto a single payer for-profit health service that is not going to benefit anybody but them. And this is going to go before the City Council soon, and nobody knows about this. I go, I talk to my guys, nobody knows about it.

We went to our union meeting yesterday to confront Harry, and these guys— and there's no shop stewards here. I had information to give to these shop stewards. Nobody's there! Nobody knows what's happening. These guys are living in a tunnel vision, I'm just gonna retire and I'm outta here! Well, good luck with that, because the minute you try to go down to Florida and your healthcare service is gone, you're not going to have any options, you're going to be coming up to New York every time. You can still get GHI in Florida, there's still places to go, it's not going to work if the city has a specific plan just for everybody that's going to be for their benefit only.

the unions have been corrupted since the 1960s and maybe even since the 1940s, think the Mafia and Jimmy Hoffa as just a couple of examples...the Carpenters' Union in NYC where everyone is grandfathered in...from my own experience, probably the union which has the least corruption is the Musicians' Union.
