As you know, we’ve created a special page for yearly subscribers on my substack.  If you’ve missed that announcement, read about it here.

For months now, I’ve been posting original articles on that special page (called “Jon Rappoport 2”).  Well, now I’m launching PODCASTS there as well, in addition to the podcasts I’ve been doing all along.

These separate podcasts, for yearly subscribers only, will cover the deep aspects of the medical cartel (based on 35 years of research); a “writer’s notebook” series on what it means to be a writer (after 67 years at the typewriter and the keyboard); and all sorts of commentary on current cultural developments and lunacies I can’t restrain myself from covering.

When I started this Substack, I told you I was going all in.  That’s exactly what I’m doing.  No holds barred.

If you aren’t already a yearly subscriber, jump in.  The yearly cost is only $60. All for the cost of one thin Biden burger, one egg, a gallon of gas, and three postage stamps.

* If you’re already a yearly subscriber, you already have access. (see below)

* If you haven’t yet subscribed, do it now, and make it a yearly subscription. (see below)

FREE Podcast: Why Do I Spend My Time Fighting All This Bullshit?

Or, Have We Reached Paradise Yet with the Rainbows and Marshmallows?

Anyone can listen. You don’t have to be a subscriber.

by Jon Rappoport

October 25, 2022

Let me briefly cover the warm part first. You have no idea (or maybe you do) what it means for a writer to have an audience like this. Like you. People who want to read. Who show up. Who hang in there over time.

The word “appreciate” doesn’t begin to explain it. I salute and thank you. You’re like—very much like—an old friend—who comes to the house one day out of nowhere. VERY GLAD TO SEE YOU.

That’s prime number one. What follows is a longer explanation of the second thing.

On this podcast, I’ll be talking about why I keep writing at age 84, why I never fell for opportunities to write for the mainstream, why I stayed independent for the past 40 years, why I’ve been writing every day online for the past 22 years, and what it means to STAY INDEPENDENT.

Part of what’s happening in this culture is the silencing of independent voices. The voices who aren’t going along with the show, with the people in control.

Even in so-called alternative media today, there are rules. There are subjects writers aren’t supposed to touch. Why? Because the publishers are afraid of losing their audiences.

They’re CALCULATING how far they can go. They’re profiling their audiences and considering the topics that will fly and those that won’t.

They’re worried about pushback.

They’ve built a certain piece of turf and they want to protect it.

And this doesn’t just go for the permitted SUBJECTS of writing. It also goes for the permitted STYLES of writing.

“We can’t publish this piece. Our readers will object. They’ll be offended.”

Yeah, I understand that. I’ve been ignoring it for a long time.

For decades, I’ve been building my own outpost, my own island, my own media operation, my own independent place, come what may.

Because it was necessary, if I was going to keep writing, and keep writing the way I wanted to.

And along the way, I’ve been encouraging other writers to do the same.

ACTUAL writers are strange. They don’t go along to get along. Far worse, they’re always probing to find new ways of writing. They don’t stay the same. They HAVE TO keep looking for THE NEW. Otherwise, they’ll bore themselves to death.

That’s not a curse. It’s not some kind of victim back-story. It’s the plain truth.

This search for something new, something More, gives readers a different and unique experience. It may or may not be the kind of experience some readers want.

But the writer isn’t pandering to an audience.

I’m not cultivating you. I’m not tending to you like a garden. I’m not figuring all the possible angles when I write a piece. I’m not asking myself whether you’ll accept what I’m saying or the way I’m saying it.

If I were doing that, if that was the road I’d been walking all this time, I would have cut out long ago and gone to work for a major newspaper and worked my way up the line. By now I’d be a standard asshole who retired. I’d be seeing my doctor for various conditions. I’d be reminiscing with friends about days of yore and clucking about how odd the current culture is.

I never was on that road.

And when the road I HAD chosen became too predictable, I started a new one.

This one, here on substack, is a new one.

As I say, your support for my work is much appreciated. But I’m not tailoring my work to get that support. I’m not fishing in that water.

If you support what I’m doing, it’s because you want to. Which makes it all the better.

I’m at war with this culture. On all sorts of levels. I could mask that, hide it, pretend I’m doing something else, try to make things more comfortable, try to sound like a NY Times reporter who just happens to be covering subjects in a different way. I could be sober and self-contained and palatable.

But then I wouldn’t be WRITING. Not in my own eyes.

See, this is what I mean by INDEPENDENT. People use that word, but is it what they really want? Or do they want a pale shadow of it?

A long time ago, I wrote something like this: People want to make magic, but otherwise they want to stay exactly the same in their lives, but that’s impossible.

So I take the word INDEPENDENT very seriously. I keep taking it further.

When I read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, I see INDEPENDENT and UNIQUE and INDIVIDUAL in extreme ways. As THEY WERE MEANT.

A culture is supposed to contain MANY, MANY individuals who are very different from each other. The culture is not supposed to embody freedom while at the same everybody embodies the same basic attitudes. That’s a fantasy. That isn’t freedom. That’s lip service. That’s fear of people who are genuinely different.

This culture is based on fear.

As I’ve been saying for many years, REALITY IS A CON.

It’s built to suck people in.

To give them all the same spiritual haircut.

Part of my decision to become a writer was based on my refusal to take the haircut. No matter what.

If you want to read what that’s like, what that comes out to, for one man who is a writer, you’re in the right place.

I’m going to talk about all this on the podcast. And more.

You’re cordially invited.

Podcast: A Vision of Decentralization of Power, a Vision of Imagination

Solving the New World Order and Technocracy and Personal Fatigue

by Jon Rappoport

October 4, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Subscribe to listen. With a yearly subscription, you get added benefits. To learn about that, go here. The yearly cost is 60 bucks, $1.15 a week, which is the tip you’d leave for a cup of coffee, two thin French fries, one piece of lettuce, and a small cucumber trying to be a pickle.

In this podcast, I’m going to talk about a subject near and dear to my heart. Decentralization of power across the board—which for me took off in 1988, when I wrote AIDS INC., Scandal of the Century.

Ever since then, I’ve been on that track. One, it brings power back to the individual, where it belongs; and two, it’s how you deal with tyranny at the top.

I’ve written and spoken about those subjects recently; in the podcast I’m fleshing out a vision of what decentralization can look like in full bloom, and how it benefits you to find your own vision.

With that last piece, I realize I’m on thin ice, because most people see absolutely no reason to create a vision about anything. When you suggest it they shrug and walk away.

Why? Because they see no value in imagination.

One of the priceless qualities in this or any other universe—and people yawn.

One of my self-appointed jobs over the past 30 years is promoting and explaining and elevating the power of imagination.

Imagination underlies ALL efforts at decentralization.

Imagination provides the SOLUTION to passivity and fatigue and the endless search for adrenaline and inspiration.

So I’ll talk about imagination in the podcast. It’s probably my favorite subject.

If somebody said, “You have to speak about one thing for 20 hours straight,” I’d pick imagination. No contest.

I’ll do my level best to inspire, not bore you in this podcast.

Reality—the total sum of what we’re told exists—is actually one tiny corner of everything that could be. And what could be is what gives life its meaning.

You can take THAT to the bank. But I advise you to keep it at home.

And remember, if a person says he has no imagination, all he has to do is imagine he does.

Which makes imagination the most interesting thing in the world.

Join me in this podcast. Take a new ride.

Podcast: The FBI Mar-a-Lago raid, and much more

Three mind-boggling events this past week

Number 3 is virtually unknown, and it’s a massive crusher—FOR us, not against us

by Jon Rappoport

August 16, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

The fascist takeover of this and other countries has been accelerating—but this past week, major new cards have been pulled from the bottom of the deck and played.

I’m going to describe them and lay out the stunning implications.

If you haven’t yet subscribed to my substack, now is the time. Throw in a few bucks and support my work. The yearly $60 subscription is the price of one dinner at a “highly recommended restaurant”—where the steak turns out tasting like cardboard. But here on my page, all the daily dinners are very real.

EVENT ONE: The FBI raid on Trump’s home in Florida. What’s behind it? I’ll discuss two of the major players lurking in the shadows, on the fringes, and what their presence means. No one else is covering this fully.

Are the powers-that-be just trying to derail any chance Trump has of running and winning in 2024? Or is something more going on?

EVENT TWO: With a new influx of $46 billion, the IRS is hiring 87,000 enforcement agents. The IRS’s posted job description stated: must be willing to use “deadly force.” After a backlash, the IRS scrubbed that section. What’s their real plan? And who are they trying to impress? I’ll lay out the reality.

EVENT THREE: And finally, I’ll expand my campaign on solutions, explaining how free and competitive states can overcome the concentration of federal power at the top of the food chain. As I write this…

Riley Moore, the state treasurer of West Virginia, is on FOX explaining how he is REMOVING enormous state monies from woke banks that refuse to do business with fossil fuel companies.

BANG. This is truly huge. Moore is turning the tables on Biden’s “green plan” to push the US into deep poverty.

This is exactly the kind of imaginative thinking that can spell victory for us.

There are MANY implications in Moore’s strategy. I’ll run them down for you. I can’t overstate their importance.

When you drive a dagger into the heart of banks that collude with government, you’re disrupting the very nerve center of tyranny.

Join me in this truly crucial podcast.

Shark week on TV came and went

I was too busy growing my scorpions, and omitted reporting on it

by Jon Rappoport

August 11, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

For NoMoreFakeNews Readers who haven’t yet visited my substack page, here’s a sample of what I’m doing over there. What follows below is the Lite version. At substack, every day, I’m DESTROYING REALITY—the reality nobody wants, except for the demented ones.

It’s my self-appointed task, and frankly, nobody does it better. I take the odd jobs. And I go all in.

—Several TV channels, back there in the mists of time—July—went wall to wall with shark shows and promos.

I have a theory. Scientists have found a way to pipe those shows to sharks around the world, and then the big fish swim close to shore and attack swimmers. Some of those sharks have Swiss bank accounts, and they pocket fees from media networks.

Also, just like the word “recession,” “great white shark” is being redefined. They can be much smaller than the beast in Jaws. So there are many more of them (for TV). I have to take a look at my tabletop aquarium. I may have a few buzzing around in there.

The shark shows feature lots of boat crews. These crazy guys drop fish in the water to attract sharks in order to film them. The guys go underwater in metal cages and wait for the monsters to bang against the bars. The guys fly in helicopters above shore lines and look down and speculate about why the sharks are coming ever closer to beaches:

Seals, otters, climate change, systemic racism, gender dysphoria.

For some reason—maybe it’s in the sharks’ TV contracts—the great whites open their mouths VERY wide, exposing all their teeth, when they’re going after six little trout the boat guys dropped overboard as bait. Seems very inefficient. Nature doesn’t usually operate that way.

I watched a show that ran footage of hundreds of fins poking up above the waterline close to a beach. I suspect those fins were plastic forgeries. Especially since the show’s host was doing his stand-up about 20 feet into the water.

I’m fascinated by the shows, because they raise a question. Is the viewing audience rooting for the guys or the sharks? In the larger scheme of things, is the audience rooting for the heroes or the monsters?

You could take this out to: Are most people willing to sacrifice humans for the sake of the environment, even if it means massive depopulation?

I know people who would choose the environment in a second.

Maybe this is behind all those shark shows: Nature is coming to get us, and we should let it.

It has a certain appeal, especially for people who’ve given up on the human race. They’re like the fish who swim along quietly with sharks, eating the big beasts’ leftovers.

Would you die to save one giant redwood?

Would you?

Lots of people say they would. I wonder what they’d do if they had to die in the water by great white attack.

I actually believe it’s possible for individual humans to rise to a level where they can make friends with the wildest of beasts. But short of that, a long slithering crocodile coming out of a river can take off a leg and a crotch before you can punch in 911 on your cell.

Generally speaking, I’m not a worshipful fan of Nature. For instance, take the rainforest, which I rightly call the jungle. I know that when you get down in there and you’re fighting your way through the undergrowth, you encounter an astonishing variety of life. But viewed from the air, as you’re flying over it, you see it marching all the way out to the horizon. There’s a paralyzing SAMENESS to it, as if one football-field-sized chunk has been exactly replicated, over and over and over. As if Nature said, “Ah, the hell with it, you get the idea. I’m just going to copy that original piece a million times and lay each piece next to another and multiply the whole ‘army’ on and on until you humans do something with it…”

Humans eventually obliged. Indeed, they did some crazy shit with it. But the basic notion of intervention made sense. Otherwise, we’d still be living in a whole world of nothing but jungle.

Many people SAY they want that. They’re all cuddly with the idea. But if you dropped them down into the middle of a dense patch, with the prospect of living out a whole life of 60 years or so there without let up, I think you’d have lots of conscientious objectors.

I’d put up one of the great Rembrandt self-portraits against a giant redwood any day of the week.

And one of those blunt tropical trees that spreads out horizontally in all directions with twisted roots above the ground? Versus, say, the Chrysler Building in New York? I’ll take the Chrysler.

I’ll go all in with the Brooklyn Bridge against any square mile of jungle anywhere in the world.

Now if it was a choice between a fantastic black leopard picking his way through foliage in Southeast Asia, and, say, the entire corner of 8th St. and Sixth Avenue in Manhattan, I’m taking the leopard.

So I’m a mixed bag. It’s case by case.

Great white shark, or the crazy TV guys in the boat filming the beast? Theoretically, it might be a draw. But I do have species-biased loyalties. I’ll pick the guys. As long as I don’t have to sit in a bar and listen to their stories.

A koala bear in a tree or Klaus Schwab? The cute koala, hands down.

Which would I prefer? Great white ate Bill Gates, or Bill Gates ate the great white? See, I think Bill DID eat the great white. That’s why he’s the way he is. So turnabout is fair play. Maybe next year, we’ll see that turnabout explode on screens during shark week. The ratings would go through the roof. Both sides would pause the war in the Ukraine and watch.

This is my problem with television. The networks know very well how to send their numbers soaring. But they back off.

My production team has put in a proposal to Sea World in San Diego. Capture a great white. A really huge one, not a renamed barracuda. A slathering monster. Dump it in a giant pool at Sea World. Keep it there. Have staff members feed it a few hundred pounds of meat from the ends of poles every day. (This is all broadcast to a global audience 24/7 without let up.) Train this shark to sit up and beg for food, bob for apples, turn somersaults. The works.

Finally, the beast is domesticated.

A trainer can ride it around the pool. He can pet its mouth and clean its teeth. He can administer castration drugs without objection. What a show.

And then one day…just like humans who have been subjected to endless mind control reeducation…the shark blows his top. He shakes off all his programming.

My production team has scripts prepared for that day. We have a voice-over narrator who will explain to the viewing audience—as the shark is wreaking havoc in the bloody pool and leaping out into the stands where the onlookers are sitting paralyzed, waiting to be munched—the narrator will describe the way mind control works and what happens when it reaches a limit.

The narrator will explain why a society based on individual freedom with responsibility, as opposed to State tyranny, avoids such a horrific outcome.

It’s an object lesson in, let’s call it social studies.

I think it’ll have a beneficial impact.

Don’t you?

For example, people might rethink the recent Los Angeles arrest of two traffickers who possessed 150,000 fentanyl pills, capable of killing several million people. After charging the duo, the DA released the traffickers on their own recognizance.

The public’s PASSIVE ACCEPTANCE of such an outrageous prosecutorial action surely speaks to the influence of mind control and entrainment and programming.

Or to put it another way—individuals fear what the State would do to them if they put aside their fear.

Shark week brings up many interesting thoughts. That’s why it’s so majestic.

Don’t forget to visit my substack page. Jaws are opening and closing there every day.

Podcast: Busting Fake Reality

The Job of the Century

The Knight’s Journey

by Jon Rappoport

August 9, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Step up to the plate, support my work, subscribe, and listen. The cost is about two hot dogs a month.

In this podcast, I’m going to throw in everything, including the kitchen sink—because this IS the job: busting fake reality.

Fake reality holds people and populations together. And not in a good way.

Engineered and self-imposed consensus makes possible all the high-level crimes that are designed to sink civilization into mass slavery.

In the podcast, I’m going to talk about ways we can BREAK the glue that binds people together in fake reality.

I’ll also explore the psychological and spiritual roots of people’s DESIRE to “surrender to the glue.”

As a journalist and writer, I have vast experience in this area. It’s been my target in everything I do.

Consensus is a strange creature. You can dismantle a chunk of it, and then it tends to grow back.

There’s a NEED people have to gloss over fractures in consensus reality and pretend they never happened.

If we were talking about a land war, we would say our troops took the city, then retreated, then took it again, then retreated—over and over again.

I used to know a woman during the health freedom movement of the 1990s who was a terrific researcher. She taught me things I never knew about Rockefeller medicine and germ theory and Big Pharma. She knew the scam from top to bottom. Plus she was an articulate outspoken advocate for individual freedom.

Two months after the declaration of the COVID pandemic, she was living in a small one-room apartment, wearing a mask indoors, very rarely venturing outdoors, and calling a friend every time she had the slightest symptom of a cold.

She’d busted fake reality big-time, but eventually she filled in all those cracks and painted over them and was totally buying into consensus.

Some version of this happens to many people every day.

The vanquished amoeba grows back.

There are many stories from the Middle Ages about the Knight who embarks on the mission of his life, to explore what lies beyond ordinary consensus reality. On his journey, he eventually comes to a threshold.

He knows if he crosses that line, his existence is going to become New. He doesn’t know how things will change, but they will. At that moment, all his conditioning tells him to turn around and go back.

But he doesn’t. He pushes on across the threshold. And then he finds out why he needed to push on. He finds the answer in himself.

Join me in this podcast.

Each one of us is a knight on that journey.

Podcast: ‘Taking On The Whole Phony Culture In Which We Live

…And Skewering It From Every Conceivable Angle

by Jon Rappoport

July 12, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

I’ve got a lot on my mind these days, and I want to share it with you.

Anybody can listen. No subscription necessary.

Yes, I’ll do some shameless plugging of my work. More than that, I’ll talk about the last 20 years of writing online, and my efforts to get my pieces out there—the successes and also the censorship.

The censorship has been constant, even on so-called alternative sites. I’ll talk about why. I think it’s important to understand why. Vital.

Writing 3 different blogs these days has given me new perspective. I can see more clearly what connects with readers and what doesn’t connect, and why. And this, too, is important to understand.

I’ve been relentless for the past 20 years online, and I’m even more relentless now. Which means I’m taking on the whole phony culture in which we live and skewering it from every conceivable angle.

So many people are falling victim to the culture and don’t even know it. Their internal habits of thought and perception are changing. And not for the better. I’m attacking that every day on Substack, in ways that no one else is. That’s a fact.

I’ll talk about it in the podcast.

At age 84, I’m not running across fields and valleys and hills at top speed anymore. I’m not playing in parks from dawn to dusk with my friends…but I’m writing more than I EVER have. That energy is spilling over. Why? I want to talk about that in the podcast.

I’ve found that when I build the inner fire higher, it grows still higher on its own. That is VERY interesting to me, and I’ll talk about it. I think you’ll find it interesting, too.

And yes, I’ll urge those of you who haven’t subscribed yet to do so. I’ll tell you why I think you should—for the price of one breakfast a month at a diner in 1990. There are exciting new bonuses coming for people who pay for a yearly subscription. I’ll describe a few of them.

I can’t and won’t stop now. There’s no reason to.

Writing every day for Substack has made me realize that CULTURE is the whole story. We live in it and swim in it or we try to wall it off. Culture shapes perception, and perception shapes thought, and this Culture happens to be a MONSTER, so I’m out to slay it.

That decision and commitment have opened up a whole new world of writing for me.

Speaking of which, I’m FOR writing and writers. I’m not ready to surrender the future to the destruction of language. I don’t think you are, either.

The general state of writing these days is wretched. Language is becoming a dead operation whose sole purpose is transmitting data. Whereas writing is supposed to set your hair on fire. It’s supposed to wake up the dead and the half-dead and those who are dozing.

I’ll talk about that.

I’m inviting EVERY ONE OF YOU to buckle up and join me in this podcast.

No holds barred.

Podcast: My Early Years in Journalism

Finding my voice and a future; the strange trip and the heroes

by Jon Rappoport

May 10, 2022

I’ve wanted to do this one for some time.

The beginning. 1982. Going from writing fiction and poetry to journalism in the blink of an eye, with the recommendation of my friend, LA Weekly writer Rockie Gardiner.

And after that, nothing was the same again.

So go to my substack page, throw in a few bucks, subscribe, and listen. Your support makes all the difference.

I explore a number of issues as I tell stories in this podcast. What is journalism supposed to be about? What were editors telling me? What was I advised about “the dead end” called investigative reporting?

The world of news is filled with strange characters, and now and then heroes show up. People who pass on a piece of crucial advice, put a piece of boggling evidence on the table, force you to evaluate what you’re really doing. Relentless people who don’t back down.

I talk about these people. I give them their due.

For example, Bill Perry, one of my earliest interviews in 1982. Bill fought his way to top of the food chain in the public relations field, and then one day walked out on the whole show. I can still remember, all these years later, how he told me that story. How he explained WHY he quit the game. You don’t forget moments like that, no matter how many years pass. You don’t forget something called morality.

There was a story I wrote in 1984, about nuclear security at the upcoming Olympic Games in Los Angeles. And after publishing it in a major magazine, I decided I had to tell somebody about what I’d found. The lack of security, and the potential threat. But who the hell do you talk to about that? Who can you trust?

As I was recording the podcast, I remembered the whole episode. So I describe it. Me, trying to deal with the federal government.

I discuss the field of so-called alternative journalism, as it was then—and still is, to a degree, now. I was mostly writing for those alternative outlets, but I discovered there were limits to what they wanted to cover. And there was the boredom, too.

The mind and soul numbing boredom of taking writing assignments that were so limited, I might as well have been working for the Washington Post. What are you supposed to do about THAT?

It was a key turning point for me. The fact is, every reporter is supposed to experience that exhaustion. Yes. Because it then forces him to make a decision about WHY he’s doing what he’s doing.

And then he takes one of two roads. He either gives in, or he goes further OUT. In my case, I lit the fuse on an explosion that is still reverberating for me.

In the podcast, I discuss my first flash of education about toxic corporate chemicals and life-destroying vaccines—a lesson that came from the unforgettable Ida Honorof. NO ONE who’s ever met Ida forgets her.

She was about 4 feet 10, about 50, skinny, with gray hair, when I ran into her in Los Angeles. A non-stop fireball. It took her about a minute to press into my hands a large sheaf of documents revealing corporate knowledge of pesticides resembling deadly Agent Orange. She commanded me to go home and read the documents. I obeyed. You could say my mind was then permanently blown.

I tell the story of another relentless character who came out of nowhere and practically forced me to go on the radio and reveal what I was finding out about AIDS. He told me he’d been Lenny Bruce’s agent. I think he pretty much existed on nuts and seeds. In his forties, he looked fit enough to get in the ring and fight for a world title.

These are people the normal world would retreat from. People who single-mindedly pursue a course of action whose limits are only defined by THEM.

They teach you something. Something realer than real.

In this podcast, I do my best to give you the shapes, the colors, the people, the decisions, the sensations of FINDING A WAY in a profession that, despite its claims about “the free press,” doesn’t want to make room for a writer who breaks the rules—

—Which ultimately led me to start a one-man news outlet 22 years ago.

But I did that only after having gone through some important years of grabbing a seat in the journalism bus and taking the ride.

Have a listen to the podcast. I believe you’ll find something valuable there.

Your mother-in-law isn’t going to refuse the vaccine

by Jon Rappoport

May 6, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Let’s get one thing straight. I’m not writing for your mother-in-law. I’m writing for you.

Your mother-in-law is still deciding whether to vote for Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan. She thinks J Edgar Hoover is Herbert Hoover.

A few readers have suggested I should make several adjustments, so my work is more “accessible” to the general public.

The general public is a collectivist cheeseball which has been sitting in a frying pan, with the flame set on low, for a very long time.

I published my first article in 1982. I’ve never made any adjustments.

Since then, I’ve only worked one change. I stopped taking assignments from editors. I don’t like them. I’ve always had the crazy notion that if editors want writers to carve away THIS and add THAT, they should write the pieces themselves. There are three reasons they don’t: they can’t write; they’re filled with self-importance; they’re lazy bureaucrats.

For me, writing has ebbs and flows. They depend on me finding a tag-end I like, which I then pull on. The article then takes shape. The tag-end might be a headline I read. It might be some absurd insane sentence uttered by a news anchor. It might be a scene in a dream. It might be an answer to the question, “What would be crazier than the last tag-end I found?”

If I can’t think of a tag, I sit here and stare at the wall and keep thinking. Or I watch a cooking show. Or I go over the five or six pretentious scuzzy reasons doctors deploy when they assure readers the virus exists. Or I fly my Gulfstream to London, where I dine with the Queen, and discuss how non-existent climate change will force us to eat insects for protein. Or I find a medical review admitting that, in 2001, only 18 flu deaths in the US could be traced to a flu virus. Actually, the number is zero. Or I reread the NY Times opinion piece which revealed the three major clinical trials of the COVID vaccines were designed to show the injection could prevent nothing more serious than cough, chills, and fever—after which the Times never mentioned the subject again. Or I consider how fear of the virus and love of the virus and the conviction the virus exists merge like a subconscious nursery rhyme. Or I imagine a time when men and women would have laughed off orders to lock down and would have gone about their lives without a second thought. And THAT’S a tag-end:

JULY 20, 2020. Look at what happened to a great city, to the people of that city, who over several decades were subjected to forms of cultural mind control…and who then became DIFFERENT.

…People turning into caricatures of themselves. In the process, they were ripened for takeover—which is what happened when the fake pandemic was declared.

New York. Once upon a time, I was married to it. No more. But it’s still my city.

I was born there. One of my early memories was looking across 2nd Avenue at a candy store. This was 1943. The candy store no longer sold Fleer’s bubble gum—the best bubble gum—because the latex was needed for the War effort. But the rumor was, they peddled it under the counter for an exorbitant two cents a chunk, with the cartoon inside the wrapper.

When I was 22, after growing up in the suburbs, I moved back to NY and for several years lived among some of the smartest asymmetric people in the world. You could have an argument with the dumbest person in the city and it would be a smart argument. Everyone had opinions, and they could back them up. There was no such thing as political correctness, believe me. If you had uttered the phrase, no one would have known what you were talking about.

New York was a great city. The thing was, no one was proud to BE a New Yorker. That false synthetic layer of goo came much later. In the old days, there was no pose, no artificial front. People had ideas, they had talent, they had survival instincts.

The best jazz musicians in the world lived and played in New York. When a giant like Bud Powell was playing at Birdland, you could get in for a dollar and sit in a hard wooden chair and listen to him until two in the morning. A buck for the greatest pianist in the world.

And now, the city is wrecked and boarded up, and the people are locked in.

Out on the street, the few aimless glazed pedestrians wear masks. They’re not the same people. They’re replacements. Pods.

OVERNIGHT, the people of New York could throw off the whole phony pandemic, not only for themselves, but the world. They could come out of their apartments and go back to work, defying the petty little lunatics like Cuomo and De Blasio. They could open up their restaurants and bars and stack in the customers. They could start building again. They could open wide the libraries and museums and fill the concert halls. They could open up the little groceries to all comers. They could laugh in the face of the public health authorities.

And it would be OVER.

In 1960, that’s exactly what would have happened. And not for some cause. Not for the chance to do a little virtue signaling. Not for the sake of “being a New Yorker.” For survival. For continuing to live their lives, people would have shaken off that slimy fraud Fauci like a five-minute bad dream. A joke played by an idiot.

They would have looked at the screaming lockdown headlines in the newspapers on the corner stand and shrugged and gone on their way. “You’re telling me I can’t walk down the street and listen to John Coltrane at the Jazz Gallery on a summer night? You’re out of your mind.” And the Termini brothers, who owned the club, would have packed the place even tighter than usual, just to thumb their noses at the mayor and his con artists. They would have put in a call to their contact at Democratic Machine headquarters. And it would have been OVER.

No one would have obeyed. Independent scholars would have walked into the 42nd St. library, as they did every day, and gone to the reference desk and asked for manuscripts on ancient Roman law and the Walt Whitman papers and the early maps of the city. The quiet upstairs macrobiotic restaurant on 2nd Avenue would have served supper as usual. The Cedar Bar on University Place would have turned in another raucous night. The Irish bars would have been jammed. A chamber orchestra in Washington Square Park would have performed Vivaldi, with the sounds of traffic from 6th Avenue in the background. Miles Davis would have played two sets at the Apollo. If Ravi Shankar was in town, he would have laid out a few stunning hours of ragas at the Asia Society and adjourned to an East Side apartment to continue on until dawn. No one and nothing would have obeyed a lockdown.

Pandemic? Virus? Get serious.

That New York…where is it? Who are all these flat minds swearing allegiance to medical fakery? Are they passively waiting for gold stars on the blackboard from the teacher?

In the old days, New York had DISDAIN. You didn’t get by with platitudes. You didn’t blithely mouth Left or Right and get away with it. The city was plugged into its own non-stop bullshit detector. What did you have to OFFER? Aimless blabbermouths were consigned to a special circle of Hell.

There was no political PROGRAM. Today’s “New Yorkers” would apparently be afraid to live in a landscape like that. They wouldn’t know which way to turn. They have a desperate need to become slaves to an IDEA. In this case, an idea about a virus.

In the 1960s, concealed by the Vietnam War, the city was undergoing a transformation into a cartoon of itself. That’s when the synthetic notion of “being a New Yorker”—based on nothing—started to take hold.

There were many reasons. The shrinking value of the dollar. Crippling street drugs. Mind numbing leveling television. The raising of children to be targets of advertising and fetish objects in a consumer society. The new New Yorkers were taught that liberal politics were a necessary adjunct of their status. Liberal equaled big government. Messaging from every possible quarter was aimed at turning the people of the city into servants of share and care as defined by government…

Going to doctors and acquiring serial diagnoses of physical and mental conditions was starting to take off as a social trend. The medicines and the vaccines were, of course, toxic. The city was taking in more immigrants than it could handle. There weren’t enough jobs. Desultory schools were steamrollered. Literacy was being destroyed. Even skyscraper architecture was moving away from unique structures like the Chrysler and the Empire State, into functional steel and glass boxes. Signs of the minds.

With people dumbed down enough, they would fall for any con. Any piece of shiny gloss. And it was eventually provided:

New York media covered the rise of New Money in the city as if it were a perfumed cultural signal of a dawning utopia. By the 1970s, envious intellectuals in the city were reading and admiring hyped chronicles of the emerging $$ stars of Manhattan: painters, fashioneers, stock speculators. And yes, Trump. The content of these celebs’ characters was entirely irrelevant. All that mattered was that their hustles were ringing up extraordinary sales in inflated dollars.

And finally, to view how thin and vulnerable new New York had become, and how brainless—when, in 2020, the fake pandemic hit, and lockdowns were announced, the population promptly folded, stayed indoors, went into mask and social distance mode without a whisper of protest.

In short order, the city was made over into abject wreckage, shuttered, obedient, loyal to a psychotic delusion.

In a silly song he recorded long after its internal demise, Frank Sinatra said New York was the city that never sleeps.

Now that’s all it does.

CODA: If the September 11th attacks had happened in 1960, there would have been no need for Billy Joel or the Yankees to rally “all New Yorkers.” The people of the city would have looked at the firemen and cops as human heroes risking everything for other humans. Period. That would have been enough. More than enough. That would have gone deep into souls and minds. Where it counts.

—Entraining minds. The job of the Super-State. Reworking independence into devotion to a synthetic pose of altruism.

But in this phony pandemic, it’s good to be BAD…

I’m not talking about looting and burning. I’m talking about a different type of BAD. Think it through. Figure it out. It’s always there, like a tag-end. You just have to pull on it…
