  1. This is a really good article that explains how gilts and government borrowing works (and its effect on pension funds). https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/e15d24f0-4a63-11ed-8176-c5c5e560820a?shareToken=f0e2e2e2f956f949f0f48ef8b5fea089
  2. I think it was probably me using a new phone or something x or a glitch. I wasn't worried. Nice to see you back Lake. I've been busy with home stuff , but thought I'd have a nose around here again, I've probably got a masochistic streak ;-)
  3. I got that in Spain recently too.
  4. From The Defender BIG FOOD › VIEWS Does Bill Gates Have a ‘Great Reset’ Plan to Privatize Global Food System? Viewed from the perspective of The Great Reset, it appears Bill Gates may be engaged in the same kind of wealth-shift scheme as BlackRock and other investment groups that are buying up single-family homes and turning them into rentals. In early June, the government of The Netherlands announced it would cut the size of livestock herds in the country by 30% to meet European Union nitrogen and ammonia pollution rules. According to Thierry Baudet, Dutch Parliament member, the government is following the script of The Great Reset, which requires weakening the country, making it more dependent on food imports, and diluting nationalism by taking in more immigrants. To make room for immigrant housing, they need to take land from the farmers. The newly assigned Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy, Christianne van der Wal-Zeggelink, is married to Piet van der Wal, who together with his brother are heavily invested in the major online grocery retailer Picnic. In September 2021, Bill Gates invested an estimated half-billion dollars into Picnic, thereby becoming one of its lead investors. Gates’ involvement has raised questions about government corruption. At the same time, the Dutch government is preparing to radically restrict livestock farming and meat production, Gates is gobbling up farmland back home. Despite land prices being at a record high, Gates purchased a 2,100-acre potato farm in North Dakota in June, bringing the total land share held by the Gates’ Red River Trust above 270,000 acres. Gates claims he intends to lease the farmland to farmers. Viewed from the perspective of The Great Reset, it would then appear Gates may be engaged in the same kind of wealth-shift scheme as BlackRock and other investment groups that are buying up single-family homes and turning them into rentals. The end goal is to eliminate all private ownership and turn the population into serfs. In early June, the government of The Netherlands announced it would cut the size of livestock herds in the country by 30% to meet European Union nitrogen and ammonia pollution rules. As a result of this “green” policy, many farmers will be driven out of business and they have gathered in protest across the country. This is important because many may not realize that even though The Netherlands is a small country, it’s the second-largest exporter of agriculture in the world, after the United States. As with current energy shortages, the forced reductions in farming and food production are said to be an “unavoidable” part of the Green Agenda to improve air, soil and water quality. In a public statement about the new emissions targets, the Dutch government even admitted that “the honest message… is that not all farmers can continue their business.” Those who do continue will have to come up with creative solutions to meet the new emissions restrictions. A clear case of corruption? The restrictions on nitrogen for livestock farmers have befuddled many. Why would government restrict farming at a time when food shortages and famine loom on the horizon worldwide (see video below)? Some claim to have discovered conflicts of interest within the Dutch government that can help explain this irrational move. The newly assigned Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy (who created the nitrogen regulations and is responsible for overseeing the cuts to farming), Christianne van der Wal-Zeggelink, is married to Piet van der Wal, who together with his brother, Bouke van der Wal, own a massive supermarket chain called Boni. As noted by The Conservative Treehouse: “When Dutch farmers sell product to Boni they are directly funding the wealth of the government minister who seeks to destroy their livelihoods.” The van der Wal family is also heavily invested in a major online grocery retailer called Picnic. Picnic buys food at wholesale prices directly from Boni, which minimizes its operational costs. Picnic basically functions as a home delivery service for Boni. In September 2021, Bill Gates entered the Dutch enterprise. He invested an estimated half-billion dollars into Picnic, thereby becoming one of its lead investors. Not surprisingly, Picnic focuses on selling the fake “food” that Gates is invested in and promotes, imitation beef in particular. Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Hollywood actors, venture capitalists — they’re all pushing lab-grown meat as solution to world hunger + sustainability, but scientists last week told a panel of experts they have serious concerns about the product’s safety. Michiel Muller, the CEO of Picnic, a Dutch climate change activist, has also publicly vowed to “change the entire food system” to be in line with sustainable goals, which falls right in line with Gates’ agenda. The strong recommendation to replace beef with fake meat was made in Gates’ book “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need,” released in February 2021. In an interview with MIT Technology Review, he also suggested that people could learn to like fake meat and, if resistance continues, regulations may be needed to force the switch. According to The Countersignal: “Many participating in the ongoing farmers’ protests in Holland have openly stated they believe Gates may be partly responsible for pushing additional climate laws.” Curiously, on July 10 a large Picnic delivery facility in Almelo, Holland, burned to the ground under mysterious circumstances. Why get rid of farmers amid rising food insecurity? The attempt to rid The Netherlands of livestock farmers really only makes sense if seen from the globalists’ point of view, with an eye on The Great Reset, the Green New Deal, Agenda 2030 and related Sustainable Development Goals. Indeed, according to Dutch Parliament member Thierry Baudet (video below), that’s really what the nitrogen restrictions are all about. The Dutch government is following the script of The Great Reset, he says, which requires weakening the country, making it less independent and more dependent on food imports. The Great Reset script also calls for diluting nationalism and weakening borders by taking in more immigrants, and to make room for immigrant housing, they need to take land from the farmers. So, the new nitrogen rules are basically a precursor to a land grab. They intend to put farmers out of business so they can take their land and stack it full of low-income, government-assistance apartment buildings. Aside from that, farmers also pose a threat to the technocratic elitists because they don’t need to rely on the government for basics such as food and shelter, and they can allow those who buy their food to maintain their independence as well. The globalists’ plan is to eliminate access to as much real food as possible and replace natural foods with patented foodstuffs so that the population becomes entirely dependent on them for survival. At that point, they are easily controlled. Eliminating independent food producers — farmers — is therefore a key to the globalist cabal’s eventual success. Gates gobbles up farmland while pushing fake foods At the same time the Dutch government is preparing to radically restrict livestock farming and meat production — likely with Gates’ blessing, if not due to his influence — Gates is gobbling up farmland back home (video below). Despite land prices being at a record-high, Gates purchased a 2,100-acre potato farm in North Dakota in June, bringing the total land share held by the Gates’ Red River Trust above 270,000 acres — up from about 242,000 acres in mid-September 2021. Credit: AgWeb The above map, from AgWeb, shows the distribution of his land holdings prior to his North Dakota acquisition. As you can see, the vast majority is farmland. Gates plan: Turn farmers into modern serfs However, as reported by AgWeb at the end of June, Gates didn’t get a warm welcome: “North Dakota hosts ‘corporate farming laws’ that barres [sic] corporations and limited liability companies from owning and leasing farms and ranches. With the Gates’s new $13.5 million farmland purchase, North Dakotans — including the attorney general — are concerned the sale violates the state’s law. The North Dakota attorney general’s office sent a letter to the Red River Trust on Tuesday, alerting the trustee of the North Dakota land law. “‘Our office needs to confirm how your company uses this land and whether this use meets any of the statutory exceptions, such as the business purpose exception,’ wrote Drew Wrigley, North Dakota attorney general.” MoneyWise followed up on the story, reporting that by July 5, Gates had secured legal approval for his farm purchase — a decision that has raised the ire of many North Dakotans who don’t believe Gates has good intentions. According to MoneyWise: “The anti-corporate farming law does allow individual trusts to own farmland if it is leased to farmers — and that’s what Gates’ firm plans to do.” Viewed from the perspective of The Great Reset, it appears Gates may be engaged in the same kind of subversive wealth-shift scheme as BlackRock and other investment groups that are buying up single-family homes. They buy them, often sight-unseen and at above-market prices, with the intent of turning them into rentals. This too is part and parcel of The Great Reset and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The intent is to eliminate all private ownership and turn the population into modern serfs. “Serf” is a term that describes people who are required to work for the “lord” who owns the land they live on, or who are otherwise underpaid, overworked or exploited in some way. That’ll be all of us, one day, if the world doesn’t wake up and refuse to go along with the globalist cabal’s Great Reset plans. The plight of the Dutch farmers is just the beginning.

  5. It's interesting though as I heard some people even in the 'truth movement' almost defending these non mRNA options as not gene therapy, as an option if forced to be vaccinated instead of the mRNA pfizer types. Seems they were wrong ( as we thought, said, were laughed at, etc)
  6. Anyone picked up on this yet? Adenovirus delivered gene therapy ( same as the ChadOx Oxford vaccine delivery system) and the other non mRnA vaccines. Openly described as GENE THERAPY delivering DNA to permanently alter genes. From the New Scientist but widely reported in the MSM. "Gene therapy trial shows early success in people with haemophilia B In a small study of 10 people with haemophilia B, nine were still forgoing the condition's standard treatment about two years after receiving a single gene therapy injection HEALTH 21 July 2022 By Jason Arunn Murugesu A form of gene therapy has shown initial success in treating a rare form of haemophilia, but whether the treatment will be effective in the long term is unknown. Haemophilia B is a rare genetic condition that prevents blood from clotting effectively, sometimes causing life-threatening bleeds. It occurs due to a genetic mutation in the X chromosome that leaves people unable to produce sufficient levels of the protein factor IX, which is crucial for blood clotting. It is currently treated by regular injections, usually weekly, of laboratory-produced factor IX. Despite this treatment, some people continue to have debilitating joint damage. To test the potential of gene therapy to correct this genetic fault, researchers at University College London, the Royal Free Hospital in London and the biotechnology company Freeline Therapeutics infused 10 adult men experiencing haemophilia B with a single dose of a treatment called FLT180a, administered via an adenovirus-associated virus. Any form of haemophilia is far more common in males than females as the latter carry two X chromosomes and therefore only experience the condition if both their chromosomes are affected or if one chromosome is missing or non-functioning. Twenty-six weeks after the gene therapy was administered, all the participants had increased factor IX levels, which varied according to the gene therapy dose the individual received. About two years later, this response was sustained in nine of the 10 participants. At the start of the study, all the men had factor IX levels of 2 per cent or less of what is considered normal. At their last reported check-up, this ranged from 23 per cent to 260 per cent in the nine participants, depending on their gene therapy dose. Moreover, the nine participants no longer needed to undergo their previous treatment regimen of factor IX injections. “Removing the need for haemophilia patients to regularly inject themselves with the missing protein is an important step in improving their quality of life,” Pratima Chowdary at University College London said in a statement. This form of gene therapy uses a packaging from the proteins found in the outer coat of the adenovirus-associated virus to deliver a functional copy of a gene directly to an individual’s tissues, compensating for the gene that isn’t working properly, according to the researchers. Newly synthesised proteins are then released into the blood. The participants will be followed for 15 years in total. “The long-term follow-up study will monitor the patients for durability of expression and surveillance for late effects,” said Chowdary. Based on the evidence so far into this type of gene therapy, John McVey at the University of Surrey in the UK thinks the participants’ factor IX levels will drop in the long term. In addition, people cannot receive this specific gene therapy with the same type of viral vector more than once. “The body might recognise it [the viral vector] as foreign and increase antibody levels, which immediately bind to the virus and neutralise it,” says McVey. The therapy also requires participants to regularly take immunosuppressants to ensure their body doesn’t reject FLT180a. Long-term use of immunosuppressants has been linked with an increased infection risk. McVey says it is unclear how long the participants will need to be on immunosuppressants. Of the reported adverse events in the study, about 10 per cent were related to the gene therapy and 24 per cent to immunosuppression. A serious blood clot occurred in one of the participants who received a high dose. Overall, McVey says the findings are encouraging: “There’s a lot of work to be done but it’s very promising.” “There’s a big difference between one injection that cures you for a particular length of time compared to replacement therapy – which is what we use now – that requires injections at least once a week for the whole of their lives,” he says.

  7. They can't not be. Look what they did to Corbyn when he tried to stand up for Palestine.
  8. It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see..." "You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?" "No," said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, "nothing so simple. Nothing anything like so straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people." "Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy." "I did," said Ford. "It is." "So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't people get rid of the lizards?" "It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want." "You mean they actually vote for the lizards?" "Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course." "But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?" "Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?" "What?" "I said," said Ford, with an increasing air of urgency creeping into his voice, "have you got any gin?" "I'll look. Tell me about the lizards." Ford shrugged again. "Some people say that the lizards are the best thing that ever happened to them," he said. "They're completely wrong of course, completely and utterly wrong, but someone's got to say it." "But that's terrible," said Arthur. "Listen, bud," said Ford, "if I had one Altairian dollar for every time I heard one bit of the Universe look at another bit of the Universe and say 'That's terrible' I wouldn't be sitting here like a lemon looking for a gin.

  9. Or sexual demands. It's historically happened in every civilisation.
  10. No I'm not in fact your post prompted me to start a thread drilling down the WEF, which I've been meaning to do for a while so thank you. I'm genuinely intrigued with the RBE concept but trying to see how it differs and how it may or may not work.
  11. Klaus Schwab openly talks about humans having brain implants for thoughts to be read and Elon Musk former Young Global Leader for the WEF owns neuralink. There's no coincidence there. Yuval harari the right hand man for Klaus Schwab talking about humans being hackable. Very near future totalitarian regimes lots of 'useless' people.
  12. I'll kick it off with this vision of " you will own nothing and be happy" that after much internet backlash they have removed from their website. Copied from Forbes Still plenty of links showing this was endorsed by the WEF. LEADERSHIP STRATEGY Welcome To 2030: I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy And Life Has Never Been Better World Economic Forum Contributor By Ida Auken Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city – or should I say, “our city.” I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes. It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service. We have access to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we need in our daily lives. One by one all these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us to own much. First communication became digitized and free to everyone. Then, when clean energy became free, things started to move quickly. Transportation dropped dramatically in price. It made no sense for us to own cars anymore, because we could call a driverless vehicle or a flying car for longer journeys within minutes. We started transporting ourselves in a much more organized and coordinated way when public transport became easier, quicker and more convenient than the car. Now I can hardly believe that we accepted congestion and traffic jams, not to mention the air pollution from combustion engines. What were we thinking? Sometimes I use my bike when I go to see some of my friends. I enjoy the exercise and the ride. It kind of gets the soul to come along on the journey. Funny how some things seem never seem to lose their excitement: walking, biking, cooking, drawing and growing plants. It makes perfect sense and reminds us of how our culture emerged out of a close relationship with nature. In our city we don’t pay any rent, because someone else is using our free space whenever we do not need it. My living room is used for business meetings when I am not there. Once in a while, I will choose to cook for myself. It is easy – the necessary kitchen equipment is delivered at my door within minutes. Since transport became free, we stopped having all those things stuffed into our home. Why keep a pasta-maker and a crepe cooker crammed into our cupboards? We can just order them when we need them. This also made the breakthrough of the circular economy easier. When products are turned into services, no one has an interest in things with a short life span. Everything is designed for durability, repairability and recyclability. The materials are flowing more quickly in our economy and can be transformed to new products pretty easily. Environmental problems seem far away, since we only use clean energy and clean production methods. The air is clean, the water is clean and nobody would dare to touch the protected areas of nature because they constitute such value to our well-being. In the cities we have plenty of green space and plants and trees all over. I still do not understand why in the past we filled all free spots in the city with concrete. Shopping? I can’t really remember what that is. For most of us, it has been turned into choosing things to use. Sometimes I find this fun, and sometimes I just want the algorithm to do it for me. It knows my taste better than I do by now. When AI and robots took over so much of our work, we suddenly had time to eat well, sleep well and spend time with other people. The concept of rush hour makes no sense anymore, since the work that we do can be done at any time. I don’t really know if I would call it work anymore. It is more like thinking-time, creation-time and development-time. For a while, everything was turned into entertainment and people did not want to bother themselves with difficult issues. It was only at the last minute that we found out how to use all these new technologies for better purposes than just killing time. My biggest concern is all the people who do not live in our city. Those we lost on the way. Those who decided that it became too much, all this technology. Those who felt obsolete and useless when robots and AI took over big parts of our jobs. Those who got upset with the political system and turned against it. They live different kind of lives outside of the city. Some have formed little self-supplying communities. Others just stayed in the empty and abandoned houses in small 19th century villages. Once in a while I get annoyed about the fact that I have no real privacy. Nowhere I can go and not be registered. I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded. I just hope that nobody will use it against me. All in all, it is a good life. Much better than the path we were on, where it became so clear that we could not continue with the same model of growth. We had all these terrible things happening: lifestyle diseases, climate change, the refugee crisis, environmental degradation, completely congested cities, water pollution, air pollution, social unrest and unemployment. We lost way too many people before we realized that we could do things differently. This blog was written ahead of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils.

  13. Sort of fits under the great reset thread but this is specifically for all things Klaus Schwab, his advisors and the World Economic Forum's multi layered thoughts for humanities future.
  14. It sounds remarkably similar. The WEF idea was renting goods. We would all get a package based on a lot of criteria including social credit that gave us 'points' to 'spend'. In the RBE system I don't understand how goods are allocated. As people are selfish and do hoard. And without incentive msny don't work. Not everyone I do agree. Our allotment has a lot of sharing and support to whoever needs it.
  15. This does sound great and what I would certainly want. But time after time these sort of groups evolve into cults. Has that been considered and how is it avoided? So, we will own nothing? And be happy?
  16. I have felt for a very long time now that it is not power that is wrong with the world but abuse of power. Power in altruistic loving and caring hands can be a good thing. As you point out many humans look to experts and advisors, leaders for their steer. Abdicating responsibilty to another. Really it is an extension of the parent / child relationship many still crave into adulthood.My fear is that over and over humans have shown an inability to evade corruption by power such that inevitably an AI type power / control system will be introduced. Removing responsibility from the human race completely. They'll probably even call it something crass like 'mother'.
  17. Exactly this. There's a collective munchausen's attention seeking to all of it. From the posting of the 2 stripes test, daily updates ln what sounds like a cold to 'beating covid' like 'kicking cancer's arse'. They're getting a kick out of group worry. If I see one more " get well soon hun" I'll scream. Sorry. Rant over. Where were we? Oh yeah...a new wave of the common cold is coming let's dig a bunker.
  18. More longer term but regular deep meditation visualising your grown up self walking back to your childhood home. Entering (under your own steam you have permission now, you're an adult). Go to yourself as a child. Hold them. Tell them you've got them, it changes, it won't always be like this. You're looking after them. Also when you as an adult needs help or steering ask your future self. If time really isn't linear then these things help. Practising this belief that I have me, I will help me, has really helped over the years.
  19. Also being rumoured on twitter that Durham police are going to charge Keir Starmer, which, if he keeps his promise means he stands down too. Interesting times. What's for sure is whoever is in charge will be corruptible , manipulated and powerless following the already in place plans.

    Yes all our vegetables are now our own home grown. Do you compost ? It's almost miraculous what even beginners like us get from garden waste. The allotment is great, one chap there has had an allotment since he was 15 he is now 87, on two walking sticks and still has an incredible allotment 3 times the size of ours. He's forgotten more than most ever knew. One unbreakable rule is cattle manure in September for winter mulch. The storing of seeds is something I would like to learn more about.
