Any Way You Pronounce It

This week’s we have a Bank Holiday edition of London Calling which begins with James and Toby showing an amazing lack of understanding of the US holiday calendar but more than make up for it with a review of the weekend’s Delingpod Live event at London’s Emmanuel Centre.

In the news there’s the coming global famine and whether it’s cock-up or conspiracy, the fact that the Queen is going to be played by a woman of colour in the Platinum Jubilee pageant, whether either of them have ever stumbled across pornography while searching for tractors.

We also cover Biden’s new misinformation tsar, the rehabilitation of Tony Blair, where we were on election night 25 years ago when he won his landslide victory.

In Culture Corner, the anti-capitalist subtext of The Dropout, We Crashed and Super Pumped, and one of the key differences between Breaking Bad and Ozarks (which is that in Breaking Bad Walter White is the super villain, whereas in Ozark its Wendy Bryde.)

Opening sound this week is Tony Blair in a party political for Kier Starmer.

    Apparently, James has rationalized the failure of his prediction that uncounted millions would die from the Covid vaccines.

    Now he feels that the vast Malthusian conspiracy intended to kill millions but failed.

    His new conspiracy theory is that Bill Gates and his evil minions are going to destroy food production so we all starve to death.

    No doubt when this prediction fails, too, James will say that starving millions was the intent, but the conspiracy screwed up — again!

    On the MP who resigned over watching porn in the House of Commons:

    As an American, I’ve taken the time to watch normal Commons business on Parliament TV’s streaming service, just as I’ve watched the American C-SPAN of our Congressional sessions.  I’ve watched other countries legislature streaming services and there’s nothing like the House of Commons, and I’ve spent quite a few hours watching them.

    Anyway, like congressional sessions in the U.S., most routine sessions are sparsely attended by members unless there’s a vote scheduled, or an important debate.  And of course Prime Minister’s Questions are heavily attended.

    I have not read the details of the incident, but during these routine sessions, I do see MP’s looking at their phones.  I can imagine that before the advent of cameras and smartphones, it was routine for members to sit in the Commons and to read a newspaper or magazine.

    When doing so, would it have been routine to bring in a Playboy or the British equivalent to look at porn?  Probably not.

    I have read that there are complaints of airline passengers watching porn on their tablets, exposing it to their fellow passengers.  When I was at an age where I still looked at porn, it was before the advent of the Internet, and my viewing was limited to the glossy magazines.  But, beyond my teenage years, I was ashamed enough of it where I didn’t do it around others, and even during my teenage years I didn’t do it around girls or women.

    I don’t understand why someone would be that inconsiderate as to watch porn in a public space, whether in the House of Commons, a coffee shop, or airline.  I’m not sorry about the MP having to resign.  That he couldn’t control himself enough to wait until he left the chamber should be reason enough to end his Commons career.

    Give the bio weapons some time to work. Those suffering myocarditis today have a 15 to 20% shot at dying within five to 10 years. Same with those who now have blood clotting disorders.

    Since  the vaxxes are already succeeding in bringing about a a 2500% increase in myocarditis, and an unprecedented increase in blood clotting disorders, paralysis, MS, migraine headaches among those who had no headaches prior, neuropathies, neurological ailments, inflated rate of birth birth defects and late term still born babies among women vaxxed in their first trimester, and more, as detailed in the US military’s own epidemiological data base, as well as the testimony of several major life insurance company executives that the fatality rate among those who were aged 18 to 64,  increased at a rate of 40% for the year 2021 when compared to the year 2019, a thinking person would have some concerns. The elephant in the room is that this has been the most catastrophic situation the public has faced  since above ground nuke tests were going on  in the USA in the 1950’s.

    The fact that Americans are forced to be continuously tested and mandated at work places to be vaxxed while immigrants are brought here, offered no tests or vaxxes, and put on buses to become part of who knows where in the USA  tells me everything I need to know about this program.

    The UN has made no secret that one of its chief goal to be achieved by 2030 or sooner is to transition Western societies from being native citizens to being replaced by developing world nations’ refugees, whose status as escapees from war torn regions, economically backward regions, and regions “stressed by Climate Change Crises” should worry every American. The UN is strongly affiliated with the UN, and Gates is the second largest donor to The WHO.

    Our youth is told their number one goal should be to not reproduce. (Jordan Peterson has been on a tear over how this is now a standard lecture coming from college faculty.) But if the suspected anti-fertility mechanisms of the vaccine turn out to be realities, the COV vaccine will negate the need for  the latest generation, and the subsequent generations,  from having to  make any decisions at all  about reproduction, as this program did this for them.

    Another entertaining podcast.

    But I would love to hear james give a much more fulsome description of how the shadowy world behind the world really works, and how he accesses information about it.

    Every time Toby probes on the issue he ducks and weaves.  

    Come on James, step up and enlighten us normies!

    The obvious fallacy here is that a vast number of people would have an interest in publicizing this, if it were true; for example, everyone who opposes vaccine mandates.  

    Not to mention lawyers who could look forward to payouts in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

    About a million “excess deaths” in 2020 and 2021, it sez, out of 330 million or so.

    I’m not going to waste a great deal of time on this, but here is a bit on myocarditis and Covid-19 from the American College of Cardiology:

    Historically, myocarditis has been reported as a rare adverse event after vaccinations, especially smallpox, influenza, and hepatitis B vaccinations and in the pre–coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) era. Among 620,195 reports filed at the United States Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) between 1990 and 2018, 0.1% were attributable to myopericarditis.

    By July 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a likely association between the SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines and cases of myocarditis and pericarditis; the reported CDC myocarditis/pericarditis rate was low, approximately 12.6 cases per million second-dose mRNA vaccine among individuals aged 12–39 years. …

    By contrast, the incidence of COVID-19 infection-associated cardiac injury or myocarditis is estimated to be 100 times higher (1,000–1,400 per 100,000 people with COVID-19) than that of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA-vaccine-related myocarditis. Moreover, in contrast to the overall mild presentation and good outcome of vaccine-associated myocarditis, COVID-19 is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular complications.
