The Great Narrative to boost The Great Reset…

Yes, Klaus Schwab is at it again. Now wants “The Great Narrative”. Mahyar Tousi has a nice bit of coverage of it:

I especially enjoyed the lack of self awareness of the woman who complains that the Elite of the world are now aligned, but that the Peasants (“the majority of the people”) in EVERY country polled “trusted their elite less”. Well DUH! Y’all are a bunch of Greedy Globalist Evil Bastards. You expected us to swallow your swill and praise you for ripping us off?

Then the outing of “The European Chips Act” demands a big “Dig Here!”. Centralize chip design under GEB control? Like hell. OTOH, it is self described as something that sounds good. It has a goal of doubling European chip production and dragging some back to the EU (from Asia I suppose). In light of the global dependence on Taiwan for just about all significant chips,(soon to be integrated into the One Communist China…/snark;) it is very important to start breaking that dependency.

But frankly, ANYTHING, coming out of the WEF or EU “Leadership” must be viewed very skeptically.

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2022/01/theres-no-digital-without-chips-new-european-chips-act-announced/

[…]
The act, which will be proposed in early February, aims to increase microchip production across the continent in response to rising demand and to reduce dependency on suppliers from outside Europe.

“The European need for chips will double in the next decade,” von der Leyen explained. “This is why we need to radically raise Europe’s game on the development, production and use of this key technology.”
[…]

Progress in 5 key areas
Europe’s global semiconductor market share is only 10% today, President von der Leyen explained. Most supplies come from a handful of producers outside the continent, she said.

“By 2030, 20% of the world’s microchips production should be in Europe,” von der Leyen said. “Keep in mind that the world’s production itself will double. This means quadrupling today’s European production.”

And this new act will enable progress in 5 key areas, she explained:

1. Strengthened research and innovation capacity in Europe

2. Ensure European leadership in design and manufacturing

3. Adaption of state aid rules to allow public support – for the first time – for European, first-of-a-kind production facilities.

4. Improved ability to anticipate and respond to shortages and supply issues in the area

5. Support for smaller, innovative companies.

Looks to me like a lot of “subsidy” and “protectionism” will be involved. How about you just cut taxes on industry and let market forces move production to your lands?

Wonder if their chips will be used in the New Improved EU “Digital ID” – so not “your papers please!” but “your CHIP please!”

Looks like it got kicked off last November (details under “program” at the above link):

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
10—13 November 2021
The Great Narrative
[…]
06:00
Narrating the Future
Public Speakers: Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Klaus Schwab

Watch session
10:00
The Next 50 Years: Dialogue with UAE Officials
Public Speakers: Mina Al-Oraibi, Sarah Al Amiri, Shamma bint Suhail Faris Al Mazrui, Ohood Bint Khalfan Al Roumi, Omar bin Sultan Al Olama

Gee, a German Socialist Globalist planning our future with a load of Arabs… didn’t we see that in the 1930s to 1940s…

Those two session descriptions link to the video from the two sessions. I’m putting links here as their links are not so obviously links. I’ve not watched the second one through at the time of this posting, but will make a suitable beverage and steel myself for it a bit later…

34 minutes of plotting how to take over the world:

https://www.weforum.org/events/the-great-narrative-2021/sessions/a-call-for-the-great-narrative

Some notes as I watch it:

The Great Narrative is needed for “Climate Change” too, per the speaker “His Excellency” Al Gergawi. All about the need for central planning, like that’s worked so well…

Schwab then says 3 things are slowing them down:

1) People have become more self centered. (I think that means we’re not interested in following HIS plans for us, we want to follow our own…)

2) I think he says “hyper focus with the pandemic” but maybe it was “tighter focus”… His accent is a bit bizarre. I take this to mean “We tried the Plandemic, but it didn’t work as expected, so time to move on to the next plot.”

3) The world has become so complex that simple solutions to complex problems do not suffice anymore. I take that to mean “Our prior simple approach flopped so we need to hide it in more complexity so the rubes can’t see what we’re up to.” or perhaps “It’s hard to design the future as reality is way more complex than a single person can understand; but we will try anyway.”

Shades of Churchill… Al Gergawi does a “first second of first minute of…” bit about the 2nd wave of human history. The tech wave. So he thinks that in the next 15 years everything will change. It’s all going onto “one platform”, the computer. Um, no. They will assist, but my barber is still going to cut my hair, and I’m still going to talk to my friends in person and on secure telephone lines. I’m also keeping my non-computerized cars, BTW. But he thinks “Government is very important” and that “countries who have strong governments can evolve totally different”. So OK, all in on totalitarianism then…

The self deception is strong in these folks. Al Gergawi thinks the growth of Dubai is a great example for the world, but does not mention that an ocean of oil revenue can raise any country up. He also says “we are winning this war” on the pandemic. Riiiight…. Like Omicron is all gone now? Like the vexxine is not killing and maiming a lot of folks? What will end the pandemic is just letting folks get natural immunity and letting the virus take the normal path of evolution into just another head cold. All people have succeeded at is stretching it out for 2 years and killing a load of folks who didn’t need to die by withholding therapeutics that work (like zinc ionophores and ivermectin).

Klaus Schwab in profile reminds me of Elmer Fudd… so he’s prattling on about needs for “sustainable” and “inclusive” and the usual clap trap of the PC Left.

Al Gergawi then speculates on what Dubai will be like in 50 years (prompted by Schwab). Somehow doesn’t mention the possibility / probability that sometime in the next 50 years there might be another regional or global war. That his country can cease to exist overnight. All roses and unicorns.

The hubris is strong in these folks. Designing the world and all…

46 minutes closing session:

https://www.weforum.org/events/the-great-narrative-2021/sessions/closing-plenary-03768dee1f

Five panelists this time. Klaus leads in with a general disclaimer that amounts to “we’re not saying this is what will be ’cause predicting the future is hard”… but it will be “a NEW world”.

First panelist, Heijman, says this “NEW World” will be tech driven. Three techs in particular to be drivers.

1) “Digitalization”. She works in “quantum computing” that so far is useless, but is sure it will change the world. Thinks it is going to return us to exponential growth of compute power. But right now it is several orders of magnitude behind silicon, so don’t hold your breath waiting for it… Believes that “shorter term, artificial intelligence, that is already here, will grow enormously”. Uh Huh. Let me know when self driving Teslas stop running into things. Then we are all going to be happy living in the Metaverse / augmented reality. (So not just gamers, eh?) Finally, a “industrial digital revolution” of some ill defined sort. Frankly, IMHO, all the easy lifting in digitalization has already been done. From here on out it’s a lot harder and slower.

2) “The Energy Transition”. Thinks Fusion Power is going to do it. Hey, in the last 50 years while I’ve been watching them, Fusion has gone from “50 years away” to now only “30 years away”… “Mid Century” per her. Then “green hydrogen” (and here I thought it was a colorless gas that is a PITA to keep inside pipes ). “A.I. and digitalization will enable this transition” because, you know, cars run on digits… and Smart Grids will be needed to improve “our nets” so that will fix solar and wind being unreliable and sporadic.

3) Engineered Biology. This one has a potential, but also has some mighty high risks. Just look at the mRNA damage from the vexxine.

Moyo, the second panelist, is a NYTimes best seller list author, so you know where she is coming from. Looking at things from an Economic Point of view. Oh Gawd, starts off with a tautology. Our ability to create human progress depends on our ability to create economic progress. Gee, progress requires progress to happen (or alternatively, you need more money to do more). Who knew? Also sees 3 key trends:

1) Slowdown of economic growth is a concern. (Maybe don’t tax and regulate economies to death?)

2) Traditional “economic tool kits” centered on monetary policy and fiscal policy “have become impotent”. (Hint: It is called a Liquidity Trap and has been known since the time of Keynes. You end up there if you print too much money for too long. Then the world has gone into debt up the whazoo. Yeah, y’all have screwed the economic pooch considerable.

3) “Economic Headwinds”. See the economic pooch screwing of too much debt and too much money printing in #2 above… But no, she thinks it is due to “inequality” and “climate change”… Then the old “Natural Resource Scarcity” that the Club Of Rome has been pushing for about 1/2 century now with Fear Porn like “The Limits To Growth”. Did you know we ran completely out of Natural Gas in 1990? Yup. That’s what they said would happen in the mid ’70s and their computer model said so, so it must be true. There is no shortage of natural resources. The whole planet is a natural resource. Then the potential for technology to create an unemployed underclass. Something that we have only ever seen as industrial transitions from old ways to new ways.

Does make a valid point that problems are long term, but “Policy Makers” are very short term oriented. Now if only she would look at the actual problems and not fantasy ones endorsed by the P.C. crowd. And also realize that Screwed Up Policies being a big issue, maybe they ought not try to fix it by promoting more Screwed Up Policies mandated by “Policy Makers”.

The solution? “structured fundamental policy initiatives” like “Infrastructure build outs, Education, Health Care”. So, OK, a Big Government approach based on “Policies” ’cause that has worked so well in the past… /snark;

Ms. Cabalo (sp?) handles the “social dimension” and thinks we need to redefine the relationship between “people, progress, and planet”. Somehow I think I hear a “NEW new green new deal” coming… Wants to put peoples “Dignity, also well being, and the notion of regeneration” at the “center of all policies”. Oh, and it will “only” require a “rethink of the whole global economic system”. Nothing big… /sarc; Need to stop treating “climate change” and “inequality” as externalizes, but need to be “held accountable” for them. (watch your wallet folks…)

Ms Woods is a Government prof / dean at Oxford. OK, bet she wants a Big Government solution. “Can’t contain Covid, can’t contain climate change, without cooperation” – so look out for UN non-treaty treaties… So need to invest in “human capitol” by having firms give the “working conditions and pay that keeps them coming to work”. Like that $15/ hour California wage for burger flippers that has put a load of them out of work, eh? Seems to think wages have nothing to do with what the product of that work is worth. So why not just pay everyone $100 and hour, eh? Wants government tax incentives for “investment in human beings not just machines”. (How about just not taxing employment at 12% for Social Security and not taxing wages, eh?) Wants the “path of least resistance” to be education and work, not unemployment and sitting at home. (Then how about dumping the Vexxine Mandates and bundles of barrier to entry regulations on various trades.) Wants more investment in “social capital” because zoom doesn’t bond people. (How about dumping the ban on in person meeting and get rid of mask mandates that just make things worse, eh?) Likes “compulsory military service” as a bonding mechanism. Because, you know, you really bonded with Fat Slow Freddie before he got shot trying to cross a field…/sarc; Thinks the “fix” is for Government to have a “Positive mind set to get things done” and unify all those folks who her survey found didn’t trust government by, you know, just doing it to them… /snark; Thinks getting trust in Local Government can “percolate up” to the national level (and international?). You know, kind of like trust in your local police make you trust the EU Army they want to make… or how trust in Sheriff Grady in Florida makes you really want to trust the Federal Entrapment Political Police (aka FBI).

The stupid in these people is almost as immense as their egos.

Then the Japanese lady (who’s name I’ve not latched onto just yet) is about to talk about the Ecological Angle. But I have to go make dinner, so more in a bit. At this point I’m 17 minutes into a 46 minute video, so more to come.

W.O.O.D. – 23 January 2022

Intro

This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)

Immediate prior one here:

https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2022/01/16/w-o-o-d-16-january-2022/
and remains open for threads running there (at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).

Canonical list of old ones here:
https://chiefio.wordpress.com/category/w-o-o-d/

FYI …

The Weekly Memes

I really really like these guy’s “top 10 memes”. They watch what is going on on Gab and Patriot.win and select the ones that they like best. A nice filtering service if nothing else; but the way they match music to the theme is also good. Unfortunately, can’t do an embed that works with my free WordPress plan (it does do free EwTube embeds… but only them, so you get to ‘Hit the link’!

16 Jan 2022 Whatfinger Top 7 News “All I Want Is The Truth”:

https://rumble.com/vspq5w-all-i-want-is-the-truth-whatfingers-7.html

Sunday. Steve Hilton reports from a 6-Jan survey: DEMOCRATS calling the System crap. Surprise!

Monday. This one is a Must See. Project Veritas DARPA document dump: Be ready to click pause to read some of the documents. Basically a US Military report that says it was lab developed via gain of function research, in China, and they KNEW Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin CURED IT.

Tuesday. Ted Cruz getting the old “I Know Nothing!” run around from the FBI when asked how much of 6-Jan was an entrapment put-up job, false flag.

Wednesday. Continues on the FBI hunt theme with an exploration of Ray Epps, the most likely FBI plant per available evidence; at least Tucker seems to think so. Twitter posted a headline saying it was all UNTRUE!!! so you can say they have now validated him as FBI meat. They don’t bother to deny things that are not political hot buttons.

Thursday. Tim Pool reports CNN viewership down 90% from last year. That’s gonna leave a mark on their revenue as they get paid by the eyeball-hours of ad exposure. Somebody is gonna get a pay cut…

Friday. Dr. Robert Malone on the “approved narrative dumpster fire”. Fauxi & the CDC admits masks don’t work, that the case numbers are bogus, and most (almost all) deaths are “with covid” not from it.

Saturday. Gutfeld rants on the “protect our asses reputation by lying about it” coming from a Wuhan Lab. Can’t annoy China and those loverly payola drops after all… At the end you get a Very Clear Read on where Greg G. is coming from: “Our leaders and experts lie and they suck.” I think folks are reaching that point where they are taking the gloves off, setting aside politeness, and calling an SOB lying to you a lying SOB.

17 Jan 2022. Trump Arizona Rally Special- or He’s Baaackk ;-)

https://rumble.com/vssffs-top-10-memes-arizona-rally-spectacular.html

I felt oddly uplifted by finding out Trump was back on the Rally Circuit. He, too, seems ready to rumble…

10. A “round the world” tour of who’s on the UN / WEF Build Back Broken train. Enlightening about the coordination globally among the swamp critter GEBs. Easy to spot them now. ANYONE promoting “Build Back Better” is Globalist Evil Bastard Pwned. Period. Get them out of your government as fast as possible by whatever means is available.

9. Miles and miles of folks trying to get to the Trump Rally. He’s pack’n ’em in.

8. Biden’s Empty Shelves on display. “Biden did this!”.

7. Why does the Capitol need a concrete wall? Because THEY are afraid. They know they stole the election and they know the people are not buying it. Only usurpers and dictators need walls around their palaces.

6. A closer look at FedEpps and the 6-Jan FBI entrapment operation false flag.

5. A 2 year state of emergency is no longer an emergency, it’s a dictatorship.

4. A brief look at the vexxine history from “highly effective” to immunity suppressing damage.

3. Trump judges, SCOTUS, and the scuttling of Mandates.

2. Another look at the Project Veritas DARPA data dump. LOTS of good details in there just dying for a big “Dig Here!”. Emphasizes the point that Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin WORK and these folks HID THAT FACT killing millions. This is murder. Criminal conspiracy to commit murder.

1. A look at the FauXi driven gain of function work that created Covid-19 and some of the evidence for it. Fairly damning really. The photo at the end looks like it might have come from Baby Biden’s laptop…

Some News Bits

It looks like the UK has tossed in the towel on that whole Global Reset Pandemic Lockdown & Assault on Citizens. Then Israel has a head Medico say the obvious, mistakes were made. Then layer on top that the Vexxine was called out as “boosters to the sky are bad” by the E.U.

Will wonders never cease… Looks to me like the whole narrative is crumbling around the Globalist’s Ears…

Now, about those Social Media Titans who decided banning their customers and gluing their mouths shut was a good idea: How’s that working out? Twitter down about 42% in the recent drop, about 1/2 from the peak this year alone.:

Twitter 1 year daily stock chart

Twitter 1 year daily stock chart

From $75 stock to $35 without really trying… Maybe the stock holders can take that up with the Board Of Directors election…

I’ve also gotten addicted to the Top Ten Memes of the week from WatchMAGA here:

https://rumble.com/c/c-285381

They have interesting “bite” to them, along with a tendency to highlight the news of the week in memes, so good as a social attitude pointer too. Plus they are “way fun” ;-)

Friends Of Australia Friday 21 January 2022

It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!

The Tucker

Thomas Farms mini-T-bone lamb chops, in a cast iron skillet, with “fries cut” purple potatoes coated with olive oil. Into the oven, 30 minutes at 375 F.

No starter or desert tonight. Just “Meat and Potatoes”.

It was a busy day… and we just wanted comfort food.

The Wine

The wine tonight is “19 Crimes The Uprising” red wine aged 30 days in rum barrels.

This is a very nice and drinkable wine. I was buying their 375 ml Aluminum Bottles of it at $2.99 each. It is a flavorful and smooth wine. Deep purple color, smooth and with lots of fruit with a bit of an overtone of raisins. 15% alcohol, but not so you would notice it. This is one wine to buy whenever you see it.

The News

The Omicron Covid variant is infecting everyone it can find, with a doubling time of 2 days. Hundreds of thousands / day in the USA. 883K today alone. 80K in Australia (so isolation from the world clearly has failed) Running rampant in Australia as it does not care about masks, vexxination, or whatever.

The good news is that it isn’t nearly as lethal as prior variants. The bad news is that officialdom is still refusing to tell people to take Vitamin D, C, E, and to use Zinc & Quercetin (or better yet, Ivermectin). Just get the failed vexxine and go to the hospital when you think you are going to die.

Is there any other news that matters?

Masks selected for a variant that does not care about masks as it is aerosolized. The Vexxine selected for variants that escaped the leaky vexxine. This was entirely predictable and in fact was predicted at the very start of this crap, and every month between then and now. It just wasn’t as profitable for the Big Drug industry and without any kick-backs for Fauxi and any other political operatives on the take.

Just get over it, realize the only person who will make your life better and return your liberties to you, is you. Then get up and start taking control of your life and doing what needs doing for you. I did, and I’m much happier than those who didn’t. I’ve been using Ivermectin, and for 2 years I’ve had no disease. I’ve been free of any fear of this plandemic for at least 1.5 years. I’ve crossed the country a half dozen times, without a mask, and mingled with about 1/4 million of my “closest strangers”. And No Bad Thing Happened. Not to me. Not to my spouse. Not to my friends who are doing the same protocol.

Take your therapeutics, tell your politicians to “go pound sand” and get on with a normal life. I did, and it’s been a nice couple of years.

You can not comply your way to liberty and freedom. So I don’t.

Blow Off Hawaii – Requires Boosters To Visit

Looks like Hawaii is not keeping up with the current “Science”. We now know that Booster Shots are useless for Omicron (and may even make infections worse and more common) and we know that Omicron is about as bad as a bad cold or mild flue.

We also know from international data that masks don’t do a thing; especially for Covid, and that internment, er, quarantine, increases contagion in the folks locked indoors.

So, of course, Hawaii wants to mandate that…

Well, I can say from personal experience that the beaches of Florida are just as good and in some ways better than the beaches of Hawaii. You wan’t the tropical island experience? Go to the Keys.

Hawaii? Just say NO!

https://abcnews.go.com/Health/hawaii-require-travelers-covid-booster-shot-fully-vaccinated/story?id=82307999

Hawaii to require travelers have COVID booster shot to be ‘fully vaccinated’
Gov. David Ige said the new rule will not go into effect for at least two weeks.

ByMary Kekatos
January 17, 2022, 6:07 PM
• 4 min read

Hawaii will likely require visitors to the state to have received a COVID-19 vaccine booster if they want to skip quarantine.

Currently, under the rules of the state’s “Safe Travels” program, travelers who don’t want to quarantine for five days must either be fully vaccinated — meaning two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine — or have a negative COVID-19 test within one day of travel

Good luck with that Tourist Industry, Hawaiians. I’m in California and it is about equal distance to both Florida and Hawaii by air (at least in terms of flight experience). Why would someone in Iowa choose a longer more painful flight to Draconian Hawaii, when they can have a quick flight to Florida and be on the beach an hour after they get off the plane?

5 DAYS in “lock up”, or “on the beach with a beer”? Decisions, decisions…

Tim Pool’s take on it all:

https://www.bitchute.com/video/IMMnfRtH2Is/

(Sidebar on Dependency Hell: Odysee has begun nagging me about my browser features, and often now does not play sound. So I’m using Bitchute links for Tim Pool videos instead.)

Later in this show he talks about a California bill that would double our already outrageous taxes. Oh Boy is Texas going to gain a lot more $millionaires and businesses!

I’m unable to decide if the Dimocrats are Terminally Stupid, or pwned by China so much they want to destroy their States for the payola…
