February 15th; Wednesday.
February 14th; Tuesday. The day of Saint Valentine. Seemingly quite a character.

February 13th; Monday. The day of an Italian Carmelite nun who had visions & ecstasies in the 1480s and early 1490s: Saint Archangela Girlani. Her horse decided against her first choice of monastic order, and there was a bit of levitation later on.
February 12th; Sunday.

February 11th; Saturday.
February 10th; Friday.

February 9th; Thursday.
February 8th; Wednesday.

February 7th; Tuesday.
February 6th; Monday.

February 5th; Sunday. Day of the superhuman-sounding Saint Agatha of Sicily, a girl in the late 240s AD tortured to death (251 AD) for wishing to be Christian and remain a virgin. Patron saint of rape victims, wet nurses, and bellfounders.
February 4th; Saturday. A rather intriguing saint today, Saint Joan of Valois, married off in the 1470s aged 12 to be queen of France as wife of Louis 12th, a marriage quickly annulled, a decision she calmly took in good grace before not long after founding an abbey of nuns.

February 3rd; Friday. The media have been helping to cover up how unvaccinated people were being tracked and spied on.
February 2nd; Candlemas, formerly one of the big festivals of the church, at least pre-Reformation.

February 1st; Wednesday. There is a pharmacy on the next street with an outdoor sign which flashes with green LEDs and forms a thick-armed plus sign of green light, or a Greek cross. It projects out somewhat from the building's facade, and has recently been on the blink a bit. Sometimes I walk past in the day, and the current has failed. What is left is the unlit dull-green plastic base, which turns out to be a perfect sideways Latin cross, because the longer arm projecting out of the stonework is just the right length. Most pharmacies don't have a Latin base, only the Greek cross. I can't really think up any significance to this, although the staff at this particular apothecary are quite sweet-natured. The shop right next door sells admirably cheap stuff, including a trashy random box of disposable razors, and another trashy random box of cheap ball-point pens. Buying black or blue Bic biros from here and elsewhere, as I have done since school, I recently noticed a consistent shift. In the olden days the little stud stayed in the end, and the transparent plastic case didn't crack or split. These days (whether I get them here or somewhere more expensive) the see-through case always cracks, chips, and drops the end stud out before the ink is even half-finished. Thinking this over, there must be knock-off manufacturers in the Far East who are making easily counterfeited fake Bic biros with cheaper processes, cheaper materials, or by skimping on quality control. That's my guess, anyway. No, I never chew them.
January 31st; Tuesday. Mother's birthday. How much we now know about the complete failure of the mRNA covid-19 vaccines.

January 30th; Monday. Holy day of Saint Aldegunais, a princess who lived in 7th-century-AD France.
January 29th; Sunday. Intriguing discussion of why a Japanese premier was assassinated last July.

January 27th; Friday. During another strange episode of loud drumming & chanting from the flat upstairs Annette and I decide to watch the 2005 animation film 'Madagascar'. Tremendous fun, although the Netflix settings forced us to watch dubbed in German and I don't speak German. Still, I hardly noticed: the whole film was easy to follow, even if I missed hearing the voices of Chris Rock & Sasha Baron-Cohen. I'm guessing the Jada woman married to poor Will Smith was the voice of the hippo character in English. Two things were uncanny about this film.
(1) It strangely echoes, though very tactfully, the Murray book just below about western civilisation. The urbanised animals in the New York zoo have grown lazy and accustomed to the luxuries of city life. The wilderness of the African rainforest frightens them with its brutal eat-or-be-eaten code of life, and they are only persuaded to stay there in a deal to become a sort of Praetorian Guard of big animals helping to protect the kingdom of small party-animal lemurs ('I like to move it, move it') from their natural predators. In an absurd but touching scene, Alex the hyperactive lion begins to see all the other animals as dancing beefsteaks, and imprisons himself inside a pallisade of sharpened sticks so that he cannot go feral and attack, even kill & eat, his dear friend Marty the zebra. The whole film very gently lampoons white post-colonial guilt, with the westernised zoo creatures shocked by the horrors of the pre-colonial non-western culture they thought was theirs. A culture of primordial wilderness they had romanticised, Montaigne-&-Rousseau-style, because they couldn't remember how cruel and ruthless it was. Lampoons it so cleverly that most audiences -- even most of the participating actors, I suspect -- never guessed the film's real message.
(2) In the 1990s I had a curiously vivid dream one night at my mother's house. In this dream I imagined making a film (monochrome, titled 'Zoo-break') about animals escaping from a zoo. The break-out was the core of the story, and the whole thing played out in my dream as a deadpan comedy, not an animation, but played by human actors dressed in animal suits. If anything the film was to be not about animals returning to wilderness, but a parody of a prison-break movie. The groups of actors in animal suits were seen in their separate cages and enclosures during a long roving single-take shot, set to 1950s bebop modern jazz, playing cards and grumpily gambling. Each animal would speak a British regional dialect, so that the lions might be Cockneys, the polar bears Glaswegians, the crocodiles Geordies, tigers from Birmingham, sharks from Belfast, zebras from Liverpool. In my dream, it was two Scouser zebras who succeeded in getting over the fence during the jail riot. There were to be scenes of the two zebras wearing dark glasses for disguise, strolling (two-legged) along the shopping streets of the surrounding British town, unnoticed by passers-by, from time to time furtively trying to break into parked cars. I guess this was the same visual joke as the moment in 'Madagascar' where Marty the zebra gets out of the zoo one night, that zebras already have the same black-and-white-striped uniforms that convicts in old silent movies sometimes wore to make them easy to spot if they escaped. It's obviously not such an unusual idea that it couldn't occur to different people at different times. After all, there's also this.

January 26th; Thursday. Two more short military videos: decades of developments behind both anti-tank weapons and what pilots call "loft bombing".
January 25th; Wednesday. A Norwegian shipping firm bans transport of electrical vehicles due to fire risk.

January 24th; Tuesday. More about the pseudo-vaccines:
(a) The mRNA injections increase myocarditis risk ninefold /
(b) Totally unembarrassed, they now want to impose annual jabs /
(c) Numbers admitted to have been killed by the mRNA jabs still quite low (278,000 in the US) but are now starting to climb /
(d) Mini-scandal where a senior Pfizer official is supposedly tricked into admitting on a hidden camera that his firm might mutate the covid-19 virus so as to be able to sell more injections /
(e) Pilots at one US airline are dying at six times the normal rate -- nothing to do with forced injection with gene-modifying elixirs of course /
(f) "Vaccinated" people are three and a half times more likely to catch covid-19 than the unvaxxed /
(g) Why are educated people so stupid about vax injuries? /
(h) Huge rise in excess deaths and still unacceptable to mention the obvious cause.
Apparently at some point today, Tuesday, in his flat just up the street Simon, Robin's long-term snooker opponent, blew his brains out with a firearm he obtained from somebody. He thereby fulfilled a promise he was (I was told)) making exactly two years ago, though out of my earshot. Tam shrewdly refused to obtain a weapon for him almost three years ago. After another Englishman called Simon, a Cambridge contemporary of mine many years ago, this is now the second English Simon I've known personally who's moved to Budapest and then taken his own life. Meanwhile, this same evening I spend trying to get Huseyin to come with me to a nearby hospital to check if he has concussion, and then driving around looking for a parking space, and then trying to persuade the hospital to see him and test him.
January 23rd; Monday. While on the tram to and from a lesson with Esoteric Veronica, finished two books kind folk have recently lent me. First I got to the end of Paul & Marion's copy of 'The War on the West' by Douglas Murray, and then also finished Tam's 'The Rational Male' by Rollo Tomassi. Murray's book politely dismantles the Woke movement, showing that not only does it exaggerate the crimes of western civilisation, but deliberately downplays the much greater crimes of non-western civilisations. Pompous posturing by talentless leftists who've had university educations wasted on them. Murray says this with more restraint than I just did.
Tomassi's book is strange, especially given he seems to have a cult around him. His books have grown out of online weblogs and advice columns, and as such seem to regard punctuation, spelling, and editing as frivolous diversions. For example, 'Foreword' is spelled out in big title letters as 'Forward'. In any case, Rollo says essentially one thing, and says it often enough to drum in a clear message. This is that men today are misinformed on how to treat women and on what women want from men. He uses various concepts (such as young women going through a phase called 'The Party Years' before they decide, several years too late, that it is time for them to marry and have children) to explain this repeated message. Tomassi says the same thing most older women before World War One said about how young women should make life decisions, and how men should handle those older women's daughters, younger sisters, nieces, grand-daughters.

January 22nd; Sunday. From the 24th, in two days, the European Commission have announced that powder, or "flour", made from ground-up insects may be added to food. What's curious is that not only does this fit with the business plans of certain billionaire lobbyists, but it contrasts rather oddly with the EU for years loudly claiming the moral high ground over banning US food items containing genetically modified grains.
Annette & Huseyin arrive late, having been in not one but two car pile-ups on an Austrian motorway last night.
January 21st; Saturday. A couple of short military videos about China's laser rifle and about drones built in Turkey.

January 20th; Friday. Finish reading Tam's copy of 'Injection Molds for Beginners', a guide to designing and making the industrial moulds in which plastic objects like car dashboards, kitchen sieves, or lightswitch covers are manufactured. The colour illustrations are surprisingly lush.
January 19th; Thursday. The pope who died a few days ago has published a posthumous book packed with scurrilous allegations.

January 18th; Wednesday. How we now know that most covid-19 infections and deaths were caused by mRNA injections forced on populations by their governments in 2021 & 2022. Solving the double puzzle of why African countries both took so few pseudo-vaccinations and suffered so little from covid-19.
January 17th; Tuesday. A doctor admits that the original covid-19 deaths that panicked people into agreeing to experimental injections were heavily overcounted. This must have been done deliberately so as to fuel fearful compliance with the unnecessary & irresponsible vaccination drive. As I warned lots of people, including two of my sisters and one of my editors, at the time. Everybody knew better than me of course.

January 16th; Monday. An overview of sudden deaths of professional sportsmen in the last two years, many on the playing field, and whether these deaths might have been caused by mRNA injections forced on athletes by sports associations.
January 15th; Sunday. Four days ago, Matt Hancock MP, one of the most unapologetic mRNA-injection mandaters, accused Andrew Bridgen MP, a defender of the vaccine-injured, of "anti-semitism" for comparing the deaths since 2021 to the WW2 Holocaust (Bridgen was quoting a cardiologist who said to him he thought the forced vaccinations were the worst crime against humanity since that genocide). Hancock made this accusation in a question in the House of Commons to prime minister Rishi Sunak, who then agreed with him. Bridgen had the Conservative whip removed in late December, which amounts to his suspension from the party.

January 14th; Saturday. Today is Saint Felix Day, though perhaps I might ease up on tracking the calendar of Christian festivals, fascinating as it is.
Returning to the dreary but important scandal of the day, the Human Papillomavirus vaccine, long seen as a top performer among vaccines, is re-examined here. Covid-19-vaccinated people are "dying while fuelling variants", exactly what you'd expect from breaking the golden rule that it's irresponsible to vaccinate during an epidemic because vaccination pushes the virus to mutate into deadlier forms. Meanwhile, the strange run of deaths among (whisper it softly) recently-injected athletes, often dying while on the playing field, gets more scientific attention.
January 13th; 8th day of the Epiphany.

January 12th; 7th day of the Epiphany.
January 11th; 6th day of the Epiphany.

January 10th; 5th day of the Epiphany.
A stack of miscellaneous news items about all aspects of the strange global coup attempt we find ourselves in:
[1] The Davos annual jamboree in their high place is underway. German-language news services report the Swiss valley is packed with expensive prostitutes /
[2] Wealthy businessmen (referred to as Davos types, but of course not only) are now buying up unvaccinated pilots, since they know that vaxxed pilots are liable to strokes and heart attacks, especially at altitude /
[3] A quick list of US shakers & movers attending the ski-resort get-together /
[4] Australia stops breaking out covid-19 deaths into vaxxed versus unvaxxed: check why at the bottom of the table -- suddenly time to censor that info /
[5] Returning to pilots' health, a curious change from the US airline regulator, the FAA, softening health requirements for cockpit crew /
[6] And here we go again. The airline regulator, the FAA, announced a new vaccine for pilots just two days before Christmas. As if none of 2021 or 2022 had happened -- this should jolt anyone who thinks these people are going to give up easily /
[7] Excess deaths continue to mount /
[8] Falling births continue to break records /
[9] Pfizer finds a way to say that 5-year-olds benefit from mRNA vaccination, although they don't /
[10] Good summary from Unherd about the central role of Davos /
[11] Another trick to hide deaths caused by the vaccines -- adjust the paperwork so doctors cannot cite vaccine reaction as a cause of death /
[12] Just a fresh reason to distrust hospitals /
[13] The long-term decline in pharmaceutical earnings that motivated this and several previous scandals /
[14] How pharmaceutical firms and the globalists created a system to censor and manipulate most of the mainstream media /
[15] A commentator with a good track record places a wager that mRNA injections have caused worse cardiac damage than anyone's admitted /
[16] A fascinating claim that the pandemic that made the word 'pandemic' famous, the 1918/1919 flu epidemic, was caused by a vaccine /
[17] Even now, the totally unembarrassed Tony Fauci is criticising China for easing the failed "lockdown" restrictions that we now know had no good effects, but caused substantial harm /
[18] Swedish doctors call for the dangerous mRNA injections to be withdrawn /
[19] Another list of athletes who "died suddenly" after the 2021 mRNA injections /
[20] Facebook admits that it suppressed "often true" covid-19-vaccine content /
[21] More on excess deaths still being blamed on anything but mRNA injections /
[22] Yet more on the supposedly "mysterious" excess deaths /
[23] Now we know how unhealthy & useless they are, vaccine profiteers are demanding mRNA modifiers be put into the food supply, since "vaccines in our food solves the problem of vaccine hesitancy" /
[24] An article claims there is a "vaccine-induced pandemic".
January 9th; 4th day of the Epiphany. The full Fabriano image, showing how meticulously the painting was done.

January 8th; 3rd day of the Epiphany. And here one of the adoring magi paintings where the manger looks more like a derelict abbey than an actual barn.
January 7th; 2nd day of the Epiphany. Apparently, there are 8 days, an Octave. It seems this includes celebration of the water-into-wine miracle, but mainly marks the adoration of the magi.

January 6th; 13th day of Christmas, also 1st day of the Feast of the Epiphany. In the Eastern Orthodox denominations this is Christmas Day. A month ago, a small group planning to violently instal someone called Heinrich the 13th as king of Germany had about 25 of its plotters arrested in a huge police round-up involving 3,000 officers. Since Heinrich the 13th is in fact a genuine nobleman/prince, the label "far-right" is being used correctly for perhaps the first time in over a century.
January 5th; 12th day of Christmas, feast day of Saint Simeon the Stylite (390 to 459 AD). Back in the great days of the western fakirs, when crouching on top of a pillar for months on end was a thing a respectable Christian hermit might do. Truly another era of history.

January 4th; 11th day of Christmas, 11 pipers piping. A sudden, quite exciting day trip to the vineyard town of Tokaj with Niklas & Celia, where we quaff amber dessert wines down in the underground bunkers of Erzsebet cellar and Rakoczi cellar.
January 3rd; 10th day of Christmas
{i} The pseudo-vaccines are reigniting cancer tumours /
{ii} Australian politician slates vaccine mandates /
{iii} More worries on Pfizer injection safety /
{iv} Covid-19 pseudo-vaccines causing neurological damage /
{v} US government was using Twitter to censor genuine covid information /
{vi} Cancer deaths from covid-19 injections being hidden /
{vii} More on the outrageous campaign to suppress use of cheap & safe ivermectin.

January 2nd; 9th day of Christmas, Saint Basil's day. Rambunctuous festivities at Irish Michael's, involving wine, song, and a couple of rather distinguished women.
January 1st; 8th day of Christmas, and also the feast day of the wonderfully named Saint Frobert of Troyes, where the special ounces come from.

Languages dying out each week - who cares?

We do - otherlanguages.org is gradually building a reference resource for over five thousand linguistic minorities and stateless languages worldwide.

Thousands of unique language communities are becoming extinct. Out of the world's five to six thousand languages, we hardly know what we're losing, what literatures, philosophies, ways of thinking, are disappearing right now.


We may soon regret the extinction of thousands of entire linguistic cultures even more than we regret the needless extinction of many animals and plants.

The planet is increasingly dominated by a handful of major-language monocultures like Mandarin Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, Indonesian, Urdu, Spanish, Portuguese, English, Swahili, Russian, Cantonese Chinese, Japanese, Bengali - all beautiful and fascinating languages.

But so are the 5,000 others.

These are groups of people?

Linguistic minorities are communities of ordinary people whose native tongue is not their country's main official language. Swedish speakers in Finland, French speakers in Canada, Hungarian speakers in Slovakia - and hundreds more - are linguistic minorities.

And totally stateless languages are the native languages of some of the world's most intriguing, little-known, cultures. Like the Lapps inside the Arctic Circle, the Sards in Sardinia, Ainus in Japan. Cherokee in the US, Scots Gaelic in Britain, Friesian in the Netherlands, Zulu in South Africa. There are only a couple of hundred recognised sovereign states and territories, so 5,000 languages - more depending on how you count - are the native tongues of linguistically stateless people.

How could I help?

You don't need to learn an endangered language - any more than go to live in the rainforest to help slow its destruction.

A good start is to just tell friends about websites like this.

Broader public interest makes it easier for linguists to raise funds and organise people to learn these languages while there's time.

That's right. There are people who love languages and are happy to learn them on behalf of the rest of us, but they need support, just like zoologists, botanists, or historians.

Fewer languages still sounds good to me

Depends what you think languages are for. They're not just a tool for business. We never said you should learn three or four thousand rare languages - or even one. And which ones we make children learn in school, or whether we should force children to learn languages at all, is another question.

Typical scene in a European city; Chances are, folk here speak some sort of foreign language *5

A century ago - before we understood ecology, and when we cared less about wilderness, most educated people would have laughed at the idea of worrying about plants or animals going extinct. Now we understand how important species diversity is for our own futures, we are more humble, and more worried.

In the same way, linguistic triumphalism by English-speakers who hated studying foreign grammar at school is dangerously ignorant as well as arrogant. Few of us know what we are losing, week by week. How many people realise these languages have scientific value?

Scientific value?

You can think of these languages across the planet as beautiful cathedrals or precious archeological sites we are watching being destroyed. That should be motive enough.

But these five thousand languages may also hold clues to the structure of the human mind. Subtle differences and similarities

Wireless radio can be a great comfort to those unable to leave the textbooks in which they live *6
between languages are helping archeologists and anthropologists to understand what happened in the hundreds of centuries of human history before written history. And that is one of our best chances of understanding how human brains developed over the thousands of centuries leading up to that.

Study of the mind and study of language go hand in hand these days. The world's most marginal languages are actually precious jigsaw pieces from an overall picture of who we are and how our species thinks and evolves. Every tiny language adds another brightly-coloured clue to this academic detective story.

Yet researchers have hardly started sifting through this tantalising evidence, and language extinction is washing it away right in front of us.

And worst of all, most people have no idea that there is this fantastic profusion of cultures across our world, let alone that they are in danger of extinction. Even just more people learning that there are still five thousand living languages in the world today (most of us would answer five hundred or fifty) is already a huge help.

We English-speakers hardly notice English - it's like air for us. But every other language is also an atmosphere for an entire cultural world, and each of these worlds has people whose home it is. Each language encapsulates a unique way of talking and thinking about life. Just try some time in a foreign prison, being forced to cope in another language, and you'll realise how much your own language is your identity. That's true for everyone.

Minority languages are a human-rights issue?

One of the most basic.

Dozens of millions of people worldwide suffer persecution from national governments for speaking their mother tongue - in their own motherland.

Many 'ethnic' feuds puzzling to outsiders had as their basis an attempt to destroy a linguistic community. Would the Northern Ireland dispute be quite so bitter if we English had not so nearly stamped out the Irish Gaelic language, for example? Almost nowhere in the world does a language community as small as the few thousand Rheto-Romanic speakers - the fourth official language of Switzerland - get the protection of a national government. Next time you see some Swiss Francs, check both sides of the banknote.

But outside exceptional countries like Switzerland or the Netherlands, speakers of non-official languages have a much less protected experience.

Speakers of minority languages are often seen as a threat by both the governments and the other residents of the countries where they were born, grew up, and try to live ordinary lives.

They experience discrimination in the job and education markets of their homelands, often having no choice but to pursue education in the major language of the host state: a deliberate government policy usually aimed at gradually absorbing them into the majority culture of that country.

Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow, of course *7

Most governments are privately gleeful each time another small separate culture within their borders is snuffed out by a dwindling population or a deliberately centralising education system.

The United Nations is no help. It is an association of a couple of hundred sovereign states based on exclusive control of territory, almost all of them anxious to smother any distinct group or tradition that in any way might blur or smudge the hard-won borders around those pieces of territory.

The usual approach by sovereign states is to deny their linguistic minorities even exist.

December 31st; 7th day of Christmas, the feast of Saint Sylvester 1st, the Pope who led Christians up out of the catacombs when persecution ended. Also, champagne dinner with Tim, Niklas, and Celia, at a fine restaurant seemingly dedicated to the memory of an interpreter of Rene Guenon, eccentric librarian & writer Bela Hamvas.
December 30th; 6th day of Christmas, the Feast of the Holy Family, a movable feast celebrated on the Sunday of the Christmas-to-New-Year's-Day week, is celebrated on December 30th when there is no Sunday during that slot. Here's a startling case from 2001, when Pfizer engaged, it seems, in major corruption to crush a lawsuit on behalf of 200 Nigerian children crippled by another of their vaccines:
here, here, here, here, and also here.

December 29th; 5th day of Christmas, day of Thomas Becket's martyrdom in 1170 AD.
December 28th; Childermass Day, also known as Feast of the Holy Innocents, also known as the 4th day of Christmas -- talking of murdered Holy Innocents.

December 27th; Feast of John the Apostle, author of the gospel and (according to some Christians) author also of the final book of the New Testament, the rather alarming 'Revelation'. 3rd day of Christmas.
December 26th; Feast of the Protomartyr Saint Stephen. Sounds a little more dignified than Boxing Day. Pictured here by Fra Angelico in the 1440s as if contemporaneous with another martyr, Saint Lawrence. Lawrence (lower panel, my guess) was killed in Rome about three centuries after Stephen (upper panel, if I'm right) was killed in Jerusalem today probably in AD 36. 2nd day of Christmas.

December 25th; Christmas Day.
December 24th; Christmas Eve, the Feast of the Nativity of the Christ Child. Delicious dinner at the artwork-packed apartment of Irish Michael, Papal Knight, with Lance & Jane. By creepy contrast, here are some sinister visions of babies growing in Brave-New-World-style artificial labs or factory pods.

December 23rd; Friday. Nigeria bullies citizens to switch to its digital currency.
December 22nd; Thursday. Switzerland might ban electric cars this winter, so as to save on energy.

December 21st; Wednesday. A TV show I watched as a child "Tomorrow's World" - I'd forgotten how much they experimented with the show format. Here's James Burke making gentle fun of the efficient office of the future. Later, in 1979, a Finnish instructional video on how to open a door. "The door is approached calmly."
December 20th; Tuesday. More detail on the collapse of the FTX crypto fund, which celebrities it is pulling down, how it's covered in major newspapers, and how the debacle is now, it seems, coming to a head.

December 19th; Monday. Autopsy studies look into sudden deaths at home soon after mRNA injection. Other autopsies confirm mRNA jab & cardiac illness link.
December 18th; Sunday. Informed scepticism now spreading to influenza "vaccines". Meanwhile foetal stillbirths explode.

December 17th; Saturday. US medicine regulatory body, the FDA, finally admits that Pfizer's mRNA injections against covid-19 (these skipped at least five years of testing before introduction in 2021) cause heart & blood problems. So far, the FDA is only admitting that the injections clearly cause dangerous blood clots in older people, claiming other cardiac concerns "need more study".
December 16th; Friday. Former criminal investigator claims 2021 e-mail reveals the FDA deliberately overlooking Pfizer fraud.

December 15th; Thursday. Why mass vaccination worsened the covid-19 epidemic.
December 14th; Wednesday. Arrest of FTX crypto-fund founder in the Bahamas reported. Strange features of the case keep accumulating.

December 13th; Tuesday. Quiet dinner with Irish Michael. What does CISA stand for?
December 12th; Monday. Another suspicious pandemic simulation organised by the usual suspects. Simulation, prediction, or planning rehearsal?

December 11th; Sunday. Three items via the Rumble news service listing the crimes of Anthony Fauci: item 1 - lies about Wuhan / item 2 - lies about early treatment / item 3 - obstruction of medical treatment.
December 10th; Saturday. Nice little film about possible extra elements outside today's periodic table, in other words the fabled island of stability.

December 9th; Friday. Once-trendy theologian Don Cupitt talks in a TV show about Wittgenstein & religion. Ludwig's austere, minimalist approach to thought, almost a kind of auto-nihilist attack on philosophy itself, certainly goes well with the more extreme versions of bare-white-cell Protestantism. Cupitt (or someone in the TV production team) is good on the physical spaces, the various rooms Wittgenstein taught or studied or lived in.
December 8th; Thursday. Two snatches of film interviews with the late actor Christopher Lee. The first older, labelled as 1970s, but more likely 1960s - the second a little newer.

December 7th; Wednesday. Two intriguing (video) trips down microbiology memory lane: The 1976 swine flu scandal & then a whiteboard lecture from someone who long ago suggested that AIDS was created in the lab.
December 6th; Tuesday. More about the fashionable ESG scores.

December 5th; Monday. The FBI seem to be hanging on to the second Seth Rich laptop for some curious reason. Is the FBI's behaviour suspicious?
December 4th; Sunday. New York Post asks CIA chiefs who in 2020 called the Hunter Biden laptop story Russian disinfo for their reaction now that it's clear the NY Post story was completely correct, it wasn't Russian disinfo at all, and the CIA staff knew both those things so were lying: unsurprisingly, none of the treasonous spooks want to comment.

December 3rd; Saturday. A list of increasingly pressing questions about the covid-19 scam-scare, put by the Epoch Times website:
{i} Who is ready to apologise for lying about ivermectin? /
{ii} Why does the Biden administration persist enforcing vaccine mandates? /
{iii} Are the "vaccine"/gene-therapies installing new DNA code in the bodies of the injected? /
{iv} Why are media outlets so slow to acknowledge that covid-19 is an epidemic of the vaccinated? /
{v} Are vaccine-free people's worries about the vaccinated justified? /
{vi} Who has realised that "vaccine"/gene-therapy side effects are mounting? /
{vii} Why do different cardiologists now agree on mRNA-vaccine heart-related side-effects? /
{viii} Why were the vaccines not withdrawn earlier? /
{ix} Should we be concerned by the strange ingredients in the mRNA vaccines? /
{x} Should the appalling behaviour of the vaccine-bigots be forgiven? /
{xi} Do the mRNA vaccines reactivate old viruses? /
{xii} How can we tell if a vaccine correlates with ill-health?
December 2nd; Friday. Janos takes Irish Michael & me to a wine-tasting event with cheese & song. An article from August: If the UK government believes its own data, it should tell people not to get vaccinated.

December 1st; Thursday. Some days ago listened to a quite helpful history discussion on Melvyn Bragg's BBC radio show, about the Orthodox/Catholic schism of 1054.
November 30th; Wednesday. Vigorous month-old protests in Brazil continue against what many voters there claim was October's tampered election to replace anti-globalist Bolsonaro with pro-globalist Lula. Significantly, since Oct 30th Lula has been quick to draft laws to criminalise criticism of mRNA vaccines (text in Portuguese). Brazil's central bank is likewise in a hurry, to develop a programmable digital currency (text in Portuguese).

November 29th; Tuesday. Overview of the statistical deception that claimed covid-19 was even a serious problem in the first place.
November 28th; Monday. Oncologist says covid-19 mRNA boosters exacerbate his patients' cancers.

November 27th; Sunday. Another round-up of tales of weaponised, politicised science:
(a) South Pole temperatures hit record lows for unprecedented November coldness /
(b) UN vaccine-mandating treaty to overrule national constitutions /
(c) Another part of the 2020 covid-19 narrative made of whole cloth /
(d) So not a "pandemic of the unvaccinated" at all, but in fact unvaccinated people are endangered by the jabbed due to vaccinated people's infectiousness /
(e) NHS England non-covid bed use exceeds entire January 2021 capacity /
(f) Pandemic thermal-tool screening was perhaps unlawful /
(g) The more heavily vaccinated a country, the higher the excess deaths /
(h) Satellite record shows eight years global cooling /
(i) The positive climate role of carbon dioxide /
(j) View gains traction that "fossil fuels" are not made of fossils. Plus this.
November 26th; Saturday. Some general stories that give a range of insights into our strange times:
* i * The globalist elite fear patriotism? /
* ii * Congressmen ask how US government money was recycled to the Democrats through the now-collapsing FTX fund /
* iii * Canadian doctors propose to drug, coerce, and classify as mentally ill people refusing vaccination /
* iv * Doctors claim to be "baffled" by the mysterious and sudden rise in "sudden adult death syndrome", the growing number of excess deaths which obviously correlate with the post-2021 mRNA vaccination drive and nothing else /
* v * A preposterous lawsuit (for 500 billion USD damages, yes half a trillion) for someone who dared to defy the pro-vaccine narrative /
* vi * What now looks very much like a last-minute rehearsal for the covid project -- a deadly (and unnecessary) November 2019 vaccination drive in Samoa.

November 25th; Friday. Dr Paul Alexander says the deep state sabotaged Trump's covid-19 response.
November 24th; Thursday. Did scientists inadvertently cause the AIDS epidemic?

November 23rd; Wednesday. A driver called Aladar Farkas working for Bolt Taxi takes me an hour out of my way, claiming all the time to be misled by his GPS app. Even though I repeatedly ask why he is driving the wrong way, several times spell out the destination address, and clearly say "15th district" on at least three occasions, he lies at the destination, claiming I gave him the wrong address. Charming!
November 22nd; Tuesday. Here's a documentary about French thinker Jacques Ellul, unfortunately obstructed by a Vimeo registration wall. I don't really buy Ellul's thesis about problems in present-day society ('The Betrayal of/by Technology'), but we all like a bit of Francophone theorising now and then.

November 21st; Monday. Someone to inspire all of us. Chinese man ("Uncle Chen") finishes marathon with a good time, apparently chain-smoking while running.
November 20th; Sunday. An interesting (and huge) scandal which has largely been sidelined from mainstream media attention, perhaps because of the high status of many of its backers, is the Theranos fraud. It deserves renewed attention because it shows the nexus between biotechnology, dishonest finance, and hidden establishment support that made the covid-19 scare-scam possible. Its pioneering woman founder Elizabeth Homes, who was a media darling for her bold breaking of industry stereotypes, gets eleven years inside.

November 19th; Saturday. Enthusiasm on Wall Street for a new asset class monetising nature explains part of what's been happening. Long article, but worthwhile.
November 18th; Friday. A US Senator says the taboo-but-obvious: there isn't going to be a shift away from "fossil" fuels.

November 17th; Thursday. Increasing numbers of electric-car battery fires.
November 16th; Wednesday. Politicians from several countries meeting in Bali declare their support (paragraph 32) for the creation of programmable digital money (CBDCs), by which the spending of every single individual can be controlled with fine-tuned precision. This was of course the real purpose of the covid-19 epidemic, plus 2020's and 2021's pre-rehearsed wave of overregulation of, & overreaction to, covid-19 by governments worldwide.

November 15th; Tuesday. Banks in New York now test a roll-out of, yes, a programmable digital dollar. We enter the long-planned covid-crisis endgame.
November 14th; Monday. A scandal is breaking with the collapse of US crypto-currency fund FTX which ought to cause enormous concern. Briefly it appears
(1) Biden officials sent US-taxpayer funds to Ukraine to assist their war effort,
(2) some of these funds were invested in FTX crypto by Ukrainian interests.
(3) FTX then funnelled this money back to the US funding both illegal campaign finance and mass vote tampering in the mid-term elections last week. This then
(4) enabled pro-Biden Democrats to strangely win or survive last week's elections despite voter majorities very publicly against them.
a) Majid Nawaz gives a cogent overview of the FTX collapse /
b) a proper text summary /
c) a radio summary /
d) a video summary /
e) old web page shows WEF links to FTX now apparently removed from the web /
f) FTX chairman arrested in the Bahamas /
g) wealthy sports players helped promote FTX /
h) Armstrong sums up the FTX scandal and finally -
i) narrow control of 18 states achieved by seeming pin-point control of votes and
j) communist Chinese state ownership of US voting machine firms criticised.

November 13th; Sunday. Once-august medical journal The Lancet now.
November 12th; Saturday. A real map: how the Holy Roman Empire looked at the end of the terrible Thirty Years' War. Now that the Westphalia Doctrine is under attack.

November 11th; Friday. First World War Armstice Day (here's a photo of an amusing history coincidence). Meanwhile, votes have still not all been counted in Tuesday's election in the US, echoing a curious new pattern of votes going heavily one way among in-person voters, but then being reversed by mail-in ballots counted later.
November 10th; Thursday. Quentin Tarantino saying that the 1980s 'Top Gun' movie was really all about homosexuality. Understand the film at last!

November 9th; Wednesday. People who got infected with spike proteins by contact with vaccine recipients. A pandemic of the vaccinated.
November 8th; Tuesday. Quick update of news on the covid-vaccine deception.
{1} Plotters caught looking around for some new would-be epidemic (video) /
{2} Mainstream media starting to seriously question the rush-job mRNA vaccines /
{3} Weird reports of the vaccine contents continue /
{4} More evidence that the early covid-19 fatality figures were pumped up /
{5} Covid-19-mRNA-vaccine-caused sickness now a medically recognised syndrome /
{6} More on the newly acknowledged Covid-19-mRNA-vaccine-caused sickness /
{7} So, PCR "tests" were deliberately used to wildly exaggerate the scale of the initial covid-19 epidemic, just as PCR's inventor (who died in August 2019 in the same week as Jeffrey Epstein) Nobel Laureate Kary Mullis warned they would be /
{8} Miscarriages and stillbirths officially attributed to a vaccine reaction since 1990. Considering how much negative mRNA-vaccine data was deliberately suppressed, the real numbers could be, and likely are, far worse /
{9} Lack of warnings from doctors /
{10} Covid-19 virus prefers vaccinated people by a ratio of 7 to 1 /
{11} More about the nano-detritus found in some vaccine vials (video) /
{12} Lots of Australians now regret getting vaccinated /
{13} Valuable history: the supposed miracle vaccines of decades past /
{14} UK government figures show that refusing the vaccine is wiser /
{15} Weird & alarming hidden data from vaccine animal trials (video).

November 7th; Monday. Court case challenges Uganda's digital-ID mandates.
November 6th; Sunday. The government of Scotland admits that wearing operating-theatre paper masks for hours each day is unhealthy.

November 5th; Saturday. Guy Fawkes Night - for fairness, here's an article alleging that the November 4th, 1605, arrest of Fawkes was a false-flag operation (or a let-it-happen operation) akin to the sinking of the Lusitania, the burning of the Reichstag, the alleged Gulf of Tonkin attack, or the 2001 attacks on New York's World Trade Center. Oddly enough, Barry Zwicker does not, at least in this abridged version of the piece, mention the attack on Pearl Harbo(u)r, which is easily the closest recent event in style to what Zwicker alleges the Gunpowder Plot really was. A not-really-false-flag operation in other words. A genuine plot that Cecil's spies allowed to almost succeed for maximum impact. I'd like to read John Gerard's book written at the time.
November 4th; Friday. In a strange incident days ago, a man was arrested on October 28th while fighting with US politician Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul at night in the Pelosi home - according to one report the fight used a hammer while one or both men were in their underwear. However, the intruder appears to have been voluntarily let into the house without any break-in. The media's attempt to frame this as a politically motivated attack on a senior Democratic household is starting to unravel.
(a) The attacker's "right wing" "history" of internet posts appears to have been put in place on the day of the attack, in a rushed attempt to change public perceptions of what happened /
(b) The attacker seems to live with a commune of leftists in reality /
(c) Furthermore, Nancy's husband Paul, a man in his 80s, seems to have told police officers the intruder was "a friend", the hammer belonged to Paul Pelosi, and the intruder's fellow commune residents are claimed to be radical gay nudists some of whom work as gay prostitutes /
(d) None of the emergency phone call transcripts nor the police bodycam footage have been released.

November 3rd; Thursday. More evidence that covid-19 never killed as many people as governments claimed: this time from Finland.
November 2nd; Wednesday. Article about an Italian bestselling book, just now translated into English. It suggests Pope Benedict, signalling in code like a kidnap victim in a ransom-demand video, claims to still be Pope, and the legitimate Pope.

November 1st; Tuesday. All Saints' Day. Or 'Day of the Dead', as they call it here.
