Jordan Peterson interviews Robert F. Kennedy jr.

The "rogue" Democratic candidate

Video here. (1 h 35 min)

Noteworthy points from Kennedy’s statements in the interview:

In the US, 70% of all newsshow adverts are from the pharmaceutical industry.

The pharma industry is a “criminal enterprise”. The 4 principal companies (he mentioned Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck and another one I didn’t catch) have collectively paid $35 bn dollars in criminal damages and penalties over the past decade. For lying to doctors, defrauding regulators, falsifying science and killing hundreds of thousands of people.

Pharmaceutical drugs are the 3rd largest cause of death in the US after cancer and heart failure.

Medical journals have become vessels of the pharma industry. The Cochrane charitable organisation has been an important counter-balance to this situation. [They recently debunked the myth that masks help prevent covid.] However, Bill Gates has recently started funnelling money into them, so he’s probably going to undermine them.

Kennedy thinks he has a chance as a Democratic candidate for presidency because polls show he would fare better against Trump than Biden would. However, the trick is to get this information out to the public, because the elite that control the legacy media certainly don’t want Kennedy to win (nor do they want Trump to win).

Biden won’t want to debate. Neither will Trump on the Republican side. So Podcasts and other alternative media are the way forward.

JP has this question: The Right knows where its “pathological” limits on the fringe are, and that is e.g. Holocaust-denial, racism etc. The Left does not seem to know an equivalent limit. Where does Kennedy see the limit of politics that can be countenanced?

Kennedy side-steps the answer (a bit of a red flag for me), he says he’d rather think about building bridges than disassociating himself.

JP clarifies that he thinks the left-wing idea of “equity” (equality of outcome) is pathological.

On the subject of climate warming, Kennedy says he definitely believes its happening and that man-made CO2 and methane are significant culprits. However, he is strictly against fearmongering and top-down, tyrannical solutions. He would remove all subsidies for energy and “use the free market”.

He exudes some naivete when he says that once the wind and solar farms are set up they will deliver free energy, all that is missing is a proper grid. I think he’s surprisingly wrong here. Solar panels will have to be replaced from time to time, as will wind turbines (and both will become hazardous waste).

However, interestingly he says that he is an environmentalist not out of fear for the future but out of love for nature (that chimes with me a lot).

Regarding Ukraine he says we have trapped the Ukrainians in a supposedly humanitarian mission. All we are doing is extending the war, therefore shovelling money into the US military-industrial complex.

The Covid Deception: The Dire Consequences of the Lack of Accountability

Only accountability can rescue freedom from tyranny.

Paul Craig Roberts summarises the current situation.

Excerpts (my emphases):

Reiner Fuellmich, who has been investigating together with thousands of attorneys and scientists assembled in the German Corona Investigative Committee the toxicity of the vaccine, has collected enormous evidence that the vaccine is toxic.  The puzzle has been why some suffered death or injury and others did not.  The answer is the inconsistency of the vaccine batches.  Experts, such as former Pfizer vice president and chief science officer Dr. Michael Yeadon and former head of the Health Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Dr. Wolfgang Wodran, have concluded that “criminal acts are being committed” and that “a big crime is so obvious.”

You can read the report here, I encourage you to do so.  I am now going to turn to its implications.

We know for a fact that the “Covid pandemic” was a fear-driven orchestration, and that no aspect of the treatment protocol was effective or made any sense.  The masks do not protect. The lockdowns did more harm than good. Human rights were violated by coerced mandated involuntary vaccinations with a substance untested and put into use under an emergency authorization that required that there were no known treatments or cures.

The emergency use requirement meant that known cures successfully used in other countries, such as Brazil and India, had to be denied and prohibited from use in the US and other parts of the Western world.  US public health authorities and the presstitutes lied through their teeth that Ivermectin and HCQ were dangerous and unapproved drugs.  Ivermectin was said to be a horse medicine dangerous to humans.  In actual fact both drugs had long been approved for human use and had many decades of use and perfect safety records.  Ivermectin is routinely taken as a preventative of river blindness in those parts of Africa where the parasite is prevalent, and HCQ has long been used as a preventative of malaria.


Remember also that hospitals were incentivized to maximize Covid deaths as they were paid some $39,000 for each Covid death.  Consequently, nearly all deaths were reported as Covid deaths, even motorcycle accidents, thus maximizing the reported Covid death rate and driving people to vaccination.  

Remember, the PCR test used to diagnose Covid was said by the test’s inventor to be incapable of diagnosing Covid.  The PCR test produced up to 97% false positives, thus immensely exaggerating the pandemic.

Remember too, that the original explanation for Covid was infected bat meat sold in a Chinese market.  We now know for a fact that Covid was an engineered virus and that the “gain-of-function” aspect, which made if contagious, was financed by NIH at the University of North Carolina and when criticism arose due to concerns it violated the Biowarfare Convention, the funding was moved to Wuhan in China.  Remember also, that initially DARPA was involved in the manufacture of the virus.

The new story is that the virus escaped from the Wuhan lab, but more alert people believe the Covid virus was intentionally released.

There are many independent scientists with no Big Pharma conflicts of interest who regard the “vaccine” as not only more deadly than Covid but also as a bioweapon.  Clearly, the fact now revealed that 5% of the doses account for the adverse effects implies motive and intention.  This must be investigated by independent scientists and organizations.  It is difficult to expect Congress, as dependent as its members are on Big Pharma campaign funds, and the regulatory public health agencies, FDA, NIH, CDC, agencies that are revolving door Big Pharma marketing agents, to honestly investigate the “Covid pandemic” and the toxic batches of the vaccine.

If there is no investigation and no accountability, you can expect worse orchestrated pandemics in the near future.  There are indications that the US has been experimenting with weaponizing ebola, and within the past two years I reported that vials of deadly smallpox had twice been discovered lying about on counters instead of being under lock and key.


Bioweapon research is Satanic and contrary to the Biowarfare Convention. That the US continues this illegal research is a danger to every American and to the entire world.  Moreover, it shows a reckless unconcern on the part of the US government and its scientists for law and life.  

Government agencies that operate secretly outside the law can lie forever to Congress and can invoke “national security,” a holy cow for Congress, and escape accountability.  We are currently watching the FBI and DOJ continue their protection of Joe and Hunter Biden while pursuing President Trump with false charges.  

Nuclear war is a real possibility.  The neoconservatives’ hostility toward all countries capable of serving as constraints on US unilateralism, together with the Kremlin’s endless tolerance of provocations, are leading to nuclear war.

We face equal risk of extermination from the US government’s weaponization of deadly viruses.  This work continues unobstructed and justified with every kind of false argument.  “Our enemies are doing it, so we must also in order to protect ourself.”  Or as Fauci, Gates, and others claim, we have to make deadly viruses in order to study them so we can be able to preempt them with vaccines.

These arguments are false.  Moreover, the consequences for humanity and all life of nuclear war and bioweapons are so horrific that it makes the pursuit of peace the ultimate of all goals.  But Washington is pursuing hegemony, which is a guarantee of war.

The danger of our situation cannot be exaggerated.  Only accountability for the orchestrated Covid pandemic can re-establish human life as more important than Big Pharma’s profits and rescue freedom from tyranny.

Beware Perfidious Albion as Britain Takes Lead Role in War Provocation

Perhaps more dangerous than a dying imperial power is a dying imperial side-kick flunky

Writes Finian Cunningham:

For the most part of the past century, the failed British empire was assigned the junior role as the butler to service the needs of the American empire. This special relationship involved London giving political and diplomatic cover for its American boss, as well as military services when required for one dirty war or another.

It is axiomatic that a dying empire is a dangerous beast, liable to lash out to salvage its waning power. The American empire has reached its death throes moment. But perhaps more dangerous than a dying imperial power is a dying imperial side-kick flunky.

Today, Britain is a broken-down impoverished de-industrialized wasteland whose shocking numbers of poor are like an army of living dead. It has long ago lost former colonies to parasite off. But there is one former colony – the United States – that might just be stupid enough to allow Perfidious Albion to manipulate a catastrophic war.

The tensions over the NATO proxy war in Ukraine with Russia are a powder-keg situation. And the British dirty-tricks brigade are the past masters that merit being closely watched.

Is the collective West nearing the end of a cycle?

Or are we still in mid-cycle? And could it be an epochal point of inflection?

Writes Alastair Crooke:

The levelling project being essentially nihilistic becomes captured by the destructive side of the revolution – its authors so absorbed with dismantling structures that they do not attend to the need to think policies through, before launching into them. The latter are not adept at doing politics: at making politics ‘work’.

(Interenstingly, this applies not only to foreign policy, such as Ukraine and Taiwan, but also to Covid and climate change policies.)

Thus, discontent at the welling string of western foreign policy flops grows. Crises multiply, both in number and across different societal dimensions. Perhaps, we are closening to a point of beginning to move through the cycle – toward disillusionment, retrenchment, and stabilization; the prerequisite step to catharsis and ultimate renewal. Yet, it would be a mistake to underestimate the longevity and tenacity of the western revolutionary impulse.

“The revolution does not operate as an explicit political movement. It operates laterally through the bureaucracy and it filters its revolutionary language through the language of the therapeutic, the language of the pedagogical, or the language of the corporate HR department”, Professor Furedi writes. “And then, it establishes power anti-democratically, bypassing the democratic structure: using this manipulative and soft language – to continue the revolution from within the institutions.”

The connection between supporting Ukraine and supporting standard Covid measures

General thoughtlessness

Tom Woods writes in a recent e-mail newsletter: “This will lose me subscribers.”

He continues:

But if I censored myself instead of saying something that might be unpopular, I wouldn’t be worth a whole lot.

So, here goes.

“I stand with Ukraine,” everyone said in unison in February 2022.

They hadn’t said, “I stand with Yemen,” where the greatest humanitarian disaster in the world had been taking place, because the people they allow to form their opinions for them hadn’t particularly wanted them to, and they themselves didn’t bother to find out about it.

But when all the powerful people demand they say something? Doggone it, whatever it is, they’ll say it!

Polling data shows a close correlation between people’s opinions on Ukraine and their opinions on Covid, even though the two issues have nothing to do with each other.

Except one thing.

In both cases, the official opinion molders took one side, and dissident voices were portrayed as evil.

And human beings are readily tempted into going along with whatever the influential and powerful say and do. (If you went to high school, you will recognize this phenomenon.)

In short, there are tens of millions of Americans who, whatever they’ve been told to say when confronted with dissident arguments, will say it.

The result is that we live in an unserious society, in which it is impossible to discuss anything important. Challenge any aspect of the CIA’s perspective on Russia and Ukraine and you’re a “Putin lover” or you’re repeating “Russian talking points” – or, worse still, the dreaded “Russian disinformation.”

On the Tom Woods Show I spoke in 2022 to Pierre Kory, a physician who was aghast at the official Covid response – which, as you know, was almost defiantly unscientific and self-contradictory. He couldn’t believe the utter lack of curiosity among his colleagues.

Well, that episode in history did something to him. He realized: if the New York Times publishes scientific nonsense in a subject area where I’m an expert and can recognize it, in what other areas, where I am not an expert, has it been misleading me?

So he further concluded: I’m not changing my social media avatar to whatever the symbol of The Current Thing is ever again, unless I see overwhelming evidence that The Current Thing is legitimate. I refuse to be a lemming. I have too much self-respect for that.

I think a lot of us have reached that point.

It’s of course not metaphysically impossible that the American establishment – a group of profoundly unimpressive people – could get something right. It’s just highly, highly unlikely. And I’m likewise not saying that no one could have an honorable disagreement with me on this issue.

What I am saying is, the treatment of the issue has been cartoonish, and Americans could stand to hear a bit more context.

Hence today I am releasing this free eBook: “Your Facebook Friends Are Wrong About Ukraine

The purpose of this book is not to be contrarian for the sake of contrarianism – every once in a great while, in spite of themselves, the establishment manages to get something right, though usually for the wrong reasons.

Instead, its purpose is to remind people of a lesson that Americans in particular need to learn: history did not begin five minutes ago.

Now if your attitude is that the American government is awesome and the only reason anyone around the world might dislike it is that they’re jealous of our awesomeness, then the arguments in this book will not find fertile ground.

A lot of conservatives have been tricked into thinking this kind of vulgarity is the correct conservative position, although many of them are thankfully beginning to see through that.

Our ruling class, which is bipartisan – the uniparty, some call it – has been extremely cavalier in its words and actions under circumstances in which a wrong move could mean the end of the world.

I don’t think it’s a Russian talking point to call the end of the world a bad thing.

China Declares War On The United States

In cool, calm terms, the ancient country has thrown down the gauntlet to the big bully

Gonzalo Lira points out in a 10-minute video how China, four days ago, basically declared war on the USA.

Today, practically all the Western media was rah-rahing for more and deadlier weapons for the perfectly pure and saintly Ukrainians (whose government’s corruption rank prior to the invasion one year ago was hardly better than Russia’s) in order to defeat the perfectly and purely evil Russians.

Consequently, the Abbey of the city I live in hoisted the Ukrainian flag today on its tower (for the first time since some weeks after the invasion). Rendering to Caesar . . .

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Eurasian landmass, the second largest boy in the classroom, who himself is no angel, has now decided to properly stand up to the biggest bully of all. And the above mentioned media has basically ignored this momentous event.

In a paper titled “US Hegemony and Its Perils” the Chinese government, on the website of its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, details with ice-cold precision what everyone with a brain knows to be true, but what most prefer not to talk about.

China, a country conscious of its 5,000-year-old culture, is throwing down the gauntlet. Let’s hope the heirs of Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War will heed the famous general’s advice: “Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”

The Chinese are about to prove whether they are worthy of their ancestral sage. We will see.

How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline

Seymour Hersh's report

“The New York Times called it a “mystery,” but the United States executed a covert sea operation that was kept secret—until now“.

Most of the media say “one anonymous source” is not enough proof.

Correct. So, when are they going to start doing their job and looking for more – or to find indications that refute the above claim?

Here‘s Tucker Carlson on the whole thing.

Update (10/02/2023):

Independent Evidence Video Confirms Key Part of Sy Hersh’s Report on the Attack on Nord Stream 2

Update (13/02/2023): Tom Luongo calls Hersh a “useful idiot” who is “advancing what is clearly only half the story”. He points out that Hersh mentions the US and Norway as culprits, but never mentions the UK: “This pathological need to absolve the UK of any involvement in the Nordstream bombings and setting the world on a course for total infrastructural war, like Russia is now doing in Ukraine, borders on creepy.”

Luongo’s conclusion:

I could spin out a host of possible Act IIIs here:

  • quid pro quo between sovereigntist US forces and NATO to keep the UK and Poland out of the story to scapegoat “Biden” and begin cleaning up the State Department of the Nulandistas and British Intelligence influences to begin winding down the war in Ukraine This is my preferred story.
  • Further put the US and Russia on a collision course by having a journalist of Sy Hersh’s reputation confirm what everyone wants to believe, the US is a rogue state. This further degrades the US’s reputation and hastening the collapse of the US (Soros’ openly stated goal) on the eve of the Munich Security Conference (next week).
  • Leave Putin with even fewer domestically-palatable political options at home other than further escalation pushing the world closer to the brink of nuclear war to effect Davos’ Great Reset

To name a few.

But what’s really clear here is that there are no Ethan Hunts or even Jason Bournes out there to swoop in at the last second and stop this runaway train of evolution through catastrophe from going off the cliff and going boom.

Update (14/02/2023):

Edward Snowden Says UFO Hysteria Is “Engineered” Distraction From Nord Stream Pipeline Bombshell

Update (15/02/2023):

Pepe Escobar has some interesting things to say about this (“The Plot Thickens“):

The Special Military Operation (SMO) was launched on February 24, almost a year ago. The Nord Stream 1 and 2 blow up happened on September 26. Hersh assures there were “more than nine months of highly secret back and forth debate inside Washington’s national security community about how to ‘sabotage the pipelines’”.

So that confirms that the terror attack planning preceded, by months, not only the SMO but, crucially, the letters sent by Moscow to Washington on December 2022, requesting a serious discussion on “indivisibility of security” involving NATO, Russia and the post-Soviet space. The request was met by a dismissive American non-response response.

While he was writing the story of a terror response to a serious geopolitical issue, it does raise eyebrows that a first-rate pro like Hersh does not even bother to examine the complex geopolitical background.

In a nutshell: the ultimate Mackinderian anathema for the U.S. ruling classes – and that’s bipartisan – is a Germany-Russia alliance, extended to China: that would mean the U.S. expelled from Eurasia, and that conditions everything any American government thinks and does in terms of NATO and Russia.

Hersh should also have noticed that the timing of the preparation to “sabotage the pipelines” completely blows apart the official United States government narrative, according to which this a collective West effort to help Ukraine against “unprovoked Russian aggression”.


What everyone already knew by then – as the record shows even on YouTube – is that the combo behind “Biden” were dead set on terminating the Nord Streams by whatever means necessary. After the start of the SMO, the only thing missing was to find a mechanism for plausible deniability.

Stuff you should know about Ukraine

Setting the record straight

On February 16, 2022, a full week before Putin sent combat troops into Ukraine, the Ukrainian Army began the heavy bombardment of the area (in east Ukraine) occupied by mainly ethnic Russians. Officials from the Observer Mission of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) were located in the vicinity at the time and kept a record of the shelling as it took place. What the OSCE discovered was that the bombardment dramatically intensified as the week went on until it reached a peak on February 19, when a total of 2,026 artillery strikes were recorded. Keep in mind, the Ukrainian Army was, in fact, shelling civilian areas along the Line of Contact that were occupied by other Ukrainians.

We want to emphasize that the officials from the OSCE were operating in their professional capacity gathering first-hand evidence of shelling in the area. What their data shows is that Ukrainian Forces were bombing and killing their own people. This has all been documented and has not been challenged.

So, the question we must all ask ourselves is this: Is the bombardment and slaughter of one’s own people an ‘act of war’?

Ukraine: German Tank Controversy

It's about curtailing German influence in Europe and beyond

Says the blogger Eugyppius:

This war is about Russia primarily, and about Germany only secondarily. It’s an attempt of the Global American Empire to hem in Russia via an extended proxy campaign. In the longer term, this effort will require that Europe remain an American outpost, as it was during the Cold War, and this means the economic and political influence of Germany must be sharply curtailed. America – and not Germany – must dominate the Continent. The Scholz government have gone very far in making concessions to the Americans, but they appear to have finally drawn a line of sorts, at giving the Americans a pretence to sell their tanks in Europe. It will be important to see whether they can hold out.
