The Great Reset – The real story behind Build Back Better

A couple of days ago “the Great Reset”, an initiative coming from the World Economic Forum, was trending on Twitter.

I doubt they were pleased, because it was mostly people saying that it’s a plan for: “totalitarian rule by a global, technocratic elite”.

All those people using the slogan “Build Back Better” are in on it, they say. Although those memes are overstating the story for effect, there is a real and important struggle between a globalisation mindset and a localised one that people really should know about.

And the fact there’s such a loud backlash has itself become part of the story.

Let’s dive in, and see what it’s all about. Support this channel!

Claim: The USA’s Largest Radio Observatory is on the Verge of Structural Collapse

The Arecibo Observatory. By JidoBG – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, link

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

According to The Register, after two recent cable failures the 900 ton platform suspended above the gigantic Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico is literally hanging by a thread. Fraying has been observed in the other cables. Engineers are refusing to certify whether the remaining cables can hold the central platform.

America’s largest radio telescope close to collapse as engineers race to fix fraying cables

900-ton receiver platform threatens to plummet into dish below

The remaining cables supporting a 900-ton platform hanging over America’s largest radio telescope are struggling to take the load, threatening the 1,000-ft wide reflector dish.

The Arecibo Observatory instrument, located in a national forest in Puerto Rico, was the largest radio telescope of its kind in the world until 2016 when the Chinese built a bigger one. Now the US installation’s future hangs in the balance as engineers attempt to reinforce the structure after one of the cables holding up the overhead platform fell away and tore a 100-ft-long gash in the telescope’s dish below.

Some of the wires in the platform’s remaining cables are already fraying, and if they snap, the structure holding the telescope’s receiver will come tumbling down with disastrous results, according to the University of Central Florida, which operates the observatory.

The University of Central Florida received a record $204 million in grants this year. Lets all hope the university’s Radio Astronomy group convince administrators to give them a little love in time to save their telescope.

Big Tech is a censorship cartel — tracking you across the internet and sharing it with each other

Whistleblowers reveal just how well coordinated Big Tech collusion is at the Senate Judiciary Committee

Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley (a new Republican Senator) were on fire today at the Senate Committee hearing titled “Breaking the News: Censorship, Suppression, and the 2020 Election,” Insiders had leaked information about two programs of the most insidious kinds.

Facebook has a program called Centra, which tracks the pages people visit, the links, and not just in Facebook, but across the entire internet. (Tucker Carlson wonders, if it’s even legal). Mark Zuckerberg says he’s not familiar with it. Hawley grilled Zuckerberg. When pressed to say whether there is some program that can do that, Zuckerberg evades answering. Apparently, Centra is run in order to spot “coordinated inauthentic behaviour” or astroturfing.

The second program is called Tasks, and Twitter, Google and Facebook use it which helps them coordinate their censorship. That way they can exile people together. Handy, eh?

Zuckerberg said they are just checking in with their peers. Josh Hawley got Zuckerberg to admit under oath that Facebook does have tools to track users, across platforms and accounts, all without their knowledge. Hawley pushed Zuckerberg to say how many times this tool had been used against Americans.

Josh Hawley Tweets at @HawleyMO:Whistleblower says @Twitter and @Google routinely suggest censorship topics – hashtags, individuals, websites, many of them conservative – and @Facebook logs them for follow-up on Tasks. But Zuck REFUSES under oath to turn over list of @Twitter or @Google mentions on Tasks

Tucker Carlson wonders how is that different from what happens in China.

Ted Cruz grills Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter

This is worth watching. Cruz is relentless saying that Congress is effectively subsidizing Big Tech. They get a free pass through Section 230 — a special immunity from liability because they are defined as a platform, and not a publisher. Cruz drills down on the difference between a publisher and a platform.

Cruz: Was Twitter being a publisher when it censored the New York Post.

Dorsey: No. We have very clear policies on conduct on the platform. People choose to commit to our policies.

Cruz: Except your policies are applied in a partisan and selective manner. Did you block the release of Trumps tax material.

Dorsey tries to weasel out of the New York Post censorship by saying that they put a block on but then took it back when they realized they made an error. (Two weeks later!)

Cruz is savage on Dorsey and the idea that Twitter is not being a publisher.”. Twitter’s political position is that Voter fraud doesn’t exist.” At once point he baits Dorsey with quotes from President Carter and reports outcomes of legal cases asking whether Twitter would permit these or add a warning.

Dorsey claims he wants to embrace transparency. But Cruz wants to know how many times Twitter has blocked Republican and Democrat candidates in 2016, 2018, and 2020, and he wants the numbers in writing. Dorsey dodges the question, repeatedly, but Cruz keeps returning to it.

Excuses, excuses

Jack Dorsey says Twitter’s policies are designed to encourage “more speech”

Tom Parker, ReclaimTheNet:

Dorsey, throughout the hearing, claimed that Twitter’s controversial policies weed out abusive and misleading content from the platform, creating a safer space to express themselves, which according to him, promotes free speech. Yet, Dorsey didn’t address the danger in allowing Big Tech platforms to decide what is and what isn’t “misinformation” which is where the problem lies.

“What we saw and what the market told us was that people would not put up with abuse, harassment, and misleading information that would cause off-line harm and they would leave out service because of it. So our intention is to create clear policy, clear enforcement that enables people to feel that they can express themselves on our service and ultimately trust it,” said Dorsey.

“All of our policies are focused on encouraging more speech,” he went on to say.

Democrats wonder why Twitter lets conservatives speak at all

Chris Coons, US Senator for Delaware (D), wants even more censorship — specifically on climate change misinformation. He wonders why Jack Dorsey doesn’t have a policy on silencing climate skeptics.

DR. ROGER HODKINSON ON COVID: “THIS IS THE BIGGEST HOAX EVER PERPETRATED ON AN UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC”

 CAP ALLON

Dr. Roger Hodkinson is the former Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons committee in Ottawa, he was once CEO of a large private medical laboratory in Edmonton, Alberta, and for the past 20 years has held the position as Chairman of a Medical Biotechnology company based in North Carolina currently tasked with selling a COVID-19 test. He is a medical specialist in pathology, which includes virology, who trained at Cambridge University in the UK — he is perfectly positioned to speak on this topic.

In a recent Edmonton City Council Community and Public Services Committee meeting (the audio from which is currently gaining traction on YouTube), Dr. Hodkinson says: “The bottom line is there is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.

“[COVID-19] is nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game.”

Hodkinson goes on to stress that no action of any kind is needed, other than what happened during last year’s flu season: “If we felt ill, we stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny, we decided when we would return to work; we didn’t need anyone to tell us.”

“Mask are utterly useless”

“There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever.

“[Masks] are simply virtue signalling.

“Seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying, without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.”

“Social Distancing is also Useless”

“COVID is spread by aerosols, which travel 30 meters-or-so before landing.”

“Closures of Schools and Businesses have had such Terrible consequences”

“Everywhere should be open tomorrow, as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration (linked below).

44,000 Scientists, Public Health Experts, and Clinicians sign a Declaration that states Lockdowns don’t work


“Positive Test Results DO NOT mean a clinical Infection”

“All testing should stop, unless you’re presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem … it’s driving public hysteria, and all testing should stop.

“All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable.

“And I would remind you all that using the provinces [Alberta’s] own statistics, the risk of death under 65 is 1 in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this. The scale of the response … with no evidence for it, is utterly ridiculous.

“Suicides, business closures, [cancelled] funerals, weddings, etc., etc. — it’s simply outrageous, it’s just another bad flu, and [people] have got to get their minds around that.”

Hodkison concludes with some advice for policy makers in Alberta: “Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health in this province. I’m absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow. Thank you very much.”
