Oliver is a sound guy

I wasn’t a fan of his history progs etc but I do find a > 90% agreement with him on many issues since he landed at GB news

Especially on Covid

We the people have, throughout history, been subject to physical and financial assault with propaganda to make us fearful, to coerce us to submit. From the primitive tribal leaders to modern governments, this has been the case. Authoritarian rule has been and presently is the most common form of goverance.

Only in recent human history has the common man had some representation to wield the levers of power. The elitists are trying to eliminate that, it’s competition. They have corrupted most of the institutions that have given the common man some little bit of independance from under the boot of the elite.

We greatly outnumber them so they are scared of uprisings that would dilute their power. They will, no doubt, even use the uprisings to deflect their culpability onto the poor, cold, and hungry masses that are just trying to save what little human progress we’ve managed to procure over the past few centuries.

That Neil Oliver makes statements that should occur to every sentient being and is somehow viewed as a novel viewpoint, is disturbing.
We are on the knife’s edge.
There will be chaos ahead.
We should prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

I think the majority of people would prefer food and shelter then living in a cardboard box cold and hungry so, yes we outnumber them.

Ignorance of the problem is the biggest enemy. We just have to educate more people to the coming crisis before it is not repairable.
If we wait for the coming price increases and shortages to educate the masses, there will be problems.

I didn’t think his history stuff was that bad, or at least the stuff I have watched.

A fair bit of padding, but aimed at people who can’t tell their pike from their spear.

If there was any major flaw with his Trench TV series I would say was the format itself relied a lot on the hope they would dig up something interesting.

If I remember correctly he dislikes being formally referred to as a ‘historian’ and sees himself as instead someone who is just really interested in studying it.

He is the type who clearly believes that just because something is/was/will be ‘socially wrong’ doesn’t mean it never happened.

But yeah, he is very good on GB News.

I enjoyed what little of him I did watch as he did bring the ‘boring’ subject of history to life in a way that would have interested my as a schoolboy growing up in Scotland.

I hated history at school. Teachers reciting tedious stories of dates and people. Then I was given a copy of ‘1066 and all that’, the more fun side of the subject.

I imagined Neil as a typical left winger when I watched his shows and was delightfully surprised that his education firmly convinced him that life was worth living, freedom is essential, and that we all have the ability to contribute.

Lay the blame with the Club of Rome.
They are a club of world of elites who believe our planet earth can only support 1 billion people .
They believe that the human population should be restricted but they are not volunteering to depart this earth as they believe that they are much to important .
They also push the false climate change scare as a way to restrict growth but if leaders and politicians around the world don’t wake up soon food shortages and poverty will become the norm in many countries .

The Club of Rome was the 1970’s version of this phenomenon. They had models about how we were definitely going to run out of everything.
They were distinguished “scientists” with great pedigrees. It was translated into dozens of languages and millions of copies were distributed. The fine art of fear mongering was never more refined.
Nobody paid any attention when ALL their predictions proved to be farcically wrong.
“Science-based” fear mongering began with Malthus. He was wrong, nobody noticed.
Paul Ehrlich, a butterfly expert, followed the Malthus theory and got fame and fortune by proposing the most outrageous doomsday scenarios. NONE of them panned out. They were all ridiculous, but he was never held to account.
“Climate change” is the same garbage in new clothing. When you hear the word “sustainability” bandied about, know you are hearing the same Malthusian baloney.

I was in my pharmacy today and the druggist asked if I’d had my 4th Covid-19 shot. I explained that I was happier being unvaxxed and alive rather than the alternative.

Yesterday my nice old neighbor told me his daughter, in her 40’s, just died of Covid-19. I expressed my condolences but then said, “She probably died from the vaccine, not the virus.” There are strong reasons for this conclusion.

Since the end of the pandemic there has been a remarkable and unexplained increase in excess mortality in the UK, and probably elsewhere as well.

It’s not unexplained.  It comes from deaths by stroke and heart attack.
Ambulances have a target of getting the patient to hospital in 13 minutes from the 999 call.  But because of the loss of staff and a decade of austerity the time rose to almost an hour for the last few months.
Heart attacks and strokes increase in lethality when treatment is delayed by three quarters of an hour.

Did Lockdowns Cause Increased Mortality Rates?
BY JOSEPH MERCOLA SEPTEMBER 2, 2022 
[excerpt]
Emerging statistics paint an alarming picture – far more have died after the rollout of this ‘super potion’ than during the height of the COVID pandemic in 2020. Yet the mainstream media are desperately trying to divert your attention from this elephant in the room.
STORY AT-A-GLANCE
·        Emerging statistics on excess mortality rates paint an alarming picture. Far more people died in 2021, after the rollout of the COVID shots, and in 2022, than during the height of the COVID pandemic in 2020
·        Mainstream media are trying to divert your attention from the elephant in the room — mass injection with experimental gene transfer technology — to anything and everything but that
·        The Telegraph blames the unexplained excess deaths on lockdown effects. Many didn’t have access to routine medical care during lockdowns, and are now dying from chronic diseases that went untreated
·        U.K. Office for National Statistics (ONS) data released August 16, 2022, show excess deaths in England and Wales were, as of August 5, 14.4% higher than the five-year average, which works out to 1,350 more deaths per week than normal. A majority of these excess deaths were cardiovascular in nature — a primary adverse effect of the COVID jabs
·        In the U.S., we lost 349,000 younger Americans to something besides COVID and non-natural death between April 3, 2021 and August 13, 2022, and that’s not counting the tens of thousands of death records that the CDC has inexplicably deleted. As much as 15% to 25% of the death reports that could indicate a COVID jab death are missing. Other data show that during the fall of 2021, Millennials, aged 25 to 44, had an 84% increase in excess deaths
Emerging statistics on excess mortality rates paint an alarming picture. Far more people died in 2021, after the rollout of the COVID shots, and in 2022, than during the height of the COVID pandemic in 2020. I will review some of those shocking statistics — which are mirrored around the world — in a moment.
But while rational people look at these figures and ask themselves what the most apparent and likely cause behind this sudden rise in deaths of working-age adults and younger people might be, mainstream media are trying to divert your attention from the elephant in the room — mass injection with experimental gene transfer technology — to anything and everything but that.

IMPORTANT!

Background Information

I independently recognized that the Covid-19 total lockdowns were technically wrong in February2020 and published on 21Mar2020 on this website, as follows:

March 21, 2020
LET’S CONSIDER AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH: Isolate people over sixty-five and those with poor immune systems and return to business-as-usual for people under sixty-five. This will allow “herd immunity” to develop much sooner and older people will thus be more protected AND THE ECONOMY WON’T CRASH.
 
The next day I published as follows:
 
March 22, 2020
This full-lockdown scenario is especially hurting service sector businesses and their minimum-wage employees – young people are telling me they are “financially under the bus”. The young are being destroyed to protect us over-65’s. A far better solution is to get them back to work and let us oldies keep our distance, and get “herd immunity” established ASAP – in months not years. Then we will all be safe again.…

The Great Barrington Declaration, published by eminent epidemiologists six months later on October 5, 2020, stated essentially the same conclusion as my March 21&22, 2020 statements.

Shocking Interview Reveals Deep State Power:  “We run the government. President Trump runs nothing.”

The following is a shocking interview with Canadian epidemiologist Dr Paul Alexander. In my 5000+ hours of Covid-19 research I have found Dr Alexander to be highly credible, and I believe this story. The depth of corruption and abuse of power by the Deep State is total.

America, we have a problem – you’ve lost control of your country to interests that are hostile to you. Canada is long-gone.

TRUMP COVID OFFICIAL RELATES SHOCKING SAGA OF EXPERIENCE IN DC, PROFOUND CORRUPTION OF ‘DEEP STATE’
‘President Trump has no power. He can’t tell us in the bureaucracy what to do. He has none. This president has no power. None. Zero,’ Dr. Paul Alexander said he was told. ‘We run the government. President Trump runs nothing.’
Mon Sep 5, 2022

A recent interview with a former senior pandemic advisor to the Trump administration provides a glimpse into a “deep state” apparatus which, with its extended arm of the mainstream media, wages war on the American people through institutionalized lies, and the ruthless destruction of individuals who stand in their way.

Dr. Paul Alexander, an epidemiologist with expertise in evidence-based medicine, was recruited in April 2020 from his role as a pandemic advisor for the World Health Organization (WHO), to assist the Trump administration in navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.

September 8, 2022 12:18 am

I emailed the following to the Alberta government and other politicians and media on 8January2021. My warning was in sufficient time to stop the carnage!
The Covid-19 vaccine developments were rushed and are not proven safe or effective and should NOT be taken, especially by the low-risk population – those under-65 or recovered from Covid-19. The two experimental Covid-19 vaccines that contain mRNA (Pfizer and Moderna) are especially risky – due to unknown future side-effects, the risk-to-reward is far too high for the low-risk group.” 

I could not have been more clear – and I only publish when I am certain. See CorrectPredictions.ca
 
These dead physicians are a small part of the total – there are much greater numbers of dead and vaccine-injured citizens from all careers, and that total is growing every day and will accelerate as more people take more toxic Covid-19 “vaccines”. The numbers of vaccine-caused dead and injured will exceed those lost in our foreign wars – our corrupt governments and health authorities cannot hide this truth and perpetuate this disaster any longer.

32 YOUNG CANADIAN DOCTORS “DIED SUDDENLY” IN THE PAST 16 MONTHS WHILE FULLY COVID-19 VACCINATED!

3Sep2022
https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/14.0.0/svg/1f4a5.svg I have now tracked 32 Canadian doctor sudden deaths (thank you to all who contributed). These doctors were actively practicing medicine & were healthy prior to taking illegally mandated COVID-19 Vaccines (2, 3 or 4 doses). I’ve sent a letter to Canadian Medical Association (CMA) Presidents Dr. Alika Lafontaine & Dr. Katharine Smart, both of whom supported COVID-19 Vaccine mandates on all of Canada’s 92,000 doctors and I urged them to call for IMMEDIATE termination of all COVID-19 Vaccine mandates in Canada’s healthcare, as well as Investigations & Public Inquiries into these sudden deaths. 
CMA cannot continue to ignore this catastrophe.

Any ‘deplorables’ that did survive the arrogant, evil, destructive actions of the elites will be in no mood to take care of the GEBs who hate them, and instead will concentrate on the survival of their family and friends.

Those with useless degrees and life skills will be the first “useless eaters” to succumb to their evil practices. Oddly enough, they are probably supporters of the green lunacy.

It’s ‘tough guys’ willing to defend nations against other ‘tough guys’ that allows you the freedom of expression to sneer at those ‘tough guys’.

But you can’t muster the intellectual courage to dare understand the first thing about tough guys and their motivation to defend weaklings like you who sneer at them.

I totally agree. Every word rings true to me. Malthusian ideology dominates academia as if it were the obvious truth when it has no empirical basis over 200 year later. It is a pernicious ideology which rejects empirical scientific method in favor of “models” and anecdotes carefully selected to “prove” the necessity of panicky measures.

I am also an academic, but the evolution in thinking that I see in academia and ‘liberal’ politics is in the wrong direction, supposedly smart people with PhD degrees in scientific fields, swooning over the models and the oh so dangerous CO2 emissions (they are not). My PhD is in social psychology from Boston U.
but we took our scientific methodology very seriously there as they did at U Michigan’s ISR where I was later a Program Director. One of my colleagues there happened to be an author of the Club of Rome report, Don Michael. Don never did any research that I could see, but he was forever writing letters to the Times and scaring colleagues about the inevitable doomsday to come. My 2011 book, “Acceleration: The Forces Driving Human Progress” took a reasoned approach to the future, I thought, but it never took off, I suspect because my view of the future did not follow the dismal script. Futurists generally are devout Malthusians. Ultimately, humans are BAD for Gaia and that is the “consensus.”

Any education of the very young that is not “optimisitic” in outlook is simply unforgivable and self destructive. Youth under maybe 18 are simply sponges for what they are taught. So the problem in our modern age is that “we” know more and more how much of a “horrorshow” history has been. How and when do you teach this history? Who gets to interpret it? It seems self destructive right now, at least in the “West.” Youth of today aren’t even taught what a “dream” world they live in compared to the past, and the unimagined potenials opening up. We need new “myths.”

The one good thing about indoctrinating the very young is that when they become teenagers they inevitably rebel to one extent or another.

Our very young children going through this right now will ask questions about what they have been instructed in school. We all did it, we should have some faith in todays children to seek out the truth just as we did.

I think whatever they are taught is pretty much “indoctrination.” How do we teach them the least objectionable indoctrination? It used to be our culture, religion, our values, but those are almost universally trashed by the current intelligentsia.

Ironic that the generation that grew up the most insulated from the natural world has grown up to be the generation fighting to save the world from climate change . But then again climate change is just another word for Nature

Oh dear, I feel rather nauseous. I really do.

So what we have here is someone who:

  • Cares for The Children more than anyone else
  • Cares for The Environment more that anyone else
  • Accuses everyone else of being ‘bad’ in a not alarmism way to how they accuse him of being bad.

IOW: The Creature he sees in the mirror is THE most important creature that ever existed.
Fine, who doesn’t do all those things?

But primarily and why I feel ‘not so well’ after watching/listening is that he is, as we see so often around here, A Minutia Miner
i.e. He lists all sorts of ‘things that happen’ but never any word about why they happen

And there in is The Problem that now engulfs all of science/education and politics
Perfectly not any scintilla of Original Thought, No New Ideas, No Olive Branches, No Offers of Common Ground.
He is angry and adversarial all the way through.

People, there are folks in this world, very great numbers of them, with vast experience of that behaviour and those sorts of words.
They are called ‘Girls’

The3y talk to lawyers about ‘Unreasonable Behaviour and that, for the most part, is where all the babies have gone. It is why, as he alludes, vast numbers of children are now not being born.

Worse still though, is that even from before they are born, kids are extremely sensitive to what is going on around them, and their mothers.
And that programs up their genetics – even from before birth,

Once the child is born, the girls try to limit the damage by dumping the father and going looking for another, especially a one with a Good Sense Of Humour.

Which exactly what this guy lacks. Completely lacks.

Compare him to Jordan Petersen or similarly, compare Boris Johnson to Donald Trump.
Chalk and Cheese.

He offers no new ideas, no possible solutions and is nothing more than a Rabble Rouser, fixated on minutia, trivia and irrelevance.
This World needs folks like him as any of us need a hole in the head.

In a crazy moment inside my head, I confused the words ‘Neil Oliver’ with ‘Soil Erosion’ – tell me you can see it.

What we need are folks can see clearly what is going wrong, why it is going wrong and thus, see a way to fix it.

What is that you say…..
>Look at the price of wheat.
OK, Ukraine was a large exporter and that is now stopped BUT, of ‘only’ of 25Million tonnes pa.
The Gullible and Easily Impressed will say ‘Wow, that’s a lot

If it dropped on your foot it might hurt but, out of an annual global production/consumption of 800 Million tonnes, it is next-to-nothing
Soooooo, why has the World Price of Wheat doubled since Ukraine kicked off?
Why is that? What is going on?

What is going on is that, contrary to Mr Olviler here and many others, We Are Starving.

What is a single grain of wheat, by the time it’s been de-husked and cooked, if nothing more than a grain of (Glucose) sugar

Glucose = the very very very basis of every food chain on this Earth. THE most primary and basic element of food there could be, probably anywhere in the entire universe.

And here we are (Ukraine) fighting over those grains of sugar.
Us humans, supposedly at The Very Top of The Food Chain and we are fighting over grains of sugar

Somebody please sort this pronto – it is not going to end well

We are having a BEAUTIFUL, warm, Labor Day weekend here in N.CA. The kind of long warm vacation weekend I loved as a child. We would be out camping, hiking, and soaking in the sun. A glorious end to summer.

But that’s NOT how our beautiful CA weather is being “sold” to the public. Nope. According to EVERY media outlet … this is EXTREME weather!!! … a super-hot heatwave that will surely KILL you as DEAD as COVID (speaking of false narratives). It might even get to be 100 deg.F!!!! Ohhhhhhhh mommaaaaaa!!! Numerous government entities have CLOSED the Parks and Trails. “Too Hot” … “Too dangerous”. So now we have “proof” of Global Warming, Right? Government has even had to shut down the Parks … because of global warming … SMH.

Yes, what does this INSANE hysteric hyperbole over BEAUTIFUL weather do to the psyche of our children? It can’t be good. I am reveling in this weather. It’s gloriously good! It’s why I suffer the cost and indignity to live in this hardcore leftist State. But this NORMAL weather is being hyped as “dangerous” and to be feared. Yes, our children’s minds are being bent. Bent to fear. Bent to depression. These “green” LIES are crimes against humanity.

Frightening a child is child abuse and needs to be declared as such in a court of law. A legal precedent needs to be set.

Absolutely spot on. A breath of fresh air on the UK’s Airwaves. He has made several other highly rational statements since GB News started just over a year ago.

and its been 50 yrs of it already and its worse now
I date my climateconmen abuse from 1972, 1st yr high onwards
and would cheerfully pound the daylights out of every teacher and “invitee” to our highschools who quite honestly ruined the best years of my life, with fear and utter lies about too many of us dont have kids routines
