The World Needs a New Protocol for Global Travel

The Great Lockdown of 2020 was also a Great Reset. Thousands of entrepreneurs chose to become digital nomads, ditching San Francisco for Costa Rica and Boston for Bali. But for millions of professional expats, construction workers, and students, the arrow pointed in the opposite direction: They…… Read more...

How to manage Supply Chain during COVID-19

COVID-19 has exposed the inherent vulnerabilities in supply chains. With COVID-19, major parts of the world continue to impose social distancing and unpredictable lockdowns, leaving many organizations unable to decide on a reasonable course of action. Reason: today’s supply chains are extremely complex. Over the last few years, supply chains have been tailored to meet faster lead times, changing delivery expectations, a broader mix of products and services, new markets/locations, and a…… Read more...

WATCH: COVID19/11 – Robin Monotti

COVID19/11: Narratives Intertwined is OffG’s new series of short interviews with prominent voices in the alternate media, vocal Covid sceptics and leading figures in the 9/11 truth movement.

The series is intended to both mark the 20th anniversary of the World Trade Center collapse, and discuss how that event helped shape the modern world and, in turn, set the stage for the Covid “pandemic”.

The first episode features architect and prominent lockdown-sceptic Robin Monotti.

Robin discusses why he first began to doubt the official narrative on Covid, his “red pill moment” on 9/11, the importance of finding truly independent experts on all things, and more.


“It’s all for your own good”

TE Creus

One of the most annoying aspects of the current measures supposedly created “against the pandemic” that we have been subjected for almost two years now is the insistence that everything is done “for our own good”, as if governments and big companies were strict but caring parents, and we were just unruly or disobedient children who don’t really know what they need.

It brings to mind CS Lewis’ warning about that most oppressive of tyrannies, “a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims.”

Now, I cannot tell for sure if the vaccines, the lockdowns, the travel restrictions and the masks work or not.


Australia is going full Fascist …but resistance is growing

Kit Knightly

Covid19 has been used as an excuse to increase government control of pretty much everything, pretty much everywhere.

It is, without question, the greatest campaign to seize power, and greatest assault on personal freedom, of my lifetime. With countries seemingly in a contest to outdo each other’s clampdowns, lockdowns, quarantines and surveillance programs.

From the beginning of the “pandemic” three countries, in particular, have set the pace on this – Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Since last spring these three have been one-upping each other in a race to the fascist finish line. And right now, Australia is putting a sprint in to pull away from the pack.


What Went Wrong with Pandemic Modeling?

  • Examples of the worst models built during the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Reasons why pandemic modeling is fraught with issues.
  • Some successful models may offer hope for the future.

Covid-19 forecasting efforts fell apart at the seams, despite experienced modelers, sophisticated tools, and the best of intentions.  Conflicting models throughout the pandemic led to mixed messages, Draconian lockdowns, and ineffective containment measures.  While pandemic modeling got off to a faltering start, some of the newer models provide hope going forward.

Examples of the Worst Models

Perhaps the most famous examples of bad models include one from the White House that heralded the immediate end of the pandemic (along with a nation of walking dead), and one from the Imperial College of London that over-estimated deaths threefold.


Are Your Electronics Protected Against Sudden Surges?

In a recent podcast, “Sarah Seguin on EMPs and How to Protect Your Data” (August 5, 2021), Sarah Seguin, talks with Walter Bradley Center director Robert J. Marks.

Sarah Seguin

Protecting data became a much bigger issue for typical employees during the COVID-19 lockdowns when many were working from home on a computer usually used to surf entertainment vids or shopping sites. Hackers have found the displaced workers a tempting target. In any event, hacks of governments, health care facilities, and big firms are on the increase. Seguin offers some thoughts about a quite different but very relevant data protection issue: Protecting data from degradation from electromagnetic pulses (EMPs):


Top Artificial Intelligence Trends for 2021

As a result of the pandemic, the use of artificial intelligence in many businesses has increased. By 2023, according to IDC, investment in AI technology would have increased to $97.9 billion. Artificial intelligence’s potential utility has only increased after the global COVID-19 epidemic. 

AI will become more essential as companies continue to automate day-to-day operations and better comprehend COVID-affected datasets. Businesses are more digitally connected than ever before since the lockdown and work-from-home policy was introduced.

When it comes to identifying the technologies that will revolutionize how we live, work, and play in the near future, AI is undeniably a hot topic.


Planned Euthanasia Does Not Constitute Healthcare – No Matter How Hard You Clap For It

Iain Davis

In April and June of 2020 I wrote about something I referred to as LOKIN 20. In a series of articles I was among those in the so called “alternative media” who tried to highlight that lockdowns and other response measures, created by the Coronavirus Act, increased the risks to the most vulnerable.

This was entirely contrary to the rationale we were given for these new laws and subsequent policies. The response was promoted to the public as a “plan” to protect the most vulnerable. It was certainly a plan but increasing, rather than decreasing, the risks appears to have been the objective.


COVID RULES – YOU MUST OBEY – trendsresearch.com

Beginning with the draconian lockdowns when the COVID War was launched from China in celebration of its Lunar New Year 2020, with each new day there are new orders imposed upon civilization to fight the never ending battles. 

In addition to articles in this and previous Trends Journals, here is list of some additional COVID Rules You Must Obey:

  • Netflix has declared that vaccinations are now mandatory for cast and crew of all productions, as well as anyone who comes in contact with them (presumably vendors, caterers etc.). 
  • Indoor patrons at units of restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Union Sq. Hospitality Group (18 NYC properties, including Gramercy Tavern, Shake Shack and Union Sq.

We know for a fact Joe Biden took Chinese money through his son. We know for a fact Joe has a personal relationship with Xi Jinping. Biden has already stated he will let international governing bodies determine how to handle communist China.

It is clear that Joe Biden is a foreign agent operating on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. What we are hearing and seeing about further lockdowns, mandated vaccines, food shortages, is all to implement what many are calling “the Great Reset.” The plan is to end freedom.

China, and the UN, want to implement a global one world government powered by artificial intelligence and social credit systems.… Read more...
