World Sofa Report – Episode 15 – The gray zone

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/1cak0j4u

“The space between peace and war”, a place where “coercion, intimidation, propaganda and manipulation are at play.” In other words, the gray zone. That’s how the top military brass of Australia sees China right now in relation to the Five Eyes Network.

The same can be said about several other conflicts on the planet – like the conflict between the general population in Europe and the majority of European governments. Or the conflict between normal, mentally sane people and Progressives.

Attorneys General from 40 US states press Faceberg to drop the creation of a preteen Instagram citing inherent harms to such a move. Coca Cola suddenly puts a halt on militant racism after its general counsel resigns. Meanwhile, the Cho Bai Den administration has been ‘following the science’ on school reopening by letting the teachers’ unions decide everything. Very scientific indeed!

Speaking of science, nobody is willing to try to explain how come the allegedly killer virus killed roughly nobody in Haiti – a country whose populace never considered the fluffy cough to be anything serious or worthy of much attention.

Better news come from State legislatures. Florida legislature finally makes a sound decision and bans so-called ‘transgender athletes’ from women’s sports. Meanwhile, Idaho legislature bans critical race theory and cultural Marxism from public schools and the governor appointed a commission to evaluate and document the levels of Marxist indoctrination currently existent in Idaho schools with a view to eliminate them.

Meanwhile, tax hikes in Colombia are off the table after violent anti-tax protests (or vigorous political and economical debates) explain thoroughly to the government that taxation is theft.

In Europe, honks related to the pandemic continue. NHS app meant to schedule ‘vaccines’ leaks private information to anyone who wants it. For free. While in Romania one gets a free tour to the medieval instruments museum at Dracula’s castle if one gets Pfizer’s experimental gene therapy at the door.

In better news, the founder of the far-leftist party Podemos suddenly dropped any and all political activities after the voters in Madrid outright flattened them and elevated the conservatives who had morally and legally superiour positions in relation to the management of the Wuhan Cough. Much to the bien pensants’ surprise, Spaniards aren’t big fans of sanitary fascism after all.

Speaking of sanitary fascism, the illiberal regime in Canada arrests a Christian preacher in a new low for the uncivilized zeitgeist of US’ northern neighbor. And in Germany, the Green Party is the best polling party with just 4 months before the general election which is due to finally bring the Merkel regime to an end.

In India, prime minister Modi’s party, the right-wing BJP, makes substantive gains in islamo-leftist West Bengal. But one wouldn’t know that from the CNN which presents this success as a ‘loss in a key election’.

Japan’s debt skyrocketed faster than in the 1990s, growing by almost $1Tn in less than a year, a trend that worries even the Japanese who are otherwise accustomed with gigantic levels of public debt.

And, finally, New Zealand’s Ardern is trying to tone down the sinophilia shown lately by some of her cabinet ministers, but she still insists on a type of Non-Aligned Movement foreign and international trade policy that is increasingly of concern for the Five Eyes Network.

These and other news are commented thoroughly in a robust 15th episode of the World Sofa Report.

World Sofa Report – Episode 14 – Time for cleanup to commence

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/7jjyle3b

Time for a cleanup in many ways. California is bracing to cleanup its gubernatorial office while the local authorities in LA have been cleaning up the homeless population in order to satisfy the immense Ceaușescu-tier ego of the pricks attending the Oscar gala.

Meanwhile, the Arkansas legislators have successfully overridden a gubernatorial veto on a bill meant to clean up the possibilities of the transgenderist lobby to continue to mutilate confused children.

At the same time, the White House is preparing over one billion dollars to bribe the press into singing the Pandemic music; while in Brazil the Presidency is doing exactly the opposite and tells the apparatchiks he will use the army to enforce Constitutional rights and freedoms rather than illiberal and illegal sanitary fascism measures.

In Europe, Denmark is slowly gearing up to send as many Syrians back home as possible, Romania takes another step towards cleaning up the Chinese presence, Albania is bracing for a complicated governance following a hard fought election campaign (which included bullets) and the global semiconductor shortage is bound to last for at least another year. Speaking of bullets, Spanish leftists have put up a nice false flag to win some victimology points.

In the meantime, the CCP is trying even harder to get into the Big Data business in order to consolidate its techno-dictatorship while New Zealand breaks ranks with the Five Eyes Network in order to further integrate into the statute of a Chinese puppet state.

World Sofa Report – Episode 13 – Old news are back

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/2t6hwpmm

We’ve been out almost two months on the sofa report and, just as we got back, we get more old news delivered as breaking news.

For instance, the Canadian CSIS delivered the breaking news that there is Chinese interference in Canada. As if this hasn’t been happening for more than 30 years now and somehow Toronto ended up operated by the Triads and Vancouver became Hongcouver in the last 12 months or so.

Also “breaking news” is that withdrawal from Afghanistan means costly litigation due to the web of well-connected contractors who will not let the government tit go easily – as if that hasn’t been happening for almost 20 years or so.

But there is some legit news too – such as the increasing number of states and jurisdictions who stand up against the disdainful and illiberal idea of ‘vaccine passports’ or the latest crazy idea of the New Zealand government which purports to ask investment funds and insurers to issue public ‘climate reports’.

In the meantime, there’s a diplomatic kerfuffle between Poland and Belarus in the background, Swiss kids are learning to use the Cough19 panic to their advantage, the Sweden Democrats are slowly advancing in their long march through institutions, the French Left tears itself apart over woke racist nonsense and the workers at Qantas have figured it out that the pandemic was a great excuse for management to purge its payrolls.

Oh, and we also discuss the details of the EU-Turkey summit because the Cathedral media was busy discussing von der Leyen’s sofa rather than what really matters.

World Sofa Report – Episode 12 – You can’t stop the signal

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/q6d5cnkq

You can censor, obfuscate, impede, frustrate and bury it in ignorance – but ultimately you can’t stop the signal. And you can’t stop ideas whose time has come.

11 months ago we were in the tiny minority contesting the “expert consensus” on almost all Wuhan Cough-related stuff and also discussing the economic implications of the monumental fuck-up. As well as the further disruption permitted by global health disruptors such as Bill Gates. For months, that was either ignored or (intentionally) lumped in with intentional disinformation. But that can only go so far. At some point, the signal does come out and becomes impossible to ignore.

So, now it’s halal to mock and attack Bill Gates (conspiracy theory 7 months ago), it’s halal to talk about pre-existent immunity (conspiracy theory 10 months ago), it’s halal to talk about Andrew Cuomo’s murderous conduct (far-right Trumpist conspiracy theory 9 months ago), it’s halal to talk about the math and graphs simply not adding up (Putinist/extremist/far-right conspiracy theory until a month ago) and on and on like that it goes. And we’ll go through all of it because that’s why you support us – to tell the truth before it becomes okay to talk about it.

Besides panicard lunacy, of course we also review geopolitics. The CCP continues to pressure around in the South China Sea triggering a new set of discussions about upping the ante on preparedness on the Japanese side of the cold war. Canada wants further restrictions on gun ownership in line with a promise made by the Trudeau cabinet in the campaign. China overtakes the US as EU’s main trading partner and Iran threatens to tighten restrictions when it comes to the access it provides to the United Nations atomic agency inspectors, unless the Robinette administration lifts the sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Meanwhile, Robinette appeared to suggest that China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang is just a different cultural norm, in a rambling response to a friendly CNN townhall. And, finally, Google cuts a deal with the Australian government in the issue of payment to the news media, while Faceberg blocks the global access to Australian media in a dispute that will soon follow in Europe as well.

World Sofa Report – Episode 11 – The European Russification via Европейский союз

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/j98v1wfo

It’s too long to keep on saying “the European Union of Soviet Socialist Republics” so Европейский союз (pronounced “Evropeyski Sayuz”; transliterated: Jevropéjskij sojúz). And it is turning into a “sojuz” with Russia as the behavior of the State towards the protesters is now barely distinguishable between Brussels and Moscow.

However, there are some differences – for instance Germany is growing increasingly isolated in the EU on the Nord Stream 2 question as even France and Germany’s own deep state is slowly coming to the realization that this project may have not been the brightest idea. But Mutti Merkel presses on as she calls for a collaboration with the Gamaleya Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology in Moscow to counter the blunders of the European Commission (or Европейская комиссия).

Speaking of Russia, the protests called for by the opposition leader are still quite underwhelming as Dmitri Medvedev touts the usage of the unusable Russian law of “sovereign internet”. We explain what that means, show you footage from the protests and the latest cringe from the Kremlin.

In other news, the DOJ targets Elon Musk’s SpaceX for the crime of preferring US citizens over illegal immigrants. And in San Francisco almost three times as many people died of fetanyl overdose than of the allegedly super dangerous Chinese Virus.

President Cho Bai Den is busy keeping his Baizuo Democrat Party in line while the data of as many as 80% of the American adult population might have been stolen by the CCP. Meanwhile, the saga of Reddit meme stocks continue.

In Myanmar the CCP is put in a weird position as the CCP preferred the ‘democratic’ regime over the regime of the CCP-skeptical Burmese military. Still, this is an intra-communist struggle – an aspect glossed over by the Cathedral Media. The same media that seems incapable of reporting fundamentally good news about the evolution of the Wuhan Virus epidemic in Africa.

Further East, the South Korean leadership wants Big Business to share profits with smaller firms that have been hard hit by the hysterical measures allegedly meant to curb the Wuhan Virus. The only thing the measures curbed was the economy, but that cannot be admitted in public, especially as elections are coming up in South Korea. North of the DMZ, the situation is still complicated as a former diplomat explains that denuclearizing is not an option for the Kim regime.

Finally, in Oceania, the New Zealand mining industry pushes back to the ‘climate change’ activism by the Leftist government – while in Australia two million people have been placed under house arrest because someone might have coughed.

World Sofa Report – Episode 10 – Coughing with a political conscience

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/tr8o2oyv

The Cathedral have told you that “democracy” was in danger in the USA (as if the USA has ever been a democracy) because some people got into the Capitol building. The problem is that none of this seem to have been the case when roughly the same thing happened in April 2016, July 2016 or September 2018. Or during the 2 year long protests in Madison, WI in 2011-13. Or during the clash at the Sacramento Capitol in 2016. Funny how that works.

In reality “democracy” was only in danger in the sense that some questions have been postponed a bit too much.

In other news, a man has been living for 3 months in the Chicago O’Hare airport citing fear of the Wuhan Flu. And Canada’s Trudeau suddenly realized that Orange Man was good for his country, now that Robinette axed the Keystone XL pipeline.

In Europe, diplomats approach the Robinette administration with caution as some of them whisper that Orange Man had a point on defense. Meanwhile, in Italy, the Prime Minister narrowly manages to cling to office as the masticator that is Italian politics is attempting to do to Giuseppe Conte what it usually does – since the country usually holds a government for an average of 1.14 years.

The “heroes” in the NHS now suddenly want to be legally protected from prosecution. Just like in other places, realization sets in that, for the most part, the “heroes” in the hospitals are oftentimes part of the Problem in the Cough19 equation.

Meanwhile, in Germany, those who disagree on Cough19 with the Health führer (official title is Gesundheitsführer) may be held in detention centers. If the opposition does not exploit this politically in the runup for the September federal elections, then they deserve what’s coming.

In Uganda the local dictator booted off Faceberg. The Cathedral reports that as an act of autocracy and a danger – which is correct, but not complete. The underlying issue is not that some tinpot dictator is pissed off at Facebook – but that the reason offered is a very legitimate one and is the fault of Facebook itself. Cases like the Ugandan election are the reason why BigTech has to be taken down a peg or two, if not outright flattened.

In other news, more sanctions are put on China while the CCP retaliates with some of its own. As in every episode, we try to explain the complicated layers in the region in ways the Cathedral can’t.

Finally, in Australia the health officials shat themselves when news from Norway regarding vaccines arrived on their shores. Which is lovely to watch because Australian bureaucrats have yet to escape from the mentality that they can control things. Meanwhile, neighboring NZ’s tourism industry slowly starts to catch up with the reality that most of them will be bankrupt.

World Sofa Report – Episode 9 – Epiphanies of the new year

The audio version: http://s.go.ro/1k9iimac

The New Year is upon us and with it more politics and more fun. We took the Epiphany Day to look into some of the latest controversies.

Alphabet Inc. is about to feel on itself the nonsense it has promoted and foisted upon others: namely unionization, militant woke activism and purposeful disintegration of the company’s internal trust. Sure, the unionization drive likely won’t succeed but the shock will be fun to watch. Awoman!

Speaking of Awoman! – a Wickenburg mother beat the living bejesus out of her children because she was scared she is going to cough. Cough19’s Witnesses is a dangerous apocalyptic cult and it was only a matter of time until it started generating child abuse as well.

One should add abortion to the narrow list of acceptable “essential” reasons for which Cough19 “guidelines” are suspended and mass protests can be permitted. After anti-White racism and violence by militant anti-White racists, Argentina showed the world that abortion is also acceptable reason to hold mass rallies. To their credit, both rallies in favor and against abortion are permitted.

In 1999 the socialists promised to make Venezuela a paradise of equality and egalitarianism. Twenty-two years later the country is more unequal than ever but it also started a slow and painful road to recovery. The recovery is slow because the path chosen resembles quite a lot to the one chosen in 2014 for Zimbabwe – namely dollarization.

The New Year finally brought Brexit. After years of panicard titles and pompous speeches by those who’ve come to be known as “Remoaners”, Brexit is finally here. Delivered by Boris Johnson. That’s what history will note. Sadly, history will also note that Boris Johnson was unable to apply the same negotiation logic with his own bureaucrats – preferring instead to succumb to the fake news promoted by SAGE and other loons – thus the country is now once again in a pointless and long-term-destroying lockdown.

NATO is apparently concerned with South-Eastern Europe’s cybersecurity. The proposed way to tackle this is just wrong. It’s frustrating to watch politicians, journalists and pundits (who know absolutely nothing about cybersecurity) opine pompously about how NATO should do things.

The Greek Orthodox Church finally adopts the correct attitude about Cough19 rules on Epiphany Day and tells the Greek government to politely buzz off as religious liberty is more important than hypochondriacs’ fear of not coughing. A similar attitude was adopted in Romania as well (and we’ll show you footage of how it looked like).

We also spend a few minutes to discuss the allegedly ‘far-right’ political party newly entered into the Romanian Parliament and scared the living hell out of the middle class left-wing Cathedral pricks as well as the comfy cuckservatives who know all too well how to do things… except how to get themselves voted into the Parliament.

Iran’s uranium enrichment is up once again proving President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu right once again about the trustworthiness of Tehran. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia eases the tensions with Qatar in an attempt to drive up the isolation of Iran with a united front.

Finally, we look at China’s propaganda about the Wuhan Coronavirus and the apparent disappearance of Alibaba’s founder.

World Sofa Report – Episode 8 – When technooptimism meets reality

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/7pqbnquz

As we approach the New Year, politics, of course, doesn’t stop. Nor does it take a vacation. We listened to the critics and went back to the 4-hour model.

Goolag’s outage has made plenty of technooptimists to stop and ask some questions. Suddenly it’s no longer fun and games when you can’t turn on your lights in your own house because of a hard-drive failure hundreds or thousands of kilometers away.

In the meantime, Cough19 ‘measures’ continue to be flattened in courts allover the Western World, much to the desperation of panicards, shills and technooptimists.

Not a week goes by lately without another human trafficking ring being busted. But even though the news is being reported honestly – the interest for analysis continues to remain pretty low.

Meanwhile, in Europe, the Paris city hall found itself fined for sexism as it had way too many women in the top jobs as decided by the militant socialist mayor. Of course, the fine is being contested because, you see, it’s not even about equality of outcome. It’s all about militant misandry – and always has been.

More details are coming out from Tigray as the conflict between the Ethiopian federal government and the TPLF continues, even though the military has taken control of Mekelle (Tigary’s capital).

The peace accord between Armenia and Azerbaijan has been broken once again while the Cathedral continues the healthy focus on the abuses in Xinjiang.

Meanwhile, China continues its geopolitical moves in the region. Indonesia will use Sinovac to control the Chinese virus under a national plan that defies global trends in meaningful ways. Also, the Chinese government announced new restrictions on Australian coal trying to bully Australia for the country’s latest moves.

Finally, New Zealand’s reported economic numbers simply don’t add up as they severely underestimate the impact of the extremist and illiberal policies they employed under the excuse of the Wuhan virus.

These, and other topics, are covered thoroughly at, likely, the last episode for 2020 of the World Sofa Report.

World Sofa Report – Episode 7 – The Transdniestrization of Azerbaijan

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/ywtuqq2l

More than half of US voters do not share the Cathedral Media’s opinion that President Trump should hurry up to concede to Trunalimunumaprzure. Also, roughly half of Democrats suspect or believe that the election was,… malarkey. Roughly speaking.

In the meantime, GOP lawmakers are preparing articles of impeachment against Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan governor who refuses to obey a State Supreme Court decision.

In other news, a school district run by Democrats (of course) decided that Asians are honorary Whites – very much in line with the traditional 1890s view of the Democrat Party, a view just widely rejected at the ballot box in California, of all places.

Meanwhile, down south in Brazil, president Bolsonaro has brought back the heavy rhetorical artillery – calling for “gunpowder” in relation to a potential Biden administration over Biden’s unintelligent comments about the Amazon rainforest and asking the citizenry to avoid dealing with the Wuhan Cough like a bunch of bundles of sticks.

The bad news for the Cathedral don’t end here. Now President Emmanuel Macron also sounds like “the far-Right” of five years ago – as he slams the media for legitimizing Islamist violence and muddying the waters on the wider conversation about the religion of special needs.

Many scientific debates also occurred in Europe. A British MP was slapped with a lifetime ban in all of the pubs after he voted for more Wuhan Cough bullshit restrictions. Several police officers in Germany are now in the hospital following vigorous scientific debates in Berlin and Frankfurt. Bratislava also hosted a big scientific debate while London and Paris held smaller than usual debates about the Chinavirus measures.

Speaking of the Chinavirus, you can die from this cough even if you die as a result of a head injury caused by falling off a ladder. An unfortunate Croatian man fell off a ladder while working on a roof and then the “scientists” classified his death as a Cough19. The same “scientists” then expect you and the general public to actually trust them and their totally-not-bullshit numbers.

In the meantime, the situation in Ethiopia has indeed escalated. The Cathedral Media hasn’t yet got the memo on who is the designated “bad guy” in the conflict so for now the mainstream coverage is still relatively objective. But not for long.

The latest kerfuffle between Armenia and Azerbaijan has come to an end. On paper, Azerbaijan won. Over the longer run,… that’s up for debate. No country that found itself with Russian “peacekeeping forces” on its territory managed to do well so far.

And, finally, the CCP is a little bit upset over Australia’s military alliance with Japan. Tough luck.

World Sofa Report – Episode 6 – Trunalimunumaprzure, roughly speaking

Audio version: http://s.go.ro/z9g21rfx

So,… Trunalimunumaprzure or President Trump? At the moment of taping, that wasn’t sure at all. Even at the moment of publication it’s still not really sure, though the assumption is Trunalimunumaprzure. So until that is clarified, we took the time to look at other facets of the election which are already clarified but few talk about (both on the Left and on the non-Left).

There have also been elections in Bolivia and Republic of Georgia. In Bolivia the former president is ending his exile after his former aide won the election, but his return doesn’t make the socialists happy. In Tbilisi, the ruling party was reconfirmed – yet the opposition refuses to concede.

Putin may step down sooner due to a degenerative disease and Kosovo’s president has already stepped down and will face charges of crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

The Eurocrats appear to have struck a deal to use EU funds as a tool for ideological enforcement against the countries who disagree with the extremist Brussels “consensus” and the followers of a certain religion of Peace are upset that the French Republic has taken a break in kowtowing to their demands.

Meanwhile, a mayor in Australia apologizes for saying boys have a penis – while Ethiopia might be bracing for a civil war because the do-gooder Nobel Peace Prize Laureate who serves as prime minister doesn’t understand the base of his own country. In NZ the establishment is afraid that its own relationship with China will have to be reevaluated even if Biden wins the US election. Notice a pattern? Whether it’s the West, “the Rest” or the third world – the “do gooders” are always the same: disconnected from reality. Or, even worse, educated out of reality.

That’s it, for now.
