Prepare your loved ones, your children, the elderly stuck in old religions. Disclosure is happening right now. We are not alone and we are not at the top of the food chain. It is scary and incomprehensible for some. Heck, I know they are here and exist but what they are is another riddle. They are not like us.
Even as a kid I distrusted this corporation. Evil disguised as children’s entertainment.
In this edition of SPOTM: Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? Hint: It stinks. Also: Halsey, Bad Bunny, Kanye West, and other stars prove that they are owned by the occult elite through subtle and overt symbolism.
on October 26, 2021
Halsey is pretty much a fixture on SPOTM because nearly every single thing she does is tainted with occult elite symbolism. She even managed to turn her pregnancy into a weird ritual.
Bad Bunny is also often featured in SPOTM as he’s clearly “chosen” to push occult elite garbage in the Latin music industry.
As usual, the one-eye sign was all over mass media last month. This is how celebrities show submission to the occult elite. Here are some examples.
In the past weeks, some of the world’s biggest stars clearly showed us that they work for a satanic elite.

Inside the Emergency Department at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, staff are struggling to care for patients who are showing up much sicker than they’ve ever seen.
Tiffani Dusang, the ER’s nursing director, practically vibrates with pent-up anxiety, looking at all the patients lying on a long line of stretchers pushed up against the beige walls of the hospital hallways. “It’s hard to watch,” she says in her warm Texan twang.
But there’s nothing she can do. The ER’s 72 rooms are already filled.
“I always feel very, very bad when I walk down the hallway and see that people are in pain, or needing to sleep, or needing quiet. But they have to be in the hallway with, as you can see, 10 or 15 people walking by every minute.”
It’s a stark contrast to where this emergency department — and thousands of others — were at the start of the pandemic. Except for initial hot spots like New York City, in the spring of 2020 many ERs across the country were often eerily empty. Terrified of contracting COVID, people who were sick with other things did their best to stay away from hospitals. Visits to emergency departments dropped to half their normal levels, according to the Epic Health Research Network, and didn’t fully rebound until the summer of 2021.
But now, they’re too full. Even in parts of the country where COVID isn’t overwhelming the health system, patients are showing up to the ER sicker than they were before the pandemic, their diseases more advanced and in need of more complicated care.
Months of treatment delays have exacerbated chronic conditions and worsened symptoms. Doctors and nurses say the severity of illness ranges widely and includes abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions, and suicide attempts, among others.Enlarge this image

But there’s nowhere to put them all. Emergency Departments are ideally meant to be brief ports in a storm, with patients staying just long enough to be sent home with instructions to follow up with their primary care physicians, or sufficiently stabilized to be transferred “upstairs” to inpatient units or the ICU.
Except now, those long-term care floors are full too, with a mix of COVID and non-COVID patients. That means people coming to the ER are being warehoused for hours, even days, and forcing ER staff to perform long-term care roles they weren’t trained to do.
At Sparrow, space is a valuable commodity in the ER: a separate section of the hospital was turned into an overflow unit. Stretchers stack up in halls. They’ve even brought in a row of brown reclining chairs, lined up against a wall, for patients too who aren’t sick enough for a stretcher but are too sick to stay in the main waiting room. Still, some of the patients in the brown recliners are hooked up to IVs, while others talk quietly with medical specialists, who sit across from them holding clipboards, perched on wheeled stools.
There is no privacy, as Alejoz Perrientoz just learned. He came to the ER this morning because his arm has been tingling and painful for over a week now. He can no longer hold a cup of coffee. A nurse gave him a full physical exam in the brown recliner, which made him self-conscious about having his shirt lifted up in front of strangers. “I felt a little uncomfortable,” he whispers. “But I have no choice, you know? I’m in the hallway. There’s no rooms.”
“We could have done the physical in the parking lot,” he adds, managing a laugh.
On the other side of the ER, beyond a warren of identical-looking hallways and heavy double doors that can only be opened with an employee badge, is Sparrow’s ambulance bay. 70 to 100 ambulances pull in each day. “It’s a lot,” Dusang says, watching EMS teams wheel their patients over to the triage nurse. “It’s the highest I’ve ever seen in my career.”
About three times a week, the ER arrives at a point where they just can’t take anymore patients, she explains. Then they send out the alert for ambulances to divert patients to other hospitals. But that’s a risky move, too, because Sparrow is one of the only hospitals in this part of the state that’s equipped to handle severe traumas. Dusang says it feels like “waving the white flag.”
“But you have to do it when you feel unsafe,” she says, meaning so crowded that they can’t provide patients with adequate care. “So although it won’t [entirely] keep ambulances from coming it, at least it gives them that awareness that, ‘Oh, you know, the ED’s in trouble.'”
Even patients who arrive by ambulance are not guaranteed a room: one nurse is running triage here, screening those who absolutely need a bed, and those who can be put in the waiting area.
“I hate that we even have to make that determination,” Dusang says. Lately they’ve been pulling out some of the patients who are already in the ER’s rooms, when others arrive who was even more critically ill. “No one likes to take someone out the privacy of their room and say, ‘We’re going to put you in a hallway because we need to get care to someone else.'”
The number of ER patients is mostly back to “normal,” but patients are so much sicker
This isn’t just happening at Sparrow.
“We are hearing from members in every part of the country,” says Dr. Lisa Moreno, president of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine. “The Midwest, the South, the Northeast, the West…they are seeing this exact same phenomenon.”
Although the number of ER visits returned to pre-COVID levels this past summer, the admission rates, from the ER to the hospital’s inpatient floors, are still almost 20% higher. That’s according to the most recent analysis by the Epic Health Research Network, which pulls data from more than 120 million patients across the country.
“It’s an early indicator that what’s happening in the ED, is that we’re seeing more acute cases than we were pre-pandemic,” says Caleb Cox, a data scientist at Epic.

Less acute cases, such as people suffering from health issues like rashes or conjunctivitis, still aren’t going to the ER as much as they used to. Instead, they may be opting for an urgent care center or their primary care doctor, Cox explains. Meanwhile, there has been an increase in people coming to the ER with more serious conditions, like strokes and heart attacks.
“Even though we’re seeing the overall volumes come back to normal over the summer here, we see that the more acute conditions still remain higher than the pre-pandemic normals, while the lower-acuity conditions still remain below pre-pandemic normals,” Cox says. So, even though the total number of patients coming to ERs is about the same as before the pandemic, “that’s absolutely going to feel like [if I’m an ER doctor or nurse] I’m seeing more patients and I’m seeing more acute patients.”
Do the overwhelmed ERs affect patient care?
Dr. Lisa Moreno, the AAEM president, works at an Emergency Department in New Orleans. She says the level of illness, and the inability to admit patients quickly and move them to beds upstairs, has created a level of chaos in the ER that she described as “not even humane.”
At the beginning of a recent shift, she heard a patient crying nearby and went to investigate. It was a paraplegic man who’d recently had surgery for colon cancer. His large post-operative wound was sealed with a device called a wound vac, which pulls fluid from the wound into a drainage tube attached to a portable vacuum pump.
But the wound vac had malfunctioned, and that’s why he had come to the ER. But staffers were so busy that by the time Moreno came in, the fluid from his wound was leaking everywhere.
“When I went in, the bed was covered,” she recalls. “I mean, he was lying in a puddle of secretions from this wound. And he was crying, because he said to me, ‘I’m paralyzed, I can’t move to get away from all these secretions, and I know I’m going to end up getting an infection. I know I’m going to end up getting an ulcer. I’ve been laying in this for like eight or nine hours.'”
The nurse in charge of his care told Moreno she simply hadn’t had time to help this patient yet. “She said, ‘I’ve had so many patients to take care of, and so many critical patients. I started a [IV] drip on this person. This person is on a cardiac monitor. I just didn’t have time to get in there.'”
“This is not humane care,” Moreno says. “This is horrible care.”
But it’s what can happen when emergency department staffers don’t have the resources they need to deal with the onslaught of competing demands.
“All the nurses and doctors had the highest level of intent to do the right thing for the person,” Moreno says. “But because of the high acuity of…a large number of patients, the staffing ratio of nurse to patient, even the staffing ratio of doctor to patient, this guy did not get the care that he deserved to get, just as a human being.”
This unintended neglect is extreme, and not the experience of the vast majority of patients who arrive at ERs right now. But the problem is not new: Even before the pandemic, ER overcrowding had been a “widespread problem and a source of patient harm…reflective of not just individual department performance or even individual hospital performance, but of health system dysfunction throughout the United States,” according to a recent commentary in the New England Journal of Medicine.
“ED crowding is not an issue of inconvenience,” the authors wrote. “There is incontrovertible evidence that ED crowding leads to significant patient harm, including morbidity and mortality related to consequential delays of treatment for both high- and low-acuity patients…”
And it’s burning out an already overwhelmed staff.
Burnout feeds staffing shortages, and vice versa, in a vicious cycle
Every morning, Tiffani Dusang wakes up and checks her Sparrow email with one singular hope: that she will not see yet another nurse resignation letter in her inbox.
“I cannot tell you how many of them [the nurses] tell me they went home crying” after their shifts, she says. “And you just hope they show up the next day for more.”
But despite Dusang’s best efforts to support her staffers, check on them regularly, talk with them about their careers, and make them feel seen and heard and appreciated, she cannot stop them from quitting. And they’re leaving too fast to replace, either to take higher-paying gigs as a travel nurse, to try a less-stressful type of nursing, or simply walking away from the profession entirely.
Midway through the afternoon shift at Sparrow, a nurse breaks down sobbing. A fellow nurse, Amy Harvey, pulls her into a corner and reminds her to take deep breaths.
“Everybody has a breaking point,” Harvey says. “It just depends on the day and the situation…mine could be in three days. Something comes in that just hits home for some reason, and I need a minute to go take a deep breath.”

To help fill the staffing gaps, Sparrow’s ED has hired about 20 so-called “baby nurses,” a term for brand new nurses. To bring them on board, the hospital waived its previous requirement for working in the ER — at least one year of nursing experience elsewhere — and many of these new nurses are fresh out of nursing school. Right away, they’re begun their careers by diving into the deep end, even though they’re still training.
“I need some assistance,” one of these new nurses whispers to her supervisor, holding up an IV bag. She can’t get the top open. “It just pushes in, doesn’t it?”
The veteran nurse takes it and shows her: “You gotta twist it so those line up,” she says. With a breathy but grateful “Thaaaank youuuu!” the baby nurse turns, peels off towards the patient’s room.
Kelly Spitz has been an Emergency Department nurse at Sparrow for 10 years. But lately, she has also fantasized about leaving. “It has crossed my mind several times,” she says, and yet she continues to come back. “Because I have a team here. And I love what I do,” she says, but then starts to cry. It’s not the hard work, or even the stress. It’s not being able to give her patients the kind of care and attention she wants to give them, and that they need and deserve.
She still thinks a lot about a particular patient who came in a while ago. His test results revealed terminal cancer. Spitz spent all day working the phones, hustling case managers, trying to get hospice care set up in the man’s home. He was going to die, and she just didn’t want him to have to die here, in the hospital, where only one visitor was even allowed. She wanted to get him home, and back with his family.
“I was willing to take him home in my own car, because we were waiting and waiting and waiting for an ambulance, because they’re not available,” Spitz said. Finally, after many hours, they found an ambulance to take him home.
Three days later, the man’s family members called Spitz: he had died, as she expected. But he had died surrounded by family. They were calling to thank her.
“I felt like I did my job there, because I got him home,” she says. But that’s a rare feeling these days. “I just hope it gets better. I hope it gets better soon.”
At 4 pm, the emergency department is the busiest it’s been all day. The patients waiting in the halls seem especially vulnerable, silently witnessing the controlled chaos rushing by them. One woman is sleeping or unconscious on a stretcher, naked from the waist down. Someone has thrown a sheet over her, so she’s partially covered, but part of her hips and legs are bare, and open sores are visible on her calves.
As one shift approaches its end, Dusang faces a new crisis: the overnight shift is even even more short-staffed than usual.
“Can we get two inpatient nurses?” she asks, hoping to borrow two nurses from one of the hospital floors upstairs.
“Already tried,” replies nurse Troy Latunski.
Without more staff, it’s going to be hard to care for new patients who come in overnight — from car crashes or seizures or other emergencies.
But Latunski’s got a plan: he’ll go home now, snatch a few hours of sleep, and return at 11 p.m. to work the overnight shift in the ER’s overflow unit. That means he will be largely caring for eight patients, alone. On just a few short hours of sleep. But right now, that is their only, and best, option.
Dusang considers for a moment, takes a deep breath and nods. “Ok,” she says.
“Go home. Get some sleep. Thank you,” she adds, shooting Latunski a grateful smile. And then she pivots, because another nurse is already approaching her with an urgent question. It’s on to the next crisis.

I always get people telling me, “Capitalism just means free trade.”
No, it doesn’t, that’s just some stupid nonsense libertarian types started saying a few years ago. Capitalism means what the Marxists who coined and popularized the term have been saying it means since the 1800s: the owners of the means of production exploiting workers by paying them a fraction of the wealth they generate. Capitalism is a system which financially coerces those who have nothing to sell but their labor to sell it to the owners of the means of production, necessarily at a price that is far below the amount of value they generate and with no influence over the industries they are powering with their work. It is inherently exploitative, and leads to corporations with no human interest pursuing profit at all cost even at the expense of the ecosystem we all depend on for survival.
Even those who support capitalism understand this distinction if they’ve done a tiny bit of research outside their partisan echo chambers. You don’t get to just change someone else’s definition of words to defend your belief system from their criticisms; that’s not a thing.
By distorting this definition, supporters of capitalism can object to its critics with “This isn’t real capitalism, because trade and finance are regulated by corrupt governments.” No it’s capitalism. Real capitalism is not just entirely compatible with the corruption of capitalist governments but an unavoidable component of it. Saying “It’s not capitalism that’s the problem, it’s crony capitalism” or “It’s not capitalism that’s the problem, it’s corporatism” is the same as saying “It’s not my chain smoking that’s the problem, it’s my emphysema!” One inevitably leads to the other.
Only narrative says I should be able to use my socioeconomically advantaged position to hire workers who exponentially multiply my wealth for a fraction of what it costs me to pay them. Capitalist narrative, created and promulgated for generations by those who benefit from it.
A system which financially coerces those who have nothing to sell but their labor to work for companies for a fraction of the value they generate is violent. It is aggression. It is simply legalized theft. The only reason this isn’t obvious to everyone is centuries of capitalist propaganda, and if people ever manage to free their minds from that indoctrination and begin moving to redistribute the wealth the capitalist class has stolen, guess what will happen? Armed forces will be deployed to kill them until they stop. This is on top of the global war on communism that has been going on for generations. The entire thing is violence, and is held in place by violence.
Malignant narcissists don’t typically seek out therapy, partly because they’re wired to assume they’re perfect and partly because our current systems reward the tendencies of malignant narcissism. We are ruled by untreated malignant narcissists who were elevated by this system.
It’s a pretty interesting coincidence how western news media just happen to keep discovering reasons why censorship of internet platforms is gravely necessary in a globe-spanning empire that’s held together by global narrative control.
The most significant political moment in the US since 9/11 and its aftermath was when liberal institutions decided that Trump’s 2016 election wasn’t a failure of status quo politics but a failure of information control. All the other bullshit since then has followed from this.
This was when the belief among mainstream journalists became widespread that internet censorship is needed and that it is their duty to manipulate public opinion. Another 2016 WikiLeaks drop in 2020 would never have been reported on by the mass media, as evidenced by their response to the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Now we’re seeing an increasing homogenization of online information as the media class cheers on censorship in the name of fighting Russia, white supremacism, Covid misinformation, and in the name of protecting US elections, while the media acts weirder and weirder. The way the entire mass media jumped right on board the Russiagate narrative instead of asking what’s true, for example, or the way many questionable claims about Covid which have since been invalidated were asserted with adamant aggression; this all followed from that moment.
And now we’re watching cold war escalations continually ramp up against Russia and China, and the mass media are forcefully and uncritically pumping all US government narratives into public consciousness. The 2016 reshaping of their values lubricated the way for this.
“You only criticize the US and its allies, not Russia or China!”
Focusing one’s criticisms on the world’s most powerful and destructive government requires no defense. It’s not weird that I do it, it’s weird more people don’t. Those who want to hear criticisms of Russia and China are advised to switch on the nearest television.
It’s such a dumb complaint.
“It’s so strange and suspicious that you only focus on the worst impulses of the globe-spanning power structure which is vastly more destructive than any other in existence instead of yelling about the same governments as every billionaire media outlet throughout the entire western world.”
Remember when moral panic was a specific thing that would happen once in a while instead of western civilization’s general continuous state of existence?
Our rulers always have to choose between bread and circuses or accelerationism; they’re either choosing to keep the people mollified and distracted while stealing a little or to risk provoking revolution by stealing a lot. Right now they’re picking the latter. Interesting choice.
When you look at it that way you realize that even when something horrible is happening it could also be leading to something very healthy. They’re walking a delicate tightrope walk while trying to keep their greed from consuming them. They’re not really in control here.
