WHO 6/8/20: "The widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence"

The corporate media is reporting that the World Health Organization finally joined the CDC in recommending masks for everyone, but if you read the WHO's actual report dated today June 8, 2020, what it actually says is "Many countries have recommended the use of fabric masks/face coverings for the general public. At the present time, the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or
direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider (see below)...the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide an
adequate level of protection"

Archbishop of Seattle Asks Catholic Mass Attendees To "Please Cooperate" In a "Voluntary Registration" for Contact Tracing

Archbishop Paul Dennis Etienne of Seattle Washington posted a video on May 29 with the regulations for re-opening the churches in his diocese. In a video posted on the diocese website, the Archbishop says "Some changes in the environment as well for this protection. Uuhh, We are going to ask for a voluntary registration of those who come primarily so that should there be a flareup of this virus, we will be able to appropriately contact trace and alert others who may have been inadvertently exposed. So please cooperate with this measure as well."

Eyewitness: Caretaker shouted 'he's disabled' before soldier shot autistic Palestinian

The testimony matches that of Eyad Hallaq's caregiver. Meanwhile, the version of events recounted by two officers involved in the incident is inconsistent.

New eyewitness testimony in the shooting and killing of Eyad Hallaq, a 32-year-old autistic Palestinian man, in Jerusalem's Old City last Saturday, strengthens the suspicion that police shot him while he was lying on the ground, and after his counselor yelled that he was disabled.

The witness, A.R., a laborer, was in the garbage-bin space where Hallaq fled to get away from the police. According to his testimony, which was taken by B'Tselem investigator Amer Aruri on the day Hallaq was shot, A.R. was sitting in the garbage room ? a small, roofless structure used by sanitation workers on Sha'ar Ha'arayot Street.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An "honest mistake"; or deliberate assassination, as part of the IDF's multi-faceted "Final Solution" for all Palestinians?!?

Netanyahu vows all settlements will be annexed July 1, but other lands may wait

Meeting with West Bank mayors who have refrained from trashing Trump plan, PM also quoted saying that the territory conditionally offered to Palestinians doesn’t constitute a state.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told settler leaders on Sunday that he still intends to annex all West Bank settlements on the July 1 date that is the earliest allowed by his coalition deals, but he acknowledged that annexing other lands allocated to Israel under the Trump peace plan will likely take more time, several participants in the meeting told The Times of Israel.

The remarks reaffirmed Netanyahu’s self-declared July 1 target date for extending Israeli sovereignty to all West Bank settlements but also appeared to mark the first time he has admitted to long-reported delays by the joint US-Israeli team tasked with mapping out the further territories to be annexed, mainly in the Jordan Valley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have warned what passes for Palestinian leadership for years that if they didn't take a more decisive, but peaceful, stand for a Palestinian state, it wouldn't even be the size of Lichtenstein; I hate having been right on this.

With all other legal actions being barred to them, the Palestinians need to advocate, peacefully, for Israeli citizenship in the newly annexed areas; this appears to be their only possible representational salvation left.

America’s Forever Wars Have Come Home

Here’s a little portrait of the United States in June 2020, a passage from a New York Times report on the National Guard’s treatment of a recent protest march of people chanting "We can’t breathe!" in Washington, D.C.:

"A Black Hawk helicopter, followed by a smaller medical evacuation helicopter, dropped to rooftop level with its searchlights aimed at the crowd. Tree limbs snapped, nearly hitting several people. Signs were torn from the sides of buildings. Some protesters looked up, while others ran into doorways. The downward force of air from the rotors was deafening. The helicopters were performing a ‘show of force’ – a standard tactic used by military aircraft in combat zones to scatter insurgents."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As someone who, many, many years ago, graduated from a "rainbow college", featuring any and every ethnicity one could imagine, and understanding how people could work together for the common good, because everyone there got along brilliantly, all intent on getting that diploma, what continues to keep happening in this country, in terms of violence in our inner cities, just breaks my heart.

And the practice of "kettling" by our police departments, has to stop, please, and right now.

White House Tries to Link US Protests to Venezuelan Government: Allegations appear to hinge on Max Blumenthal's t-shirt

The best part of a major, nationwide protest movement is having someone to blame. This weekend, the new narrative embraced by the White House would pin large US protests against police brutality on Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.

The Trump Administration has had a problem with Maduro for a long time, and in just the past few months had also accused him of being involved in the drug trade, justifying a bounty on his head that culminated in a failed invasion by a private US company.

The White House is refusing to offer any proof on this, saying it was “non-open source.” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) cited certain news reports from Latin America. The whole thing, incredibly, all falls back on Max Blumenthal’s T-shirt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, WHO in the White House is off their meds, in order to come up with such an unhinged linkage?!?

Apparently in the operative collective-think of the White House, reasonable people living in our inner cities, who are consistently exposed to a steady diet of police violence, have absolutely no reason to be upset when that violence resulted in the death of an unarmed man.

Was Floyd an angel?!? The short answer is, absolutely not; but in light of the fact that he was already subdued and in custody, why did this cop believe he had the right to asphyxiate him with the hold he used?!?

I cannot believe for one second that he didn't know what he was doing, and what the ultimate outcome would have been.

There is a great deal we urgently need to fix in our own back yard as Americans, before we lecture other countries about their perceived "wrong-doings."

India and China Agree to Resolve Border Standoff

India and China agreed to resolve a current border standoff peacefully in line with various bilateral agreements and will keep each other engaged as talks remains deadlocked.

“The two sides will continue military and diplomatic engagements to resolve the situation and to ensure peace and tranquility in the border areas,” India’s ministry of external affairs said in a statement.

White House, Pentagon tensions near breaking point

Friction in this relationship, historically, is not unusual. But in recent days, and for the second time in Trump’s term, it has raised a prospect of high-level resignations and the risk of lasting damage to the military’s reputation.

Calm may return, both in the crisis over Floyd’s death and in Pentagon leaders’ angst over Trump’s threats to use federal troops to put down protesters. But it could leave a residue of resentment and unease about this president’s approach to the military, whose leaders welcome his push for bigger budgets but chafe at being seen as political tools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is an horrific irony here, and I say this with the greatest respect for our country's military; geopolitically, the military, particularly in the 20th and 21st century, have been the tools of destabilization and regime change across the globe, from Iraq, to Afghanistan, Somalia, and Syria.

The pattern is obvious, for anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together; destabilise, regime change, and insure that the only monetary unit in which that country's resources are sold, are in US dollars.

It is NOT the military's fault that this keeps happening; it is the entire fault of the US civilian government, ordering them to continue to behave in this manner, which is the problem, to fatten the coffers of the already well-monied.

In this country, we have the illusion of change, every 4 years, rather than any substantive real change in domestic or foreign policy; because no matter who, and which party wins, the "War Party" in this country has full bi-partisan support.

This... is the grim reality I see this election year, and every election year.

The late George Carlin was an incredible comedian, but more than that, in his own way a prophet. George Carlin on War:
how bombing brown people became a growth industry

The article went on to state:"“In a sane and just society, the architects of the nearly 17-year-old war in Iraq, which is still ongoing and has left an estimated half-million people dead, would face war crimes charges and those who cheered them on would be thoroughly discredited.”
— Jessica Schulberg, HuffPost

Amid swirling tensions between President Donald Trump, Iran, and the potential for a new war in the Middle East, a historic clip resurfaced on social media of comedian George Carlin, bemoaning the pattern of American militarism in which the United States, often with the help of a conspiring media and a lazy public, jump into a major war just about every twenty years.

Carlin recorded the routine entitled “Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf” as part of an HBO special in 1992, on the heels of the first Gulf War launched by President George H.W. Bush. The clip was shared on Twitter, as a War Powers Resolution to block Trump from additional attacks on Iran was debated on Capitol Hill. The message of Carlin’s routine was proven once again relevant."

NEW YORK COPS SUSPENDED AFTER SHOVING 75-YEAR-OLD MAN TO THE GROUND IN VIRAL VIDEO

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
The Buffalo, New York Police Department has suspended two officers without pay and launched an Internal Affairs investigation after a viral video showed the cops shoving a 75-year-old protester onto a concrete sidewalk as police cleared Niagara Square during enforcement of a citywide curfew.

The man can be seen bleeding from the head following the incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have looked at this video again and again, and keep asking myself, at 71 years of age, was there no other way of dealing with this old guy, who could not have possibly been a physical threat to the officers involved?!?

And folks, in my world, the short answer is, absolutely, yes, there were other ways; the guy just made for a convenient target.

FUNDED BY KEVIN DURANT, FOUNDED BY EX-GOOGLE ENGINEERS: MEET THE DRONE STARTUP SCORING MILLIONS IN GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE CONTRACTS

SOURCE: FORBES
With civil unrest erupting across the U.S., protesters vocalizing their support for the black community are being threatened with military force. America’s streets and skies are being flooded with officers from multiple federal agencies - the Army, FBI, ICE, CBP and DEA to name a few - called in to assist in Trump’s “domination” of dissenting voices.

They come armed with next-generation surveillance technologies, many of them spying from the skies above, hooked up to inconspicuous drones that can autonomously track people. These devices have cost the U.S. government tens of millions of dollars in the last year alone, according to a Forbes review of contract records.

‘The Selfie Drone’

One has to wonder; how soon will these drones become weaponized to "take out" people who, peacefully, and pointedly, ask "the wrong questions" about what is going on in this country?!?!

SADISTIC RIOT COPS SHOOT INNOCENT WHEELCHAIR-BOUND HOMELESS MAN IN THE HEAD

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST
(Support Free Thought) -

It is important to point out that many of the arrests we are seeing involve violations of unconstitutional curfews which have been enforced across the nation — not actual crimes. When citizens refuse to be silenced and do not go home when told they have to, police begin a process known as kettling which provokes violence by trapping protesters in a fight or flight type situation.

Essentially, people who stay out past the curfew are being kettled by cops who do not allow them to leave and then are tear gassed, pepper sprayed, beaten with batons, and then arrested.

This tactic is highly controversial because multiple instances have captured cops abusing people who are innocent, including the press, and bystanders who are not even participating in the protests — like innocent homeless people in wheelchairs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT THE FLIP WAS LAPD THINKING?!?

Shooting a homeless guy imprisoned in a wheelchair?!?

GOOD LORD!!

POLICE CHIEF FORCED TO RESIGN AFTER SUPPORTING CITIZENS WHO ARMED UP AMID RIOTS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Lowell, Michigan Police Chief Steven Bukala was forced to resign on Thursday after 25 years with the force, after writing on Facebook in support of four young men who armed themselves against potential violent protesters.

Responding to phone calls that 2nd Amendment demonstrators were open carrying down Main Street, Bukala wrote on the Lowell Police Deparment’s Facebook page on Tuesday: "We are aware and no need to call us," adding "We at the Lowell Police Department support the legally armed citizen and the Second Amendment," according to WZZM13.

After a flood of complaints as part of what WZZM says was a "pattern of inappropriate behavior," the city manager told Bukala to resign by 5 p.m. on Friday or be fired at 5:01 p.m.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights were very aware of the ability of governments to mow down various segments of the population who were powerless to rise against it, because they were unarmed.

Legal gun ownership, coupled with responsible people who would not do any harm with a weapon except to defend those they cared about, is something this country cannot afford to lose, and particularly not right now.

PENTAGON WAR GAME INCLUDES SCENARIO FOR MILITARY RESPONSE TO DOMESTIC GEN Z REBELLION

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
In the face of protests composed largely of young people, the presence of America’s military on the streets of major cities has been a controversial development. But this isn’t the first time that Generation Z — those born after 1996 — has popped up on the Pentagon’s radar.

Documents obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a Pentagon war game, called the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program, or JLASS, offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a “Zbellion” in America in the mid-2020s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is always comforting to understand the degree to which the US military "has the backs": of the already monied, and are more than ready to collectively "relieve themselves" on those whose futures have been already been squandered for the rest of us.

Corporate media: proven liars complicit to kill millions, harm billions, loot trillions EVERY YEAR. Demanding .01% arrests yet, or prefer ‘coverage’ by lying sacks of spin?

As a professional historian, my published research is among hundreds documenting corporate media lies to treasonously war-murder human beings in ongoing Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression. These wars are started with lies; not “mistaken intelligence”: propaganda known to be false as they are told. Therefore, and the point of this article: nobody should believe anything corporate media says about anything.

Obviously, the proper citizen response to .01% liars responsible for war-murdering millions, including the direct and treasonous attack on US military to lie them into invading foreign lands to be rightfully attacked by the invaded, is to demand arrests of corporate media “leaders.” This includes those responsible for putting those lies into our “history” textbooks to propagandize our children. The purpose of those lies is perpetual and rapacious US rogue state empire; lying and looting to control natural and human resources for generations.

Sen. Rand Paul: Slapping Someone Could Get You 10 Years In Prison Under Federal 'Anti-Lynching' Bill

Democratic Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker's Orwellian "anti-lynching bill" will allow the feds to throw Americans in prison for 10 years for slapping someone and uttering a racial slur, Senator Rand Paul revealed Thursday.

The bill, which Cory Booker said last year was inspired by Jussie Smollett's supposed "lynching," does not make lynching illegal as it's already illegal but instead creates a new crime called "conspiracy to lynch" that will allow the feds to ramp up mass incarceration for thought crimes.

UK vaccine summit calls for freely available virus vaccine

A vaccine summit hosted by Britain yesterday raised billions of dollars to immunise children in developing countries as experts wrestled with the difficult question of how any potential vaccine against the new coronavirus might be distributed globally — and fairly.

The United Nations and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement have urged that "a people's vaccine" be developed for Covid-19 that would be freely available to everyone, calling it a "moral imperative".

Thursday's event raised $8.8 billion, exceeding its target, for the vaccines alliance GAVI, which says the funds will be used to vaccinate about 300 million children in dozens of countries against diseases like malaria, pneumonia and HPV.

A FEW MUST-SEE VIDEOS FOR AMERICANS — ESPECIALLY "WHITE" AMERICANS

This title was originally "Out of the ashes, a Pheonix."

It only took us days of protesting, eventually involving all 5o states and several other countries, but all four officers involved in the death of George Floyd have finally been charged.

There seems to be reason for hope, despite the added pain and in some cases loss of life that that caused.

If you see only one, see this one:

But you should see more than one if you can. I have curated a selection, not comprehensive by any means, here.

We must fight YouTube's outrageous censoring of lockdown sceptics

For years, there has been a growing concern that Big Tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube which it owns, are not acting like neutral forums where users freely express their opinions. It is now time to say clearly and unequivocally that these are no longer allegations - they are observable facts.

A case in point being a recent discussion with Peter Hitchens on my YouTube show, TRIGGERnometry, in which he criticised the lockdown. Unlike a recent interview with Professor Karol Sikora on the website UnHerd, which was simply deleted by YouTube before being reinstated amid public outcry, the tech giant’s response to our video was far more insidious.

Instead of deleting it and allowing us the right of appeal, they simply “hid” the interview from searches on YouTube and Google.

Auckland George Floyd protest: Police didn't want to create 'tension' at peaceful protest

Police didn't intervene in the Auckland Black Lives Matter protest despite it breaking alert level 2 regulations to avoid creating "tension", it has been revealed.

On Monday, several thousand people attended the rally, sparked by the death of African-American George Floyd in the United States but also racist policing in New Zealand and trials to routinely arm officers.

Under Covid-19 alert level 2 regulations, gatherings of more than 100 people are not permitted, and while organisers before and during the rally urged attendees to keep to two-metre social distancing, the sheer numbers involved made this near impossible.

As images emerged of vocal protesters packed into Aotea Square and later marching down Queen St towards the United States Consulate, opposition politicians said it was an "insult" to New Zealanders who had been following restrictions.

*Funny how we are now going to 'level 1' after this. Ironically, Maori portionantely kill more Maori than anyone.*

PM Ardern and Bloomfield speak on photographs showing breach of social distancing rules

The Prime Minister and director general of health have spoken out on accusations of hypocrisy over social distancing even as police refuse to say whether the pair will be warned over breaching level 2 rules.

It follows the publication by the Herald of photographs showing Ardern posing with well-wishers in Hawke's Bay, and Bloomfield with restaurant staff after a meal.

Northland MP Matt King faced criticism after a similar photograph emerged of him with restaurant staff after a meal out when the country shifted to level 2.

At the time, the Ministry of Health put out a statement telling people to "maintain a 1-metre distance from people they don't know or wouldn't normally come into close contact with, where contact tracing is available".

Test and trace system data to be kept by government for 20 years

The disclosure – coming after ministers rejected a plea from MPs and peers to pass an emergency law to set out clear rules – will heighten privacy fears, on the day the scheme finally got underway.

Information including name, address, date of birth, phone numbers and email addresses, will be collected and stored by the NHS for people with Covid-19, or with symptoms.

Individuals will be able to “ask” for their information to be deleted, but Public Health England has warned “this is not an absolute right” and that it might “need to continue to use your information”.

A new privacy notice states that a private firm, Amazon Web Services, “is providing the secure storage location for the information collected by NHS test-and-trace”.

‘Let’s not excuse violence’: Barack Obama forgets his ENTIRE presidency and argues riots should lead to voting Democrat

As rioters set fire to cities across the US, the country’s first African-American president pretends he hadn’t been in office for eight years to do anything about race relations, and says electing more Democrats is the solution.

The problem with Obama’s message isn’t that it’s partisan, but that it brazenly ignores reality – such as the fact that he was the president for eight years, with full control of those levers of power. Yet somehow the greatest achievements of the Obama Era – Obamacare, Obergefell, DACA, or pushes for transgender rights and Title IX “campus rape culture” rules, to name a few – ended up having nothing to do with racial justice.

Surely it was the Obama administration that passed the First Step Act to give relief to federal inmates, the majority of whom were African-American, from harsh mandatory sentences imposed during the Clinton era? Oh, wait, no, it was the “racist” Donald Trump.

Disney World enlists ‘Star Wars’ Stormtroopers to enforce social distancing

o help enforce social distancing restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, Walt Disney World has enlisted Stormtroopers from “Star Wars.”

On May 20, parts of its Disney World reopened, including outdoor restaurants, entertainment venues and its shopping district, Disney Springs. Visitors must now follow rules that require all guests to wear face coverings, pass fever tests and maintain a distance of 6 feet from other guests whenever possible.

Attractions Magazine shared a video last week of two Imperial soldiers encouraging visitors to “move along” and “stay in your sector” as they patrol from a balcony above a shopping plaza. Pre-recorded banter between the two troopers can be heard over a loudspeaker.

“Hey, you! With the face covering!” yells one Stormtrooper in the video.

“They all have face coverings,” the other mocks.

“Well, we made them all look,” the first trooper responds.

Israel’s Netanyahu Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: Palestinians to be “Subjects,” Not Citizens in Apartheid Annexation

In an interview with corrupt casino mogul Sheldon Adelson’s free newspaper, Israel ha-Yom, Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu said the quiet parts out loud.

Although he did not use the word, he described an Apartheid regime in the Israeli-controlled Palestinian West Bank.

He openly referred to the stateless Palestinians as “subjects.”

Netanyahu will annex the Jordan Valley formally to Israel, where 60,000 Palestinians live and which is one of the areas Israel had pledged to relinquish to the Palestine Authority in the 1993 Oslo Accords. He will also annex the land on which Israeli squatters established settlements in Palestinian territory.

Israel ha-Yom asked, “Q: Nevertheless, several thousand Palestinians live in the Jordan Valley. Does that mean they will receive Israeli citizenship?”

Netanyahu replied:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless, and until, Palestinians become actual citizens of the territory Israel is about to annex in less than one month, they will have zero rights whatsoever, period, end of discussion.

I would like to hope that Palestinian "leadership" (or what passes for it these days), is considering how to accomplish this, peacefully, and soon.

Palestine: Even During a Pandemic, Israeli Soldiers Shoot Holes in Water Tanks at Kafr Qadum

As a result of Israel’s policy, Palestinians in the West Bank suffer severe water shortages and an irregular supply. To alleviate the hardship, residents place water tanks with volumes of 500 or 1,000 liters on their roofs to stock water during supply hours, for use during the many hours when there is no running water.

B’Tselem’s investigation indicates that the shooting is deliberate and has resulted in residents losing hundreds of liters of water. They will now have to purchase expensive new tanks at about 500 NIS (~125 USD) per unit. Since the beginning of April, soldiers have damaged 24 water tanks on rooftops of homes in the village, some more than once. In some homes, water tanks were damaged three or four times over a month and a half.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

B’Tselem is an Israeli peace organisation for which I have the utmost respect.

They will expose the IDF's "dirty tricks" against the Palestinians with absolute, and complete, peaceful courage in these actions, understanding that they, too, may well be putting their lives, and the lives of their families, at risk, because of what they do.

Coronavirus Propaganda Mimics War Propaganda

In the period leading up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, the Bush administration and its media accomplices waged a relentless propaganda campaign to win political support for what turned out to be one of the most disastrous foreign policy mistakes in American history.

So they created a narrative using a mélange of half-truths, faintly plausible fabrications, and outright lies.

Tragically, the American people never placed the burden of proof squarely with the war cheerleaders to justify their absolutely crazed effort to remake the Middle East. In hindsight, this is obvious, but at the time propaganda did its job. Disinformation is part and parcel of the fog of war.

What will hindsight make clear about our reaction to COVID-19 propaganda? Will we regret shutting down the economy as much as we ought to regret invading Iraq?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I would never want to be a Christian Scientist with appendicitis; that being said, I want to, and will, as long as humanly possible, wait until the "Covid-19 Jab" has been around for a while, and is not killing, or destroying, people's immune systems.

GEORGE FLOYD DEATH : Minneapolis police rendered 44 people unconscious with neck restraints in five yearsSeveral police experts said that number appears to be unusually high. "By using this tactic, it's a self-fulfilling tragedy," said one.

Since the beginning of 2015, officers from the Minneapolis Police Department have rendered people unconscious with neck restraints 44 times, according to an NBC News analysis of police records. Several police experts said that number appears to be unusually high.

Minneapolis police used neck restraints at least 237 times during that span, and in 16 percent of the incidents the suspects and other individuals lost consciousness, the department's use-of-force records show. A lack of publicly available use-of-force data from other departments makes it difficult to compare Minneapolis to other cities of the same or any size.

Police define neck restraints as when an officer uses an arm or leg to compress someone's neck without directly pressuring the airway. On May 25, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was captured on video kneeling on the neck of a prone and handcuffed George Floyd for eight minutes — including nearly three minutes after he had stopped breathing.

US gov puts $5 million bounty on Venezuela’s head of crypto

The man responsible for the administration of the petro crypto, Joselit Ramírez, is wanted by the US government over allegations of money laundering and other crimes.

Israeli Defense Minister Preparing for Annexation of West Bank

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on Monday that he ordered the military to start preparing for the coming annexation of parts of the West Bank. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans on annexing Israeli settlements in the West Bank, and parts of the Jordan Valley, a plan bound to face backlash from Palestinians. Netanyahu promised to start cabinet talks on annexation on July 1st.

The areas Israel plans to annex reflects the blueprint of President Trump’s “peace plan” that was released in January. The plan was immediately rejected by Palestinians since it includes the annexation of the Jordan Valley and illegal settlements. The plan also includes Israeli-only access roads in the West Bank, and would essentially legitimize apartheid rule.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Years ago, in various posts on this site, I warned Hamas and Fatah that if all they could accomplish was arguing among themselves, the hunk of land that they would get, to be able to establish a functional Palestine, would be smaller than Lichtenstein; now, because of the way the settlements have been engineered, coupled with this annexation, the Palestinians won't even have that, because there are no more contiguous borders for Palestine.

Folks, this "timetable" for annexation is less than one month away; this is most probably going to get ugly before it's a fait accompli.

GEORGE FLOYD ENDGAME: MARTIAL LAW AND A POLICE STATE

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO

It is disturbing to hear people who should know better describe the George Floyd riots as anarchism. The riots are not anarchistic, they are nihilistic. The people engaged in looting, arson, and widespread assault have zero comprehension of political philosophy.

There are, of course, a whole lot of people demonstrating who are not involved in crime and violence. However, these are the dupes, the idealists routinely exploited by the state and its propaganda media.

Rampaging “anarchists”—many undoubtedly agent provocateurs—are not interested in justice, fairness, nonviolence, and peaceful dialogue. They are providing a pretext to usher in a fascist police state.

The George Floyd riots are problem-reaction-solution exemplified. After Ronald Reagan initiated his “zero tolerance” drug war, the Pentagon began the process of converting local police departments into “thin blue line” paramilitary gangs paid for by know-nothing taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Nimmo is rarely wrong in his predictions; I hope to heck he is on this one, but looking at the way in which the rioting and looting has been allowed to escalate by the Powers that Be, rather than them taking back the streets from the looters, to make them safe for everyone again, this appears to me a distinct possibility.

The next major American holiday falls on 4 July, Independence Day, which is a Saturday this year; please, to all of our readers and listeners, stay safe out there, and stay watchful, particularly if you live in a large, urban area.

THE GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS – 20 UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

SOURCE: OFF-GUARDIAN
As the situation deteriorates all across the nation, we need to stop and ask how we got here.

Racial politics in America are a simmering pot waiting to boil over, they have been for decades. This is only exacerbated as the poverty created by the (totally unnecessary) lockdown starts to hit home.

As the weather gets hot, and jobs dry up and prices skyrocket and the small businesses close…people will get tense. They will get angry.

This is dry tinder which can burst into flames at any moment.

All it took was a spark.

Now the protesters swarm cities all across America, as windows are smashed, shops looted and public buildings set afire. Civilians are being maced and tasered and the rubber bullets are flying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never, in my life, been more grateful for living in a small, rural part of the country than I am now, here in Indiana.

But my heart goes out for innocent people who are getting badly physically hurt out there, and businesses, built over decades by minority entrepreneurs, and others, going up in smoke right now.

Trump Administration Plans $500 Million Arms Sale to Saudi Arabia: Move would give Raytheon licenses to make bombs in Saudi Arabia

The Trump Administration has sent a notification to Congress confirming plans to sell $500 million in weapons to Saudi Arabia in an upcoming round of sales. The plan would include sales of Paveway bombs to the Saudis, and licenses to Raytheon to let them manufacture the bombs directly in Saudi Arabia.

These bombs are part of a 2019 deal in which the Saudis intend to buy 60,000 precision munitions. The deal has continued to face heavy resistance in Congress, in no small part because the Saudis have been committing war crimes with these US-made arms.

Concerns about US culpability in having provided these arms were compounded with the Saudi assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which fueled a substantial political backlash. So far, the Trump Administration has resisted letting Congress block any sales, but each announcement starts the battle anew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the Saudi approach in Yemen is assassinating all native Yemenites, particularly women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, so they can own the country.

Mr. President, by signing off on this deal, you are telling the world that you proudly are signing off on Saudi war crimes, courtesy of US enabling; what the hell kind of message do you think this is sending to the world?!?

Are you so "sheltered" by your toadying advisors, that you don't know this is precisely what the Saudi military will do with these munitions?!?

Mr. President, you have both a world of hurt to try to help to heal, both societally and economically, to the country you alledge you actually govern; so can you please attempt to do some positive governing to resolve those issues, before you treat your weapons developers/massive contributors to yet another windfall in weapons profits?!?

Or do you really relish the title of"Merchant of Death in Chief"?!?

'PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GO HUNGRY': PANDEMIC EFFECTS COULD LEAVE 54M AMERICANS WITHOUT FOOD

SOURCE: THE GUARDIAN
A record number of Americans face hunger this year as the catastrophic economic fallout caused by the coronavirus pandemic looks set to leave tens of millions of people unable to buy enough food to feed their families.

Nationwide, the demand for aid at food banks and pantries has soared since the virus forced the economy to be shutdown, resulting in more than 40m new unemployment benefit claims, according to the latest figures.

As a result, an estimated one in four children, the equivalent of 18 million minors, could need food aid this year – a 63% increase compared to 2018.

Overall, about 54 million people across the US could go hungry without help from food banks, food stamps and other aid, according to an analysis by Feeding America, the national food bank network.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a country with enough wealth and power to make Midas blush, that this possibility even exists, is enough to get your blood boiling, if you care about people at all, which I do, and greatly.

Smith: Why The Public Should Rebel Against Forced Vaccinations

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

The debate over the morality and practicality of forced vaccinations has been raging for many years, long before the coronavirus ever hit the US population. With the advent of the pandemic the narrative has shifted to one of “necessity”. The media and the majority of governments around the world now act as if mass vaccinations are a given; the “debate is over”, as collectivists like to say when they are tired of having to deal with any logical or factual complaints.

The vaccine debate often revolves around the issue of safety. Is a particular inoculation safe or poisonous? Does it have long term effects that are dangerous? Does it harm children with highly sensitive and underdeveloped body systems? These are valid concerns, but ultimately the fight over vaccines has less to do with medical safety or effectiveness and more to do with individual rights vs government demands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I turned 71 this last birthday.

If the government mandates I take a Covid-19 vaccine jab, I will tell them, gently, and politely, thank you, no.

I will also gently remind these people, as Google tells us, "that to date, the US Vaccine Court, has paid off As of October 2019, $4.2 Billion in compensation (not including attorneys fees and costs) has been awarded. Filing a claim with the Court of Federal Claims requires a $250 filing fee, which can be waived for those unable to pay."

IF US vaccines are safe, why has this court had to pay out one dime, let alone 4 billion bucks, when the burden of proof is all on the plaintiffs?!?

The logical short answer has to be, that not all vaccines are as safe as the medical/industrial complex tells us they are; that is simply the reality.

When the Covid-19 jab has been around 10 or 20 years, with no proof of damage to healthy immune systems, I might consider it; but not until then.

German Official Leaks Report Denouncing COVID-19 As "A Global False Alarm"

Authored by Daniele Pozzati via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control after a report that challenges the established Corona narrative leaked from the interior ministry.

Some of the report key passages are:

The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.

The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).

Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ultimately, the whole lockdown, shelter in place, social distancing was simply a ruse upon which the West could use to blame its economic collapse, rather than the corrupted market fundamentals?!?

Sickening, folks; just sickening.

I have a family member, all alone in an assisted living facility, whose adult kids have not been able to see her in months; I am hoping, and praying, that the California lockdown will be over very soon, particularly for her sake, and the sake of her brother and sister residents, all in the same boat.

In this real-world final exam for individual and Earth futures, human beings are at an endgame between Good and Evil.

The Good White Hats work for:
Transparent and verifiable truth of everything.
Justice to stop criminal and psychopathic parasites.
Freedom for synergetic creativity; a first for humanity.

The Evil Black Hats work for:
Dictatorial control of We the Sheeple.
Parasitic evil to engorge themselves.
Culling their slave-race to best manage those “human resources;” killing perhaps 6 billion people as 1 billion slaves are sufficient.

Is public opinion on Covid-19 being shaped by facts – or ‘terrorized’ by propaganda?

To what extent have such non-consensual methods of persuasion – that is to say, propaganda – been used with respect to Covid-19?

It has recently come to light that ‘behavioural scientists’ have been providing advice to the UK government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE). UK Column reports that this group, named the ‘Scientific Pandemic Influenza group on Behaviour (SPI-B)’, was (re)convened on February 13, 2020.

One document produced by this group identifies “options for increasing adherence to social distancing measures,” which include persuasion, incentivization and coercion. In the section on persuasion it states that the “perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging.” The document also mentions using “media to increase sense of personal threat.”

Cornel West: America Is A Failed Social Experiment, Neoliberal Wing Of Democratic Party Must Be Fought

Dr. Cornel West said on Friday we are witnessing the failed social experiment that is the United States of America in the protests and riots that have followed the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. West told CNN host Anderson Cooper that what is going on is rebellion to a failed capitalist economy that does not protect the people. West, a professor, denounced the neoliberal wing of the Democratic party that is all about "black faces in high places" but not actual change. The professor remarked even those black faces often lose legitimacy because they ingriatiate themselves into the establishment neo-liberal Democratic party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You cannot fix something, if you cannot acknowledge it's broken in the first place; and that, as a nation, is where we stand right now, in terms of race relations.

I had the luckiest educational experience of my life, when I attended Cal State Dominguez Hills. It was a "rainbow school", where the students, no matter their ethnicity, got along well, because we all had our collective "eyes on the prize" of a degree, which would get us better opportunities for jobs, at least during that period of time.

What breaks my heart, as an American, is every time another incident like this happens, I keep praying that it will be the last, and that people can collectively learn from their mistakes; but so far, that hasn't seemed to happen.

And the real hell of it is, many African-American businesses have been, and possibly will be, burned to the ground, and their lifetime of work in building that business, will be utterly destroyed.

Congress Is Poised to Pass Far-reaching Israeli Wish ListCongress is set to pass its most far-reaching bill related to Israel at the height of a national public health emergency.

With the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s passage of the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2020 last week, the current Congress is now poised to enact with little transparency its most far-reaching bill related to Israel at the height of a national public health emergency.

This MOU, pledging a record-breaking $38 billion for Israel between 2019 and 2028, solidified President Obama’s legacy as the president most munificent to Israel.

S.3176 would authorize $3.3 billion annually in FMF not as a ceiling, as negotiated by the Obama administration, but as a floor. The bill seeks to do so surreptitiously by amending existing statutory authorization for military aid to Israel by replacing an amount “equal to” with “not less than” $3.3 billion annually.

Israel’s Dirty Little Secret
In other words, if this bill were to become law, then Israel could receive even more weapons at US taxpayer expense than envisaged under Obama’s MOU.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, this bill is absolutely, completely wrong-headed, and demonstrates, uncontrovertibly, to the Arab world, that the US is pathologically incapable of being an honest broker in the Middle East, if it ever was able to do that.

As long as this country has one Vet sleeping rough in our streets, this is way to much money to be paying to a "frenemy" like Israel, whose government consistently and collectively "relieves itself" on the American political class, then tells them it's raining.

USA PLAN: MILITARIZED CONTROL OF POPULATION

SOURCE: VOLTAIRE NETWORK – BY MANLIO DINUCCI

The Rockefeller Foundation has presented the “National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan”, indicating the “pragmatic steps to reopen our workplaces and our communities”. However, it is not simply a matter of health measures as it appears from the title.

The Plan – that some of the most prestigious universities have contributed to (Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins and others) – prefigures a real hierarchical and militarized social model.

The “pandemic response body” would above all have the task of controlling the population with military-like techniques, through digital tracking and identification systems, in work and study places, in residential areas, in public places and when travelling. Systems of this type – the Rockefeller Foundation recalls – are made by Apple, Google and Facebook.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may work in a hyper-urbanized environment; but in very rural America, where Mike and I live?!?

I think that there may be a lot of peaceful, creative non-compliance to prevent such data from even getting in the hands of such a corps, and stay solely between physician and their clients, where it ultimately belongs.

OLIGARCHY, XENOPHOBIA, & SOUL-CRUSHING SURVEILLANCE - YANIS VAROUFAKIS EXPOSES THE DYSTOPIAN 'LOST DECADE’ AHEAD

SOURCE: YANIS VAROUFAKIS VIA PROJECT SYNDICATE
To exorcise my worst fears about the coming decade, I chose to write a bleak chronicle of it.

If, by December 2030, developments have invalidated it, I hope such dreary prognoses will have played a part by spurring us to appropriate action.

Before our pandemic-induced lockdowns, politics seemed to be a game. Political parties behaved like sports teams having good or bad days, scoring points that propelled them up a league table that, at season’s end, determined who would form a government and then do next to nothing.

Then, the COVID-19 pandemic stripped away the veneer of indifference to reveal the political reality: some people do have the power to tell the rest of us what to do. Lenin’s description of politics as “who does what to whom” seemed more apt than ever.

YOUR "IMMUNITY PASSPORT" FUTURE BEGINS TO MATERIALIZE AS AIRLINES CALL FOR DIGITAL ID TRACKING

SOURCE: DERRICK BROZE VIA THE LAST AMERICAN VAGABOND BLOG

The world’s largest airline trade group has called for immunity passports, thermal screening, masks, and physical distancing to be a part of the industry’s strategy for returning to “normal” operations.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents 299 airlines, recently issued their publication, Biosecurity for Air Transport A Roadmap for Restarting Aviation, which outlines their strategy to open up air travel as governments begin to lift travel restrictions.

Under a section titled, “The passenger experience” and “Temporary biosecurity measures,” the IATA describes their vision of post-COVID-19 flights. The organization calls for contact tracing, a controversial method of tracking the civilian population to track the spread of COVID-19.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will simply encourage a lot of people, already strafing at current strictures "necessary for flying post 9/11", to simply drive to their destinations.

Freedom of the press no longer exists in America: CNN reporter arrested, Trump stands idle

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (INTELLIHUB) — Freedom of the press is a thing of the past in America and virtually no longer exists. In fact, things have gotten so bad that even far-left leaning outlets such as CNN have now found themselves in the crosshairs of a tyrannical government that seeks nothing less than to gain full and total control of its citizenry.

Against everything America was founded on, a reported working for CNN and his production team were arrested Friday morning for merely doing their jobs.

The reporter was on air at the time of his arrest conducting what appeared to be a stellar broadcast (not typical for CNN) in which he covered the aftermath of the Thursday night riots.

JAMA Bombshell: "Universal masking may lead to more transmission of Covid-19

A new article published in The New England Journal of Medicine points out that the main benefit of masks is that it eases anxiety of some people, which JAMA points out "may not be strictly logical." Here are some key excerpts from the JAMA article: "We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Focusing on universal masking alone may, paradoxically, lead to more transmission of Covid-19 if it diverts attention from implementing more fundamental infection-control measures...fear and anxiety are better countered with data and education than with a marginally beneficial mask, particularly in light of the worldwide mask shortage, but it is difficult to get clinicians to hear this message in the heat of the current crisis

If there was ever a time in history to pay attention, it’s now. It’s now obvious that we all need to keep our eyes and ears open to that which Big Tech and the government continue to censor to “save us” from “misinformation.” Google Drive, at the request of The Washington Post, has taken down a user’s personal copy of the movie “Plandemic.”

Ever since Big Tech platforms started cracking down on what they deem to be “coronavirus misinformation” (information they don’t want you to know about), the media has been willfully flagging alleged violations to social media companies and getting content taken down, reported News Break.

In other words, they want us to remain in a panic-induced state of fear and only listen to the mainstream media’s official Operation Mockingbird narrative about the entire Plandemic.

Hillary Clinton says lockdown protesters are domestic terrorists

If it were up to failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Americans would be stuck in lockdown forever. And those that are trying to leave their government-erected human cattle pens even now are guilty of “domestic terrorism,” she says.

Speaking against the armed protests taking place in Michigan, Clinton stated that free speech and the First Amendment “cannot be tolerated.” Instead, Americans need to just put on their masks, walk in six-foot-distanced formations at all times, and keep their mouths shut, according to Clinton.

“Armed men storming a legislature to disrupt its democratic proceedings is domestic terrorism,” Clinton wrote in a recent tweet, not from her rightful prison cell but presumably from one of her luxury estates. “It cannot be tolerated.”

Authored by James Rickards via The Daily Reckoning,Remember the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong against Chinese authoritarianism?

And U.S.-Chinese relations could get even worse than they are right now.

Are you prepared for a bumpy ride?

Let’s unpack this…

Last year’s protests came in response to a proposed law that would have allowed the extradition of Hong Kong residents to Beijing for trial on charges that arose in Hong Kong.

That would have deprived Hong Kong residents of legal protections in local law and subjected prisoners to torture and summary execution.

The legislation was proposed by Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam, who many consider a puppet of Beijing.

The demonstrations grew exponentially, ultimately involving hundreds of thousands of protesters.

The list of demands also grew to include more democracy and freedom and adherence to Hong Kong’s rule of law.

Due to social media, these protests were seen around the world.

The proposed bill behind the original protests was scrapped last October, which was a victory for the pro-democracy protesters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; there is nothing you can do directly to assist the people of Hong Kong.

Yes, we understand that you are waging an asymmetric war against China, encouraging separatist movements when you can to run counter to the Communist Party rule.

Xi Jing Pin has just encouraged his military to be ready to immediately "prepare for war" ‘Prepare for war’: China’s Xi Jinping tells army to thwart coronavirus impact on national security The article goes on to state: "Xi Jinping’s speech comes amid rising tension with the US, frequent references by local politicians and diplomats of reunifying Taiwan. Tension is also escalating with India with troops from the two countries clashing along different areas along the 3,488 kilometre-long disputed border."

Mr. President, this is a lousy time to escalate here; we don't have the weaponry; the troop strength; or the manufacturing, in this war-weary, war-skeptical nation. We need to focus on getting this economy opened up, and quickly, and taking care of the people here at home, many of whom have been thrown out of formerly secure work, while major executives have give themselves big bonuses before declaring corporate bankruptcy.

We need to focus on right here, and right now, for as long as you can.

Time To Learn 'Headology': "This Is Not Going To End Well"

Sorry for being bit late this morning, but early morning call with Asia overran. HK is not going to end well.

I am watching the market moves and shaking my head. Up, Up, Down… The Dow broke 3000 on unconstrained optimism before Trump pulled it down with threats of China sanctions.. Shake it all about. Do the hokey cokey...

But, there are some particularly sickening stories out there – including Hertz executives paying themselves $16 mm in bonuses shortly before declaring bankruptcy and laying off 10,000 workers with minimum payments.

USSC 1905 Ruling On Mandatory Vaccines: Jacobson Vs. Massachusetts

Most everyone has seen the recent video in which Alan Dershowitz Says If You Refuse Vaccination, The State Can Plunge A Needle In Your Arm. In the video, Dershowitz, who is purportedly a constitutional expert, claims that no one has a right to refuse vaccination or to refuse to wear a mask during a public health crisis. He invokes the U.S. Supreme Court case of Jacobson vs. Massachusetts, which was decided in 1905.
The Court in a nutshell ruled that despite the fact that Jacobson could certainly find medical experts who agree with his claims opposing vaccines, the vast majority of respected doctors across the world accept vaccination to protect the public health in a pandemic, so a vaccine mandate does not violate his liberty.

Vaccine Expert Testifies to Congress That Coronavirus Vaccine Killed 2 Children

Dr. Peter Hotez Addressing House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Hearing on Coronavirus, March 5, 2020 : "When I say scientific challenge, one of the things we are not hearing a lot about is potential safety problems of coronavirus vaccines. This was first found in the 1960s with respiratory interstitial virus vaccines done in Washington with the NIH and Children's National Medical Center. Some of those kids who got the vaccine did worse and I believe there were two deaths. What happens with certain types of respiratory virus vaccine, to get immunized and when you are exposed to the virus you get this paradoxical enhancement phenomenon. We don't entirely understand the basis of it, that we recognize there's a real problem with certain respiratory virus vaccines. That killed the program for decades and now the Gates foundation is taking it up again, but then we start developing coronavirus vaccines.

Facebook even created a panel to censor the social-media site that is dominated by foreigners who reject free speech and the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.

In the case of YouTube, the Big Tech giant literally said it will remove any content that goes against recommendations made by a corrupt United Nations agency that has been serving as a propaganda megaphone for Communist China. Top UN officials have also stepped up calls for Orwellian online censorship.

In short, the Silicon Valley elites and their Deep State allies want to do your thinking for you and determine what information you get to see — and what information to hide from you. They claim to believe you are too stupid to sort truth from fiction without their help. Seriously.

"Nothing Can Justify This Destruction Of People's Lives"

spiked: You have described the global response to coronavirus as hysteria. Can you explain that?

Yoram Lass: It is the first epidemic in history which is accompanied by another epidemic – the virus of the social networks. These new media have brainwashed entire populations. What you get is fear and anxiety, and an inability to look at real data. And therefore you have all the ingredients for monstrous hysteria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is pretty easy to see, that single country with a lock-down mechanism, is using that lock-down mechanism to justify ever-more Dystopian restrictions on the freedoms of its citizens.

Greece Charges Turkey With 'Land Invasion' After Troops Cross River, Raise Turkish Flag

Via AlmasdarNews.com,

The Greek government recently accused Turkey of seizing some of its territory along its eastern border.

Turkey responded on Saturday by stating that it would not allow de facto borders after Athens complained to Ankara that Turkish forces had seized land at the course of the Evros River that separates the two countries.

A statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry said, “Ankara informed Greece that the river course has changed significantly for natural and artificial reasons, since 1926 when the borders were established, and that the solution requires technical coordination.”

The Daily Mail described of the crisis:

Turkish troops have invaded and occupied a small patch of Greek land Greece on their contested border.

Around 35 soldiers marched on to a floodplain site on the east bank of the River Evros at Melissokomeio yesterday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This justifies a meeting of the UN Security Council just as soon as they can possibly convene; the animosities between Greece and Turkey still smolder, even though there has not been a shooting war between them since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, when Turkey, and Turkish Cypriots, believed that a Greek coup d'etat had taken place there.

 INTERNATIONAL PROPOSALS FOR WARRANTLESS LOCATION SURVEILLANCE TO FIGHT COVID-19

By Katitza Rodriguez and Seth Schoen

Time and again, governments have used crises to expand their power, and often their intrusion into citizens’ lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has seen this pattern play out on a huge scale. From deploying drones or ankle monitors to enforce quarantine orders to proposals to use face recognition or thermal imaging cameras for monitoring public spaces, governments around the world have been adopting intrusive measures in their quest to contain the pandemic.

APPLE IOS 13.5 UPGRADE INCLUDES CONTACT TRACING API

SOURCE: TECHNOCRACY.NEWS
To upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question. Fears of the worst sort are already cropping up as Apple has not made completely clear what software developers will be able to access and use the new core features that allow for Contact Tracing.

One tech journal notes,

Usage of the contact tracing API is user-optional. Additionally, exposure reports require the user to, once again, opt in to the notification, and it can only be done after the positive result is confirmed by one of the government agencies.

The first problem is that many iPhone users don’t have a clue what ‘user-optional’ means and if they do, they forget to disable the feature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My short answer to those questions is, "HELL, no!!"

TAXPAYERS ARE ON THE HOOK FOR 98 PERCENT OF THE FED’S $6.98 TRILLION BALANCE SHEET

Why has the New York Fed run up such a monster balance sheet? It’s because the New York Fed is privately-owned by some of the largest, most dangerous banks in America which, since 2008, have been habitually propped up by cheap money from the New York Fed. Those mega banks include JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

If the New York Fed is privately owned by the member banks in its region (as are all of the 12 regional Fed banks) and has run up a $3.9 trillion balance sheet, its share owners should be on the hook for its liabilities, correct?

This is where another of those rarely discussed structural wealth transfer mechanisms for the one percent comes in. If the Fed and its rapidly growing $6.98 trillion balance sheet blows up, the U.S. taxpayer will be on the hook for 98 percent of the losses…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely staggeringly unbelievable, but perfectly true, unfortunately.

TRUMP APPOINTS BIG PHARMA EXEC CONNECTED TO BILL GATES TO HEAD VACCINE DEVELOPMENTS

SOURCE: THE LAST AMERICAN VAGABOND
On Friday, Donald Trump announced his appointment of Moncef Slaoui, a former executive with vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline, to lead “Operation Warp Speed”, Trump’s plan to fast track the development of vaccines for COVID-19. Slaoui will serve in a volunteer position, assisted by Army Gen. Gustave Perna, the commander of United States Army Materiel Command.

According to the Trump administration, Operation Warp Speed program is focusing on four vaccines, with the hopes of testing and producing 100 million doses by October 2020, 200 million by December, and 300 million doses by January. At Friday’s press conference, Slaoui said he believes the goal of vaccines by January 2021 is a “credible goal”. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was more adamant, stating that, “winning matters and we will deliver, by the end of this year, a vaccine”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) it appears that the guy who, previous to the last election swore to the American voters that he would "drain the swamp" in DC, is surfing in the wake of its pond scum.

Bill Gates has blood on his hands from previous medical trials gone horrifically south, and if President Trump is aligning with one of his minions, in this case, it doesn't at all look good for any kind of vaccine freedom whatsoever.

And there is an article from May of last year, with which you should familiarize yourself: HRSA Vaccine Compensation

The article goes on to state: "How many petitions have been awarded compensation?
According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2017 over 3.4 billion doses of covered vaccines were distributed in
the U.S. For petitions filed in this time period, 6,293 petitions were adjudicated by the Court, and of
those 4,311 were compensated. This means for every 1 million doses of vaccine that were distributed,
approximately 1 individual was compensated.
Since 1988, over 20,629 petitions have been filed with the VICP. Over that 30-year time period, 17,875
petitions have been adjudicated, with 6,551 of those determined to be compensable, while 11,324 were
dismissed. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $4.1 billion.

And remember; all the proof for these cases, rests entirely on the shoulders of the plaintiffs. $4.1 billion is a hell of a lot of money to have had to pay out on allegedly "safe" vaccines.

NETANYAHU SAYS HE HAS BEEN FRAMED AS CORRUPTION TRIAL STARTS

Benjamin Netanyahu professed his innocence at the start of his corruption trial on Sunday, saying he was being framed in the first criminal prosecution of a serving Israeli prime minister.

Flanked by a clutch of cabinet ministers from his right-wing Likud party, and speaking forcefully, Netanyahu appealed to public opinion, addressing television cameras in the courthouse hallway before taking his seat on the defendants’ bench.

“These investigations were tainted and stitched-up from the first moment,” Netanyahu said about charges of bribery, breach of trust and fraud at the centre of three graft cases against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope the prosecution has an iron-clad case here; this man's reign of terror over both Israel - and the Palestinians - needs to come to a peaceful, but definite, end.

..I don't believe the state has our best interests in mind..This country will become a living hell."
