Here's What Would Happen If The Fed Launched Negative Rates

On Thursday, May 7, an unprecedented event took place: after a violent repricing in Eurodollar contracts as near as November 2020, for the first time ever the market was pricing in that negative interest rates are not only coming to the US, but would arrive sometime around the presidential election.

This move prompted a barrage of Fed speakers, including the Fed chair, to remind the public that the Fed really, really, really does not believe in negative rates (but never say never), even though one could say the same thing for the BOJ, the ECB and the SNB... and look at them now. In fact, in a world where growth is only possible with trillions in new debt injections - and with debt already at crushing levels, interest rates have to be as close to zero if not below it - the Fed has emerged as the "rational" outlier that refuses to take rates negative.

Meet Barbara Ferrer, The Social Justice Warrior With No Medical Background Leading LA's COVID Response

At this point, most market participants outside California know LA County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer as the public servant whose "miscommunication" Tuesday afternoon about a three-month extension to her county's stay at home order was blamed for reviving anxieties about the economic reopening in the US that helped hammer stocks lower last week. The good doctor - who, as it so happens, isn't a medical doctor, but the owner of a Ph.D in "Social Welfare" (whatever the f**k that means) - would like you to know she is truly sorry for the error, and the ensuing public furor she accidentally unleashed.

Obamagate Is Not A Conspiracy Theory

Authored by David Harsanyi via The National Review,

Those sharing #Obamagate hashtags on Twitter would do best to avoid the hysterics we saw from Russian-collusion believers, but they have no reason to ignore the mounting evidence that suggests the Obama administration engaged in serious corruption.

Democrats and their allies, who like to pretend that President Obama’s only scandalous act was wearing a tan suit, are going spend the next few months gaslighting the public by focusing on the most feverish accusations against Obama. But the fact is that we already have more compelling evidence that the Obama administration engaged in misconduct than we ever did for opening the Russian-collusion investigation.

How Huxley's X-Club Created Nature Magazine & Sabotaged Science For 150 Years

Authored by Matthew Ehret via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

What is Nature Magazine exactly? Is it truly an “objective” platform for pure scientific research untainted by the filth of political agendas? Is this standard-bearer of “proper method”, which can make or break the career of any scientist, truly the scientific journal it claims to be or is there something darker to be discovered?

Israel Perfecting Surveillance Tech

Israel’s external spy organization Mossad and its internal espionage equivalent Shin Bet have reputations that are much larger than their actual successes, but the one area where they have excelled is electronic intelligence gathering. Recent electronic spying around the White House and other federal buildings in Washington carried out by the Israeli Embassy demonstrates that Israel does not differentiate much between friends and enemies when it conducts espionage. In fact, spying targeting the U.S. is probably its number one priority due to the fact that the Jewish state is so heavily dependent on American support that it feels compelled to learn what discussions relating to it are taking place behind closed doors.

Gates’ Globalist Vaccine Agenda: A Win-Win for Pharma and Mandatory Vaccination

Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feed his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft’s ambition to control a global vaccination ID enterprise) and give him dictatorial control of global health policy.

Gates’ obsession with vaccines seems to be fueled by a conviction to save the world with technology.

Promising his share of $450 million of $1.2 billion to eradicate Polio, Gates took control of India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) which mandated up to 50 doses (Table 1) of polio vaccines through overlapping immunization programs to children before the age of five. Indian doctors blame the Gates campaign for a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) epidemic that paralyzed 490,000 children beyond expected rates between 2000 and 2017. In 2017, the Indian government dialed back Gates’ vaccine regimen and asked Gates and his vaccine policies to leave India. NPAFP rates dropped precipitously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, but in light of his minions' documented screwups, as documented above, I would never willingly allow Bill Gates any position to do anything with public health policy in the US, EVER!!

State Department: Annexation should be part of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks

Israeli deliberations about annexing parts of the West Bank should be part of discussions between Israel and the Palestinians on the Trump administration’s peace plan, the US State Department’s chief spokesperson said Friday.

The comments by Morgan Ortagus, made during a phone briefing with Israeli reporters, came after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a lightning trip to Jerusalem Wednesday for talks with Israeli leaders on a number of issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this woman gone completely tone-deaf, blind, and barking dog mad, simultaneously?!?

With the upcoming annexation, there will be utterly no justice, and no peace, for the Palestinian people, period, end of discussion; and the US has enabled this annexation with its blessing of it!!!

Trump's alleged "peace plan" offered absolutely zero, zip, nada, to the Palestinian people, or what passes for its leadership; and that Jared Kushner believed, for a millisecond, that Palestinians would find the offer of increased financial capabilities, over a return to their homeland, as an "attractive deal" very much telegraphs his own absence of reason (and a critically deliberate misunderstanding of the region's history) on this issue as well.

Remembering 72 years of the Nakba in the shadow of annexation

When Palestinians commemorate the Nakba - the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 - they are not simply remembering a past event in which over 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homeland, over 400 villages and towns destroyed and thousands killed.
They are also marking a continued Nakba (al-Nakba al-Mustimirrah in Arabic) - an ongoing process of erasure and ethnic cleansing which has seen Palestinians ghettoised, fragmented, killed and more.

This year we will be marking 72 years of the Nakba and yet one word seems to be taking front and centre stage: annexation. Ever since the announcement of US President Donald Trump's 'Deal of the Century' at the end of January this year, formal annexation of the occupied West Bank by Israel has been looming.

Indeed, it is rumoured that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Netanyahu on Wednesday was to give the green light for the annexation of the Jordan Valley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since there will be no "two state solution" because of this annexation, the best for which Palestinians can hope, and advocate, (peacefully), is the right to vote, in this new Erez Israel.

And THAT has to happen for the Palestinian people just as quickly as is humanly possible.

Trump says US will beat out Russia and China with 'super duper missile'

Unveiling the flag for his new space force in the Oval Office on Friday, Donald Trump said the US was developing a “super duper missile” to outpace military rivals including Russia and China.

“We have no choice, we have to do it with the adversaries we have out there. We have, I call it the super duper missile and I heard the other night [it’s] 17 times faster than what they have right now,” the president said, sitting at the Resolute Desk.

“That’s right,” said the defense secretary, Mark Esper, standing to Trump’s right.

“You take the fastest missile we have right now,” Trump said. “You heard Russia has five times and China’s working on five or six times, we have one 17 times and it’s just got the go-ahead.”

Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, has indeed announced a hypersonic nuclear missile, meaning one that flies at five times the speed of sound (767mph) or faster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word please; this is not only about a missile's speed; it is about a missile's programmability, once it has been deployed; so would you like to inform the American people, about how well THAT is going at this moment in time?!?

Having one without the other, is an exercise in futility.

Jordan's King Warns "Massive Conflict" Coming If Israel Moves To Annex West Bank

With Washington's backing, Israel is planning to move forward on controversial plans to annex a broad swath of the West Bank, particularly the Jordan Valley, as early as this summer. PM Netanyahu last month issued a likely time table of "within two months".

Arab nations, especially in the gulf, have remained uncharacteristically mum about the whole thing as they focus on countering Iran (which has, it should be noted, actually brought Saudi Arabia into a quiet 'covert' intelligence sharing relationship with Israel over the past couple years).

But Jordan on Friday finally went on the offensive, with King Abdullah telling the German magazine Der Spiegel that Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank “will lead to a massive conflict with Jordan”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what shape such a "massive conflict" with Jordan will take, in light of the fact that it cannot defeat Israel, militarily.

US threatens ICC with ‘consequences’ if it acts on war crimes complaint against Israel filed by ‘fake’ Palestinian state

Arguing that Palestine doesn’t “qualify as a sovereign state” and that the International Criminal Court lacks jurisdiction over Israel, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has threatened “consequences” for any “illegitimate” probes.
Following his trip to Israel this week, Pompeo issued a brief statement, denouncing the ongoing efforts by the ICC to investigate allegations of war crimes against Palestinians, including the use of live ammunition against protesters, the demolition and shelling of civilian homes and infrastructure, and forcible relocations as part of Israel’s settlement projects in the occupied territories.

“The United States reiterates its longstanding objection to any illegitimate ICC investigations,” wrote Pompeo, blasting the ICC as “a political body, not a judicial institution,” and arguing that it has no “jurisdiction over Israel, which like the United States, is not a party to the Rome Statute that created the court.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Having a card-carrying "Rapture-centric" individual as one's Secretary of State, can be hazardous to a Nation's reputation, as well as it's future, no matter how much certain US Evangelicals may cheer him.

Neither Israel or the US are signatories to the ICC, because it is understood by the governments of both countries, that they both commit war crimes, in their quests to obtain their geopolitical agendas.

When a man of the reputation, and moral weight, as has South African Anglican Archbishop Emeritus, and Peace Nobel Laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu, makes the observation that Israel has, or may have committed war crimes, I will believe this guy any day over Secretary of State Pompeo, because as a chief architect of South Africa's move from apartheid to a somewhat more representative government for South Africa's Black population (although, unfortunately, the ANC has failed South Africa utterly), the guy knows what the hell he is talking about.

TRUMP WILL MOBILIZE MILITARY TO DISTRIBUTE CORONAVIRUS VACCINE WHEN IT’S READY

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
Via: CBS:

President Trump says he would “rapidly” mobilize the U.S. military to distribute a coronavirus vaccine once it’s ready, focusing first on nursing homes and the elderly most vulnerable to deadly complications from the virus. Mr. Trump made the comments during an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo.

“We’re mobilizing our military and other forces but we’re mobilizing our military on the basis that we do have a vaccine. You know, it’s a massive job to give this vaccine. Our military is now being mobilized so at the end of the year we’re going to be able to give it to a lot of people very, very rapidly,” the president said.

“We will have a tremendous force because assuming we get it, then you have to distribute it,” he added. “And unless you’re mobilized and ready, you’re not going to be able to do it for a long time. So we’re starting now.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; what "freedom" will the elderly have to say "No, thanks!" to such a vaccine, and how will this play out?!?

I turned 71 last weekend; I am working with my Doctor to find out just how my cardiovascular system is doing, and had some vascular imagery done a couple of weeks ago; the results, to my relief, were quite good; and although I look like the side of the family which had the cardiovascular challenges, like heart attacks and strokes, I apparently have not inherited those challenges.

So what happens when someone says "NO!!" What about someone like Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg, who has had cancer challenges, which she has been able to beat back, thanks to some incredible help from her medical team?

What if the vaccine is rife with immunocompromising adjuvants?!?

These are questions for which I am going to want the answers in spades, before I ever consent to having the vaccine, thank you very much, Mr. President.

And President Trump, please; a cautionary note:

 THE FED HASN’T SPENT A DIME YET FOR MAIN STREET VERSUS $735 BILLION FOR WALL STREET

The stimulus bill known as the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) was signed into law by President Donald Trump on March 27. Among its many features (such as direct checks to struggling Americans and enhancing unemployment compensation by $600 per week for four months to unemployed workers so they could pay their rent and buy food) the bill also carved out a dubious $454 billion (or 25 percent of the total $1.8 trillion spending package) for the U.S. Treasury to hand over to the Federal Reserve. This was the Faustian Bargain the Democrats had to agree to in order to get the deal approved by the Wall Street cronies in the Senate.

When pressed about the concern that wearing a mask may help stop the spread, Vitale stated, “They told us not to wear masks for almost 6 weeks, then did a 180. Many doctors disagree and say a healthy person wearing a mask could actually be harmful.

(INTELLIHUB) — Washington State Governor Jay Inslee announced at a press briefing on Tuesday that a standing army of contact tracers along with members of the National Guard will we identifying and immediately quarantining Washintonians infected with COVID-19 and any individuals who have come in contact with the infected.

The governor made it clear during the briefing that all contacts of the infected will be quarantined ahead of time “even before they have had a positive test.”

Hundreds of Children Brain Damaged by the Swine Flu Vaccine to Receive $90 Million in Financial Compensation from UK Government

First published in April 2015. The H1N1 vaccine fiasco ordered by the (corrupt) WHO Director General is of relevance to the current debate on a COVID-19 vaccine.

****

The 2009 swine flu vaccine caused severe brain damage in over 800 children across Europe, and the UK government has now agreed to pay $90 million in compensation to those victims as part of a vaccine injury settlement.

This is the same swine flu vaccine that the entire mainstream media ridiculously insists never causes any harm whatsoever. From the quack science section of the Washington Post to the big pharma sellout pages of the New York Times, every U.S. mainstream media outlet exists in a state of total vaccine injury denialism, pushing toxic vaccines that provably harm children.

“Across Europe, more than 800 children are so far known to have been made ill by the vaccine,” reports the International Business Times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a cautionary tale, and one of which thinking Americans, particularly if they have kids, should be considering if the US government is going to mandate Covid-19 immunizations.

And if there is an insert you can get from the Manufacturer, when the Covid-19 vaccine does come out, please check, and see if the above-referenced adjuvants are listed as included.

On The Battleground Of The Virus, The Fox Laughs Last

Authored by Alastair Crooke via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Today, there are two irreconcilable visions of American life. After 1992, the two parties alternated presidents every eight years. Yet, with each succeeding administration, the political milieu has grown yet more rancorous and divided. There is no relationship between parties now — save as sworn enemies, Vlahos observes.

In this context of a ‘nation fissured’, the U.S. military have issued some catchy posters, urging national unity and the wearing of face-masks. (They can be seen here). And they all crib a notably nostalgic WW2 style: “It’s a woman’s war too”; “Fight the spread of coronavirus”, and “Let’s all fight” (as a GI lunges forward, in attack mode, his gleaming bayonet fixed).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a question which no one in the White House seems to want to answer, with this "blaming China" meme regarding the origin of Covid 19; at what point will the Chinese leadership believe that they are going to have to "do something" to save face (a big thing in Asian cultures), and what will that "something" be?!?

And let's get real; the economy was tanking far before the first diagnosed cases of Covid 19 appeared; it just took countries' responses to this, to push the world economy on its head into near-collapse.

NZ Controversial bill passed to enforce alert level 2 powers

A bill giving police sweeping powers to potentially (can) enter homes without warrants while enforcing Covid-19 alert level rules has passed.

The Covid-19 Public Health Response Bill was rushed through Parliament in time for alert level 2 but came under intense scrutiny from the Opposition.

It passed 63 votes in favour with 57 against.

The National Party and Act didn't support the bill, saying it was an overreach of powers, distrusted New Zealanders and didn't allow for orders to have proper scrutiny.

But the Government said it was necessary to ensure the continued fight against Covid-19 and created more accountability, not less.

Pompeo, Netanyahu ‘two mobsters’ plotting Palestine’s eradication: Analyst

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Israel to discuss the Zionist regime’s planned annexation of the West Bank region with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is like the gathering of two “mobsters” plotting to eradicate Palestinians from their indigenous homeland, says an American political analyst.

Rodney Martin, a former congressional staffer based in Arizona, made the comment during a phone interview with Press TV on Monday, while commenting on an announcement by the US State Department that Pompeo will visit the occupied territories on Wednesday to discuss “regional security issues” linked to “Iran’s malign influence” as well as the Israeli annexation of much of the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately the guy is entirely correct in his assessment here.

Palestinians have, for far too long, been "saddled" with leadership which would neither lead, or work to achieve some kind of status for Palestinians, other than being "the others" in Israeli-occupied Palestinian land, enriching themselves in the process.

A number of years ago I posted that if Palestinian leadership continued arguing among themselves, if there was ever a Post-Balfour Declaration of an actual state of Palestine, it wouldn't be even the size of Lichtenstein; now even that possibility has been completely destroyed, and the US "blessing' for this annexation is not helpful in any way.

And could someone please explain to me precisely how this "malign Iranian influence" could possibly hurt Israel's security, in any way, shape, or form?!? Israel is a nuclear armed nation, with one of the most impressive military and weaponry capabilities in the world, for heaven's sake!!

Iran is not a threat here; in fact, many Iranian Jews living there do not want to "make aliyah" to Israel, because they are perfectly content to be where they are. Celebrating Sabbath With Iran's Jewish Minority

The only "threat" here, is economic, and definitely not existential, between Israel and Iran. Netanyahu could, should he feel like it, create a peace and trade treaty with the government in Tehran, and come home to a hero's welcome, but that won't happen until pigs fly; unfortunately, the Israeli government loves to create an atmosphere of fear among their citizens, belligerently reminding them in no uncertain terms, that there are always things to be feared from their Muslim neighbors, particularly the Iranians.

Israel's grudge with Iran has to do with it having not only survived the 1979 revolution, but actually thriving economically, in spite of US-engendered sanctions.

"OBAMAGATE!" Trump Tweets Tucker Carlson's Crushing Breakdown Why The Former President Should Be Panicking

Why is former President Obama calling forth all his defensive resources now? Why did former national security advisor Susan Rice write her CYA letter? Why have republicans in congress not been willing to investigate the true origins of political surveillance? What is the reason for so much anger, desperation and opposition from a variety of interests?

In a single word in a single tweet tonight, President Trump explained it perfectly - with help from Fox News' Tucker Carlson's detailed breakdown" "OBAMAGATE!"...

As around 2:15 in the clip above, Carlson explains that then president of the United States Barack Obama turned to the head of the FBI - the most powerful law enforcement official in America, and said "Continue to secretly investigate my chief political rival so I can act against him."

Comey's response? "Yes, sir."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There you have it, folks; the reality of President Obama's Machiavellian proclivities are about to crash right into the open, to the shock (and for some, amusement) of American onlookers.

You have to admit, he absolutely DID have "the cool factor" down brilliantly, and was terrifically well-spoken; but beneath that facade was the mind of a man hell-bent on destroying all he saw as his "political enemies", no matter the cost to the American Constitution and systems of government, very much as did his predecessor, President Nixon.

President Nixon's hubris, ultimately destroyed his career as President of the United States; in light of the fact that President Obama is now out of office, the only thing this information can do, is taint his legacy with such a foul cloud of toxicity, that any good he actually did for the American people, will be nullified by any future reading of his time in office, and what he asked of his minions still in government, upon leaving it.

At a time when containing COVID-19 outbreaks and combatting the severest economic collapse in modern memory matter most, the Trump regime blocked a proposed global ceasefire Security Council resolution to assure no interference in its imperial wars on humanity.

Russia strongly supports what Trump regime hardliners oppose, Kremlin UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia saying the following:

“In view of the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation is urging all parties to regional armed conflicts to immediately stop hostilities, secure a ceasefire, and introduce a humanitarian pause,” adding:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, in the face of all these US-generated wars, and a national debt big enough to choke a horse, if the US will balkanize, and bits and pieces go their own way peacefully.

Everything has a life cycle, even governmental systems; ours has become broken; corrupt; highly immoral; and doesn't really give a damn what its citizens think about its actions.

The word that comes to mind is "accountability"; at this point in its devolution, the only "accountability" this government has is to the thoroughly monied, and the war machine which supports it.

At 71, I am very tired of being a citizen of a country which finds it pathologically incapable of not creating war crimes in those areas of the world it has "neutralized", in order to extract the wealth from those areas, and have that wealth sold only for US dollars.

The cycle is painfully clear to see, for anyone with even half a brain; but what is also clear to me is that the empire of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, is coming to a screeching halt in the not too terribly distant future.

The big question is, how will it unravel?!? And that... is where US citizens, particularly the "adults in the room" need to sit up, and take notice. How are you going to work, take care of your kids, and give them the future you want to see them be able to achieve and accomplish, when everything breaks down?!?

I would politely suggest that the time to consider these issues, and the coming crisis regarding American identity... is now.

Holy Land: Heads of Churches Voice Concern About Israel’s Planned Annexation of West Bank Land

As a result of the stagnation of the Peace Process in the Middle East between the Israelis and Palestinians, an array of plans for Israel to unilaterally annex West Bank land, backed mainly by right-wing factions, raises serious and catastrophic questions about the feasibility of any peaceful agreement to end the decades’ long conflict, one that continues to cost many innocent lives as part of a vicious cycle of human tragedy and injustice.

The Council of Patriarchs and Heads of the Holy Land Churches views such unilateral annexation plans with the utmost concern and calls upon the State of Israel to refrain from such unilateral moves, which would bring about the loss of any remaining hope for the success of the peace process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think it was very brave, indeed, for these men to sign their names to this document; both brave, and extraordinarily naive.

And I say this because, throughout its history, Israel has shown no genuine appetite for peace, whatsoever, but only for territory, and by any means necessary.

When this annexation happens, look for massive Palestinian deaths and maimings at the hands of Israel's IDF; their sharpshooters are among some of the best in the world at blowing up childrens' limbs, killing them outright, or maiming them in such a way that they will never fully recover, no matter whether or not they were innocent of any alleged "crime".‘I remember the knee in the crosshairs, bursting open’ – Israeli snipers boast of shooting ‘ducks’ in Gaza

To the Palestinians whose lands are being annexed, you must begin to (peacefully) demand the right to vote in Israel; because without the vote, in these new areas of Israel, you will have zero say in the decisions which will affect your daily lives, and those of your kids.

Video: Here’s Why Bill Gates Wants Indemnity for Vaccines – Are You Willing to Take the Risk?

Why are the world’s top vaccine promoters, like Paul Offit and Peter Hotez, frantically warning us about the unique and frightening dangers inherent in developing a coronavirus vaccine?

Scientists first attempted to develop coronavirus vaccines after China’s 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak. Teams of US & foreign scientists vaccinated animals with the four most promising vaccines.

At first, the experiment seemed successful as all the animals developed a robust antibody response to coronavirus. However, when the scientists exposed the vaccinated animals to the wild virus, the results were horrifying.

Vaccinated animals suffered hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout their bodies terminating with fatal lung infections. Researchers had seen this same “enhanced immune response” during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1960s. Two children died.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer to that last question?!? HELL, NO!!

Report: Child soldiers deployed to Libya by Turkish-backed Syrian National Army

Factions of the Turkish-backed opposition Syrian National Army are recruiting minors to fight in Libya, according to a report laying out in exhaustive detail Turkey’s use of Syrian rebels to prop up Libya’s Government of National Accord.

The 40-page document, prepared by Syrians for Truth and Justice and shared exclusively with Al-Monitor, cites sources on the ground in Syria and in Libya who say Syrian teenagers have been recruited and are part of their units in the battlefield. The report will be published Monday by the nonpartisan not-for-profit organization, which documents human rights abuses in Syria.

The children are among well over 2,000 Syrian rebels believed to have been deployed over the past year via Turkey in support of the Government of National Accord against the eastern warlord Khalifa Hifter, who is backed by Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The recruiting of child soldiers is another very sick practice, which should also be banned internationally.

Teenagers should be getting an education; not carrying rifles with which to defend empires, period, end of discussion!!

As coronavirus spreads in Egypt, Sissi sees opportunity to tighten his grip

CAIRO - Egypt's military-backed government is using the coronavirus pandemic to tighten its grip on the country, human rights activists say.

In recent weeks, authorities have ordered up punishments, including prison terms, for anyone they accuse of contradicting official accounts about the pandemic. Political opponents have been linked to the virus and targeted. And under coronavirus-related restrictions, political prisoners are more isolated than ever from the world as the virus threatens them.

On Friday, President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi approved amendments to the nation's emergency law, giving himself and security agencies additional powers. The stricter measures, the government claims, are needed to address a legal "vacuum" and prevent the spread of covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

But activists say some of the measures open the door to more abuses of rights and freedoms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Sissi has turned "gangster" as President, and now considers himself a dictator, running Egypt as his own personal fiefdom for himself and his cronies; this does not augur well for peace, either inside the country, or in the entire region.

War in Yemen forces more girls into child marriage

An extraordinary case of child marriage in Yemen has highlighted the rising number of forced, underage weddings. In rare instances, women have managed to fight back, reports Safia Mahdi from Sana'a.

When 12-year-old Hind visited her father in jail a few months ago, he told her she was to marry a fellow inmate. Her groom, 30, had been sentenced to death for drug smuggling and possession, but they would get married anyway, she was told.

When Hind's mother managed to get a court order cancelling the marriage contract, her story became one of the rare cases of reprieve in Yemen, where the rate of child marriage is rising rapidly.

There is still no clear law regulating the minimum age for marriage in Yemen and many girls are forced to marry at ages considered too young to allow for their consent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Child marriage is one of the worst forms of child abuse inflicted on young girls, and should be universally banned.

Israel government swearing-in delayed a day by Pompeo visit: officials

The swearing-in of Israel's new unity government has been postponed by one day to Thursday due to the upcoming visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, officials said.
A parliament spokesman said the joint administration of incumbent premier Benjamin Netanyahu and his former rival Benny Gantz would be inaugurated on Thursday instead of Wednesday.

A spokesman for Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party told AFP the delay was "because of the visit" of the US top diplomat on Wednesday.

Pompeo's trip comes as US President Donald Trump's administration gives its blessing to Netanyahu's plans to annex much of the occupied West Bank, despite warnings from the Palestinians that the move will kill the prospects of a long-term peace agreement.

Israel's new government is the result of a deal allowing Netanyahu to continue on as prime minister for another 18 months, before the former military chief Gantz takes over the post for the same period.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the Palestinians whose lands are being annexed in this move, please remember what the most important thing your (alleged) leadership can do right now; peacefully negotiate for the right to vote in Israeli elections, when this land becomes Israel's by decree in July.

Otherwise, this annexation will, most assuredly, produce for you a series of Israeli "Bantustans" like those of the old apartheid government of South Africa, where Africans who were not of European descent, were unable to vote, or have any meaningful participation in decisions affecting their lives whatsoever.

New investigation reveals shocking extent of torture in Saudi women's prisons

A documentary by Al Jazeera revealed shocking testimonies from female former detainees about the extent of torture and sexual harassment in Jeddah's Dhahban Central Prison.Tags:Dhahban, torture, women's rights, prison.
A new documentary broadcast on Al Jazeera's Arabic channel has uncovered terrifying details about the torture of female prisoners in Saudi Arabia.

The film presents a selection of testimonies from former detainees of Jeddah's Dhahban Central Prison, revealing rampant physical and psychological torture as well as sexual harassment during interrogation sessions.

Dhahban Prison is where a number of prominent Saudi women's rights activists have been arbitrarily detained since a sweeping campaign of arrests in May 2018.

The activists have previously complained about sexual harassment, torture and other forms of mistreatment during interrogation, however, the documentary is the first of its kind in airing direct testimonies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would strongly and politely suggest to President Trump, that he may well want to pick his international "friends" just a little more carefully than he has with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

This torture of women is apparently what the guy has signed off upon, and if it has happened under MBS's watch, he must have approved it, and continues to approve it.

This is one of the myriad of reasons you would never get me, willingly, to go to Riyadh; being a Christian, and a woman, is enough to get one tortured and killed, under this barbaric regime's watch.

In fact, as noted in the following article last month, people in the international community are beginning to sit up and take notice. This article was published at justsecurity.org, last month: Ending Impunity: Now Is the Time for a UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights Situation in Saudi Arabia

The article goes on to state: "One cannot deny that Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, not stellar to begin with, has been worsening, especially after Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) was made Crown Prince in 2017. Since then, the regime has systematically silenced any dissent and has racked up a worrying toll of human rights violations, against both Saudi and foreign citizens. Saudi authorities act with total impunity with the international community looking on. This can no longer be tolerated, nor go unpunished: an essential first step is establishing a United Nations independent expert to monitor the human rights situation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), in the form of a special rapporteur.

Saudi policy continues to incorporate torture, murder, and restrictions on fundamental rights and freedoms, including the right to life, freedom of expression and opinion, freedom of assembly and association, freedom of belief and movement, women’s rights, minority rights, and migrant workers’ rights, coupled with alleged war crimes in Yemen. Saudi authorities persistently persecute peaceful activists by labelling them as terrorists or agitators and using anti-terror and security laws against them, following a pattern of rife violations. Suspects are often beaten to extract confessions; they are denied access to legal support and family visits; they are exposed to corporal punishment; and remain in excessively protracted pre-trial detention, with any pleas for fair investigation of these violations falling on the deaf ears of judicial authorities."

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SUGGESTS MICROCHIPPING KIDS, SLAMMED BY EXPERTS

SOURCE: JPOST
Cyber experts slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his proposal to "microchip" children who return to schools and kindergartens as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted, Ynet reported on Friday.

While speaking at a press conference on Monday, Netanyahu suggested the Health Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state is lifting the coronavirus lockdown. "That is, technology that has not been used before and is allowed under the legislation we shall enact," he clarified.

"I spoke with our heads of technology in order to find measures Israel is good at, such as sensors. For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars," the prime minister said.

THE BOTCHED INFILTRATION OF VENEZUELA LEAVES GUAIDÓ TAINTED BEYOND REPAIR

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
The latest chapter in the ongoing effort to overthrow the Venezuelan government reads like a bad spy thriller: a group of mercenaries piloted speedboats from Colombia to Venezuela; half of them were killed or captured by Venezuelan security forces immediately upon landing, while the other half – apparently delayed by mechanical issues with their boat – surrendered to local police and militia the next day. Thirty-nine attackers have been captured so far, including two Americans, both former special forces soldiers. Their plan was to capture or kill high-value targets, including Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. Instead, it failed miserably and raised more concerns about the leadership of opposition figure Juan Guaidó.

Guaidó’s Insidious Contract

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Ron White was fond of saying in his stand-up routine, "You can't fix stupid"; and anyone with more than 2 brain cells circulating in their heads within spitting distance of whoever in this administration signed off on this insanity, HAD to understand that Maduro's security has become increasingly sophisticated in their understanding of how these efforts are supposed to work.

"Plausible deniability"?!? In two short words, HELL, NO!!!!!

And here are a couple of companion pieces, from antiwar.com:

Venezuelan TV Exposed Failed Incursion OVER A MONTH before it happened.

US government wants release of two Special Forces Veterans who lead failed Coup/Invasion of Venezuela And THAT, my friends, will be the moment when pigs discover they are aerodynamic!!

One last statement, coming from globalresearch.ca from China:

China Will Not Accept Any US Invasion in Venezuela: Spokeswoman Hua Chunying The article goes on to state: "China repudiates the United States’ attempt of a naval invasion of Venezuela and all interventionist maneuvers against the sovereignty of any country.

Through a statement, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, stressed again this Wednesday her rejection of the United States’ aggression against Venezuela and has emphasized that Beijing will not accept any US invasion plan in the South American country.

“We reject the violation of the sovereignty of Venezuela by any means or excuse, in addition, we call to prioritize the welfare of the people, work together to safeguard national stability and promote the peaceful resolution of the situation in the Caribbean country,” stressed the spokeswoman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

China, reads the note, has always been in favor of respecting the Charter of the United Nations (UN) and the basic rules that govern international relations against the policies of hostility of the United States towards the Maduro government." No gray area here, President Trump; so what are you going to do to Venezuela now?!?

By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, Children’s Health Defense:
"Dr. Mikovits joined NIH in 1980 as a Postdoctoral Scholar in Molecular Virology at the National Cancer Institute and began a 20-year collaboration with Frank Ruscetti, a pioneer in the field of human retro virology. She helped Dr Russetti isolate the HIV virus and link it to #AIDS in 1983. Her NIH boss Anthony Fauci delayed publication of that critical paper for 6 months to let his protégé Robert Gallo replicate, publish and claim credit. The delay in mass HIV testing let AIDS further spread around the globe and helped Fauci win promotion to director NIAID."

US sets up new military base in Syria’s oil-rich Dayr al-Zawr: Report

The United States has reportedly established a new military base in Syria’s oil-rich eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr after bringing in reinforcements to the war-torn Arab country.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) quoted reliable sources as saying on Friday that the new US base is located in Day al-Zawr’s al-Jazrat area.

The US-based monitoring group reported that more than 300 trucks, carrying ammunition, weapons, military and logistical supplies, had entered Syria over the past few days and that most of those trucks headed to al-Jazrat.

It further said the US forces are expanding their base in the al-Omar oil field in the eastern countryside of Dayr Al -Zawr.

Recently, it added, American soldiers and other US-led coalition troops had arrived at the base.

Washington runs several military bases in Syria, mainly in northern and eastern regions where the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are operating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact these reports are true, one has to wonder just how long Russia's Putin will allow this nonsense to continue before something dramatic happens here, and US troops are "cheek to jowl" with Russian troops on the ground in Syria.

And please remember; Russia has weapons and munitions which actually do work as advertised.

Saudi Arabia Running Out Of Money: Riyadh To Slash Spending By $27 Billion, Suspend Cost Of Living Allowance

Last weekend we quoted Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan, who warned that the world's biggest oil exporter hasn’t witnessed "a crisis of this severity" in decades, adding that government spending will have to be cut "very deeply", something we touched on previously.

We didn't have long to wait, because early on Monday, the Saudi government - which appears to be running out of money fast - ordered government spending cuts including suspending the cost of living allowance amid broad austerity measures for about $26.6 billion and a tripling of the value-added tax as part of measures aimed to shore up state finances, which have been battered by low oil prices and the coronavirus.

"Cost of living allowance will be suspended as of June first, and the value added tax will be increased to 15% from 5% as of July first," said the Saudi finance minister according to the state news agency, suggesting Saudi Arabia is on the verge of a full-blown fiscal crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: will this financial crisis ultimately be enough to topple the House of Saud as the country's leadership, and replace it with a somewhat democratic regime?!?

"We Sent Them Samples Of A Goat, A Papaya & A Pheasant": Tanzanian President Catches WHO In Epic Lie

As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases explodes across Africa, the creeping involvement of the WHO has made some leaders suspicious of the NGO. Tanzanian President John Magufuli was growing suspicious of the organization, so he reportedly decided to investigate whether the organization was as trustworthy and reliable as it claimed to be.

He played what the local press described as "a trick" on the organization: He sent the WHO samples of a goat, a papaya and a quail for testing.

All three samples reportedly tested positive. When the president heard the news, he reportedly confronted the WHO, then kicked the organization out of the country. Though, to be sure, the WHO has yet to comment on the situation.

Google’s Monopoly on Speech

“Don’t be evil” was explicit to Google’s motto and code of conduct for some 15 years. In 2015, Google updated its motto to “Do the right thing.” Today, Google, which owns YouTube, seems to have altered its motto to “Be evil” or “Do the wrong thing”—including censoring free speech of doctors, scientists, professors, politicians and journalists whose ideas differ from those of Google executives.

“This is the next step in the evolution of the Internet,” former Google CEO Eric Schmidt lauded Google’s purchase of YouTube for $1.65 billion in 2006. We now know Schmidt’s definition of Internet “progress” ostensibly centers around inducing users to think like him—by using YouTube to push assenting views and censor differing perspectives under the guise of legality or neutrality.

1.4 MILLION PEOPLE TO DIE FROM UNTREATED TB DUE TO CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN

SOURCE: SUMMIT.NEWS
Around 1.4 million people are expected to die from untreated TB infections due to the coronavirus lockdown, according to research published by Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University.
“Up to 6.3 million more people are predicted to develop TB between now and 2025 and 1.4 million more people are expected to die as cases go undiagnosed and untreated during lockdown,” reports the Guardian.

The figures are based on the premise of a 3 month lockdown and a 10-month period of restoring services after lockdown is lifted.

Lucica Ditiu, head of a global partnership to end tuberculosis, said she was “sickened” by the revelation and that the situation would set back global efforts to end TB by eight years.

Standard Pontius Pilate response. Of course, the US government and its private sector “partners” in the subversion business (in this case, Silvercorp USA) are behind this miniaturized Bay of Pigs operation.

The fall guy is Jordan Goudreau, “a former member of the US Army special forces” who has, according to the BBC, “been quick to claim an association” with the captured US mercenaries.

As should be expected, the BBC watered down the significance of the event by characterizing it as a “speedboat incursion.”

From the UPI:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish that the government of the country of which I am a citizen could possibly, please, stop lying to its people and the world; of course, that has not been, nor is it likely in the future, that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika will do such a thing.

And folks, please remember; just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this government could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that it will not do it; there is no real plausible deniability here, and the White House knows this, so they are desperately trying to change the subject.

NIGERIA: BILL GATES OFFERED HOUSE OF REPS $10M BRIBE FOR SPEEDY PASSAGE OF COMPULSORY VACCINE BILL – CUPP ALLEGES

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), on Monday, alleged that it has intercepted a human intelligence report that the Nigeria House of Representatives leadership was poised to forcefully pass the compulsory vaccine bill without subjecting it to the traditions of legislative proceedings.

In a statement issued and signed by the spokesperson of the opposition political parties, Barrister Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere and sent to DAILY POST in Abuja on Monday, the body urged lawmakers in the lower chamber to rise against impunity.

The body in the statement alleged that a sum of $10 million was offered by the American Computer Czar, Bill Gates to influence the speedy passage of the bill without recourse to legislative public hearing, a development they averted as anachronistic, adding that the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila should be impeached if he forces the bill on members.

HEAVILY MILITARIZED SWAT RAIDS INNOCENT FAMILY FOR GROWING TOMATOES—TAXPAYERS HELD LIABLE

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT

Leawood, KS — Adlynn and Robert Harte and their two children had harmed no one and broken no laws when heavily armed militarized SWAT deputies with the Johnson County sheriff’s department stormed their home like it was an ISIS compound. The “hero” deputies were searching for evidence of marijuana production and use but they found none because the Harte’s don’t use or produce marijuana. They do grow vegetables, however, and they also drink tea.

The Hartes and their two children were held at gunpoint and nearly killed for purchasing supplies for their vegetable garden and drinking tea. After they were seen buying gardening supplies, cops rummaged through their trash and mistook tea leaves for weed, sparking ‘probable cause’ for the raid. Since the raid in 2012, the Harte family has been attempting to seek justice but to no avail. This month, however, they finally got a break.

UN RAPPORTEUR ON TORTURE ‘SCARED TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR DEMOCRACIES’ AFTER DELVING INTO ASSANGE CASE

SOURCE: RT
Discovering that the cruelty visited on Julian Assange by Western democracies had been premeditated has heightened the fear of learning more about how those democracies operate, the UN’s rapporteur on torture has admitted.
For years Nils Melzer has been researching on behalf of the UN just how vile and degrading the mistreatment of prisoners can become. But learning that states that are supposed to be champions of human rights can be as brutal as any other with people who cross them was quite a shock. The case that made Melzer reassess his beliefs is that of Julian Assange, who, he says, had signs of "prolonged psychological torture" while in the UK.

“First I was shocked that mature democracies could produce such an accident. Then I found out it was no accident. Now, I am scared to find out about our democracies…” the UN official tweeted on Sunday, marking a year since his visit to check on Assange at the UK’s Belmarsh top security prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason why Assange is still in prison, and subjected to psychological torture, is that he embarrassed the US government; nothing more, nothing less.

And remember; nothing Wikileaks has ever published, has ever been successfully and logically refuted.

Bill Gates' Plan to Vaccinate the World

In January of 2010, Bill and Melinda Gates announced a $10 billion pledge to usher in a decade of vaccines. But far from an unalloyed good, the truth is that this attempt to reorient the global health economy was part of a much bigger agenda. An agenda that would ultimately lead to greater profits for big pharma companies, greater control for the Gates Foundation over the field of global health, and greater power for Bill Gates to shape the course of the future for billions of people around the planet.

People of a certain age might remember the old John Birch Society slogan “Support your local police!” The idea here is that your local policeman is a liberty-loving buddy of yours who would only ever support just laws and constitutional mandates. Only those bad guys in the FBI or BATF would ever consider violating your rights.

Now, obviously that has always been a rather naïve fantasy, but the notion certainly has a long history of support among American conservatives. The idea that unionized, well-paid government employees sympathize with the common man instead of with the government that signs the cops’ checks apparently has long made sense (for some reason) to conservatives and many others.

"Your Every Move Will Be Watched": Post-COVID Offices To Resemble China's Social Credit System

We recently detailed how when America's white collar work force returns to their offices, business complexes, and sky scrapers, their experience in the post-COVID 'reopened' work space is likely to resemble something more like an airport security check zone, complete with invasive protocols like frequent temperature checks and 'social distancing' and health surveillance, as well as Plexiglass enclosed cubicles and HR-style enforcement monitors.

If all that sounds like a hassle, the WSJ has since taken up the question of America's near-future office spaces, and the end result looks to be worse than expected. "Your every move will be watched," the report emphasizes:

In Midtown Manhattan, thermal cameras will measure body temperatures as employees file into a 32-story office tower at Rockefeller Center. The building’s owner, RXR Realty, said it is also developing a mobile app for tenants to monitor — and score — how closely their workers are complying with social distancing.

Governments may see immunity passports as a way of reopening societies, but they’re a plunge towards totalitarianism

The idea of immunity passports is gaining in popularity among Western governments. But they are fraught with problems, from their implementation to their functionality. Above all, they’re a grave threat to fundamental freedoms.

The Science Of Fear: How The Elites Use It To Control Us & How To Break Free

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Fear is one of the most powerful tools the elites have at their disposal. Using the mainstream media, politicians and others who want world domination can inject fear into the public at the drop of a hat, making them easy to manipulate and control.

Aristotle once said: “He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.” Fear is a powerful weapon, and it’s been used globally for the past few months. People have shown that the instant the media tells them to live a life scared in their homes, they will comply in order to “stay safe.” Whether the virus is real or not, is not the point. The elitists must keep the public in a constant state of panic in order to control them. Unafraid and compassionate people are impossible to control.

Unfortunately and unsurprisingly, the propaganda was injected into schools to eliminate critical thinking.

Surviving 2020, Part 2: Rubber Meets Road

I received this timely inquiry from astute reader Paul B.:

I'm interested in # 1, while you seem to take into account 300 million people in your writings--would you comment on rubber-meets-the-road impacts and proactive actions we can take to help shield ourselves (and our local communities) from the economic problems we're facing?

Would you consider including concrete actions "average" people could take to protect themselves in one of your future columns? I'd certainly appreciate it and I bet many others would, too. (emphasis added, CHS)

That's big challenge but I'll give it a shot. None of this is startlingly new--it's just common sense, and I will undoubtedly leave a few things off--but as a start:

1. Build/strengthen a small community based on sharing, generosity and reciprocity around yourself and family.
My critique of much survivalist thinking--and my alternative view--can be found here:

The Art of Survival, Taoism and the Warring States (June 27, 2008)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amen to this kind of thinking!

Mike and I are surrounded by both a wonderful, loving family upon which we can always rely, and a faith community which is intelligently, and lovingly, invested in the emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being of its parishioners.

These are two great assets to have during these difficult times right now, and we are very blessed to have both.

Computer Model That Locked Down The World Turns Out To Be Sh*tcode

Submitted by Mark E. Jeftovic, of Axis of Easy

It was an Imperial College computer model that forecasted 500K deaths in the UK (and 2.5 million in the US) should policymakers pursue a “herd immunity” approach (a la Sweden), that influenced them to reverse course and go full lockdown instead. The model was produced by a team headed by Neil Ferguson, (who recently resigned his post advising the UK government when it surfaced that he was himself violating lockdown directives by breaking self-isolation for dalliances with a married woman).

The source code behind the model was to be made available to the public, and after numerous delays and excuses in doing so, has finally been posted to GitHub

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the world wound up in lockdown mode, courtesy of buggy code, should be something which causes intelligent national leadership to think twice; of course, "intelligent national leadership" is a completely oxymoronic concept in a number of countries, including my own.

"Moral Vacuum" Exposed - European Leaders Cower In The Face Of China

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute

Australia and the United States are leading a campaign for an independent inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Senior officials in both countries are seeking to determine if the virus originated in nature or in a Chinese laboratory. They are also calling on the Chinese government to account for its handling of the initial outbreak in the city of Wuhan.

While Europeans cower in the face of Communist China, they have found time to issue threats against the only democracy in the Middle East. On April 30, eleven European ambassadors to Israel warned Jerusalem of "severe consequences" if it goes ahead with plans to annex parts of the West Bank.

In a lengthy essay published by Die Welt, Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer, Europe's largest publishing company, argued that the time has come for Europe to choose between the United States and China:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find this article very interesting, in both its characterisation of China, and of Israel.

Warfare, in this part of the 21st century, can be very much achieved without a single bomb being dropped, and that has to do with hitting an economy hard, with sanctions, and pressure on other countries to avoid buying anything from the targeted country; we are seeing that now from the standpoint of the US governmental pressure on China to admit, whether or not it truly happened, that it was the origin of Covid 19, and it was not forthcoming with enough information to "save" Americans who have either been sickened by, or died from, this virus.

For the authors of this article not to understand that such a Chinese "surveillance/social credit" system is being actively pursued by the US government and beyond, and will be employed just as quickly as the US Deep State believes it can "softly" install it, is amazingly naive.

And as to Israel being "the only democracy in the Middle East"?!?

Please,folks, give me a break here!!!

How can one talk of a democracy, when one group of people consistently has its civil rights violated 24/7, gets shot at, has the limbs blown off their kids and generally assassinated for no bloody reason whatsoever, other than this group being "the other"?!?

How can you talk of a "democracy" with a government enmeshed in such a depth and history of corruption and paranoia which, if reasonably documented, would fill computer disks from here to eternity, for a country which is only 72 years old?!?

Because unless and until Palestinians have full voting rights in the "Eretz Israel" which is being created, through this brisk annexation coming about in the West Bank in July of this year, there is no justice, and no democracy in the State of Israel, period, end of discussion.

And Palestinian "leadership" (or what passes for it) needs to get its collective act together, to advocate, immediately, for this to become the case, when this annexation becomes a fait accompli.
