Barbarians At The Gates — Is Our Great Republic In Danger Of Falling? (VIDEOS)

What Americans seem to have lost is hope, and I think that is intentional. The media on every channel beats the public down with talk of sickness, possible school closures, the economy, riots, violence, and politics. There never seems to be any good news, and all the while, everyone is told to stay home whenever possible while protesters are told that their actions are patriotic and, in some cases, necessary to get their point out. Good people are living in fear while the cities are in free fall. So of course, they feel helpless and are at the mercy of their elected officials. Speaking out is not only not good, but it’s going against the grain. Americans are told to not question what’s happening, just shut up, put on your mask, and do as your told.

Tomato gardeners: The latest victim in the government’s war on drugs

Backyard gardeners, beware: tomato plants have become collateral damage in the government’s war on drugs, especially marijuana.

In fact, merely growing a vegetable garden on your own property, or in a greenhouse on your property, or shopping at a gardening store for gardening supplies—incredibly enough—could set you up for a drug raid sanctioned by the courts.

New York State Liquor Authority bans DANCING in bars and weddings in effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19

It looks like Gov. Andrew Cuomo isn’t done banning all sorts of events in New York. On Thursday, August 2o, the New York State Liquor Authority announced that dancing is no longer allowed in bars and restaurants throughout the city to prevent the further spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

Aside from banning dancing in bars and restaurants in New York, dancing has also been prohibited at wedding receptions. The city’s liquor authority continues to declare a “war on fun,” enumerating other activities that are now banned during the pandemic, particularly cornhole, darts, exotic dancing, karaoke and pool.

Comedy shows have also been banned in the city to encourage social distancing and prevent the spread of infections.

US Secretary of State Pompeo defends Saudi arms sales after damning watchdog report on Yemen

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has defended Washington’s arms sales to Saudi Arabia after a watchdog report said the State Department failed to “fully assess” the risk of civilian deaths in war-torn Yemen.

Pompeo said on Wednesday that his department “did everything by the book” in regards to arms sales to Riyadh in May 2019.

“I am proud of the work that my team did. We got a really good outcome. We prevented the loss of lives,” he claimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's all about Trump's getting those contributions from the members of the US's military industrial complex, for being allowed to make those sales to the Saudi government, and making out like bandits, right, Mikey?!?

You, sir, are a very interesting piece of work; a man who claims to be a Christian, but appears to have had his conscience surgically removed, before you took the job as Secretary of State.

As a sister Christian with a conscience, I find that a very hard combination to fathom.

The images of dead Yemeni babies and toddlers, shot to death or wounded for life with weapons the US sold Saudi Arabia, have seared my conscience. And for those of you wondering, the following images are gritty, horrifically graphic, and, if you still have one, will break your heart.

American Bombs Have Killed Hundreds of Civilians, Including Children, in Unlawful Strikes on Yemen: Report

Mr. Secretary, this has to stop; and while I cannot personally stop it, the only true power I have, as a Christian Pacifist Activist, who never advocates violence, is to witness to the ultimate consequences of selling these weapons to a government which defiles its own humanity by assassinating, and wounding innocent babies, toddlers, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

Blasts hit Dubai, Abu Dhabi ahead of first flight from Israel

One person has been killed and several people injured in two separate explosions in the United Arab Emirates' capital Abu Dhabi and its tourism hub Dubai, police and local media say.

The incidents came as the first direct flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates entered the Saudi airspace before landing in Abu Dhabi, which was hit by a rare blast shortly before the arrival of US and Israeli officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that not all Emeratis are really happy with the UAE's rapprochement with Israel.

September 11, 2001: “The Global War on Terrorism” is Fake. Al Qaeda is “Made in America”

The tragic events of 9/11 provided the required justification to wage war on Afghanistan on “humanitarian grounds”, with the full support of World public opinion and the endorsement of the “international community”. Several prominent “progressive” intellectuals made a case for “retaliation against terrorism”, on moral and ethical grounds. The “just cause” military doctrine (jus ad bellum) was accepted and upheld at face value as a legitimate response to 9/11.

In the wake of 9/11, the antiwar movement was completely isolated. The trade unions and civil society organizations had swallowed the media lies and government propaganda. They had accepted a war of retribution against Afghanistan, an impoverished country in Central Asia of 30 million people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the official narrative is an absolute lie, those in power will attempt to do ANYTHING to prevent the truth from coming out; this is one of the myriad reasons I so respect my husband, Michael Rivero, who is the webmaster of this site, as well as those who contribute to it.

Telling the truth is hard, and sometimes feels thankless, and God only knows, is NOT financially lucrative; people who perpetuate the lies are handsomely compensated.

The Twilight of Democracy in the United States. Architecture of a Totalitarian Police State

The United States has erected the legal and institutional architecture of a totalitarian police state.

Institutionally, the national security autocracy has merged with the military, law enforcement and a vast private intelligence network to create a massive physical apparatus of repression that possesses panoptic powers.

Legally, an extensive framework of legislation threatens individual freedoms in the name of providing security for the American people.

Slowly, methodically and deliberately an apparatus of legal repression has been erected that abolishes significant constitutional protections guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, rendering genuine civil liberties into a set of arbitrary privileges to be withdrawn at the will of the state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, who never advocates violence, I have to wonder; when will the Powers that Be come for me?!?

When will they clamp down on WRH to the point where it can no longer be seen?!?

My criticisms of this government are not rooted in party politics at all; just in what is, and is not, good for We the People. I actually do not care so much about who is in power, because it is simply another face, and continuation, of the military/industrial complex' rule over this country.

I want foreign and domestic policies to be dictated by logic, reason, and intelligence; when did that become a crime in this country?!?

Police fire pellet guns on Kashmir Muharram procession: Witnesses

Government forces have fired shotgun pellets and tear gas to disperse hundreds of mainly Shia Muslims participating in a Muharram procession in Indian-administered Kashmir, injuring dozens, witnesses have said.

The violence came as the disputed Himalayan region - where nearly 97 percent of residents are Muslims - observed Ashoura on Saturday, the 10th day of the Muharram month in the Islamic lunar calendar.

Jafar Ali, a witness, told AFP news agency the procession started in the Bemina area on the outskirts of the main city of Srinagar and that government forces were present in heavy numbers.

Ali and other people who saw the clashes said security forces fired pellets and tear gas to break up the gathering. Police said mourners violated prohibitory orders that restrict all religious processions to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people organising this religious demonstration decided to break the law, in order to make Indian authorities look bad and wrong; the Indian authorities are using any excuse to suppress other than Hindu worship, and the organisers had to know this. Neither can escape the responsibility for the injuries which happened here.

Turkey intercepts six Greek F-16 jets in the Mediterranean as tensions rise

Turkey said on Saturday it will hold a military exercise off northwest Cyprus for the next two weeks, two days after it intercepted six Greek F-16 jets in the Mediterranean amid growing tensions with Athens over energy exploration rights.

Video footage posted by the Turkish defence ministry on Friday purportedly showed Turkish Air Force planes preventing the Greek aircraft from entering the area where Turkey was operating. The F-16s had departed from the island of Crete and were heading towards southern Cyprus, the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word on this, please, sir; we have two NATO-member countries, very close to starting shooting war over gas exploration in the Mediterranean; this needs to get de-escalated, and quickly.

Israeli tanks hit Hamas after balloon attacks from Gaza

The Israeli army says its tanks have hit Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Sunday after Palestinian balloon attacks across the border continued.

An early-morning military statement said there had been airborne explosive and incendiary attacks into southern Israel on Saturday.

There were no immediate reports of casualties from any of the incidents.

Palestinian sources said an Israeli artillery shell was fired towards a field control point east of Khan Younis, and another shell east of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

According to the Israeli fire brigade, the fire bombs - crude devices fitted to balloons, inflated condoms or plastic bags inflated with helium - have triggered more than 400 blazes in southern Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hamas, a word, please; the launching of these incendiary devices is NOT going to get you your desired outcome; Israel can launch indefinite, continued strikes against Gaza until there is nothing left but a bombed out series of craters, and the stench of seared flesh.

You need to look at those international and regional legal bodies which can give your cause (the cessation of the blockade) both media coverage, and legitimacy.

But these acts, of launching incendiary attacks, just makes Hamas look like a really bad actor on the world stage.

20,000 at anti-Netanyahu protest, including 200 Hasidim; events in world cities

Jerusalem demonstration ends largely peacefully; group from Bratslav sect, angry over Uman pilgrimage, joins in; man in passing car said to brandish pistol at Herzliya activists.

Thousands of Israelis took part in nationwide protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening, with the largest gathering taking place in Jerusalem where demonstrators have staged weekly rallies across from the premier’s residence. Some 200 Bratslav Hasidim joined the Jerusalem rally, angry at a government policy aimed at preventing their traveling to Uman, Ukraine, for an annual pilgrimage to the grave site of a venerated rabbi.

Media reports indicated some 20,000 took part in the demonstration in Jerusalem. Meanwhile organizers, citing bracelets they hand out to to all participants, said attendance was at 37,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question right now is, just what is Prime Minister Netanyahu willing, and capable of doing, to hang on to power, in the midst of these demonstrations?!?

The short answer is, anything with which he thinks he can get away; and that should concern "adults in the room" geopolitically, the world over.

The Fatal Attraction Of Techo-Fascism

Authored by Mark Petrakis via Off-Guardian.org,

"Those who are serious in ridiculous matters will be ridiculous in serious matters.”

- Cato the Elder

The enduring beauty of fascism is that it requires so little from us... so little independent thought; just our basic belief and adherence to a limited set of popularly-shared directives and narratives that once fully accepted, relieve us of the need to address stubborn questions or to fret over subtle differences of opinion and feeling.

Propaganda reassures us that we are complete, that we know all there is to know, that we are rational, pragmatic and pure, that the science has been settled and that we are a part of something special.

Such a surrender to reductionist narratives cuts across all classes and income brackets. Neither the most educated nor the least uneducated retain any special advantage in the face of powerful consensus-shaping propaganda.

NZ Police setting up $9m facial recognition system which can identify people from CCTV feed

Police have been quietly setting up a $9 million facial recognition system that can take a live feed from CCTV cameras and identify people from it.

Perfect time to wear a mask. ????

This would push New Zealand into new territory for tracking citizens.

It will be run by a non-police contractor - US firm Dataworks Plus - and collect 15,000 facial images a year, with that expected to expand up to 10-fold.

Some of this information is contained in an Official Information Act (OIA) response that police provided to Stuff last year but tried to withhold from RNZ (RadioNZ) last week until a complaint was made to the Ombudsman.

UAE And Israel Plan To Create Intelligence Bases On Yemen’s Socotra Island

By South Front,

Israel and the United Arab Emirates are going to create a military intelligence-gathering infrastructure on Yemen’s Socotra Island, according to Arab and French sources.

According to reports, a delegation of Israeli and UAE officers recently visited the island and examined several locations for establishing the planned intelligence facilities. Earlier in August, the UAE and Israel with assistance from the United States reached a historical peace agreement relaunching diplomatic, economic and even military cooperation between the states on the highest level. The security and military cooperation in the Bab al-Mandab Strait was among the expected goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the first item on the cooperation agenda between UAE and Israel is.... surveillance?!?

IF we are not careful, as a nation, this is what the whole of the unhinged, surveilled State of Amerika will look like; and its cities, like Portland, will be places where NO ONE wants to do business.

People are already leaving major metropolitan areas in droves, and places where these riots have touched, have already turned into post-apocalyptic "no-go zones."

If THIS is the future you want for your kids, fine; but if you do no, every voting citizen in your state needs to petition your governor to call out the national guard, and right the hell now.

Iran calls for international pressure to force Israel to sign NPT

Iran has urged the international community to pressure the Israeli regime into joining the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Deputy Representative of the Islamic Republic to the United Nations Es’haq Al-e Habib says the international community must force Tel Aviv to join the NPT and allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to access its nuclear facilities considering the Israeli regime's destructive role in the region.

Addressing a virtual meeting on the anniversary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) on Thursday, Al-e Habib stressed that the destructive role of the United States and Israel has prevented the realization of a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Free Zone in the Middle East.

Nearly two dozen Saudi troops enter US base in northeastern Syria: Report

Saudi Arabia has reportedly deployed nearly two dozen combat troops to a US-run military base in Syria’s oil-rich northeastern province of Hasakah as the Riyadh regime and some of its regional allies are vying with the United States to loot the natural resources of the war-ravaged country.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing an informed source, reported that 20 Saudi soldiers, led by an officer called Saud al-Joghaifi, arrived at the US base in the city of Shaddadi on Wednesday.

The source added that the Saudi troops were accompanied by a convoy of US-led forces from the coalition purportedly formed to fight the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, which withdrew from Camp Taji, situated 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, earlier this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So it's not JUST the US stealing Syrian oil; it's the Saudis as well!!

Portland Mayor Slams Trump's ‘Politics of Division, Demagoguery’, Rejects Federal Aid Amid Riots

Earlier in the day, US Attorney General William Barr accused authorities in Portland, Oregon of encouraging “violence through action and inaction,” through impeding and neutering local police, and refusing “to pursue charges against the rioters” amid ongoing anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests in the city.

The mayor of Oregon’s city of Portland, Ted Wheeler, on Friday blasted US President Donald Trump’s “politics of division and demagoguery” and rejected the president’s offer to send federal law enforcement personnel to quell ongoing anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests, which have turned in many incidents into riots and violence between demonstrators and police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mayor Wheeler, I do not know if the laws of Portland or Oregon allow for a sudden, "snap election" to remove a completely incompetent mayor; but if there is not a provision for this, looking at your utterly pathological stupidity, in your inability to maintain calm, there should be.

Peaceful protests, and burning businesses to the ground, are two mutually exclusive actions, and your inability to define between them here renders you utterly useless to every business owner in Portland who has not yet had their life's work burned to the ground by your thugs.

And just as though one cannot imagine your professional impotence getting any worse, we see the following video from rt.com:

The Israel-UAE Deal Isn’t About Peace at All: The U.S.-brokered pact makes no pretense of peace for Palestinians. Instead, it sharpens a regional coalition against Iran.

In some ways, the U.S.-brokered plan for mutual recognition between Israel and the United Arab Emirates is big news. For more than a quarter of a century, only two Middle Eastern countries – Egypt and Jordan – had officially recognized Israel. None of the Gulf monarchies did.

So, it was a pretty big deal when the announcement was made. Except, actually, not so much.

Despite the UAE’s claimed adherence to a decades-long position that no Arab country should normalize relations with Israel until it ended its occupation of Palestinian land, ties between the UAE and Israel had been quietly underway for years. The same is true of many other Arab states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, this looks more like a cynical "same-old same-old", than a real move for peace in the region.

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,Gun sales were up 72% compared to this time last year,  with first-time buyers leading the pack. Americans are likely sensing that something is horribly wrong with the rigged system we are forced to live under.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the National Sports Shooting Foundation says that first-time gun buyers played a heavy role in the increase. Women and black Americans have also shown interest in arming themselves this year.

“Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40% of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm,” the organization said in its analysis, which tracked background checks associated with the sale of a firearm reported by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

The organization said this uptick in purchases by those who have not owned a gun before, equates to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020.

Tennessee Teachers Are Worried You'll Overhear What They Teach Your Kids

Teachers are worried you’ll hear what they teach your kids.
A Tennessee school district asked parents to sign a form agreeing not to listen in or “eavesdrop” on online classes.

Parents were not a big fan of this idea, and after a backlash the district backed down.

But this wasn’t the first time schools worried about parents hearing what they are drilling into students’ brains.

One teacher complained on Twitter that virtual classrooms will have “potential spectators… overhearing the discourse.”

Several teachers expressed concern about parents overhearing “honest conversations about gender/ sexuality” in his classroom which usually has a “what happens here stays here” policy.

Apparently these gender and sexuality-obsessed public school teachers want to have sensitive conversations with your children behind your back.

Sandia Labs Goes Nuclear On Employee Who Sparked Internal Revolt Over Critical Race Theory

Sandia Labs - America's premiere government-funded nuclear weapons design lab, has taken aggressive action against an employee, Casey Peterson, who produced a viral video "pushing back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege."

Here's the long and short of it via Christopher Rufo - director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Wealth & Poverty, who has directed four documentaries for PBS, Netflix and international television - and has declared 'war' on critical race theory.

Rufo continues:

On Tuesday, Peterson made a YouTube video "pushing back back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege."

The video quickly hit 10,000 views within the labs and dozens of Sandia employees contacted Peterson to express support.

On "Unconditional" Military Aid To Israel, Biden-Harris Far To The Right Even Of Bush Admin

Authored by Brett Wilkins via CommonDreams.org,

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris told a group of Jewish donors Wednesday that a Joe Biden White House would not place any conditions on military aid to Israel, and that a Biden-Harris administration would continue the "unprecedented" military and intelligence cooperation with the Jewish state the country received from the Obama administration.

Haarretz reports the California Democrat's comments came during a virtual campaign call with donors in which she assured attendees that "Joe has made it clear he will not tie security assistance to political decisions Israel makes," adding that she "couldn't agree more" with that policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the "normalization" of regional governments with that of Israel are supposed to "magically occur" with absolutely ZERO PROVISION FOR A PALESTINIAN STATE.

The COVID-19 Scamdemic, Part 1: The Hard Road To A New World Order

Authored by Iain Davis via In This Together blog,

Among many similar globalist states, The UK State is a public-private partnership between government, financial institutions, multinational corporations, global think tanks, and well funded third sector organisations, such as so called non governmental organisations (NGO’s) and large international charities.

Through a labyrinthine structure of direct funding, grant making and philanthropy, the UK State is a cohesive globalist organisation that works with selected academics, scientific institutions and mainstream media (MSM) outlets to advance a tightly controlled, predetermined narrative.

This designed consensus serves the the interests and global ambitions of a tiny group of disproportionately wealthy people.

The WHO is monitoring online conversations and emotions, using “social listening” to change COVID narratives

The World Health Organization is collaborating with an analytics company to scan people’s social media conversations for “coronavirus misinformation;” something the WHO calls “social listening.”

The global health organization says that it’s not only fighting the pandemic but also the conversations people are having about it.

According to the WHO, there’s an “infodemic” – an overload and spread of misleading information, so much so that it decided that to tackle misinformation, it needs to employ various tools, including social listening, with machine learning monitoring.

Kamala Harris pledges unconditional support for Israel

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris reiterated that Joe Biden will not impose any conditions on US aid to Israel, saying that assistance would not be linked to "any political decision" made by the Israeli government.

Her remarks, about eight weeks before the election, come at a time when the right-wing government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still considering annexing large parts of the occupied West Bank.

"Joe has made it clear he will not tie security assistance to any political decisions that Israel makes, and I couldn't agree more," Harris told a virtual fundraiser with Jewish-American voters on Wednesday.

That California senator went on to promote Biden's "unwavering support" for Israel and his role in securing military assistance for the Israeli government when he served as Barack Obama's vice president.

DEMOCRATS ACCUSED OF LETTING COPS ACCESS AMERICANS' BROWSING HISTORIES

SOURCE: FUTURISM
A group of 11 advocacy organizations, including Fight for the Future and Free Press Action, just signed a letter accusing Democratic Party leadership of throwing Americans’ online privacy under the bus by concealing potentially unauthorized mass surveillance by the FBI.

Specifically, the letter accuses party leaders including Congressman Adam Schiff and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of undermining negotiations to strengthen digital privacy and limit warrantless surveillance or browsing history seizures, Gizmodo reports. It suggests that federal law enforcement is continuing to conduct “dragnet” mass surveillance, even after the laws that allowed those practices expired.

FIRST AREA OF UAE-ISRAEL COOPERATION: SPYING ON DISSIDENTS AND JOURNALISTS

OURCE: GEOPOLITICS ALERT
ABU DHABI (AMA) – ONCE AGAIN, MEDIA OUTLETS REVEAL ISRAELI COOPERATION WITH GULF COUNTRIES IN THE FIELD OF ESPIONAGE AND THE SALE OF SPECIAL CAPABILITIES AND EXPERTISE THAT WILL HELP GULF GOVERNMENTS TRACK DOWN DISSIDENTS. THE ISRAELI NSO COMPANY IN QUESTION IS ALSO MENTIONED IN A VERY IMPORTANT AND SENSITIVE TOPIC RELATED TO ITS ADVANCED SPYWARE, “PEGASUS,” WHICH ENABLES PENETRATION OF MOBILE PHONES.
This time, the Hebrew newspaper, Haaretz, discussed the issue of Israeli-Gulf cooperation in terms of espionage, stating that the NSO company recently sold programs to opponents like the United Arab Emirates and other Gulf countries. According to what the newspaper on Sunday, deals, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, were carried out through official mediation.

The report came to confirm that the Emirati normalization with Israel was an inevitable result of deep and sensitive cooperation between them.

Science Is Not About Consensus

Authored by Jeff Harris via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

Newsflash; real science is based on facts not “consensus”.

I’m sick and tired of idiots beating me over the head with pseudoscience instead of sticking to the cold, hard facts.

Show me the hard data that standing six feet from someone is necessary.

Show me the hard data that wearing any old rag on my face is going to materially stop the spread of a virus.

Show me the hard data that enjoying fresh air and sunshine outdoors could be an invitation to an early death.

Please, stick to the facts and don’t dare lecture me about the “consensus” and here’s why.

Maybe you’ve heard of Ignaz Semmelweis, an Austrian-Hungarian obstetrician with a prickly personality. If not, you will quickly recognize his contribution to the medical profession with the three words he made famous:

NATO's "Unified Front" At Breaking Point

Authored by Danny Sjursen via The Future of Freedom Foundation,

Last month, a Turkish warship came one step away from firing missiles at a French naval vessel off the coast of Libya. In response, Paris suspended its involvement in Operation Sea Guardian — a multinational maritime effort to provide security in the Mediterranean Sea and halt the arms trafficking fueling Libya’s ongoing civil war. Initially, only eight member states — notably excluding both the U.S. and U.K. — supported France’s official complaint. This was only the latest incident in the increasingly frequent — and exceedingly awkward — tensions between several of Washington’s core North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies.

Indeed, from South America to East Asia, NATO members stand divided over many critical foreign policy issues of the moment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NATO, as an entity, no longer has any clear direction, and is seeing member nations going after other member NATO members, as Turkey is with Greece, concerning Mediterranean drilling rights, and appears to be one step away from implosion.

Stupid Canada - Kiwi sails through Canadian waters in breach of rules

A Kiwi is sailing through the Arctic on his custom yacht, in breach of Covid-19 water restrictions.

A professional boatbuilder, yachtsman and founding partner of Cavalier Yachts in the 1970s, Peter Smith's latest venture has found him in hot water with Canadian authorities.

The 72-year-old is sailing the Northwest Passage, a sea route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago - against Covid restrictions.

Canadian authorities have prohibited pleasure craft from sailing in Arctic waters, in a bid to better protect Arctic communities from the spread of Covid-19.

Advance NZ ordered to remove Facebook video claiming Labour will force vaccination on citizens

Advance New Zealand has been ordered to take a political video off social media which claims Labour will force New Zealanders to be vaccinated.

Speaker Trevor Mallard told the party take down the clip posted to the party's Facebook page because it breaches the rules of using Parliamentary footage.

But Advance NZ co-leader Jami-Lee Ross said he rejected Mallard's move and labelled it "draconian".

The clip uses Parliament TV footage of Minister for Managed Isolation and Quarantine Megan Woods speaking in the House about the Covid-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill.

"Think we are conspiracy theorists? Have a listen to the minister's own mouth."

It then uses clips of Woods saying the bill would set up the legal framework to require someone to be vaccinated:

hen policymakers across the country decided to “lock down” in response to the March outbreak of the novel coronavirus, they took a leap into the unknown. Not only did we know little about COVID-19 itself at that time, but we knew almost nothing about how shutting down nearly all of society would affect people.

Democrats essentially CONCEDE the election: Nancy Pelosi demands “no debates” as Democrats face the truth that Joe Biden is a walking Alzheimer’s patient who belongs in a nursing home

The Democrats are apparently convinced Joe Biden’s mental faculties are so weak, he can’t handle a single conversation with someone the Democrats claim is “unfit for office.” It raises the obvious question: If Joe Biden is too mentally weak to debate Trump, how is Biden supposed to lead America?

NJ Governor Uses COVID Crisis to Propose Gun Control Taxes

Gov. Murphy’s proposed antigun increases include raising the handgun purchasing permit fee $2,400 percent from $2 to $50; the cost of a firearm ID card by 1,900 percent from $5 to $100; the price of a handgun carry permit 7,900 percent from $50 to $400; the fee for a gun retail dealer license by 9,900 percent from $50 to $500; and the fee for a firearm manufacturer 900 percent from $150 to $1,500. There are, or course, additional fee increases as well.

REVEALED: How Bill Gates Buys Mainstream Outlets, Journalists and ‘Fact-Checkers’

Up to June of 2020, Bill Gates has ploughed no less than $250 million in foundation grants into mainstream journalism.

Takers include BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, Univision, Medium, Financial Times, The Atlantic, Gannett News, and Le Monde – to name only a few. Many other mainstream outlets are pocketing money for ‘contracts’ they have with the Gates Foundation, including Vox.

These mainstream outlets claim there are no strings attached to this ‘free money’ from Gates, but upon closer examination, this relationship appears to be fraught with influence peddling and obvious conflicts of interest.

German capital BANS anti-lockdown protest, condemning ‘corona deniers & right-wing extremists’

Berlin authorities have banned the upcoming protest against Covid-19 lockdown measures, saying the marches were being misused as a stage for right-wing extremists and “deniers” of the pandemic.

Organizers of the August 29 “Assembly for Freedom” in central Berlin had registered 17,000 demonstrators. The local government says police will be out in force to prevent the gathering, because participants in the previous march “deliberately broke the rules” for wearing masks and social distancing.

“We are still in the middle of a pandemic with rising infection figures,” Berlin’s interior minister Andreas Geisel told reporters on Wednesday.

“This is not a decision against freedom of assembly, but a decision in favour of infection protection,” the minister said, adding that Berlin should not be "misused as a stage for corona deniers… and right-wing extremists.”

Coronacrisis Turns Buyback Billionaires into the Trillion-Dollar Dozen

The Coronacrisis has been a boon for America’s wealthiest dozen, taking their aggregate wealth over the top of a trillion dollars. One think tank refers to them as the “Oligarchic Dozen”:

The rich get richer” doesn’t even begin to tell the story these days. According to the Institute for Policy Studies, the wealth of the top 12 billionaires in the U.S. recently exploded to more than one trillion dollars — yes, 13 digits…. “This is simply too much economic and political power in the hands of twelve people. From the point of view of a democratic self-governing society, this represents an Oligarchic Dozen….”

Since the pandemic first blew up in the U.S. back in March, the “Oligarchic Dozen” has enjoyed a 40% surge in its combined wealth…. “The total wealth of the Oligarchic Dozen is greater than the GDP of Belgium and Austria combined,” said Omar Ocampo, a researcher for IPS’s program on inequality and the common good.

Most Kiwis still trust Govt's pandemic response but business more sceptical

Most Kiwis still trust the Government and health authorities to successfully manage the Covid-19 pandemic, although business owners and the self-employed have become far more sceptical, a new survey has found.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is also seen as clearly a better leader to manage the pandemic than National Party leader Judith Collins.

Following the second wave of infection and lockdowns, overall trust and confidence in the Government and Ministry of Health's response to the pandemic edged down 3 per cent, according to the survey by consultants Horizon Research.

*Wait until the wage subsidies finish on Sept 1 & then job lay offs to then see if the trust still reamins.*

Jacinda Ardern reveals major boost for NZ and global vaccine efforts

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced hundreds of millions of dollars to help secure access to a Covid-19 vaccine as soon as one becomes available.

The specific amount, from the Government's Covid-19 Response and Recovery Fund, cannot be disclosed due to commercial sensitivity - but it is not part of the $14 billion still in reserve.

It is in addition to the $37 million vaccine strategy released in May to support domestic and international work.

Ardern said there were "reasons for optimism" in the global search for a vaccine.

US Troops Injured After Russian Chopper & Vehicles Gave Chase To American Convoy In Syria

Dramatic video which emerged Tuesday shows the latest "close call" between US, Russia, and Syrian national forces who are jostling for control of northeast Syria, after a prior incident resulted in a rare exchange of fire at a Syrian Army checkpoint, killing two Syrian soldiers.

The Pentagon is reporting multiple US troops injured with what are being described as "concussion-like injuries" as a result of collisions with Russian armored vehicles.

The footage is being widely reported as showing Russian Army vehicles and even a chopper giving chase to an American armored convoy in northeastern Syria.

And here's the account of Beirut-based al-Masdar News, which is known for having reporters on the ground and sources within the Syrian Army:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply concerned about a major escalation here before November's election, and hope and pray that President Trump and the Joint Chiefs collectively have the horse-sense to not let this happen.

NZ military can now tell returnees to stay in their room

The Government has given Defence Force personnel at managed isolation and quarantine hotels more enforcement powers.

Those powers include the ability to give directions, for example telling returnees to stay in their rooms, or request identification.

But the extent of those powers will not extend to the warrantless search powers available under the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act, says the Ministry of Health.

The Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday director general Ashley Bloomfield had authorised some functions and powers of enforcement officers under the new coronavirus Act to extend to members of the armed forces.

*This line should show that Aunty Cindy is a Dictator -'But the extent of those powers will not extend to the warrantless search powers.' Thanks Aunty. I'm glad we have elections in a few weeks.*

Nina Funnell on #LetUsSpeak: Victoria blocks sexual assault victims from using real names

Victoria has gone backwards and introduced a law that will see criminals fist pumping in their cells and sexual assault survivors having to hide their faces.

Tens of thousands of sexual assault survivors in Victoria have been stripped of their legal right to tell their stories using their real names.

The changes to the Judicial Proceedings Reports Act – which were quietly introduced in February – silence all sexual assault victims whose offenders have been found guilty, by banning them from ever speaking out under their real identities.

*The question one has to ask, is why would one bring in a law like this unless you might want to hide something??*

Moving Backwards : Tennessee school English lesson teaches that Whites are racists who oppress minorities

If you want to know why some teachers fear how virtual learning allows parents to witness their instruction, you don’t have to look further than an “English” lesson in Tennessee. In fact, one outraged father in the Metro Nashville Public School District is now pulling his seven-year-old daughter out of school because she was being taught that, as he put it, “white people are bad, mean & racist against African-Americans & Mexicans.”

Australia’s answer to Mao wants to extend his state of emergency for another YEAR. This should frighten anyone who values liberty

Victoria’s Dan Andrews has brought in some of the most draconian Covid-19 lockdown restrictions on the planet and now wants the right to keep them in place for a further 12 months. This public health tyranny needs to be stopped.

I regret to report that Melbourne’s answer to Mao Zedong has decided that he really rather enjoys being able to tell people exactly what they have to do and has no intention of stopping any time soon. Chairman, sorry, Premier Dan Andrews of Victoria is trying to railroad a bill through the legislature that would allow him to keep the current state of emergency going for another 12 months.

Australia’s second most populous city has already been in a state of emergency for six months, meaning that if he gets his way he will have been free to run the place like his own private penal colony for 18 months.

Outrage as Pompeo Gives Convention Speech in Jerusalem: Critics say unacceptable to give political speech during official travel

As the mouthpiece of US foreign policy, the State Department isn’t meant to be a political body. That’s a growing issue today, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo used an official State Department visit to Jerusalem as an opportunity to deliver his speech to the Republican National Convention.

Critics say giving a political speech while on duty is inappropriate, and especially for the State Department. It’s not clear there is a specific law about this, however, as the State Department said they’d reviewed the speech and decided it didn’t cross lines.

Democratic groups said that in addition to going against historical acts by top US secretaries, that having the speech in Jerusalem risks making Israel a wedge issue politically. The Trump Administration is playing up moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is likely to be part of why it was chosen as a location for the speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears... that Pompeo has been taking graduate-level classes in hubris from his "very great friend", Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu.

And even though the deal between the UAE and Israel was supposed to stop the annexation process, Netanyahu has made it crystal clear that this process has not stopped, but has been put "on hold" one has to imagine for how long before it restarts, and when Palestinians are left again, stateless, homeless, and enduring cruel physical and emotional punishments from Israel on a daily basis.

For many years, I have warned both Hamas and Fatah on this blog, that if they couldn't get their act together, that whatever homeland they wound with would be smaller than Lichtenstein or Andorra; now, there will be no place for them to call their own, when the Israeli annexation machine starts rolling forward again, like an inescapable juggernaut.

China Arms Pakistan With 'Advanced Warships' As Threats Of Nuclear War With India Escalate

When the Trump administration withheld billions of dollars in security aid to Pakistan in 2018, the logic then was that the Pakistani military would be forced to form greater ties with the US and surrounding allies to reclaim lost aid.

Fast forward today, the new reality, Pakistan abandoned the West and its allies for China.

Pakistan quickly bolstered ties with China via billions of dollars in Belt and Road projects over the last two years. China has also provided the Pakistani military with aircraft, weaponry, and other advanced hardware. The cooperation between both countries has taken another giant leap as China just delivered the first of four "most advanced" warships to the Pakistani Navy, a move that will clearly upset India and the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was no "logic" to this decision to withhold aid; only immense stupidity and hubris, in not realizing that China would rush to fill the void with its own weapons; and in the immoral words of the American comedian Ron White: "You can't fix stupid!!"

Pathogens and Politics: Further Evidence That Parasite Prevalence Predicts Authoritarianism

According to a "parasite stress" hypothesis, authoritarian governments are more likely to emerge in regions characterized by a high prevalence of disease-causing pathogens. Recent cross-national evidence is consistent with this hypothesis, but there are inferential limitations associated with that evidence. We report two studies that address some of these limitations, and provide further tests of the hypothesis. Study 1 revealed that parasite prevalence strongly predicted cross-national differences on measures assessing individuals' authoritarian personalities, and this effect statistically mediated the relationship between parasite prevalence and authoritarian governance.

Multiple Studies Predicted Governments Become Authoritarian In Response To Pandemics

The authoritarian measures have now grown to include the following:

– checkpoints (asking about travel, checking temperatures)

– temperature screenings at some airports

– contact tracing apps cataloging all your movements and contacts

– emergency orders/executive orders supporting forced vaccinations, isolation, and quarantine

– involuntary quarantine centers/camps

– thermal drones watching people from the sky

– talk of mandatory vaccines (or making it difficult to live without vaccination)

–face recognition tech to fight covid19 (by tracking people violating lockdowns)

– discussion of immunity passports/digital certificates to travel

– censorship of alternative viewpoints

– raiding of businesses for not closing

– arrests of people violating lockdown (and this, and this)

– ankle monitors for those violating quarantine orders

– roving cops searching for people not in the “proper” places

Your Comprehensive Guide to Kamala Harris and The Second Amendment

In short, when Senator Harris claims to support the Second Amendment, she is not telling the truth. The facts show that she has been an avowed enemy of the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Whether it is supporting bans on firearms, denying people the ability to carry firearms for personal protection, depriving gun owners of privacy and due process, or targeting manufacturers and dealers, she has not been on the side of freedom. -- Quite frankly, Harris has one of the most anti-Second Amendment track records we have ever seen for a person on a major party’s presidential ticket. She will be a heartbeat away from the presidency should Joe Biden win. Second Amendment supporters should cast their votes accordingly.

Aug 24 14:59

Never forget: If Kamala Harris takes over as president, she WILL come after guns with a vengeance and may send law enforcement to take them

And let’s be clear about something else: The amendment’s “shall not be infringed” clause is among the most ignored passages in the U.S. Constitution. It’s ignored by members of Congress, federal and state judges, city councils, Left-wing anti-gun groups, and Americans who don’t think anyone should have a gun. -- The clause is simple, straightforward, and unambiguous. It doesn’t say ‘shall not be infringed unless…’

Radical Left’s Agenda Against Trump: Ignore Achievements

The plan to secure a Radical Left Marxist victory in November 2020 is actually straightforward. It is grounded on an amalgamation of enticement, fear, and guilt: Entice the American people into accepting the false belief that the violence impacting our Nation is a result of two centuries of pent-up rage of Black victims at the hands of White oppressors, caused by systemic racism infecting all American institutions; that it is reflected in White supremacism that resulted in the election of Trump as U.S. President; that, if Trump is re-elected, violence will continue; and that such violence will only recede if the electorate repudiates Trump and elects a Democrat in his stead.

Australia: Authorities Give Themselves Power to Remove Children From Parents to Ensure COVID Compliance

Authorities in Australia have given themselves the power to have police remove children from the custody of their parents in order to ensure compliance with coronavirus rules.

Schedule 2 of the COVID-19 Emergency Response Act 2020 amends the Emergency Response Act 2004 to create new powers during “declared emergencies.”

Section 25 of the act states the following;

—Removal of children
(1) Without derogating from section 25, an authorised officer may, for the purpose of ensuring compliance with any direction under that section, remove a child from any premises, place, vehicle or vessel to a place of residence of the child or to a hospital or quarantine facility, as the authorised officer thinks fit (and may, in doing so, use such force as is reasonably necessary).
A child is defined as anyone under the age of 18.

BILL GATES SECRETLY DICTATES GLOBAL FOOD POLICY TOO

Bill Gates has built a global empire around his technologies and “philanthropic” endeavors, the magnitude of which is now becoming increasingly clear. His sheer wealth has allowed him to become a veritable superpower in his own right. He’s not only risen to become the largest funder of the World Health Organization and the unelected global COVID-19 health czar but he’s also a secret powerbroker of the global food system.

As revealed in the AGRA Watch report,1 “The Man Behind the Curtain: The Gates Foundation’s Influence on the UN Food Systems Summit,” published August 2020, Gates wields powerful influence over global food and agriculture policy through his funding of a large number of organizations involved in agricultural development and policy making.

Censorship claims another victim: Honest-journalism giant, Del Bigtree’s “The Highwire”

On July 29, YouTube terminated Del Bigtree’s “The Highwire” account after he posted a video of Del and me discussing my debate with Alan Dershowitz on vaccine mandates. YouTube also purged hundreds of other truthful videos on vaccines.

YouTube’s owner, Google, is effectively a vaccine company. Two subsidiaries of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, market and manufacture vaccines: Calico and Verily. Arthur Levinson, Genentech’s former CEO, runs Calico, an anti-aging drug company while Verily teams with Pharma to conduct drug and vaccine clinical trials.

In 2016, Alphabet inked a $715 million deal with GlaxoSmithKline to create Galvani, another venture to develop bioelectronic medicines and vaccines and to mine medical information from Google customers. Google’s Customer Services President, Mary Ellen Coe, sits on Merck’s board.

Jacinda Ardern to put all New Zealanders who test positive for coronavirus into quarantine camps

The final endgame to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) plandemic is finally coming into view, with New Zealand serving as the blueprint for what will presumably and inevitably happen everywhere else, including in the United States, if We the People fail to stand up against it.

As part of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s totalitarian plans for the total enslavement of New Zealand, mandatory quarantine camps are reportedly being set up all across the country to house people who supposedly test positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

According to reports, New Zealanders admitted to these camps will be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Their every move will be tracked, and “health staff” will reportedly be present “at all times” to “look after people.”

If mask mandates are justified by people “testing positive” for coronavirus, they will NEVER end… because the tests will never stop reporting fake “cases”

We now have proof that the medical fascists intend to never end the mask mandates, lockdowns and forced quarantine camps that they claim are necessary due to covid-19. All those Orwellian measures are being justified by coronavirus “cases” stemming solely from people “testing positive” for the coronavirus. But these tests are largely flawed and produce disturbingly high numbers of false positives. Even when the tests are accurate in terms of a genetic match for the virus, if a person isn’t sick with symptoms, then it’s not a “case” to begin with.

That also allows those previously considered “moderate” to now be smeared as “extremists,” with accusations of being haters not far behind.

Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews has announced the restrictions associated with the state of emergency will be extended and could be in place for the next 12 months.

Victoria's state of emergency is due to end of September 13 but Andrews said the state cannot afford to have the restrictions that go along with the state emergency end.

"That is the legal instrument that allows rules about face masks, about Covid safe work plans in workplaces large and small, that is the legal instrument that sits behind density limits in pubs and cafes and restaurants. Things like a positive person, someone who has got this virus, and required to isolate at home," he said.

My research in bioethics focuses on questions like how to induce those who are noncooperative to get on board with doing what’s best for the public good.

Could a psychoactive pill be the solution to the pandemic?

Pentagon Report Deems "Covert Surveillance" Aircraft Flown Over George Floyd Protests Legal

The Pentagon is defending its use of military aircraft to conduct surveillance on the large crowds of demonstrators and in some cases riots which enveloped multiple cities connected with George Floyd's death. A new investigation has exonerated the National Guard after allegations it illegally gathered intelligence on Americans.

It was previously revealed that the National Guard used reconnaissance planes to fly over at least four US cities in order to gather data on growing protests in late May and early June, crucially at a moment President Trump was urging greater action in ensuring law and order in the protest and vandalism-hit cities.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said he never personally approved of the program to fly the reconnaissance aircraft over the protests, but National Guard officials say they didn't need higher approval given it was just for observing crowd sizes and to probe if any emergencies such as large fires were unfolding, according to their account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country is alarmingly close to the precipice, if National Guard is allowed to do this with impunity, and no real oversight of this process takes place.

The Economic Insanity of This Coronavirus Pandemic Plot and the Coming Global Reset

As conditioning of the herd reaches new levels, and more voluntarily choose to go along, the ‘new normal’ will continue to change to suit the new narrative.
