Trump Regime Blocks UN Security Council Resolution for “Global Ceasefire” During COVID-19 Epidemic

Run by warlord members from both right wings of the one-party state, the US geopolitical agenda prioritizes permanent wars against invented enemies to enforce their will on humanity by brute force and other hostile actions.

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The microchipping.... of Israeli children?!?

How much more dystopian can you get?!?

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?!?

The Truth About Fauci Featuring Dr. Judy Mikovits


Note: The title is linked to Robert F. Kennedy's "Children's Health Defense" page in case YouTube takes down the embedded video. [ts]
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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The larger question is, how can any rational human being accept any numbers come up with by W.H.O. with a straight face anymore?!?

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.

POLICE ARE COMPLICIT IN POLITICIANS’ DISREGARD FOR THE RULE OF LAW

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.

Kiwi air hostesses grounded over coronavirus strip for cash

Kiwi air hostesses made redundant during the global coronavirus pandemic are increasingly swapping runways for jobs as strippers.

Hundreds of cabin crew at New Zealand airlines have lost their flying jobs after Covid-19 closed borders, locked down nations, and grounded flights.

In April, Air New Zealand confirmed nearly 1500 cabin crew faced redundancy.

But the Herald can reveal that some former flight attendants are now taking their clothes off to supplement their sudden lost income.

Rockefeller Foundation Paper Published in 2010 Predicted How a Pandemic Can be Used as an Excuse to Establish Global Authoritarian Power

“The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.” This sounds eerily familiar.

Then the scenario gets very interesting: “During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified. ..."

Mental health of Kiwis under pressure over future uncertainty

The mental health of many New Zealanders will hang in the balance during the coming months as the social repercussions of lockdown take hold.

NZ Police response raises more questions about whether lockdown was legally enforceable

The Beehive was spinning hard last night over leaked Crown Law advice to police over the lawfulness of the lockdown. The fact that it's in draft form is to me irrelevant.

Police seemingly accepted the advice, agreed with the advice, and then used the advice to inform its response.

The draft advice was read by Police in-house lawyer Bill Peoples who then forwarded it to Police Commissioner Andy Coster, Deputy Commissioner Mike Clement and Chief Advisor to the Commissioner Travis Mills on the morning of Saturday, March 28, saying "this is consistent with our internal advice".

Within 90 minutes, Clement summarises it, saying "Police do not have the power to detain individuals, stop vehicles, enter property, search individuals or property, or conduct surveillance over individuals or property in order to enforce the isolation campaign".

NZ Duo who sued NZ PM now ask for judicial review of Govt's pandemic decisions

Two men who sued Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern by claiming unlawful detention during the Covid-19 lockdown are now asking for a judge to test the legality of the Government's pandemic decisions.

It is the second such request for a Covid-19 judicial review after former parliamentary counsel and law drafter Andrew Borrowdale also this week asked for a court to test if level 4 and 3 were illegal.

Borrowdale is arguing director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield exceeded his powers.

Firearms Instructor, Congressional Candidate Sue CA Governor Newsom For Violation of 1st Amendment.

"Defendants, in a gross abuse of their power, have seized the Coronavirus pandemic to expand their authority by unprecedented lengths. In times of crisis, governments often seek to curtail fundamental constitutional rights such as the right to assemble and petition the government. It is precisely at these times that those rights become the most important," said D.Gill Sperlein, a lead attorney for the plaintiffs.
"At a time when Californians are rightfully questioning the duration and extent of the stay at home orders, which are unevenly enforced and which have resulted in other Constitutional challenges, Governor Newsom has reacted to citizen protests not by addressing widespread concern, but simply by shutting down protest at the Capitol altogether, making no reasonable accommodations for this fundamental function in a free society."

Only those bad guys in the FBI or BATF would ever consider violating your rights.

They Want To Make "Social Distancing" A Permanent Part Of Our Lives

Humans are inherently social creatures, and that is never going to change. Within each one of us there is a fundamental need for connection with others, but now these coronavirus lockdowns have separated us from one another like never before. Thankfully, many states are now starting to end their lockdowns, but unfortunately this is definitely not the end for “social distancing”. Just as 9/11 greatly altered our society on a permanent basis, many of our social engineers now intend to make “social distancing” a permanent part of our lives. If they have their way, there will be written or unwritten rules about how close you can get to other people virtually everywhere that you go.

Air New Zealand jet pilots take 30% pay cut, 300 laid off

Air New Zealand jet pilots have forged a deal which sees them take a 30 per cent pay cut and limits the number of job losses to around 300.

The New Zealand Air Line Pilots' Association (NZALPA) says it has saved as many jobs as possible.

About 900 Air New Zealand jet pilots will remain on the payroll but will take what equates to a 30 per cent pay cut for the next nine months. They will continue flying the airline's jet aircraft on domestic and international routes with significantly reduced schedules.

Nz Finance Minister Grant Robertson's warning: Get ready for deficits for 'extended period'; debt at all-time high

Finance Minister Grant Robertson has revealed the Government will be running deficits for an "extended period" of time and its debt levels will reach an all-time high.

He says some of the Government's major previously mooted Budget plans have been "put on ice" as it fights to pump life into the post-Covid economy.

And he has revealed that one of the Government's priorities will be strengthening and improving the public sector.

In his much-anticipated pre-Budget speech today, Robertson said this was "a necessary and responsible move" as the Government looks to "rebuild" the economy.

Leaked NZ Crown Law documents question legal force of alert level 4 rules

Crown Law documents leaked to Newstalk ZB say the Government's lockdown was unenforceable.

Attorney-General David Parker, however, says the document was a draft - and "not the considered advice of Crown Law".

Kiwis' freedoms were severely curtailed by the lockdown and hundreds who breached its rules were prosecuted.

The Crown Law documents seen by Newstalk ZB say the police powers were severely limited under the first directive of director general of health Ashley Bloomfield.

Under the directive, police were charged with ensuring businesses were closed and preventing the public from congregating in public places for amusement and recreation.

*Our lovely, smiley face Jacinda...lied. She knew that the law was unenforceable but carried on lying anyway.*

FED CHAIR POWELL HAS MILLIONS INVESTED WITH BLACKROCK, THE FIRM THAT WILL MANAGE A $750 BILLION CORPORATE BOND BAILOUT PROGRAM FOR THE FED

Most Americans likely assume that Jerome Powell, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, is an economist, like the prior chairs of the Fed over the past 40 years. He’s not. Powell is a former investment banker at the Wall Street firm, Dillon Read; a former partner at the controversial private equity and leveraged buyout firm, the Carlyle Group, which has spent over $1 billion over the past decade lobbying the federal government; and a former lawyer at Davis Polk, a Big Law firm that played a key role advising the government and Treasury in the 2008 Wall Street bailout.

Locking up the elderly until coronavirus is defeated is a cruel mockery of basic human values: Former Supreme Court judge LORD SUMPTION gives a withering critique of the Government's lockdown

COVID-19 is not the greatest crisis in our history. It is not even the greatest public health crisis in our history. But the lockdown is without doubt the greatest interference with personal liberty in our history.

It is normal at this point to add 'in peacetime'. But we can forget that. Even in wartime, we never confined the entire population to their homes, 24/7, if they did not have some excuse acceptable to a Minister.

States have always tried to confine people known to be carrying dangerous infections. But we live in a new world in which, if we are ill, the State will try to cure us. From this, it is said to follow that the State can take control of our lives against our will even if we are healthy, lest we fall ill and need its services too much.

Suddenly, it is our duty to save the NHS, not the other way round.

Trump Appointed Federal Judge Dismisses COVID-19 Pandemic Facemask Lawsuit - (But NOT Because The orders are Constitutional)

Stillwater Oklahoma City manager Norman McNickle decried alleged threats of violence by those unhappy with the face mask order. He claimed ""Many of those with objections cite the mistaken belief the requirement is unconstitutional, and under their theory, one cannot be forced to wear a mask. No law or court supports this view. In fact, a recent Federal lawsuit against Guthrie's face covering order was fully dismissed by the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma." However, federal judge Judge Scott L. Palk dismissed the case not on lack of merit of constututional grounds, but because the plaintiffs did not have standing to sue. In other words, because the plaintiffs had not been arrested, prosecuted or threatened with prosecution for not obeying the face mask or lockdown orders in Guthrie OK.

Banning the conspiracist David Icke is WRONG & actually strengthens his case that we’re sleepwalking towards DICTATORSHIP

The banning of the former TV presenter from Facebook and YouTube is an assault on free speech and free expression which needs to be forcefully resisted, whatever your views are on Icke’s theories on world governance.

I’m old enough to remember when David Icke was a television sports presenter. For the past thirty-five years or so he’s been putting his ideas out on how he thinks the world operates – and it’s fair to say he has caused plenty of controversy. Some people laughed at him, some agreed with him, some were indifferent. No one campaigned for him to be banned.

Recently though, that’s changed. Icke has been accused of “preaching hate” and of peddling “unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.” And now he's charged with promoting “toxic” and “dangerous misinformation” about Covid-19.

Congressman: Nancy Pelosi Blocking Investigation into Chinese Coronavirus Origins, Tax Money to Wuhan Lab

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) told Breitbart News this weekend that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would rather investigate President Donald Trump again than focus on the actual origins of the Chinese coronavirus and U.S. tax dollars that went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology from which intelligence officials increasingly believe the virus leaked.

Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel, Reschenthaler discussed his efforts to investigate tax dollars that flowed through a New York firm to the Wuhan lab. He said that Pelosi and House Democrats are not interested in holding the Chinese Communist Party accountable and, instead, want to focus their oversight efforts on politically harming President Trump again just like they tried and failed with the partisan impeachment last year and earlier this year.

City Passes Ominous Ordinance that Could Land People in Jail for Filming the Police

Frequent readers of the Free Thought Project know that filming the cops is not a crime. Despite this being a widely known provision — held up with multiple court precedents — cops continue to violate the First Amendment protected right of citizens to film the police. Now, an entire city is going after people who wish to film police and it is nothing short of tyrannical.

A report from Tuscon.com claims a new ordinance was passed to deter “cop-haters” but in reality tramples the First Amendment.

IRGC Navy warned US to leave drill area, will pursue them: Commander

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy chief has said a recent incident with US forces in the Persian Gulf happened as they entered a drill area despite despite having been warned in advance not to approach it.

Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri said US forces will be pursued in the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman.

“They had entered our training area while it had already been announced that drills would be held there...hence, they were ordered to leave,” he said.

Last month, the US Navy Central Command alleged that 11 IRGC vessels had “harassed” up to six US ships in the Persian Gulf.

The claims were firmly rejected as “baseless” by Iranian officials.

The IRGC issued a statement describing the American allegations as “Hollywood tales”, detailing that the incident happened after an American vessel repeatedly harassed an Iranian boat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, this is a very dangerous game; tensions need desperately to be diffused here, and not accelerated.

Of course, it is not helping things, that the US refuses to negotiate with Iran in good faith; and I seriously hope that there is some kind of brokered agreement to put off any military combat between both countries, before something irreversible happens here.

Dems deploying DARPA-funded AI-driven information warfare tool to target pro-Trump accounts

An anti-Trump Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal is planning to deploy an information warfare tool that received initial funding from DARPA, the Pentagon’s secretive research arm -- transforming technology originally envisioned as a way to fight ISIS propaganda into a campaign platform to benefit Joe Biden.

The Washington Post first reported that the initiative, called Defeat Disinfo, will utilize "artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media," and then attempt to "intervene" by "identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country — in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is nothing compared to the techdisinfo moves this country is planning against its own citizens... for having had the temerity to question official narratives.

It appears that George Orwell's brilliant book "1984" is being utilized by governments around that world as a "how-to" manual, rather than as a cautionary tale; and folks, this is very scary.

2009 H1N1 Vaccine Caused Brain Damage in Children. Dr. Anthony Fauci on “Vaccine Safety” Issues: Don't Let It Happen Again

In 2009, NIAID Director Anthony Fauci was firmly in support of a multibillion dollar H1N1 vaccine project

Today he is an avid supporter of a COVID-19 vaccine.

What he fails to acknowledge is that the 2009 H1N1 Vaccine caused brain damage in children.

It was developed by Glaxo Smith Kline which today is at the forefront of the COVID-19 vaccine initiative.

Dr. Faucy addresses the H1N1 Vaccine Safety Issue in this video (starting at 6?.5o”).

Scroll down for the reports on H1N1 vaccine scam.

NIAID Director Fauci supported the H1N1 2009 vaccine which turned out to be a multibillion dollar scam.

According to International Business Times UK in a 2014 report

Patients who suffered brain damage as a result of taking a swine flu vaccine are to receive multi-million-pound payouts from the UK government.
The government is expected to receive a bill of approximately £60 million, with each of the 60 victims expected to receive about £1 million each.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is why we have to approach a Covid-19 vaccine infinitely more carefully than was the N1H1 vaccine was developed; brain damage, folks, in these cases, is permanent and irreversible.

The Trump Regime’s Latest Diabolical Anti-Iran Scheme. With the Support of Bibi

US domestic and geopolitical diabolical aims are humanity’s greatest threat, a nation hostile to virtually everything just societies hold dear — with super-weapons able to extinguish life on earth and willingness to use them.

China and Iran are in the eye of the Trump regime’s storm — Beijing for its growing economic, industrial, technological, political and military strength.

In Iran’s case, it’s for its vast hydrocarbon resources the US seeks control over, along with wanting Israel’s main regional rival state neutralized — despite no threat to any nations posed by the Islamic Republic.

Machiavellian Pompeo’s latest anti-Iran scheme reinvented history.

Defying reality, he falsely claims the Trump regime never left the JCPOA.

Despite unlawfully abandoning the Security Council adopted agreement, making it binding international and US constitutional law, Pompeo turned truth on its head, claiming Washington remains a “participant state.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real problem for the Trump administration, is that the embargo is over as of Friday, 23 October, which gives it a very steep curve of 11 days before the US elections on 3 November.

IF some kind of military activity by the US will be focused against Iran, my suggestion is that it will be far sooner, to be able to influence US elections in Trump's favor.

And of course, let's not forget the 3,000 lb gorilla, restfully draped over the Bosendorfer Grand Piano in the living room; that, my friends, is Russia.

Iran won't be alone, of the US attacks it, Russian official says.

It would be horrific for the US to go to war against Iran, only to find itself at war with Russia as well.

And please remember, as the world has witnessed in Syria; Russian military equipment does precisely what its manufacturers say it will do, why there is such a demand, globally, for these products.

And the "best of the best" the US has to offer?!?

Israel Behind Air Strikes in Syria Directed against Hezbollah. “Greater Israel” in the Making?

Tensions have worsened in the Middle East. Apparently, the Israeli government is promoting an escalation of violence in Syria with the aim of expelling any trace of Iranian presence from the country, leading to the collapse of relations between Tehran and Tel Aviv. On April 28, Israel’s Defense Minister, Naftali Bennet, made a public statement in which he suggested that he was behind an air strike against pro-Iranian forces in Syria. Still, Naftali made it clear in his speech that there is a focus by the Israeli armed forces to completely destroy the Iranian presence in Syria, not stopping the attacks until the objective is achieved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Even now, the Iranian regime and its proxies are working in an effort to harm the State of Israel and its citizens”.

Defense Minister Bennet, can you actually explain precisely what you mean by that last statement?!? Can you please quantify what you mean when you say that "The Iranian regime and its proxies are working in an effort to harm the State of Israel, and its citizens?!?

Because, sir, I will tell you, and I have observed the Iranian government since the fall of the US-imposed Shah of Iran, and that is, that the Iranian leadership may be many things, but stupid is not one of them.

Iranians do not want war with Israel; but Israel has decided to invade the sovereign country of Syria, and what the Iranians are doing here, has to do with supporting Syria's sovereignty.

And I would further politely suggest, sir, that Iran is not an "existential threat" to Israel; the threat, sir, and we both know this to be the case, is economic in nature, rather than existential.

Netanyahu could get on a plane to Tehran tomorrow, and do something amazing; create a peace and economic development plan with Iran, which would include all kinds of economic cooperation, and military peace between the two countries, but he won't.

And why is that?!?

Because he, just as does the President and his advisors, want their people afraid, of whoever the "enemy du jour" is. Fear is debilitating, and clouds the ability to think rationally, so that any nonsense fed to fearful people, will be believed, without question.

I, frankly, prefer to think, and be both reasonable and logical, rather than be fearful: and so do a great number of your brother and sister Israelis, sir.

You need to remember that, in future statements of this nature.

Israel’s unity government ushers in endgame for two states

It took one year, three elections and a global pandemic, but Israel finally has a new government, and this time, it is one with a broader mandate than any other in recent memory.

This is mostly thanks to Benny Gantz who repeatedly said that he would not join a government led by Benjamin Netanyahu, only to join a Netanyahu-led government at the third time of asking.

He did so under the pretext of creating an emergency government to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. But this is not a government established to deal with any emergency. This is a government with the specific brief of determining when and over what further areas of territory occupied in 1967 Israel will start applying its sovereignty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable; and who will champion any peaceful, legitimate claims of the Palestinian people?!?

Apparently, nobody.

The US military’s plans to cement its network of African bases

Internal documents from the US military’s Africa Command (Africom) reveal ambitious plans to extend and reinforce a network of low-profile military bases and outposts across the continent. The files detail more than $330-million of spending, including a list of “prioritised” military construction projects planned to be carried out from 2021 to 2025. This is designated for infrastructure investments on US bases stretching across Africa. The files also suggest that Africom’s long-term planning extends for up to 20 years.

The formerly secret documents, issued in October 2018, detail 12 construction projects planned for four US outposts in three countries — Djibouti, Kenya and Niger — that have long been integral to US counterterrorism and counter-violent extremist missions in Africa, suggesting these efforts will continue in the years ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... While the infrastructure in this country is crumbling, and homeless Vets sleep rough in our streets?!?

These moves are engineered to enhance the fortunes of the already monied, and has zero to do with taking care of real priorities here at home.

It is about destabilization of country leaderships hostile to the US; installing US-centric governments, and insuring that the raw materials of that destabilization means that whatever natural resources that country may have, will only be sold in American dollars.

The pattern is so obvious to any thinking person, that I am appalled that there is no more peaceful outcry here, about the ultimate, and costly, results of these US foreign policy trajectories.

Bill Gates Worked To End Livestock Production, Pushed Lab Grown Meat

By Daniel Taylor

Bill Gates and food giant Tyson heavily backed lab grown meat research.

As the United States faces unprecedented meat shortages due to processing plants going offline in response to the coronavirus, a long-standing globalist agenda to halt meat consumption is being fulfilled.

Tyson foods recently warned that the food supply chain is “breaking.”

Lockdowns have created a situation in which farmers have nowhere to send their product, and in turn millions of animals are being slaughtered. Additionally, vegetables that would normally end up on store shelves are rotting in the field.

Despite this reality, Twitter has announced that talk of food shortages will be censored.

Lab grown meat producers are hoping that the COVID-19 outbreak could boost public acceptance.

As Bill Gates was working to establish a worldwide digital ID system prior to the pandemic, he was also working to end meat production and funding lab grown “meat.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was about to ignore this article, due to a particular stench of at least a certain degree of paranoia; however, in doing my research, some other solid bits and pieces started surfacing, regarding the Gates' "palette" for lab-grown meat, and the following articles should be of great interest to all our readers.

What Taylor got wrong was Gates' collaborator, as being Tyson, rather than Branson.


Bill Gates and Richard Branson are betting lab-grown meat might be the food of the future
The article goes on to state:

"Bill Gates has invested in lab-grown meat companies, as has Richard Branson. “Raising meat takes a great deal of land and water and has a substantial environmental impact,” Gates wrote on his personal blog, Gatesnotes.com, a few years ago. “Put simply, there’s no way to produce enough meat for 9 billion people. Yet we can’t ask everyone to become vegetarians. That’s why we need more options for producing meat without depleting our resources.”

What the plow and lab-grown meat tell us about innovation, by Bill Gates

"Investors like Tyson and Cargill could put ‘clean meat’ on grocery shelves within three years.

Traditional meat production is ecologically devastating, and a growing world population could make farm-raised animal meat unfeasible by 2050.

Billionaires, including Bill Gates, say there is no way to produce enough meat traditionally to feed the world population of the future.

For lab-grown meat start-ups, going after $50-per-pound foie gras makes as much sense as grocery-store staples like burgers and chicken nuggets."

Memphis Meats' Lab-Grown Meat Raises $17M With Help From Bill Gates And Richard Branson

And when the Covid-19 virus began to close down slaughterhouses, what a more marvellous opportunity to test the willingness of Americans for test-tube meat?!?

The one thing of which one can never accuse Bill Gates, is NOT being an incredible opportunist, if he believes the time is right, which he may, or may not be, his assessment here.

Right now, I am about to contact a big box producer of steaks, and place an order; because in this push for test-tube meat, this most likely will push good, natural, real meat and chicken, through the roof on prices, so as to become unattainable for all but the very wealthy; but of of course, that won't bother Mr. Gates at all.

BILL GATES PARTNERS WITH DARPA & DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FOR NEW DNA NANOTECH COVID19 VACCINE!

SOURCE: SPIRO SKOURAS

In this powerful interview, Spiro is joined by Whitney Webb and Ryan Cristian from The Last American Vagabond, as they discuss the rollout of a new system of control the likes of which the world has never seen.

It has been said to never let a good crisis go to waste and it appears the ones pulling the strings are taking full advantage of the current crisis as more and more evidence emerges contradicting the official story that suggests this crisis is no accident.

The fact that Bill Gates has teamed up with the Department of Defense and DARPA, which is the special project research and development arm of the pentagon to develop a brand new type of vaccine, which is being rushed into production is alarming to say the least.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Mr. Gates' record on vaccine safety, has been.... shall we say, singularly uneven?!?

Deaths in a trial of the HPV vaccine

And although Gates has the financial and political muscle not to have been sued over this debacle, one does have to wonder why so many kids died here.

Robert Kennedy Junior Exposes Bill Gates' Vaccine Dictatorship plan, cites "twisted Messiah Complex The article goes on to state:

"In 2010, the Gates Foundation funded a trial of a GSK’s experimental malaria vaccine, killing 151 African infants and causing serious adverse effects including paralysis, seizure, and febrile convulsions to 1,048 of the 5,049 children.

During Gates 2002 MenAfriVac Campaign in Sub-Saharan Africa, Gates operatives forcibly vaccinated thousands of African children against meningitis. Between 50-500 children developed paralysis. South African newspapers complained, “We are guinea pigs for drug makers”

Nelson Mandela’s former Senior Economist, Professor Patrick Bond, describes Gates’ philantropic practices as “ruthless” and “immoral”.

RevContent InArticle SOLO
In 2010, Gates committed $10 billion to the WHO promising to reduce population, in part, through new vaccines. A month later Gates told a Ted Talk that new vaccines “could reduce population”. In 2014, Kenya’s Catholic Doctors Association accused the WHO of chemically sterilizing millions of unwilling Kenyan women with a phony “tetanus” vaccine campaign.

Independent labs found the sterility formula in every vaccine tested.

After denying the charges, WHO finally admitted it had been developing the sterility vaccines for over a decade.

Similar accusations came from Tanzania, Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines.

A 2017 study (Morgensen et.Al.2017) showed that WHO’s popular DTP is killing more African than the disease it pretends to prevent. Vaccinated girls suffered 10x the death rate of unvaccinated children.

Gates and the WHO refused to recall the lethal vaccine which WHO forces upon millions of African children annually.

Global public health advocates around the world accuse Gates of – hijacking WHO’s agenda away from the projects that are proven to curb infectious diseases; clean water, hygiene, nutrition and economic development.

They say he has diverted agency resources to serve his personal fetish – that good health only comes in a syringe.

In addition to using his philanthropy to control WHO, UNICEF, GAVI and PATH, Gates funds private pharmaceutical companies that manufacture vaccines, and a massive network of pharmaceutical industry front groups that broadcast deceptive propaganda, develop fraudulent studies, conduct surveillance and psychological operations against vaccine hesitancy and use Gates’ power and money to silence dissent and coerce compliance.

In this recent nonstop Pharmedia appearances, Gates appears gleeful that the Covid-19 crisis will give him the opportunity to force his third-world vaccine programs on American children."

So folks, is this REALLY the guy you want at the proverbial "tip of the spear" of US Vaccine programs, where vaccines might be mandated, which haven't been fully vetted, because they are so lucrative to the pharmaceutical companies with which Gates is presently involved?!?

I'm just saying... let's think about this, long and hard.

GOV. NEWSOM SAYS CALIFORNIA WENT FROM SURPLUS TO 'TENS OF BILLIONS IN DEFICIT' IN WEEKS, WON'T GET BY WITHOUT FEDERAL HELP

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Newsom Says California Went From Surplus To 'Tens Of Billions In Deficit’ In Weeks, Won’t Get By Without Federal Help
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) says the nation’s most populous state has flipped from 'tens of billions in surplus’ to deficits over the course of weeks.

"Last year I did a May revise with a $21.4 billion budget surplus," Newsom said on Friday during his daily coronavirus briefing, according to Bloomberg. "This year I will be doing a May revise looking at tens of billions of dollars in deficit. We just went tens of billions in surplus in just weeks to deficits."

Newsom, a first-term Democrat, is scheduled to revise his budget proposal by May 14 with the latest estimates on revenue and spending. In January, he proposed a $153 billion general-fund budget that increased spending by about 2% from the current year that ends June 30 and socked away about $5 billion more into rainy day funds. -Bloomberg

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those entitlement programs are unfunded mandates, which can immediately make any state's balance sheets turn red.

And of course, Republicans are loving the pain, in Democratic-dominated states like California, because they think that it may cause both "regime change" in the Senate and House, as well as in gubernatorial elections.
