NANOTECHNOLOGY: ONE WORLD, ONE BRAIN

BY JON RAPPOPORT
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”

The recent arrest of Harvard pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, Charles Lieber—on charges of lying to federal authorities about his business connections to China—has exposed wide-ranging relationships among American and Chinese researchers.

These relationships include, above all, the open sharing of sensitive technologies that, once upon a time, would have been considered closely guarded state secrets. (See my recent piece, “Behind the explosive Charles Lieber scandal.”)

Here are quotes from the journal Nano Today, from a 2019 paper titled: “Nanowire probes could drive high-resolution brain-machine interfaces”. Its authors are Chinese and American:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The hidden, and current history, of these technology transfers, is chilling in its scope, and implications for the future of this technology.

CHINA DEPLOYS AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS AND DRONES TO FIGHT VIRUS OUTBREAK

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
XAG Co., Ltd. was selected by the Chinese government late last month for the deployment of its ground-based robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to spray powerful disinfectants across public places in cities where the Covid-19 outbreak is the worse.

XAG is using a fleet of R80 Agricultural Utility Vehicle robots with 80-liter (21 gallons) sprayers for ground-based disinfectant operations across public places.

The company tweeted several pictures of the R80 in action, spraying disinfectant across a "parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou."

XAG
@XAG_official
Our farm #robot R80 has stepped forward to join the #fightcoronavirus operation, disinfecting parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou. Lightweight, flexible to traverse small districts, R80 can disinfect an area of up to 64800 square metres per hour, with no dead ends.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but most disinfectants... are anti-bacterial; what we are dealing with here, with the coronavirus, is... a virus, not a bacteria.

Were I a Chinese citizen, reading this blurb, I would be infinitely more comforted understanding that some of the chemicals in this disinfectant were actually anti-viral, rather than just specifically anti-bacterial.

COP GETS 7 YEARS AFTER ARRESTING PEOPLE FOR HEROIN, STEALING IT FROM DEPT, SELLING IT

SOURCE: JACK BURNS
(Support Free Thought) -

Haywood County, NC — A Haywood County detective was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison this week for breaking into the evidence locker and dealing heroin. Kevin Smathers was terminated from the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) in August 2018 after his crimes were discovered and the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI) was asked to come and investigate. During his time as a detective, Smathers was undoubtedly responsible for putting drug dealers behind bars—only to become one himself.

After the scandal came to light, the Sheriff’s Office asked for outside auditors to take inventory of the evidence room. Following the audit, in the Spring of 2019, Smathers was indicted on 16 counts of breaking and entering (Evidence Room) and 1 count of trafficking opium or heroin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My question is, why did it take so long to discover that this cop had gone rogue, before the audit was scheduled, and charges were brought against this man?!?

‘Could Be the Biggest Discovery Ever’: Archeologists Think They May Have Found Nefertiti’s Tomb

Queen Nefertiti’s tomb may indeed be hidden behind the walls of the 3,300-year-old tomb of King Tutankhamun, archeologists led by former Egyptian minister of antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty believe.

In an unpublished academic report which was recently presented to Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities and seen by Nature, archeologists studying Tut’s tomb reported on their use of ground-penetrating radar, discovering what they say is a hidden corridor-like area just meters from Tutankhamun’s burial chamber.

Chernobyl in the USA: Thrilling new movie reveals how a heroic lawyer found the US giant behind Teflon was pumping out a deadly molecule that causes cancer and deformities for YEARS - and it's in 90 per cent of us

n a thick, almost unintelligible Appalachian accent, Wilbur Tennant described how everyone else in his West Virginia town had ostracised him after he’d pointed the finger of blame at DuPont, the chemical giant whose huge plant dominated the town.

Rob Bilott, the lawyer he’d rung in desperation, was so confused he was about to hang up — when the farmer said he knew Bilott’s grandmother. As a favour to her, he agreed to meet the aggrieved cattleman.

His spur-of-the-moment decision would lead, after a dogged investigation stretching into years, to Bilott uncovering one of the biggest industrial scandals in U.S. history.

Worms Frozen for 42,000 Years in Siberian Permafrost Wriggle to Life

Did you ever wake up from a long nap feeling a little disoriented, not quite knowing where you were? Now, imagine getting a wake-up call after being "asleep" for 42,000 years.

In Siberia, melting permafrost is releasing nematodes — microscopic worms that live in soil — that have been suspended in a deep freeze since the Pleistocene. Despite being frozen for tens of thousands of years, two species of these worms were successfully revived, scientists recently reported in a new study.

Only three US states can test for coronavirus, says public lab group

California, Nebraska and Illinois are the only U.S. states that can currently test for coronavirus, the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) told Reuters on Friday.

The CDC planned to send replacement materials to make the kits work.

Food Supply to Collapse after Outbreak? Billionaires Predict “Global Problems”

Agenda 21/2030 asymmetric war on humanity: although superficially counter-intuitive, releasing a virulent, persistent and deadly pandemic like the CoronoaVirus into China first benefits the globalist agenda.

As the totalitarian government in China allows the ruling clique to do what it wishes with the Chinese people: quarantines, forced vaccines, exclusion zones, round-ups, mass detentions, hospitals and 'deathatoriums', crematoriums ... all can be quickly built and implemented as regard for human rights and due process in China are limited.

In the United States, still a functioning democracy, response times will be slowed by 'due process', allowing the pandemic to gain a stronger foothold, its devastating effects on U.S. health, infrastructure, supply chains lasting longer. As China quickly recovers, the United States will still languish as a result of this disease.

Chinese Coronavirus Patient Reinfected 10 Days After Leaving Hospital

In retrospect, the CDC will soon be proven correct in its dire warning that repatriating a full plane of both infected and healthy individuals could be a catastrophic error, because it now appears that not only can the virus remain latent for as long as 42 days, 4 weeks longer than traditionally assumed, resulting in numerous false negative cases as infected carrier slip across borders undetected, but far more ominously, it now appears that the diseases can re-infect recently "cured" patients, because as Taiwan News reports, a Chinese patient who just recovered from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has been infected for the second time in the province of Sichuan, according to local health officials.

On Wednesday (Feb. 19), the People's Daily reported that a man in Sichuan's capital Chengdu had tested positive for the virus during a regular check-up just ten days after being discharged from the hospital. The report said he had previously been cleared of the virus by medical staff.

Red Algae Extract Fights Ebola … and HIV, SARS and HCV

While researchers scramble to develop a vaccine or monoclonal antibody against the Ebola virus – and continue to develop chemo treatments to stem HIV and Hepatitis-C while fearing SARS – nature has already provided a natural treatment.

Research has shown that a healthy strong immune system can allow a person to not only avoid contracting the disease – but become resistant to it as well.

For those of us who need help or extract assurance, red algae proves to provide a key antiviral.

COVID-19 DISASTER: 9 Die in Iran of Coronavirus, Qom City to be Quarantined by Military

Total disaster hits Iran! Iran could be almost entirely infected… here’s why. Last night 2 men from Qom who called the ambulance were already very sick and dying, they were taken to the hospital immediately but the doctors couldn’t do anything to help them as their condition was already way too late for them so they both died.

Since last night until today, new cases have already been discovered in other cities such as Arak and Iran International is reporting that 7 more have died, including a 5 year old girl.

SOUTH DAKOTA CONSIDERS FIRST STATE BILL TO OUTLAW ALL VACCINE AND MEDICAL MANDATES

SOURCE: AGE OF AUTISM
Who owns your body?

A growing number of legislators in South Dakota believe you do.

They have introduced a bill to not only end vaccine mandates in the state, but all future medical mandates that my be introduced in generations to come.

One hundred and fifteen years ago this month, the US Supreme Court made a decision that because there was a deadly smallpox epidemic, the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts was allowed to charge a pastor five dollars to opt out of a city wide vaccine mandate. The law didn't apply to children.

That precedent has been the basis for the mandate of dozens of now liability-free vaccines for children and adults, where no epidemic (or even one case) exists, at the costs of thousands, or even hundred of thousands, per year to opt out. It is even the basis on which the Supreme Court ruled that women can be force sterilized, for the good of themselves and society, of course.

HOW CHINA IS WORKING TO QUARANTINE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
“Censorship, diversion, and lying.”

Google’s core principals?

*I crack myself up*

This piece is useful in understanding state behavior, in general, and their large, lapdog media and social networking organizations.

Via: DefenseOne:

In its battle to contain the coronavirus, the Chinese government has undertaken a wide range of measures, from shutting down cities to using drones to monitor and compel public compliance with public health edicts. But the regime is also waging a second battle: a campaign to control the world’s discussions of the first.

The weapons in this information war are Beijing’s massive media and online control mechanisms. Its three prevailing tactics—all too common across authoritarian regimes and wider online warfare— are censorship, diversion, and lying. China’s efforts show how an online battle for public security sometimes works in opposition to public health, and it reveals the priorities of an authoritarian regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world's scientific community needs to implore Chinese leadership, in the most gentle, logical, and responsible way possible, that this cover-up, will be what will be remembered in world history, not how this actually came to happen.

To the Chinese political and scientific leadership, please; this is a time when humankind needs to come together and collaborate, to come to better understandings of what can be done to fight this virus intelligent, rapidly, and humanely.

"It Looks Like A Zombie Apocalypse": City Streets Deserted Amid Surge In Korean COVID-19 Cases

Seemingly overnight, the public attitude toward the coronavirus outbreak in South Korea has gone from simmering apprehension to full-blown paranoia. And nowhere is that more apparent than in Daegu, the country's fourth-largest city, with a population of 2.5 million people - roughly one-tenth of the South's total population.

As the South Korean government debates whether to raise the alert level, the mayor of Daegu has asked all of the city's residents to avoid venturing outside as the government tracks down, tests and quarantines all the members of a church where an infected woman is believed to have spread the virus to more than 40 people.

Supernovae could be bombarding Earth with COSMIC ‘BULLETS’ travelling at 3,000km a second, scientists warn

Earth is bombarded daily by small meteors measuring between 1mm and 10cm wide, most of which hit the atmosphere at speeds faster than 17km per second. However, Harvard University physicists Amir Siraj and Prof. Abraham Loeb suspect that some meteors could hit our atmosphere while travelling at a fraction of the speed of light – somewhere in the region of 3,000km per second.

Behind the explosive Charles Lieber scandal

The sensors will transmit all this information, through the emerging Internet of Things—using the 5G pipeline—to medical centers—where AI corporate and government analysts will confirm the disease diagnoses and prescribe treatments.

Eventually, a few billion people (patients) would, through these sensors in their bodies, be hooked up to the 5G Internet of Things.

However, as I’ve reported many times in these pages, the standard definitions of diseases and disorders are often incorrect, or even invented. But because the future system I’ve just sketched is automated, the patient is enclosed in a fake and dangerous bubble. Among other problems, the disease treatments, the drugs, are toxic.

What is the technology that is on the way to producing these body sensors?

Nanoscience. Nano-engineering.

Chinese Regime Deploys 1,600 Online Trolls To Suppress Information On Coronavirus

Authored by Cathy He and Eva Fu via The Epoch Times,

The propaganda department in virus-stricken Hubei Province has engaged over 1,600 censors to scrub the internet of “sensitive” information relating to the coronavirus outbreak, according to an internal document obtained by The Epoch Times.

The internal report, dated Feb. 15, detailed the agency’s efforts to ramp up censorship measures. It was drafted after a speech given by Chinese leader Xi Jinping via video link on Feb. 10 to “frontline responders” of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, where the virus first broke out.

The revelations come as the Chinese regime tightens information controls over the worsening outbreak, as netizens have increasingly turned to the internet to vent their frustrations about the authorities’ response, or document what is happening on the ground.

“Wages Slavery and Chattel Slavery”

As the Lowell system of factory work became more prevalent, so too did the public debate over the justice and morality of such labor. Labor organizers routinely called for a reduction in working hours, citing the ill effects upon the health and morale of workers. Although legislators were often slow to intervene in freely-entered contracts between management and labor, in most states, protective legislation of various kinds did eventually pass, if only to alleviate the concerns and criticisms of labor reformers like Orestes Bronson and William West.

The abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglas after several years of experience as a “free man” concluded: “experience demonstrates that there may be a slavery of wages only a little less galling and crushing in its effects than chattel slavery.”

Kansas Man Facing 25 Years For Cannabis That Stopped Chronic Seizures

Kansas has got to be the worst state to get busted in for pot. They have actually let medical marijuana patients die in their jails. Corrupt to the core!

A Kansas resident is facing 25 years in prison for growing a single marijuana plant. Larry Burgess, a cancer survivor, turned to marijuana when prescription drugs failed to alleviate his seizure disorder.
No Cannabis Love in Kansas

“No seizure medication helped. In fact, my seizures got progressively worse over time. It was terrible. Terrible. At my lowest I contemplated suicide,” Burgess told KCTV5 News. At one point, he was taking 23 pills per day to combat the seizures with little effect.

Fredonia, Kan., authorities were possibly tipped off when Burgess chronicled his marijuana-growing endeavors on Instagram.

Trump Issues Pardon for Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

As with so many “news media” reports now it’s what is NOT REPORTED that is the real news. The following is a case in point. Whether intentional or not, key elements are missing in the NBC report and they constitute the pivotal point in the following story.

Comment – JuneBug1415 on Reddit
Bernard Kerik accepted a “loan” of $250k from Israel billionaire when meeting with Israel to discuss counter-terrorism 2 weeks before 9/11. And oh yea, he was the police commissioner that oversaw 9/11, was pardoned today.
Today Trump has granted clemency or pardoned 11 people all convicted of corruption. But the one that bothers me the most is Kerik.
He accepted a $250,000 interest-free “loan” from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer and failed to report it. Kerik first met the billionaire, whose vast holdings include major defense contractors, when Kerik took a four-day trip to Israel less than two weeks before September 11, 2001 to discuss counter-terrorism with Israeli officials.

This article from Jan 17, 2017, is looking increasingly prescient.

Trump belongs to the Zionist faction. Does this portend another world war?

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

What is Donald Trump's place in the big picture?

Trump is a Freemason and probably a crypto Jew. He is surrounded by Jews. The Masonic Jewish (Illuminati) goal is the reduction of the human race (goyim) to the status of domestic animals serving them. We see this emergent pattern in the gross disparities of wealth in today's world.

The Illuminati advance this agenda through mind control (mass media, education) and war. They can't subjugate humanity alone; they need the goyim to destroy each other.

New Estimates Suggest Chinese Tech Shipments Are About To Crash

Now that Apple has opened the floodgates and made it entirely clear that China's economic collapse will slash revenue guidance on the year and lead to production woes through April, an onslaught of earnings downgrades from other top technology companies with significant operations in China could be imminent.

Evidence grows by the day of supply chains grinding to a halt as the second-largest economy in the world falters (as described here last week)...

We've described how China's economic output remains frozen, and even if supply chains were able to restart, companies don't have enough capital to cover wages, or have delayed or stopped paying workers, suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak has left businesses on the brink of disaster. Worse, workers can't freely move around the country, and many are subjected to travel restrictions and quarantines, which has forced a massive labor shortage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all of you who like your "big box shops", whatever the names of those venues might be; if there is any stuff you buy which originates in China, now might be the time to stockpile, because with Chinese factories and fulfillment centers shut down, it might be quite a while before those products come in again.

China To Change Definition Of Coronavirus "Infection" Again In Pursuit Of Fewer Cases

The move, which stunned markets sending futures sharply lower as the carefully crafted narrative that China was regaining control over the coronavirus epidemic, was the result of Beijing's intention to appear "transparent" with the public and to concede that the situation was worse (but not far too worse) than officially represented, especially amid the flood of media reports showing infected (and not infected) Chinese citizens getting carted away against their will to places unknown, even as hundreds of random people would fall dead, their final moments caught on camera. As a result, the province of Hubei, epicenter for the Coronavirus infection, changed the definition of infection and loosened its diagnosis criteria by starting to classify as “confirmed” cases that were clinically diagnosed by physicians, instead of purely validated by a genetic test.

“There was not a single infection control professional on the ship, nor anyone professionally involved in infection prevention. The bureaucrats were in charge of everything.”

“There is no clear distinction between the green (healthy) zones and the red (potentially infected) zones. And the staff is running back and forth,” Iwata reported.

Bats, Gene Editing and Bioweapons: Recent Darpa Experiments Raise Concerns Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

In recent weeks, concern over the emergence of a novel coronavirus in China has grown exponentially as media, experts and government officials around the world have openly worried that this new disease has the potential to develop into a global pandemic.

As concerns about the future of the ongoing outbreak have grown, so too have the number of theories speculating about the outbreak’s origin, many of which blame a variety of state actors and/or controversial billionaires. This has inevitably led to efforts to clamp down on “misinformation” related to the coronavirus outbreak from both mainstream media outlets and major social media platforms.

CONFIRMED: CoVid-19 coronavirus found to contain unique “gain-of-function” property “for efficient spreading in the human population” … exact quote from science paper just published in Antiviral Research

A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Antiviral Research (Vol. 16, April 2020) is entitled, “The spike glycoprotein of the new coronavirus 2019-nCoV contains a furin-like cleavage site absent in CoV of the same clade.”

It reveals that the CoVid-19 coronavirus contains unique features that allow it to function as a more efficient weapon system for human-to-human transmission, which helps explain why the virus has been impossible to contain (even under “quarantine” conditions, which have universally failed in China, Japan, Korea and elsewhere).

The active volcano — known locally as 'The Black Giant' — appears to be developing an unstable western side, or 'flank', which could lead to a colossal landslide.

Such a collapse could cause widespread damage in the surrounding area — which includes Baños de Agua Santa, the second most populous city in the region.

Researchers are recommending that Tungurahua be closely monitored to keep an eye out for signs of an flank collapse.

'This possible instability we have detected could led to a collapse one day, in a thousand years or never,' said geophysicist James Hickey of the University of Exeter.

What’s a political strongman to do when his economy is weak and another round of financial turbulence is on the way? When political support is languishing and a series of budget-busting construction projects has people shaking their head in dismay?

The answer is obvious: he invades another country in order to distract attention and give his poll numbers a boost. Better yet, he invades two countries and then travels to a third in order to make highly bellicose comments about a forth. Then while the press back home buzzes with excitement, he folds his hands and prays that somehow it will all work out.

Avoiding space debris might require new legal framework, US lawmakers say

The ever-growing number of satellites and orbital debris in space prompted calls for change at a House hearing, although how this will be legislated is still under consideration.

At issue is the rise of privately owned satellite constellations by companies such as SpaceX and OneWeb. Satellites today are smaller and more affordable than the big machines of past decades, thanks to advancements in technology. But with fleets of small satellites comes other risks, such as more chances for them to slam into each other. And high-profile near misses are starting to become more common.

"This is one of the most important and rapidly evolving issues facing our ability to operate in space," said Kendra Horn, D-Okla., chair of the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, in her opening statement at the hearing in Washington, on Feb. 11.
