For the Week of 6/29/20:

Cultural Collapse. BLM Protesters Burn US Flag On July 4, Pull Down Christopher Columbus Statue As Young Americans Know Nothing About Independence Day – “The United States Independence Day (July 4) was marked by a new wave of Black Lives Matter protests widely supported by various hard core neo-liberal activists, organizations and the Democratic establishment… In aprticular, protesters burned a US national flag near the White House in Washington… Meanwhile, Campus Reform YouTube channel released a video showing how much young Americans really know about the Independence Day itself and how they view their homeland. Spolier: They barely know what the country celebreates… Protesters in Baltimore celeberated the 4th of July using ropes to pull down a statue of Christopher Columbus in the city’s Little Italy neighborhood. According to them, the statue is somehow ‘racist’… The United States has apparently entered the new great neo-liberal, pro-globalist era and attempts of the conservative part of the society to resist the current destructive tendencies seem to be not enough.”

Trump Signs 5-Week PPP Extension With Fiscal Cliff Looming – by Tyler Durden – – “Citing a Bank of America report, we noted how the economy is facing fiscal cliffs which could cause the recovery to disintegrate, with four particular areas of focus: 1) expiration of extended unemployment insurance, 2) the fading support from stimulus checks, 3) exhaustion of PPP, 4) stress from state and local aid gov’ts… “In summary, after July 31, the US economy is set to fly off a fiscal cliff that could be just as painful as what happened in late March/April unless there is a bipartisan agreement in Congress on trillions more in fiscal stimulus. The clock is now ticking,” we noted.… Could the Democrats have the Trump administration at a so-called checkmate? Dems could easily send the economy off a fiscal cliff by withdrawing support for the next round of stimulus, something that could affect the president’s reelection odds.”

An “Ominous Disconnect” – What Powell & Lagarde Should Have Told The G-7 – by Egon von Greyerz – – “With low or zero interest rates and the value of money constantly declining, there is clearly no incentive to save whatsoever. Also, governments and central banks are setting very poor examples… But how can you expect people to be prudent when their governments and central banks have for decades been running deficits and printing money. Debts and deficits are the mantra of modern finance. But what no one seems to understand is that this mantra has become a chronic disease which is killing the world a lot faster than the coronavirus… The world’s central banks are now in the process of outshining both Weimar and Zimbabwe. Together with governments they have globally printed and borrowed $18 trillion since CV started. And since the Great Financial crisis started in 2006 they have more than doubled global debt from $125 trillion to over $275 trillion but that is just the beginning… We talk about billions, trillions and quadrillions as if we understood what it means but nobody really does. It is absolutely impossible to fathom what a trillion is. Let’s start by counting to one trillion. It will take you 32,000 years. And then you would have to count very fast, never hesitate nor make a mistake – nor start from the beginning again. Ok, so the $18T just created globally, how long would that take? Almost 600,000 years.”

Whose Conspiracy Is It, Mr. Johnson?—CHD’s Response to FCC General Counsel’s Op-Ed in the Washington Post – by Susan Foster and Dafna Tachover – – “The Washington Post published a June 4, 2020 Op-Ed “5G conspiracy theories threaten the U.S. recovery” by Thomas M. Johnson, Jr., General Counsel for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Mr. Johnson employed fallacious straw-man arguments by dramatically pointing his finger at the wrong target in order to avoid the real problem: his client, the FCC, and those like the Washington Post’s owner, Jeff Bezos, who is heavily invested in 5G. All Mr. Johnson really did is confirm Harvard University’s Center for Ethics’ publication showing that the FCC is a “Captured Agency” that has “overlooked, sacrificed, or raided” “consumer safety, health, and privacy, along with consumer wallets,” “due to unchecked industry influence.”.. You bring in a straw-man to mercilessly thrash in order to shift attention from the opponent’s real argument. Mr. Johnson resorts to this tactic because he knows the FCC and its industry masters cannot prevail on the merits. A proper argument would be “stop worrying about 5G, here is the latest science to prove that 5G is safe!” But he cannot do so because the FCC lacks even a single study showing 5G is safe.”

U.S. Files Suit to Seize Gasoline in Four Iran Tankers Headed to Venezuela – “U.S. prosecutors late on Wednesday filed a lawsuit to seize the gasoline aboard four tankers that Iran is shipping to Venezuela, the latest attempt by the Trump administration to increase economic pressure on the two U.S. foes… In the civil-forfeiture complaint, the federal prosecutors aim to stop delivery of Iranian gasoline aboard the Liberia-flagged Bella and the Bering, and the Pandi and the Luna, according to the lawsuit, first reported in the Wall Street Journal. It also seeks to deter future deliveries… The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, also aims to stop the flow of revenues from petroleum sales to Iran, which Washington has sanctioned over its nuclear program, ballistic missiles, and influence across the Middle East. Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.”

Steven Donziger Backed By Canadian Lawyers, NLG, IADL And Alec Baldwin Against Chevron – “The Harvey Weinstein” Of Oil Industry – by Aaron Kesel – – “On September 17th, I (Paul Paz y Miño) testified on behalf of Donziger at a formal bar licensing hearing in New York, where for the first time witnesses were able to address the facts of Chevron’s fraud in bringing its retaliatory civil RICO (“racketeering”) case designed to try to undermine the legitimate $9.5 billion judgment won by Ecuadorian communities in 2011… Several witnesses at the hearing explained how Chevron and its lawyers at the infamous Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher firm – led by Randy Mastro, former deputy mayor to Rudy Guiliani – engaged in unethical and illegal acts to target Donziger based largely on the testimony of a corrupt witness who was paid at least $2 million by the company and who later admitted to lying under oath. Many respected lawyers, authors, and activists also testified on Donziger’s behalf. Without exception, all described Donziger as a man dedicated to justice in Ecuador on behalf of Chevron’s victims, who was framed by Chevron and its corrupt witness Alberto Guerra, who claimed without any corroborating evidence that Donziger had approved a bribe to a judge,” Paul Paz y Miño, Amazon Watch’s Director of Outreach wrote.”

Church Singing Banned in California – New guidelines issued by the Department of Public Health restricts religious activities by Jack Murphy – – “*Places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower. Local Health Officers are advised to consider appropriate limitations on outdoor attendance capacities, factoring their jurisdiction’s key COVID- 19 health indicators.”

Does the Next Presidential Election Even Matter? – by The Saker – – “This is why I submit that the next election will make absolutely no difference: 1) The US system is rigged to give all the power to minorities and to completely ignore the will of the people; 2) The choice between the Demolicans and the Republicrats is not a choice at all; 3) The systemic crisis of the US is too deep to be affected by who is in power in the White House; 4) Simply put, and unlike the case of 2016, the outcome of the 2020 election will make no difference at all. Caring about who the next puppet in the White House will be is tantamount to voting for a new captain while the Titanic is sinking. The major difference is that the Titanic sank in very deep water whereas the “ship USA” will sink in the shallows, meaning that the US will not completely disappear: in some form or another, it will survive either as a unitary state or as a number of successor states. The Empire, however, has no chance of survival at all. Thus, anything which contributes to make the US a “normal” country and which weakens the Empire is in the interests of the people of the USA. Voting for either one of the candidates this fall will only prolong the agony of the current political regime in the USA.”

The privilege they erased from history. (37 min)- by Dana AshlieI was aware of much of this peripherally, but here it is, head-on.

UK High Court Denied Venezuela’s Control Of $1bn Gold In London Bank – “On July 2, the UK High Court ruled against Venezuela’s government in a legal battle over access to $1bn (£820m) of gold stored in the Bank of England. It claimed that it will be ‘unlawful’ to give it to the government of Nicolas Maduro since the UK does not recognize him as president of the Latin American nation.

The US, the UK as well as several other US ‘allies’ recognize the foreign-controlled leader of the opposition Juan Guaido as the leader of the country. Despite this, the rule self-proclamed ‘Venezuelan President’ Guaido in Venezuela does not extend beyond his twitter account. …However, the British government just seized the Venezuelan gold in an apparent act of modern financial piracy. Indeed, this is a common approach for Western states. In June 2020, it was also revealed that the Trump administration used $601m seized from Venezuela-linked bank accounts in the US to fund the border wall with Mexico.”

Russia Deployed Radars In Former U.S. Airfield In Northeast Syria: Monitoring Group – “According to the monitoring group, a Russian convoy consisting of ten armored vehicles, communication systems and two radars entered the Sarrin airfield. The radars and the communication equipment will be installed there… The deployment of radars indicates that Russian forces are working to develop the Sarrin airfield, which is located near the border town of Ayn Arab, also known as “Kobane.” The radars may be a part of a new early warning and air-defense network meant to cover northeast Syria.”

Why The US Empire Works So Hard To Control The International Narrative About Russia – by Caitlin Johnstone – – “And this is also why so much effort gets poured into controlling the dominant international narrative about nations like Russia which have resisted being absorbed into the US power alliance. If you have the influence and leverage to control what narratives the international community accepts as true about the behavior of a given targeted nation, then you can do things like manufacture international collaboration with aggressive economic sanctions of the sort Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is currently calling for in response to the the completely unsubstantiated narrative that Russia paid Taliban fighters bounties to kill occupying forces in Afghanistan… In its ongoing slow-motion third world war against nations which refuse to be absorbed into the blob of the US power alliance, this tight empire-like cluster of allies stands everything to gain by doing whatever it takes to undermine and sabotage Russia in an attempt to shove it off the world stage and eliminate the role it plays in opposing that war. Advancing as many narratives as possible about Russia doing nefarious things on the world stage manufactures consent for international collaboration toward that end in the form of economic warfare, proxy conflicts, NATO expansionism and other measures, as well as facilitating a new arms race by killing the last of the US-Russia nuclear treaties and ensuring a continued imperial military presence in Afghanistan.”

Erdogan Vows Government Control Of Social Media Over Insults On Twitter – Addressing his party’s provincial leaders on conference call, Erdogan threatened new legislation by the year’s end to stringently regulate “immoral” social media… ‘Do you understand why we are against social media such as YouTube, Twitter and Netflix? To eradicate such immorality,’ Erdogan said… Abdullah Bozkurt (tweet): @abdbozkurt… Today, #Turkey‘s President declared his intention to kill all social media outlets, the last remaining platform for independent and critical journalism. His gov’t already shut down 187 media outlets, jailed 175 journalists & forced 168 into exile.… He said his government is determined to introduce legislation that would force social media companies to establish a legal presence in Turkey… The requirement would mean they could be held financially accountable and forced to respond to Turkish court decisions…. Erdogan blamed the issue on global social media companies, based in Western nations for “turning a blind eye” to Turkey: ‘We experienced similar attacks in the past. The lack of monitoring on these platforms have a role in the rise of this sort of immoral behaviour,’ he said… ‘These platforms do not suit this country. We want these platforms to be banned, taken under control.’.. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said a number of social media users had been detained overnight for allegedly posting insulting tweets.” (emphasis added)

COVID CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY? (2hr 17min) – The HighWire with Del Bigtree

Is This Torture? (43 min) – by Amazing Polly – Polly digs into a report from Amnesty International from 1975 with an eye on actual effects on people from the over-reaching Covid guidelines everywhere.

Modelers Were ‘Astronomically Wrong’ in COVID-19 Predictions, Says Leading Epidemiologist—and the World Is Paying the Price – by Jon Miltimore – – “Ioannidis also said a comprehensive review of the medical literature suggests that COVID-19 is far more widespread than most people realize… ‘There are already more than 50 studies that have presented results on how many people in different countries and locations have developed antibodies to the virus,’ Ioannidis, a Greek-American physician, told Greek Reporter. ‘Of course none of these studies are perfect, but cumulatively they provide useful composite evidence. A very crude estimate might suggest that about 150-300 million or more people have already been infected around the world, far more than the 10 million documented cases.’.. Ioannidis said medical data suggest the fatality risk is far lower than earlier estimates had led policymakers to believe and “is almost 0%” for individuals under 45 years old. The median fatality rate is roughly 0.25 percent, however, because the risk “escalates substantially” for individuals over 85 and can be as high as 25 percent for debilitated people in nursing homes.”

E. Michael Jones: Amazon Burned My Books—It’s an Outrage!_on Kevin Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio – ““We were up to between 40 and 50 ebooks. And then one of the usual suspects noticed that one of my books was called Jewish Privilege. And not only did they notice that, it turns out that on Amazon’s terms it was a bestseller. And when this happens, someone’s going to complain. And someone did. And I was forced to take down Jewish Privilege. At that point, I had done a review of a series on Amazon Prime. This series is called Hunters. It is the most flagrant incitement to racial hatred, hatred of anyone that these people deem a Nazi…and also violence! We have Al Pacino playing the Jewish Nazi hunter, and he tells his young protegé to kill these people! And when the protegé says ‘isn’t that wrong?’ Pacino says ‘It’s not murder, it’s mitzvah!’ This is an incitement to violence. So I said this in the review I wrote. And they not only banned the review, they banned all of my Kindle books—for complaining that they were spreading hatred and violence. Which they were.”

UN: May See “New Normal” On Other Side Of 5-Year Global Depression – by Patrick Wood – – “But there is also a second, bleaker scenario in which countries fail to coordinate their actions. New waves of the virus keep occurring. The situation in the developing world explodes. Work on the vaccine lags — or even if there is a vaccine relatively soon — it becomes the subject of fierce competition and countries with greater economic power gain access to it first, leaving others behind… In this scenario, we could also see greater movement toward fragmentation, populism and xenophobia. Each country could go it alone or in so-called coalitions of the willing to address some specific challenges. In the end, the world would fail to mobilize the kind of governance needed to address our shared challenges… The result may well be a global depression that could last at least five or seven years before a new normal emerges, the nature of which is impossible to predict… After all, we cannot simply return to the systems that gave rise to the current crisis. We need to build back better with more sustainable, inclusive, gender-equal societies and economies… In doing so, we must reimagine the way nations cooperate. Today’s multilateralism lacks scale, ambition and teeth — and some of the instruments that do have teeth show little or no appetite to bite, as we have seen in the difficulties faced by the Security Council… We need a networked multilateralism, in which the United Nations and its agencies, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, regional organizations such as the African Union and European Union, trade organizations and others work together more closely and effectively… We also need a more inclusive multilateralism. Governments today are far from the only players in terms of politics and power. Civil society, the business community, local authorities, cities and regional governments are assuming more and more leadership roles in today’s world… This, in turn, will help lead to an effective multilateralism with the mechanisms it needs to make global governance work where it is needed.” -Antonio Guterres, UN Technocrat-In-Chief (Secretary-General) (emphases added)

BLM Activist Is Arrested for Attempted Murder As Democrats Cower In Silence – by Alex Stevens – – “Early Wednesday morning, a Black Lives Matter activist was arrested for attempted murder after shooting a man in an SUV at a recent “protest.” Of course, you’ll never see this reported anywhere in the mainstream media as the Democrats cower in silence. In fact, there’s an actual video of the event, but the Democrats are making sure no one sees it. Don’t miss this.According to the Provo Police Department, 33-year-old Jesse Taggart of Salt Lake City was arrested on charges of attempted aggravated murder, aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, rioting, threatening the use of a weapon in a fight or quarrel, criminal mischief, and firing a weapon near a highway… There’s actually a video of the incident, which clearly shows the driver of the vehicle barely creeping forward trying to escape being mobbed before he’s shot by a man wearing a mask… ‘There is no ambiguity here about who the shooter was and who he supported. His social media included pro-BLM material, though his presence at the protest alone would be enough proof if he were of a different political persuasion,’ Red State reports.

People losing their homes ‘could triple’ in coronavirus as families face mounting debt – Generation Rent claimed around 45,000 households could become homeless if surveys on the level of arrears during Covid-19 are to be believed – – “And previous Shelter research suggests about 2% of private renters are in arrears at any given time… But surveys have suggested a rise of varying degrees during lockdown, with the Resolution Foundation finding 13% of private renters in the UK are behind on payments… If the percentage of renters in arrears has tripled compared to pre-pandemic levels, and evictions for this reason increase at the same rate, around 45,000 households could become homeless, Generation Rent estimates… This is based on 15,030 private rental households being made homeless as a result of eviction from rent arrears in 2019, according to Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) data.”

The War On Cash – COVID Edition Part II – by Claudio Grass – “On the other hand, the future could instead be bright, if we take the other path, towards decentralization, free competition and individual financial sovereignty. If we instead choose to break the state monopoly of money and allow private digital currencies to compete, a myriad of different solutions will emerge to serve a myriad of different needs. Savings can be accommodated though physical gold-backed digital currencies, real assets can be tokenized to facilitate and secure physical property sales, specialized cryptocurrencies can offer privacy and untraceable transactions. Far from a pipe dream, many solutions like these already exist, while others are in the making. There is therefore a choice about what kind of future we want and it is us, as individuals, that must make it.”

Maxi-Bust in Italy for ISIS Kamikaze’s Drug-Pills. Business or Restocking for Jihadists in Europe? – by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio – – “The sensational and brilliant operation of the GICO (Organized Crime Investigation Group) of the Guardia di Finanza conducted in the port of Salerno with the ISIS maxi-drug seizure in part belies the idea of ​​the unattended ports that have made on the Italian peninsula the Americans. Indeed in US there are the main traffickers and drug dealers as recalled by the Pizza Connection operation conducted by the FBI together with the magistrate Giovanni Falcone killed by Cosa Nostra in Sicily, assassinated in an attack with a military explosive perhaps because of his investigations into these lucrative trades.” – The Captagon story is an important wrinkle in the whole narrative of the Western Powers’ creation of the proxy fighters used to prosecute Imperial Wars throughout the world.

California Coronavirus Update: Gov. Gavin Newsom Orders L.A. Restaurants, Movie Theaters To Shut Down Indoor Operations, Deploys Enforcement “Strike Team” – by Tom Tapp – – “At his noon coronavirus press conference, Gov. Gavin Newsom made good on his promise to “toggle back” reopenings in California by ordering restaurants once again to shut down dine-in service. This applies to all locales on the “county monitoring list” for at least three consecutive days. There are 19 counties on that list, and Los Angeles in one of them… Restaurants still will be allowed to offer food for pickup or delivery… The guideline to cease indoor operations for three weeks also includes movie theaters, restaurants, indoor family entertainment businesses, card rooms and zoos. Over the weekend, the governor ordered bars and nightclubs closed… Newsom said he is hoping that people will comply with the guidelines voluntarily. If they do not, the governor said he is deploying a “strike team” of government agencies to ensure compliance, especially where it concerns workplaces. Alcoholic Beverage Control, CalOSHA, the Department of Business Oversight, the Department of Consumer Affairs and the California Highway Patrol are among the agencies that will be enforcing the guidelines… ‘We will have these agencies use their regulatory authority in six regions of the state,’ a state official said at the press conference, ‘This will begin today.’.. ‘We have a duty,’ the governor said, to ‘go after’ those who are not complying.”

BREAKING: Alleged Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell arrested – by Paul Goldberg – – “She was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire around 8:30 a.m. on charges she conspired with Epstein to sexually abuse minors, and is expected to appear in a federal court later today, the sources say… The six-count indictment in Manhattan federal court alleges that Maxwell helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14 years old, going back as far as 1994… ‘In some instances, Maxwell was present for and participated in the sexual abuse of minor victims,’ the indictment says.” – Speculation: Ms Maxwell is likely deeply depressed, and may commit suicide…

And Now for Something Completely Different: Most interesting thing I’ve seen in months: Dr. Jacqueline Hobbs (1hr 20min)

How a US and Qatari regime change deception produced ‘Caesar’ sanctions driving Syria towards famine – by Max Blumenthal – – “Authorized by Congress with no opposition, the so-called Caesar Civilian Protection Act amounts to an act of all out war on the very people it claims to protect. Targeting the Syrian Central Bank and penalizing any foreign company that does business with Damascus, the bill was conceived with the explicit aim of preventing the country from rebuilding after it defeated a proxy war imposed on it by the West, Israel, Turkey, and Gulf monarchies… Charles Lister, a Gulf-backed de facto lobbyist for the Syrian opposition in Washington, inadvertently revealed the Caesar Act as an instrument of financial terror. In an op-ed for Politico this June, he forecasted “even greater levels of destitution, famine, and worsening criminality and predatory behavior” as a result of the new sanctions… Predicting that “bread shortages are only a matter of time,” and projecting a famine in the near future, Lister cheerfully framed the human suffering caused by the sanctions as “an opportunity” for the United States to achieve regime change.” – Comment: The brutal UK/U.S./Anglo-Zionist war against the people of Syria continues…

Video: Police investigating after driver pushes through line of protesters in Provo, gunshot reported (w/Video) – by Kyle Dunphey and Sahalie Donaldson – – “Protests against police brutality in Provo took a tense turn Monday night as a white Ford Excursion pushed through a line of protesters blocking traffic at the intersection of North University and Center Street and a gunshot was reported… Another video by KSL-TV shows what appears to be a man in a mask pointing a gun at the passenger side of the white Excursion as it pushes forward. A loud popping sound is heard and a flash is seen from the barrel of the gun.” – Comment: The video in this article shows 2 members of Antifa blocking an intersection who have handguns and are, apparently, willing to use them on people. Things seem to be moving in some dark directions.

COVID Increasingly Being Used to Medically Kidnap and Traffick Children – by Brian Shilhavy – – “This past Friday (June 26, 2020) US District Judge Dolly Gee ordered the release of migrant children who are currently being held in ICE family residential centers, due to fears of COVID-19 spreading… While this may sound like a good thing on the surface, it is not. Judge Gee only ordered that the children be released, but not their parents or adult family members. She left the decision to release adult family members of the children up to ICE… This is a peculiar ruling, given that children have almost a ZERO chance of dying from COVID, while older adults with pre-existing conditions are most at risk… So if the children’s parents or other adult family members are not released, where will the children go? They are to go to “non-congregate settings” that include “suitable sponsors.” This is basically the foster care system, which we know is the main pipeline for supplying child sex slaves in child trafficking.” – Note: Article contains links to other information on child trafficking in the context of the coronavirus scare.

American Couple Face Lash Back After Confronting Protesters at Gunpoint – by Laura Steinberg – – “A video has circulated widely on social media shows a man and woman protecting their property on Sunday evening in the Central West End neighborhood in Missouri… The video showed the man carrying a semi-automatic rifle with the woman holding a pistol as while some protesters stood outside their home and others continued to walk by… The couple who stood with guns while on their property could now possibly face legal consequences… A Saint Louis University lawyer said their behavior could potentially be labeled as an assault by making protesters afraid for their safety… “People have a right to threaten force if they are threatened,” Lawyer John Amman said to KSDK. ‘However, if a group of protesters is walking by a home and not doing anything to the homeowners specifically, then they don’t have the right to threaten lethal force without an imminent threat.’.. Allegations are being investigated about protesters breaking into the neighborhoods and destroying gates. It is unclear how the protesters were able to get into the upscale neighborhood of the couple with the firearms were residents in.”

For the Week of 6/22/20:

My 3-Step Process for negotiating the difficult times ahead (as sent to a friend): 1) Help those who are willing to look at the truth to wake up to the agenda of control. 2) Take the needed actions to restore non-hierarchical organization to human systems. 3) Educate all of humanity to their own creativity and power, and prevent anyone from suppressing that again, as long as we can do this in peaceful and ethical ways. – Caveat: Non-hierarchical systems cannot be restored by asking the Hierarchs / Rulers to do this for us.

Resisting the New World Order and Disinformation – News You May Not Have Heard Yet – by Brian Shilhavy – – “The world is unraveling very fast before our very eyes. If you are someone who still believes that everything that has been happening has been unfortunate circumstances beyond our control, stop right here and read no further… Almost everything we are seeing today is being played out like a well-written script, with a master plan being put into place for a New World Order. I will provide some links at the end of this article for evidence of this, articles on the New World Order that we have published during the past couple of months… For those who are not being spoon-fed the propaganda being passed off as “news” in the corporate “mainstream” media, and instead are making great efforts to learn the truth by monitoring the alternative media, I want to present some news here that you may have missed during the past 7-10 days, as even I cannot report on this stuff fast enough to stay current.”

Minneapolis Council Members Who Voted To Dismantle Police Caught Hiring Private Security On Taxpayer Dime – by Erin Flockhart – – “The city has spent $63,000 over the last 3 weeks to provide security for Andrea Jenkins of Ward 8, Phillipe Cunningham of Ward 4, and Alondra Cano of Ward 9, FOX 9 reported on Friday… The security detail, which is being provided by two firms, Aegis and BelCom, cost $4,500 a day… The three city council members say they that have been receiving threats after George Floyd died on Memorial Day once a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes despite his pleas for air… “I don’t feel comfortable publicly discussing the death threats against me or the level of security I currently have protecting me from those threats,” Cunningham told local news outlets, also explaining that this is a temporary situation.”

How We Arrived At The Globalist Calls For A “Great Reset” – by Steven Guinness – – “Looking back, 2015 was a highly significant year that saw global planners state quite openly their ambitions for a New World Order to be implemented over the next decade and a half… First came the unveiling of the United Nation’s derived Agenda 2030 in September, and with it seventeen main objectives known as the Sustainable Development Goals. Agenda 2030 was adopted by the 193 members of the UN, with adoption coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the institution’s existence… Chief amongst the seventeen goals were to end poverty by 2030 and for there to be zero hunger. Action on climate change was also needed, as was the creation of sustainable cities and communities and good health and wellbeing (which the UN directly associate with vaccinating families)… Agenda 2030 replaced the Millennium Development Goals, which were introduced in 2000 and encompassed a series of targets to be completed by 2015. According to the UN, ‘enormous progress‘ had been made ‘but more needs to be done‘… ‘If they’re going to be met we’re going to have to see huge amounts of money. We’re going to have see governments behaving in a completely different way. We’re going to have to see companies totally changing their business practices. It can be done, but the real question is whether we want to do it enough.’ – Comment: “What you mean “we,” white man?” -Tonto to the Lone Ranger (apocryphal)

David Stockman On What Could Happen If The Fed Loses Control – interview by International Man – – “Here’s an eye-opener to put this madness in perspective. Annual federal outlays posted at $3.896 trillion in 2014 and were the product of 225 years of relentless expansion by the Leviathan on the Potomac… But it now appears quite certain that the annual deficit in FY 2020 will actually be larger than the total spending level that took more than two centuries to achieve… That’s right. Owing to the mushrooming coast-to-coast soup lines hastily erected by Washington in response to the collapse of jobs, incomes and business cash flows brought on by Lockdown Nation and the evaporation of tax revenues, Uncle Sam will borrow more this year than the total spending just six years ago… Stated differently, back in the day, we struggled to keep total federal spending during 1981 under $700 billion. By contrast, the Donald has borrowed nearly 4X that in the last 90 days!”

The unthinkable has happened: DCFS removes child from home because the parent had covid-19 – by Lance D Johnson – – “The LA County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) successfully convinced a judge to remove a child from a home because his parent tested positive for covid-19. Is this the “new normal?”.. Los Angeles attorney Christopher Arash took to social media with the news: ‘Today in dependency court madness, LA County Dept. of Children and Family Services (DCFS) recommended that the court remove my client’s child from their physical custody after the parent tested positive for COVID-19. This is a non-offending parent. The judge ruled in favor of DCFS and detained.’.. ‘Let that sink in . . . DCFS is asking for children to [be] removed from their parents’ custody due to COVID-19 despite the parent making the appropriate arrangements for their child.’ The family is currently filing an appeal, a writ of habeas corpus to have their child returned. There are reports of other attorneys in the Los Angeles area facing similar challenges.”

Residents And Businesses Sue Seattle For Allowing Autonomous Zone – by Sandy Malone – – “A group of 18 residents, businesses, and property owners fed up with the chaos in their neighborhood have filed a lawsuit against the city of Seattle for allowing the illegal occupation of the area around the police department’s East Precinct to continue without interference… The plaintiffs in the lawsuit complained that city officials have been complicit in depriving them of their rights to their own properties by allowing the Capital Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), formerly known as the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), to continue unabated, KING reported… In the suit, the plaintiffs’ attorneys made it clear their clients didn’t oppose the Black Lives Matter message or cause…”

Black Lives Matter Leader: If America ‘Doesn’t Give Us What We Want, We Will Burn Down this System’ – by Joshua Caplan – – “Appearing Wednesday on the Fox News Channel’s The Story with host Martha MacCallum, Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome warned that if the United States ‘doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.’.. A partial transcript is as follows:…”

Can We Trust An FDA Approved, DARPA Funded, Under-the-Skin Biosensor to Detect Signs of Illness? – by B.N. Frank – – “The Defense Department is helping to fund a new study to determine whether an under-the-skin biosensor can help trackers keep up — by detecting flu-like infections even before their symptoms begin to show. Its maker, Profusa, says the sensor is on track to try for FDA approval by early next year… The sensor has two parts. One is a 3mm string of hydrogel, a material whose network of polymer chains is used in some contact lenses and other implants. Inserted under the skin with a syringe, the string includes a specially engineered molecule that sends a fluorescent signal outside of the body when the body begins to fight an infection. The other part is an electronic component attached to the skin. It sends light through the skin, detects the fluorescent signal and generates another signal that the wearer can send to a doctor, website, etc. It’s like a blood lab on the skin that can pick up the body’s response to illness before the presence of other symptoms, like coughing.”

FDA Criticized as COVID Tests Still not Accurate, But U.S. Starts Second Lockdown Anyway – by Brian Shilhavy – – “In reviewing the list of In Vitro Diagnostics products on the FDA website that have received Emergency Use Authorizations, the FDA is contradicting its own claim and is authorizing the use of diagnostics tests that produce false results… There is a very easy way to confirm this statement, if you know where to look… From the list of In Vitro Diagnostic products that have received a EUA, select any manufacturer. Go to that manufacturer’s website. Select the test from the products listing… Look for the “package insert”. The package insert explains everything you need to know about the test, including its intended use, performance and interpretation of results… Using the ROCHE cobas® SARS-CoV-2 test from the list, go to the Roche website and read the emergency use statement: ‘Results are for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA that are detectable in nasal, nasopharyngeal, and oropharyngeal swab samples during infection… Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA; clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine patient infection status. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses.’

The ‘Can’ To Be Kicked-Down-The-Road Is Just Too Damn Big – by Egon von Greyerz – – “If you want to understand the future, don’t spend your life preparing and constantly revising an Excel sheet with masses of economic data. Collective human behaviour is extremely predictable. But not by spreadsheet analysis but by studying history… HISTORY IS A BETTER FORECASTER THAN ECONOMISTS – There just is nothing new under the sun. So why is there so much time and money wasted around the world to make economic forecasts that are no better than a random job by a few chimps?.. Instead, give some lateral thinkers a few history books and let them study the rise and decline of the major empires in history. That will tell them more about long term economic forecasts than any spreadsheet… After a 50 year decline of the US economy and the dollar, we still hear about the V-shaped recovery being imminent… On what planet do these people live who believe that a world on the cusp of an economic and social collapse is going to see a miraculous recovery out of the blue.”

Oregon County Exempts Non-White People From Mandatory Face Mask Order – by Katherine Fung – – “Lincoln County in Oregon has exempted non-white residents from a new order mandating mask-wearing in public in an attempt to counter racial profiling… Last week, health officials declared face coverings would be required in public settings where individuals may come within six feet of someone outside their household after the county saw a spike in coronavirus cases… On Tuesday, the county said “people of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public” will be exempt from the order.”

Julian Assange Charged In Superseding Indictment By DOJ – by Tyler Durden – – “A federal grand jury returned a second superseding indictment today charging WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with offenses that relate to Assange’s alleged role in “one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the United States”, according to a DOJ statement… The new indictment does not add additional counts to the prior 18-count superseding indictment returned against Assange in May 2019. It does, however, broaden the scope of the conspiracy surrounding alleged computer intrusions with which Assange was previously charged… According to the charging document, Assange and others at WikiLeaks recruited and agreed with hackers to commit computer intrusions to benefit WikiLeaks.”

Defund The Thought Police – by Charles Lipson – – “Due process is not the strong suit of mobs. Neither is nuance, open discussion, or disagreement. These inherent defects should be painfully obvious as mobs pull down statues, seize sections of cities, and demand the public approach them on bended knee, literally. Anyone who dares push back, perhaps with a mild tweet saying “All lives matter,” faces immediate censure. If the mob is successful, any offenders will lose their jobs. Feckless employers are all too eager to appease the mob and hope it turns on another target… In this perilous environment, the most frenzied voices do more than dominate the public square. They monopolize it by silencing dissent. They have received full-throated support from the tech giants that control electronic discussion and the media giants determined to shape the narrative rather than report the news. Twitter and NBC are the poster children for this assault on free and open discussion. Their suppression in the name of “social justice” betrays the idea, best articulated in John Stuart Mill’s “On Liberty,” that competing, divergent views lead to greater understanding and better decisions.”

On V-Day, Russia Vows To Prevent US-Led ‘Regime Change’ In Venezuela – by Tyler Durden – – “On Wednesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov used the occasion of Moscow’s 75th anniversary V-Day parade commemorating the end of WWII to warn Washington against pushing regime change in Venezuela…Among other foreign dignitaries, Caracas’ top diplomat Jorge Arreaza was in Moscow for the events. Lavrov issued public statements of solidarity expressing support to the socialist country, calling it ‘a mainstay for countering the attempts to draw the region back into the 19th century and to impose the Monroe Doctrine.’.. ‘We strongly support your commitment to combating foreign diktat and any attempts at blatant interference in the domestic affairs of a sovereign state, opposing any attempts at a forced regime change,’ Lavrov said, as reported in Newsweek.”

Did Obama/Biden Lie? Strzok’s Newly Discovered FBI Notes Reignite “Obamagate” – by John Solomon – – “Investigators will need to secure testimony from Strzok, fired two years ago from the FBI, to be certain of the exact meaning and intent of his one paragraph of notes, which were made public in court on Wednesday… But they appear to illuminate an extraordinary high-level effort by outgoing Obama-era officials during the first weekend of January to find a way to sustain a counterintelligence investigation of Flynn in the absence of any evidence of wrongdoing… The Justice Department says the notes were written between Jan. 3-5, 2017, the very weekend the FBI agent who had investigated Flynn’s ties to Russia for five months recommended the case be closed because there was “no derogatory” evidence that he committed a crime or posed a counterintelligence threat. FBI supervisors overruled the agent’s recommendation… Strzok’s notes appear to quote then-FBI Director James Comey as suggesting that Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak “appear legit,” bolstering other recently disclosed evidence showing the bureau saw nothing wrong with Flynn’s behavior.”

This Way Lies Madness: The Summer of Hate Meets the Age of Intolerance – by John W. Whitehead – – “Marches, protests, boycotts, sit-ins: these are nonviolent tactics that work… Looting, vandalism, the destruction of public property, intimidation tactics aimed at eliminating anything that might cause offense to the establishment: these tactics of mobs and bullies may work in the short term, but they will only give rise to greater injustices in the long term… What started as a movement to denounce police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of killer cops has become a free-for-all campaign to rid the country of any monument, literal or figurative, to anyone who may have at any time in history expressed a racist thought, exhibited racist behavior, or existed within a racist society… The police state has got us exactly where it wants us: distracted, distraught and divided… While protesters topple statues of men with racist pasts who are long dead, unarmed Americans continue to be killed by militarized police trained to shoot first and ask questions later… And while politically correct censorship is attempting to sanitize the public sphere of words and images that denigrate minorities, it is not doing anything to rid hearts and minds of racism… Muzzling speech, censoring discourse, erasing history: that’s the worst possible antidote.”

Bayer Pays $10BN To Settle Thousands Of Monsanto Glyphosate Lawsuits – by Tyler Durden – – “After decades of widespread use as company scientists played down research showing a definitive link between the product and growing rates of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, Monsanto parent company Bayer has agreed to pay up to $10 billion to settle claims that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, causes cancer… Citing people familiar with the matter, German newspaper Handelsblatt reported that the company has agreed to settle tens of thousands of glyphosate-related lawsuits in the US for between $8 billion to $10 billion… Of that number, $2 billion is considered a “reserve” which can be used to settle future claims… The rest will be used to settle all of the lawsuits pending in the United States from users of the controversial weed killer, the number of active lawsuits against the Roundup purveyor recently numbered more than 50k… Talks for an out of court settlement have been ongoing since last summer.”

Expectations vs. Reality of Globalization – Time to Reflect in Hard Times – by Henry Kamens – – “Some in the East claim they still remember what it means to lose freedom. But in the communist era, people looked outward for freedom, to the so-called West. Where can they look now?.. Many in the East, and in developing countries also remember hunger and food shortages. As such, they can see more clearly than Americans what is happening there at this time. They are no longer seduced by the American Dream, of the stories of rags to riches and of capitalism being the cure for everything. They see Americans discovering an East European reality they never used to know… Countries must be able to at least feed and clothe their citizens and provide for their basic needs without having to depend on others. You can call this isolationism if you don’t like it, or self-sufficiency if you do. I prefer to call it both, as the semantic distinction does not matter. It is a matter of survival, and as the adage goes, ‘don’t put all your eggs in one basket.’.. But none of this is what we were all promised when we thought capitalism was the best alternative. People brought up under other systems turned against those because they didn’t work either, even when they were as intellectually convincing as Marxism.”

Burundian President Nkurunziza Dies Suddenly after Expelling WHO for False Pandemic – by Joaquin Flores – – “President of Burundi Pierre Nkurunziza, 55, has died “following a cardiac arrest”. The sudden death comes as a surprise as he had been evaluated recently as being in good overall health… Less than a month ago, the Burundian government ordered the expulsion of experts from the World Organization of Health (WHO) responsible for ‘advising’ on the false pandemic COVID-19… The President and his Ministry of Foreign Affairs had declared that the WHO representatives would henceforth be ‘persona non grata’, that is not welcome on Burundian territory. For information, to date, and despite its courageous opposition to the WHO, Burundi officially declared only one COVID death.”

America’s Own Color Revolution – by F. William Engdahl – – “The protests since May 25 have often begun peacefully only to be taken over by well-trained violent actors. Two organizations have appeared regularly in connection with the violent protests—Black Lives Matter and Antifa (USA). Videos show well-equipped protesters dressed uniformly in black and masked (not for coronavirus to be sure), vandalizing police cars, burning police stations, smashing store windows with pipes or baseball bats. Use of Twitter and other social media to coordinate “hit-and-run” swarming strikes of protest mobs is evident… What has unfolded since the Minneapolis trigger event has been compared to the wave of primarily black ghetto protest riots in 1968. I lived through those events in 1968 and what is unfolding today is far different. It is better likened to the Yugoslav color revolution that toppled Milosevic in 2000… In the Serb Otpor! destabilization of 2000, the NED and US Ambassador Richard Miles in Belgrade selected and trained a group of several dozen students, led by Srđa Popović, using the handbook, From Dictatorship to Democracy, translated to Serbian, of the late Gene Sharp and his Albert Einstein Institution. In a post mortem on the Serb events, the Washington Post wrote, ‘US-funded consultants played a crucial role behind the scenes in virtually every facet of the anti-drive, running tracking polls, training thousands of opposition activists and helping to organize a vitally important parallel vote count. US taxpayers paid for 5,000 cans of spray paint used by student activists to scrawl anti-Milošević graffiti on walls across Serbia.’ ”

EMPTY COFFINS – EMPTY HOSPITAL – Brazilian MPs Expose Biggest Covid-19 Hoax Known to Date (w/Video)- by Joaquin Flores – – “Members of the Brazilian parliament decided to confirm suspicions and break into a hospital that claimed to have 5,000 infected & 200 deaths from COVID-19, and found that the hospital had grossly over-represented the cases and its claims. There was in fact not a single person, they report, and the hospital was entirely empty and was obviously still under construction… Acting on a tip that something was going wrong at this hospital, five members of the Brazil parliament went to hospitals under encouragement by president Bolsonaro to break in & check to see the number of patients there… The governor is apparently defrauding the state and the nation along with the citizen taxpayers, and lying about the stats. This is possibly an embezzlement scheme to help bring down the country, and to push vaccines based upon inflated numbers of Covid related deaths.”

Rutherford Institute Warns Tech Giants: Attempts to Censor Unpopular Viewpoints Online Run Afoul of First Amendment – “Denouncing attempts by big tech companies and social media platforms to silence controversial, provocative and/or politically unpopular viewpoints, The Rutherford Institute has warned that any move to de-platform, shadowban, and demonetize users based on their viewpoints will subject private corporations working in conjunction with the U.S. government to the strictures of the First Amendment. In recent months, Google, Facebook, YouTube and other social media companies have taken steps to crack down on content that disputes accepted views on COVID-19; that could be considered “fake” news by establishment sources; or that could be perceived as promoting ‘hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination.’ ”

US mulling phased annexation, starting with areas close to Jerusalem – report – Concerned about the collateral damage that could follow from allowing Israel to move ahead with its planned annexation of areas of the West Bank, Washington is reportedly considering backing the annexation of only of a handful of settlements close to Jerusalem… Officials in the Trump administration are set to hold a decisive meeting this week on whether to approve Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s declared plan to start annexing the 132 West Bank settlements and the Jordan Valley — the 30 percent of the territory allocated to Israel under the administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan… Netanyahu has vowed to begin the process as early as July 1. However, US enthusiasm for such a move appeared to cool amid vociferous opposition from American allies in the Middle East.”

German officials threaten Naomi Seibt with prison for ‘denialism’ – “Though the two videos of which the Authority continues to complain would constitute a first offense – Naomi is only 19, after all, and cannot be expected to have known that free speech had been shut down in her part of Germany by an obscure and inspissate law – the Authority is trying to make her pay a fine of 1000 euros plus another 200 euros costs for each of the two videos: total 2400 euros. If she doesn’t pay, this is the threat these wretches have made: ‘If the enforcement of the penalty payment is unsuccessful, the competent administrative court may, upon application by the enforcement authorities, order first-time compulsory detention. The substitute compulsory detention is at least one day and at most two weeks.’.. You be the judges. Here’s the text of the first video the Authority wants to ban…”

The Governor’s Alarming Appellate Brief – by Kevin Kiley – – “If Gov. Newsom believes his Executive Order is lawful, he has a chance to make his case in the Superior Court on June 26. Yet instead, he’s filed a 39-page brief with a Court of Appeals making a meritless argument that he should get out of the restraining order on a procedural technicality… This sideshow, designed only for purposes of delay, is being conducted at untold public expense. Assemblyman Gallagher and I are representing ourselves at no cost to taxpayers, and we will soon be filling a formal Opposition Brief that identifies the legal problems with the Governor’s petition.”

US New Home Sales Plunge To 10 Year Low As Exodus From Cities Accelerates – by Tyler Durden – – “Despite record low mortgage rates, soaring mortgage applications, and a modest rebound in new home sales, existing home sales were expected to tumble further in May… April’s collapse was the largest since July 2010’s expiration of the first-time homebuyers credit, and May saw the plunge continue, falling 9.7% MoM (against expectations of a 5.6% MoM decline)… The median existing-home price for all housing types in May was $284,600, up 2.3% from May 2019 ($278,200), as prices increased in every region. May’s national price increase marks 99 straight months of year-over-year gains. But sales of $1mm-plus home crashed… ‘Although the real estate industry faced some very challenging circumstances over the last several months, we’re seeing signs of improvement and growth, and I’m hopeful the worst is behind us,’ said NAR President Vince Malta, broker at Malta & Co., Inc., in San Francisco… ‘NAR, along with our partners and 1.4 million members, are already working to reignite America’s real estate industry, which will be a key driver in our nation’s economic recovery.’.. As Upton Sinclair is believed to have said – ‘It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!’ ”

Here Comes Yield Curve Control: The Fed Is About To Unleash A Mindblowing Stock Rally – by Tyler Durden –“It depends on the form and the price but broadly speaking it’s the green light to carry on with the QE trade — buy everything regardless of valuation,” Aberdeen’s James Athey told Bloomberg… Perhaps the only question is just how powerful the surge in stocks will be once YCC is unveiled: the answer may depend on how much of the curve ends up being “locked out.” Recall that two months ago Credit Suisse repo guru Zoltan Pozsar said that YCC would only be needed for maturities through 3 years. However, Societe Generale sees a case for focusing further out the curve, expecting that 5- and 7-year Treasuries may rally if the Fed looks to go beyond controlling just the front end… As if it wasn’t enough that the Fed is now buying corporate debt, the capping of interest rates would also help by ensuring corporate borrowers continue to benefit from attractive financing rates, further detaching their fundamentals from their securities. Lower yields in longer maturities would assist investment-grade companies, which tend to issue longer-dated debt than lower-rated borrowers. Meanwhile, junk borrowers would reap the rewards of the general boost to market sentiment… Regardless of the risks, the notion that central banks are approaching some sort of curve control is here to stay, as is yet another milestone in central banks’ takeover of the bond market, as YCC will further eliminate any information about future inflation the yield curve would otherwise convey, leaving precious metals such as gold the only true inflation hedge. Still, as Bloomberg concludes, the key lesson from the 2008 crisis was that policy makers need to intervene quickly, and investors now expect them to consider any weapon at their disposal.”

UPDATE: New Silver Supply Is Drying Up Faster Than Death Valley – by Jeff Clark – – “The annual data for silver supply is in, and it shows that the structural decline in new supply for the silver market has strengthened. It is not temporary, and can’t be easily resolved or reversed… The main issue is the deterioration in mine production, although scrap sources are falling as well. This is important because much of the bullion you and I buy comes from newly-mined silver. Secondary sales (bullion products that have been previously bought and sold) will always have a place in the industry, but to be prepared for the kind of rush Mike Maloney sees ahead, mine production will need to be healthy and rising. It is neither of those things, as you’ll see… According to CPM Group, global mine production fell for the fourth consecutive year in 2019. This was before Covid-19 struck and temporarily shuttered operations, so a further decline this year is already baked in the cake. Most estimates I’ve seen are for silver mine output to drop by at least 10% in 2020… Mine production from primary silver companies also fell last year, by 3.8%. It, too, is expected to drop by double digits this year… What’s going on? It’s largely the result of declining grades at existing projects, a lack of new discoveries, and very few new mines coming online… All this is occurring at a time when demand for physical investment products is growing. CPM says bullion demand will grow 16% this year. It was up 12% last year, and prices were mostly flat—imagine what happens to demand when silver flies past $20… then $30… then $40. And if silver hits a new all-time high above $50, something we fully expect to happen, it will make global headlines and draw investors in like the proverbial moth to a flame.”

Tucker: There are two versions of the law (10 min) – Important arguments from Carlson for standing firm in support of absolute equality under the law, and for working against current attempts to create a highly divisive and prejudiced revolutionary regime in America.

Covid-19 will accelerate march of the robots – Tech revolution threatens an unemployment crisis in China and developed world after gathering pace during pandemic – By Gordon Watts – – “Still, the pace of change will generate a different set of problems, including the specter of unemployment… ‘China has dealt with large-scale layoffs or economic downturns by creating a massive state-run construction force. But, now, the people that may lose their jobs to automation may be the educated, skilled class in cities like Shenzhen and Shanghai. What’s China’s plan for them?,’ Prakash, the author of The Age of Killer Robots, said… Yet this has generated a backlash from the Chinese public. A study released to the media by Spanish university IE showed a rise in “robophobia” during the coronavirus crisis…. Before the pandemic infected more than nine million people worldwide, only 27% supported limited automation in China. That number has more than doubled to 59%, with the Chinese just behind the French as the most hostile to automation… But concerns persist. In developed and developing economies, the fallout from the coronavirus catastrophe threatens to trigger economic pandemonium and ballooning unemployment across the globe… The urban jobless numbers in China have been on the rise since the start of the year. For the upper echelons of the ruling Communist Party, unemployment is a notoriously sensitive subject… ‘It’s no longer just about janitors or truck drivers or factory workers. Everyone could be on the chopping block because the pandemic has fundamentally changed how businesses operate. There are now huge geopolitical risks as automation takes off,’ he added… Possibly, a revolution against a revolution?”

United Nations sides with Antifa terrorists, setting stage for UN invasion of America when Antifa backlash begins – by Ethan Huff – – “In a statement opposing President Trump’s recent designation of Antifa as a terrorist organization, the United Nations made a declaration that Antifa’s right to “peaceful assembly” is now under attack by the administration… A cohort of UN “experts” reportedly decided to post the flag of Antifa on the international body’s Twitter page along with a plea of ‘profound concern over a recent statement by the U.S. Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists.’.. In the UN’s view, Antifa is just like any other protest group that gathers peacefully to air grievances. And President Trump is getting in the way of this peaceful expression of Antifa’s First Amendment rights by classifying violent and destructive behavior as terrorism… ‘International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly,’ says Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism.”

Luongo: The US Is In Civil War (And Why Berman’s Firing Matters) – by Tom Luongo – – “The U.S. is in a Civil War. It began four years ago after Donald Trump’s election and has finally boiled over into open warfare here in 2020… From the moment the protests against the killing of George Floyd were hijacked into looting and rioting I worried about this turning into something far greater, something with a far higher purpose… Within a couple of days it was obvious the U.S. was now the subject of a color revolution of the same type and build up that occurred in places like Ukraine, Georgia, Egypt, Serbia and others… And it’s pretty clear the color for our revolution isn’t orange or brown or violet, it’s black… The questions I have are why this is happening now? The obvious answer is the full court press to deny Trump a second term. That’s a practically stated goal at this point… But I feel this is far deeper than that, and likely has to do with knowing that Trump has pieces in place post-Jeffrey Epstein raid/murder to upset the Deep State’s apple cart… And that brings me to why I’m interested in Hungary again.”

Nearly Half Of Americans Consider Selling Home As COVID Crushes Finances – by Tyler Durden – – “New research offers a glimpse into struggling households, discovers out of the 2,000 American homeowners polled, over half (52%) of respondents say they’re routinely worried about making future mortgage payments and nearly half (47%) considered selling their home because of the inability to service mortgage payments… The study, conducted by OnePoll and the National Association of Realtors, determined 81% of respondents had experienced unexpected financial stress due to the virus-induced recession. Over half (56%) reduced spending so they could service mortgage payments… In a separate report, more than 4 million homeowners are in mortgage forbearance plan – representing 7.54% of all mortgages, delinquencies are set to surpass the great recession, which peaked at 10%… Oxford Economics said 15% of homeowners would fall behind on their monthly mortgage payments in a ‘tidal wave’ of delinquencies, which was similar to the prediction by Moody’s chief economist, Mark Zandi, who said that as many as 30% of Americans with home loans – or around 15 million households, may stop paying if the US economy remains closed through the summer or beyond.”

It’s Official: 30% of Americans missed their housing payments in June – by Alicia Adamczyk – – “As the United States continues to face record unemployment due to the coronavirus pandemic, 30% of Americans missed their housing payments in June, according to a survey by Apartment List, an online rental platform… That’s up from 24% who missed their payment just two months earlier in April and about on par with the 31% who missed payments in May. Renters, younger and lower-income households and urban dwellers were the groups most likely to miss their housing payments, Apartment List found… At the same time that this “historically high” rate of Americans are missing their housing payments, eviction protections put in place at the beginning of Covid-19′s spread in the U.S. are beginning to expire. Additionally, the current 30 million unemployed Americans will lose the extra $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits at the end of July.”

Republican Voters In NJ Town Get Mailed Misprinted Ballots With Democratic Candidates Listed Instead – by Erin Flockhart – – “Many Republican voters in one New Jersey community got surprised after they opened their mail ballots for a July 7 primary… Their choices were all Democrats… Between 500 and 700 Republicans received the wrong ballots out of about 2,400 enrolled Republicans in Bernardsville, as reported by… ‘The slate of candidates was all Democrat from Joe Biden down to dogcatcher, but on the upper right it clearly stated it was a Republican ballot and it had my name and correct information on the return envelope,’ said Karen Gardner, the chairwoman of the Bernardsville Republican Municipal Committee… Usually, the Somerset County clerk’s office does the printing. But, after New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy ordered every voter to receive a ballot in the mail, the job was farmed out… ‘If we had had a greater lead time when we were sending out these ballots, we would have been able to do the ballot insertion in-house and this error would have been caught,’ Somerset County Clerk Steve Peter said.”

From the Official-Propaganda Desk: Venezuela’s rival presidents prepare to battle over gold in London vaults – by Angus Berwick and Mayela Armas, Reuters – – “In the vaults beneath the Bank of England, where foreign nations stash parts of their vast gold reserves, lie 1.7 billion euros ($1.9 billion) of disputed gold bars. Two parties claim access to them… Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says they belong to his administration’s central bank. His rival, opposition leader Juan Guaido, who the British government recognizes as Venezuela’s rightful leader, say the bars are his to control. Next week, a British commercial court will begin deciding whose claim is just, after the Venezuelan central bank (BCV) sued the Bank of England to gain access… A decision is not expected until August or September, the judge wrote in a May 28 ruling. At stake is a sizeable chunk of the Maduro government’s dwindling overseas assets. Lawyers representing the BCV say much of the gold would be sold to fund Venezuela’s response to the coronavirus, which threatens to overwhelm a health system gutted by six years of economic crisis… The opposition, still led by Guaido almost a year and a half after he began a parallel presidency, hopes a favorable verdict could influence other countries to hand them control of more Venezuelan assets, including $5 billion of state funds frozen in foreign bank accounts. ‘Without a doubt recognition from the court would be a very important precedent,’ Guaido’s chief overseas legal representative, Jose Ignacio Hernandez, told Reuters. The Bank of England has declined to comment on the case.”

For the Week of 6/15/20:

UN Deletes Pro-Antifa Tweet After Backlash – by Tyler Durden –“To the surprise of many, the United Nations has now issued a statement rebuking the White House attempt to impose the legal designation. Upon a UN statement being issued on Friday, counter-terrorism expert Max Abrahms at first thought it was a joke, but no it’s not The Onion: ‘UN #HumanRights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing #Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country. — UN Geneva (@UNGeneva) June 19, 2020… This even after there’s been widespread uncertainty and debate over just who or what the group actually is. Or Antifa might more appropriately be seen as a loosely defined movement espousing radical Leftist ideology. But the new UN statement appears positively supportive given it clearly asserted that Antifa is composed of mere “anti-fascist activists”. “If the Council were honest, it would recognize the strengths of American democracy and urge authoritarian regimes around the world to model American democracy and to hold their nations to the same high standards of accountability and transparency that we Americans apply to ourselves,” Pompeo added… Meanwhile, speaking of unusual and perhaps bizarre statements, one sheriff’s office in Louisiana issued this video “warning” to Antifa, which has also gone viral…”

“I, Who Hates Shorting, Just Shorted the Entire Stock Market. Here’s Why” – by Wolf Richter – – “Credit markets that had been freezing up for junk-rated companies suddenly turned red-hot, and speculators started chasing everything, including junk bonds sold by cruise lines and airlines though their revenues had plunged 80% or 90% and though they were burning cash at a stunning rate. The Fed’s newly created money went to work, driving up stock prices… But over the past six weeks something new was developing: While the Fed was talking about all the asset purchase programs it would establish via its new alphabet-soup of SPVs, it actually curtailed the overall level of its purchases… Then in the week ended June 10, the Fed’s total assets of $7.1 trillion increased by less than $4 billion. And in the week ended June 17, its total assets actually fell by $74 billion (you can read my analysis of the Fed’s balance sheet here). This chart of the week-over-week change in total assets shows how the Fed frontloaded its QE in March and April, and how it then systematically backed off… And now the market, immensely bloated and overweight after its greatest 50-day rally ever, has to stand on its own feet, during the worst economy in my lifetime, amid some of the worst corporate earnings approaching the light of the day, while over 30 million people lost their jobs. It’s a terrible gut-wrenching scenario all around… And so I stuck my neck out, and I’m sharing this trade for your future entertainment when it goes awry, and you get to have fun at my expense and hail me as the obliterating moron that infamously shorted the greatest stock market rally of all times as it was floating weightlessly ever higher above the worst economic and corporate crisis imaginable.”

5 Facts BBC’s “The Salisbury Poisonings” Forgot to Mention – by Kit Knightly – – “The BBC’s new drama “The Salisbury Poisonings” concluded over the weekend. A three-part story “based on actual events”, claiming to tell the story of the alleged poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in 2018.It’s exactly what you’d expect. Schlocky tat. Poorly researched, badly written and woefully factually inaccurate… The Guardian gave it four stars. Because of course they did. Because when you’re dealing with government-backed narrative everything that reinforces it must be described as having value. It’s one of the hallmarks of propaganda, that no story which supports the propaganda – however ridiculous – can ever be questioned, criticised or disputed… We’ll never know exactly who at the BBC decided to omit all these details. But we can make a pretty good guess as to why.”

Viral Images Of Putin’s ‘Cathedral Of War’ Like “A Glimpse Of An Alien Civilization” (DO NOT miss the 2 min video showcasing the Cathedral and grounds) – by Tyler Durden – – “The Russian Orthodox Church and armed forces unveiled the newly constructed ‘Cathedral of the Armed Forces’ some forty miles outside Moscow early this week. It is also formally called Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, and is now considered one of the tallest churches in Russia… It specifically features symbols which celebrate the Soviet fight against the Nazi invaders, which most estimates say resulted in 26 million total Russian troops and citizens killed… One journalist described that the new cathedral’s design and aesthetics are ‘like a glimpse of an alien civilization’. “

Egypt’s Sisi Visits Airbase Near Libyan Border, Threatens Intervention Backing Haftar – from – – “The Egyptian media published a video of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi inspecting the air force during a visit to the western military region… Sisi reportedly urged his air force to be fully prepared to implement any mission to protect Egypt, whether inside or outside the border, at a moment of threatened Egyptian military intervention inside Libya in favor or pro-Haftar forces… Sisi stressed that ‘the Egyptian army is ready to carry out any tasks here or anywhere if necessary.’.. ‘If the Libyan people moved through you and asked us to intervene, this would be a signal to the world that Egypt and Libya are one country, one interest,’ he added.”

Dear Junkies Addicted To Fed Smack: The Monkey On Your Back Is Now A Gorilla – by Charles Hugh Smith – – “Here’s how it ends, figuratively speaking: you’ll wake up inside your Mercedes in a god-forsaken patch of urban wreckage, all the doors will be locked and you won’t remember even leaving the party, much less how you got here… You’ll compulsively check your account and find that your margin call exceeds the value of your entire portfolio because the bottom dropped out while you were in a Fed-smack-induced haze, dreaming of prancing unicorns and angels dancing in the head of a pin… Only now will you understand you were not a trading genius who would get out at the top, no problem, but a bagholder, played perfectly by the big dealers who sold to you… In summary, The Fed can’t stop the unwinding of an unsustainable bubble of epic proportions. We are entering The Greatest Depression because Fed smack has zero effect on the real world; its only effect is to increase the delusion that asset bubbles are all that matters… Also recall that the Deep State is not going to allow Jay Powell to re-elect Donald Trump with a stock market rally. From the point of view of the inner circle of the Deep State, the market collapse in March was simply a test to confirm what happens when the free-money smack is withdrawn. The test was a success and now the real crash can begin. Only this time it won’t last three weeks. It will last all the way through October because, well, you know why: Deep State to Powell: Stop Goosing Stocks Higher Or You’ll Re-Elect Trump (June 9, 2020)”

Dr. Andrew Kaufman Responds To Reuters Fact Check on COVID-19 Vaccine Genetically Modifying Humans (48 min) – Interview by Spiro Skouras – Dr. Kaufman goes into a lot of detail on the questionable nature of the core of “Pandemic Science,” and basically demolishes the narrative around continuing suppression of peoples’ natural rights.

From the Blast-From-The-Past Desk: Bill Gates Unveils His Very Own Hitler Youth Movement – by Dave Hodges – – “Bill and Melinda Gates have initiated an offshoot of Agenda 21 programs known as Global Citizen Nights. Global citizen nights are designed to lure in children and have them engage in some kind of community service with regard to the globalist agenda (e.g. biking vs driving, water conservation, etc.). In exchange for their good deeds, the participating teens will earn points and then be able to exchange their “globalist points” for high valued items such as concert tickets. Personal servitude to society sends the message to the young that your life does not belong to you. Charity towards one’s own community should be borne out of a desire to help or heel in the name of some cause that has personal appeal to a young person. Mandatory compliance to these “volunteer programs” conditions the youth that their lives do not belong to them and that the state has the final authority of one’s actions.”

Prospects Of Ukrainian Army Offensive On Donetsk And Lugansk People’s Republic – by J.Hawk – – “The other factor making predictions difficult is the level of morale of these two forces that have been bogged down in an apparently endless war that is beyond their power to finish. The combination of trench warfare boredom and terror means it is debilitating to the units’ morale and proficiency if they are forced to remain in the trenches for too long. While the most offensive-capable forces are kept out of the trenches as mobile reserves, they too can only maintain their state of alert for so long before losing their edge… Paradoxically, this state of affairs give an advantage to the side that intends to go on the offensive, because the preparations for the attack and associated training would imbue the troops with the hope that, after the next big push, the war will finally be over. At the same time, both sides know such an offensive would be an exceedingly risky proposition, because if it fails, it will grind down the attacking side’s most effective units and render the army vulnerable to a counteroffensive to which it would not be able to respond… We have not seen any indications so far that Biden intends any moderation in the area of foreign policy or returning to a policy of cooperation with Russia. One should expect that, in the event of Biden victory, Ukraine will launch an offensive against the Donbass shortly after the inauguration, in other words, in February or March of 2020 (sic – 2021). This offensive would accomplish two objectives for Biden. One, it would establish his hawkish, “patriotic” bona fides, make him look “presidential” in the eyes of the mainstream media and the national security establishment. Secondly, it would allow the US to exert even more pressure on Germany and other EU member states concerning North Stream and other areas of cooperation with Russia.”

Italy Blows the Lid Off Vaccine Scam. Will No Longer Poison Citizens with Globalist Eugenics (9 min) – by Rachel Celler (The Forensic Nurse,

Is There a Relationship Between Influenza Vaccination & COVID-19 Mortality? – by Ted Kuntz – – “A randomized placebo-controlled trial in children showed that the influenza vaccine increased fivefold the risk of acute respiratory infections caused by a group of non-influenza viruses, including coronaviruses… A study of US military personnel confirms that those who received an influenza vaccine had an increased susceptibility to coronavirus infection. The study concluded ‘Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus.’.. European Union numbers show a correlation between influenza vaccine and coronavirus deaths. The countries with highest death rates (Belgium, Spain, Italy, UK, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland and USA) had all vaccinated at least half of their elderly population against influenza… In Canada, 82% of deaths attributed to COVID-19 occurred in long-term care settings.”

What Kind of “Popular Revolution” Is This?! – by The Saker – – “I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the US are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc. As for the violence, looting and riots – they are either excused as a result of some kind of righteous wrath or blamed on “infiltrators”. In my previous article I tried to show how the Democrats and the US media tried to instrumentalize these riots and to use them against Trump’s bid for reelection. I accompanied the article with a carefully staged photo-op of US Democrats “taking a knee” in solidarity (as if the leaders of the Democratic Party gave a hoot about Blacks or poor US Americans!)… What I did not mention was how the US (and even trans-national) corporate world backed these riots to the hilt. Here are just a few examples of this:…”

From Dodgy Dossiers to the Sacking of Whitlam: The British Empire Stands Exposed – by Matthew Ehret – – “I used to believe as many do, in a story called “the American Empire”. Over the last decade of research, that belief has changed a bit. The more I looked at the top down levers of world influence shaping past and present events that altered history, the hand of British Intelligence just kept slapping me squarely in the face at nearly every turn… Take the case of Africa as a quick example: Over 70% of the mineral control of African raw materials, mining, and refining are run by companies based in Britain or Commonwealth nations like Canada, South Africa or Australia managed by an international infrastructure of managers called “Crown Agents Ltd” (founded in 1833 as the administrative arm of the Empire and which still runs much of Africa’s health, and economic development policies to this day).”

Virginia Legislature Gives CDC, Board of Health Power to Mandate Vaccines for School Children – by Carolyn Hendler, JD and Barbara Loe Fisher – – “The final bill, passed by the Senate in March, granted Governor-appointed members of the Virginia Board of Health the authority to add federally recommended vaccines to the schedule required for school attendance with the exception of the annual influenza vaccination. The bill included an exemption from the requirements of Article 2 of the Administrative Process Act (§ 2.2-4006 et seq. of the Code of Virginia), effectively blocking Virginia citizens and elected legislators from participating in the decision-making process that creates new vaccine mandates for children… Under the U.S. Constitution, duly elected representatives in state legislatures have authority for making public health laws for state residents. In handing the power to make vaccine laws to unelected members of a federal advisory committee and state Board of Health, the Virginia legislature has abdicated responsibility and accountability to constituents by cutting out elected representatives and the voters who elected them from the vaccine law making process… After the committee Chairman announced that the total amount of time allocated for those speaking in opposition to the bill would be limited to 10 minutes, the majority of people waiting to testify in opposition to the bill were denied the opportunity to speak. Despite driving and waiting in long lines for hours, Virginia voters were shut out of the law-making process… Delegate Dawn Adams (D-68th District), a PhD nurse practitioner stated matter-of-factly: ‘And I understand that sometimes [with] this medical availability [of vaccinations] that we have to do the best job we have for the most people [and this] sometimes results in unintended consequences, and that is a tragedy and [an] across-the-board reality in medical care.’ There was an audible gasp in the room after Adam’s remark… Will an experimental coronavirus vaccine that was rushed to market be mandated for all Virginia school children after the CDC recommends it for every child?.. Because a law was passed in 2020 that allows state public health officials to automatically add every CDC recommended vaccine to the list of vaccines required for daycare and school entry—without public hearings or a vote by elected representatives in the legislature—it appears that the answer is ‘yes.’ ”

Connecting the Dots: Glyphosate and COVID-19 – by Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D. – – “I am a senior research scientist at MIT. I have devoted over 12 years to trying to understand the role of toxic chemicals in the deterioration of human health. I have been particularly focused on figuring out what has been driving the skyrocketing rates of autism in America and around the world. My research strongly suggests that glyphosate (the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup) is a primary cause of the autism epidemic in the United States. When the COVID-19 pandemic began its march across the world, I started to consider whether glyphosate might play a role… If there is indeed a connection between glyphosate and COVID-19, understanding why and how they’re connected could play a critical role in combating this pandemic… The United States has stood out as the country hit the hardest by COVID-19. We also consume more glyphosate per capita than any other country in the world. It will be a tragic irony if it turns out that our attempts to reduce carbon emissions through the use of extracts from glyphosate-exposed food crops and trees as a source of fuel in cars, trucks, buses, ships, airplanes—and as heating oil for buildings—turn out to be one of the primary causes of the COVID-19 epidemic… I cannot claim to have proven that glyphosate is causing the weakened immune system and lung damage that sets up a susceptibility to an acute response to COVID-19. Science is a process of inquiry and we must keep inquiring. However, the circumstantial evidence is compelling and more research is needed. I hope I will inspire scientific researchers who have the necessary skills to further explore this hypothesis.” Comment: This is one of the most important articles out there on the Covid-19 topic area.

Mind Virus-19 and the Government Killed 35,000 Americans and That’s a Conservative Estimate – “The response isn’t just worse than the disease, the response is the disease” – by Karl Dierenbach – -“In this landscape, though data is scant, it is reasonable to estimate ER visits in the U.S. have been cut in half. In the United States in 2017, according to the CDC, there were 99 million non-injury related ER visits. Accordingly, between March 22 and May 16 of this year, based on the 2017 numbers, we would expect about 15 million non-injury ER visits. Cut that in half and it indicates possibly more than 7.5 million people who would have sought non-injury emergency treatment at an ER have decided not to go… typically around 10% of ER visits result in hospital admissions, but the 10% is of visitors during normal times. Under normal circumstances, the period between March 22 and May 16 would have resulted in about 1.5 million non-injury ER-to-hospital admissions (10% of 15 million visits). If all of those visits were significantly delayed due to fear or “expert” advice, and the delays caused 2.5% fatalities (averaging the studies), we could possibly have suffered 37,500 delay-related deaths. I do not present this value as a standalone indicator; I present it to demonstrate the potential scale of the problem and as an alternative to the every-excess-death-must-be-coronavirus narrative. Of course, not everyone who visited an ER delayed, but of those who delayed, many likely delayed for far more than 12 hours. One could envision people waiting for days and the 2.5% mortality rate climbing along with lengthening delays.

‘Ninja Bomb’ Strike Eliminates Senior Horas Al-Din Commanders In Idlib City (Videos) – – “A suspected U.S. drone strike on Idlib’s city center has killed two senior commanders of al-Qaeda-affiliated Horas al-Din: Qassam al-Urduni and Bilal al-Sanani… The strike targeted the commanders’ SUV as it was passing on a road in the western part of Idlib city. The SUV, a silver Hyundai Santa Fe, was struck with what appears to be two U.S.-made AGM-114R9X Hellfire missile… Pro-militant sources revealed that Qassam al-Urduni was the general military commander of Horas al-Din. Bilal al-Sanani, on the other hand, was the commander of the group’s al-Badiya [desert] Army. Both terrorists were Jordanian citizens.The assassination of al-Urduni and al-Sanani is without a doubt a serious blow to Horas al-Din. However, this attack will not likely affect the terrorist group’s influence in Greater Idlib. Recently, the group and other al-Qaeda factions formed a new operations room in the northwestern Syrian region.”

US Claims To Have Captured Major Money Launderer Of ‘The Venezuelan Regime’ – “Western media are celebrating another supposed ‘victory’ against the Venezuelan government as a Colombian businessman indicted by U.S. authorities as the alleged chief money launder for ‘Nicolas Maduro’s regime in Venezuela’ has been detained in the African island archipelago of Cape Verde… Alex Saab was detained on June 12 as his San Marino-registered jet made a refuelling stop in Cape Verde on its way from Caracas to Iran… US ‘Justice Department’ spokeswoman Nicole Navas Oxman said on June 13 that Saab was arrested in Cape Verde on an Interpol red notice… The United States has no extradition treaty with Cape Verde and it was not immediately clear what would happen next… The US accusations should be treated with extreme caution, as they could be another effort to exact retribution on anyone involved in dealings with the Venezuelan or Iranian governments after their failure to prevent the fuel shipments in May, and as with other US actions they are consistent with the US Establishment’s determination to overthrow the Venezuelan government at any cost.

Facebook censorship strikes again, removing video pointing out flaws in Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine trials – by Isabelle Z. – – “Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is the latest victim of Facebook censorship. In an editorial he recently posted on the movement’s website, he recounted how Facebook removed an IGTV interview he did with The Autism File founder Polly Tommey just ten minutes after he posted it without offering him any explanation… Kennedy, Jr., said there were no inaccuracies in the video and that every statement he made is backed by peer-reviewed science. But the problem wasn’t that he was saying something untrue – the real issue is that he was talking about facts that are very inconvenient to the vaccine industry… In the interview, he said that past coronavirus vaccines have made people sicker and even caused some to die because of pathogenetic priming, which means these vaccines are actually priming people’s bodies to get even sicker. That’s why there has never been a successful vaccine for past coronaviruses, and the new one may well turn out to face the same issues.”

Seattle Police Chief Slams Democrat Mayor; Cops Unable to Respond to Rapes in CHAZ – by Jay Greenberg – – “The massive unrest prompted Mayor Durkan to order police to abandon the East Precinct building, yielding it to Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs… Protesters, however, say they plan on maintaining the “cop-free zone” for as long as their demands for reform, including abolishing police and law courts, are not met… As Neon Nettle previously reported, without a police presence, CHAZ has now started using heavily-armed leftist mobs to enforce its own “laws” that are being carried out without due process… The new laws appear to be enforced by armed thugs who are seemingly conducting deportations from the sealed-off zone without due process.”

For the Week of 6/8/20:

US President Donald Trump Authorizes Sanctions Against Members Of ICC – “The White House authorized economic sanctions against members of the International Criminal Court on Thursday 11 May over what officials say are politically motivated investigations into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan… International Criminal Court officials directly engaged in any effort to investigate or prosecute American military personnel will also be barred from entering the US, the White House press secretary said in a statement. President Donald Trump signed an executive order on the matter this week, calling the threat the international court poses to US personnel ‘a national emergency’… This blatant US threat against the family members of International Criminal Court prosecutors is part of a longer historical pattern of Washington attacking multilateral institutions… At the beginning of the George W. Bush administration’s so-called war on terror, in 2002, the US Congress passed a bill called the American Service-Members’ Protection Act — more commonly known as the “Hague Invasion Act.”.. This unprecedented piece of legislation declares that the US government unilaterally grants itself the right to militarily invade the Hague if a citizen of the United States or any allied country is prosecuted by the court.”

MORGAN STANLEY TOP ECONOMIST PREDICTS DOLLAR CRASH IN 2021. WILL AMERICA LEARN T-H-I-S LESSON? – by Ivan Danilov – – “According to him, when the initial global shock passes and the world realizes the state of the American economy, in 2021 the dollar will depreciate to 35% against a basket of currencies of countries in which the United States conduct international trade, and, apparently, this is far from the limit of a possible devaluation. Protectionism by the Donald Trump administration and the deterioration of the US international image (and Dr. Roach recalls that “international leadership” is an element supporting the dollar’s ​​status) will make the situation worse, ing the main problem unresolved: Americans really want to spend a lot (and the list of those wishing to spend a lot of money includes primarily the US government), but they have forgotten how to save money and basically do not want to re-learn how to do it. [Actually, it is not a matter of not wanting to learn. The US government is locked into the spending habit by politics. Lobbies, including the arms makers and the Israel lobby, in tandem with a culture of paranoia toward Russia and China (perpetually accused of “aggression”) among the grassroots, and Evangelicals adhering to the cult of Zionism, leave no alternative to government overspending.].. The warning from the former chief economist of Morgan Stanley, is particularly striking against the backdrop of news that the US Federal Reserve does not see a quick economic recovery after the coronavirus, and also expects dollar interest rates to be around zero for about two years.”

Sen. Rand Paul Introduces the ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ Act To End No-Knock Police Raids – by Rand Paul – – “The bill is named in memory and honor of Breonna Taylor, a Louisville resident and EMT who was killed during a police raid on her home in March 2020, which was conducted under the authority of a no-knock warrant… ‘After talking with Breonna Taylor’s family, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants. This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States,’ said Sen. Paul… Earlier this week, Senator Paul held a call with Breonna Taylor’s aunt, Bianca Austin, Game Changers Executive Director Christopher 2X, and others fighting for criminal justice reform, where he reiterated his long-standing commitment to ensuring a just and fair system that respects all Americans’ rights, including the need to end no-knock warrants.”

Downtown Seattle now run by an actual WARLORD who is accused of beating women and forcing them into sex acts – by Mike Adams – – “… clueless Democrats celebrate warlord rule as new UTOPIAAfter left-wing terrorists seized six city blocks of downtown Seattle, declaring it an “autonomous zone” that defies all the laws of Washington State and the United States of America, the power vacuum didn’t last very long. Now, an actual warlord has risen to power there — since Democrats hate police, remember? — and according to online comments, he’s, ‘a man who beats women, forces them into sex work and punishes them if they do not obey.’.. As BigLeaguePolitics reports: ‘A Seattle rap artist appears to be establishing his authority as the de facto “warlord” of a self-styled leftist state in the city’s downtown. Reports from the scene of the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone indicate that Raz Simone, a Seattle rapper, has increasingly staked himself out as something of an authority figure within the jurisdiction. Witnesses describe Simone as asserting his authority over graffiti artists that attempted to paint over existing graffiti, threatening to shoot the street artists if they failed to obey his commands regarding new graffiti.’ “

United States Sanctions International Criminal Court Officials – “The U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday authorized new economic sanctions and visa restrictions against the International Criminal Court (ICC) officials who are investigating the behavior of U.S. troops… ‘The International Criminal Court’s actions are an attack on the rights of the U.S. people and threaten to infringe upon our national sovereignty,’ White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said through a statement… Through an executive order, Trump also declared a “national emergency” to address the supposed threat this international organization represents against his country.”

Berlin Reportedly Fears New US Sanctions on Nord Stream 2 Could Target German State – “Last week, the chairman of the Bundestag’s committee on energy warned that Berlin could retaliate to new sanctions legislation presently being proposed in Washington by slapping import duties on US gas… Germany’s Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is concerned that new US sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project may affect not only German and European companies, but federal agencies as well, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported on Friday, citing an internal ministry document… Last week, Bundestag committee on energy matters chairman Klaus Ernst warned that Berlin would not sit idly by if Washington moved forward with the new sanctions measures, but consider “serious measures to protect ourselves,” including new duties on US gas imports. According to the Left Party (Die Linke) lawmaker, US behaviour related to Nord Stream 2 could be characterized as an encroachment on German and European sovereignty.”

Country Formerly Known as Spain Decides to Institute a Permanent COVID Dystopia, Flog Itself to Death – Adiós España – from – So, masks are obligatory in all closed spaces (work, office, schools, transport, shops, etc… even at home when you receive friends/family who are not living with you in the same household – LOL), in cars when there is more than one person inside, and also outside on the streets and parks etc when one cannot maintain at all times a distance of at least 1.5 meters from other people. So, those living in rural areas or in small villages can, I suppose, go out without a mask. Tough luck in the crowded cities. The fine is 100 euro for not wearing a mask… And now the best: these rules are in vigor UNTIL THERE IS A VACCINE. So, masks (and “social distancing”) forever in Spain… On top of this, all transport companies offering transport between cities and provinces (i.e. buses, trains, planes, ships, etc) will have to get the name and contact of the passengers and give the records to the government when requested. So, it will be impossible to even travel between various parts of the country without the govt knowing exactly where you went, how long, etc. We were infinitely more free in communism in Central Europe than this!”

Hungary bans legal recognition of its transgender citizens – from AP – – “Hungarian lawmakers on Tuesday approved legislation banning the legal recognition of transgender citizens… Amendments to the law on the birth, death and marriage registry, approved mostly by deputies from Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party, will prevent transgender or intersex people from legally changing their gender to match their gender identity… The bill changes the “sex” category in official documents like birth certificates to “sex at birth,” defined as the “biological sex determined by primary sex characteristics and chromosomes.” Once determined, the birth sex category can’t be changed.”

St. Petersburg University Scientists Create New Assembler For Viral Genome Deciphering – by Arthur Evans – – “It should also be noted that assembling a metagenome from 1,000 genomes is way more difficult than lumping together a single genome sequence. Here you have to deal with 1,000 individual puzzles instead of one: you need to put together a “picture,” whose fragments are mixed with billions of pieces from other puzzles. To solve this problem, three years ago, the same Russian-US team of scientists who created SPAdes, developed the metaSPAdes assembler, which, in turn, became the leading metagenomic assembler. It made the extraction of viral sequences from a huge amount of data much easier, but the metaviralSPAdesassembler of the new generation is able not only to locate fragments of viral genomes, but also to assemble them into a ready-made “puzzle” – the pathogen genome.”

The Sun Never Sets: Why Modi’s Green BRI Doppelganger Is Doomed to Fail – by Matthew Ehret – – “A recent case of the latter slavish behaviour can be seen with Modi’s renewed call to counter the spread of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) with a strange doppelganger known as the One Sun, One World, One Grid Plan (OSOWOG). This three-phased global plan was first announced in 2018 and promises to transition the world into a single international green energy grid by 2050 in order to meet the COP-21 demands for mass carbon dioxide reduction. Part of the plan also involves creating a ‘World Solar Bank’ to offset the China-dominated Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank and New Development Bank… The OSOWOG Plan targets a vast region encapsulating two broad zones which basically receive lots of sun light: 1) the Far East of Asia and Middle East and 2) North Africa. In essence, the plan calls for spreading green energy infrastructure across these sun-soaked regions and a generating a new integrated green grid as a way to counterbalance China’s BRI.”

As COVID Vaccines Head into Phase 3 Trials Big Pharma Prepares for Increase in Flu Vaccines for Fall – by Brian Shilhavy – – “All three of the shots are based on brand-new technologies, and they’re all reportedly among finalists in the Operation Warp Speed program. Former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has publicly questioned the picks, pointing out the team’s reliance on new technologies… The government-funded phase 3 studies will enroll about 30,000 people each, testing the vaccines against placebo in places where the virus is circulating, WSJ reports. The aim is to see whether the candidates can protect vaccinated individuals against infection…Aside from the NIH plans, Pfizer could start a phase 3 trial as early as next month, a source told the WSJ. Down the road, the NIH could launch studies of other vaccines, John Mascola, the head of NIAID’s vaccine research center, told the publication. Anthony Fauci, head of the NIAID, said at BIO’s digital conference Tuesday he expects “more than one” vaccine to succeed.’ (Source.).. Given the recent bad publicity Moderna received from the small sample size tested so far (see: COVID Experimental Vaccine Victim Claims “Sickest in His Life” after Being Injected with Experimental Vaccine), one has to wonder if the drug companies will be transparent in releasing the results of these trials, both negative and any positive outcomes… Given the fact that the U.S. taxpayers are picking up the tab on these trials, the companies have a legal and moral obligation to be transparent in the results of these trials.”

Failed State Walking – by Chris Hamilton – – “I love America. It’s the land of my birth, my education (Go Beav’s), my children’s births, and where I live and will eventually die. I did spend about five years living in Europe and Asia and loved it…but my home is and will be the vast expanse of the Western US… So, when I’m critical of the US, it’s not because I want it to fail or fall into chaos…quite the opposite. I believe that a patriot and citizens role is to critically analyze and constructively push forward. And this means critiquing the direction of its politics, economy, society, and the state of its soul… So, when I show the following charts…it is in the spirit of constructively questioning what we are doing…and where this is leading us? What present and imminent future are we fostering for our children and young adults?”

The Fed’s Monetary “Animal House” – by Michael Leboqitz and Jack Scott – – “Their economic euphemisms and overly optimistic expectations remind us of a Dylan Grice quote “Linguistic precision yields cognitive precision.” Or, put a little differently, linguistic imprecision yields stupidity… In this piece we explore monetary policy and the role it plays in economic growth… Strong Economic Footing: ‘We entered this turbulent period on a strong economic footing, and that should help support the recovery. In the meantime, we are using our tools to help build a bridge from the solid economic foundation on which we entered this crisis to a position of regained economic strength on the other side.’ –Jerome Powell 4/9/2020… To paraphrase Bluto, ‘eleven years of economic recovery down the drain.’ ”

Big Pharma “Criminal” Influence On Research Exposed In Secret Recording Of Lancet And NEJM Editors-In-Chief – by Tyler Durden – – “A secretly recorded meeting between the editors-in-chief of The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine reveal both men bemoaning the “criminal” influence big pharma has on scientific research… According to Philippe Douste-Blazy, France’s former Health Minister and 2017 candidate for WHO Director, the leaked 2020 Chattam House closed-door discussion between the EIC’s – whose publications both retracted papers favorable to big pharma over fraudulent data… ‘Now we are not going to be able to, basically, if this continues, publish any more clinical research data because the pharmaceutical companies are so financially powerful today, and are able to use such methodologies, as to have us accept papers which are apparently methodologically perfect, but which, in reality, manage to conclude what they want them to conclude,’ said Lancet EIC Richard Horton… According to Douste-Blazy, the the EICs said the influence wielded by big Pharma to influence publications is “criminal.”

Gold Gains As Fed QE Commitment Crashes Dollar – by Tyler Durden – – In what seems to amount to implicit debt monetization, The Fed’s commitment to buying $80 billion a month of Treasuries appears to have awakened some further anxiety over the future of fiat… Gold is surging, the dollar is down…”

AOC Caught Fundraising For A Radical Group Associated With Antifa – by Adam Morgan – – “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been caught openly fundraising for a radical group affiliated with Antifa. The group, Unicorn Riot, is a “citizen journalist” group that broadcast Antifa riots and protests… In an Instagram Post, AOC endorsed donating to Black Lives Matter, Black Trans Travel Fund, Femme Empowerment Project, Committee to Protect Journalists, Know Your Rights Camp, COVID Bailout NYC, The Innocence Project, and Unicorn Riot… Unicorn Riot has been seen participating in large protests (some turned into riots) in many cities across the country. The group seems to always be placed close to those in the higher ranks of Antifa and anti-government protesters who want to defund the police.”

Trump Calls Out Veteran Antifa Agitator, Got Cops Arrested With Alleged Stunt – by Alex Stevens – – “Martin Gugino, 75, is a veteran Antifa member with a long history of arrests, and he also posts “f*ck the police” on social media. He was allegedly caught attempting to “scan” police communication devices when a Buffalo officer pushed him away and he fell. Over 57 Buffalo police officers have resigned from the emergency response team in protest after two officers were arrested. Now, more details have come to light, and that’s when the president called out the Antifa member. You don’t want to miss this.”

Black Lives Matter Demands Boston Spends $15M Taxpayer Money on Illegal Aliens – by Jay Greenberg – – “Massachusetts chapter of the far-left group, BLM Boston, is pressing city officials to hand over $15 million in American tax dollars for people who live in the country illegally… The group is calling for the money to be spent on rolling out the red carpet for illegal aliens by providing them with summer jobs… BLM posted a list of demands for police money to be diverted to… Every year, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are added to the U.S. population in addition to about 1.2 million legal immigrants who permanently resettle in the country and another more than one million foreign visa workers who arrive to take American jobs, according to Breitbart… The results have stifled upward mobility in wages and employment for, specifically, black Americans.”

Biothreat from the US on the Rise – by Vladimir Platov – – “The United States has been increasing its sphere of influence in the bio defense sector by, first and foremost, expanding its network of partner biolabs and conducting more experiments of interest to the Pentagon. As a result, the aforementioned countries are losing their ability to function independently in this particular field. Fulfilling its objectives could allow the United States to subsequently use these biolabs for military purposes; to ensure US servicemen are protected if they are deployed in the regions where the laboratories are located, and to conduct in-depth research into pathogens that can affect ethnic groups in different ways… Recently, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated that Washington’s rejection of the protocol containing verification measures to strengthen the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction was a cause for concern. “Tensions around the issue have escalated and Washington’s unwillingness to ensure the transparency of its military biological activities in various parts of the world raises questions about what is really going on there and what the actual goals are,” the official pointed out.

Democrats’ Calls to Defund the Police Are a Losing Bet at the Polls – by Charles Fain Lehman – – “While the proposal is popular among the party’s progressive activist wing and on Twitter, it faces a hard wall of resistance among the wider public. A recent YouGov poll showed that fewer than 20 percent of Americans of all parties supported any cutting of police funding—a finding consistent with decades of polling… Police defunding or abolition has long been a key idea of the radical left, with advocates arguing that the use of state force should be replaced with more equitable redistribution and investment, to target “root causes” of crime rather than responding to it after the fact. That view appears to have risen to the upper echelons of the Democratic power structure—without, however, growing notably more popular among voters… National leadership, meanwhile, has sought to either distance itself from defunding—as in the case of presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden—or define the idea away as simply shuffling funding, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) did Monday. Those moves reflect a lack of consensus between leadership and the base, and within the progressive activist coalition itself, as to what defunding actually entails.”

AG Barr Checkmates Rep. Ilhan Omar: “If You Pull Back Police From These Communities There’ll Be Much More Harm Done” – by Erin Flockhart“The police chiefs, the rank-and-file officers understand the need for change and there has been great change,” AG Barr stated in the interview with Bret Baier… ‘I think defunding the police, holding the entire police structure responsible for the actions of certain officers is wrong and I think it is dangerous to demonize the police,’ he continued… There is no question it is an issue, and it has to be dealt with, but in terms of sheer numbers, is it these police officers who are oppressing African American communities?’ AG Bill Barr said on Monday… ‘There are a lot more damage, a lot more killing, a lot more fear engendered on the streets from criminal elements… In Chicago, for example, in one weekend, 60 to 70 people shot… If you pull back the police from these communities there will be more harm done in these communities,’ Barr added.”

In a Nutshell: UK Government allies with psychopharmacy front groups – by Steve Cook – – “Aided and abetted by accomplices in the media and political establishment, the current creation of widespread unwarranted terror over the Coronavirus, media hysteria and the demoralisation of healthy, productive people has all the hallmarks of a psychological warfare operation straight out of the Tavistock psychological warfare playbook… hen pushed by psychiatric front groups such as WHO and WFMH, “mental health concerns” lead inexorably to more drugging of children and adults “for their own good”… The scares about an epidemic makes billions for the psychopharmacy through the sale of vaccines… The health problems caused by improperly tested vaccines booby-trapped with toxins such as aluminium, mercury and formaldehyde and the need to treat these problems with more drugs and medications make further billions for the psychopharmacy… “Sick and cowed” is the ideal condition for the human race in so far as this suits the money-making and/or totalitarian goals of the psychopharmacy… Boris Johnson at the recent GAVI summit committed UK citizens’ taxpayer millions to funding GAVI, in addition to the taxpayer billions already donated to WHO… Boris Johnson has thus declared himself an ally of or proxy for these psychiatric front groups.”

US Reportedly Seeks to Sanction Up to 50 Tankers Over Iran-Venezuela Oil Trade – “The US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) wants to add up to 50 tankers to its blacklist for cooperation with Venezuela’s President Nicholas Maduro, the report said, citing a source familiar with the matter… Last week, the United States imposed Venezuela-related sanctions against four entities and four oil tanker sailing under the flags of Panama, Bahamas and the Marshall Islands… Five Iranian tankers have shipped oil to Venezuela in recent weeks, but these deliveries were only a diplomatic gesture, the report said… The additional sanctioning of tankers will mark a dramatic expansion of the United States’ effort to interrupt trade between Iran and Venezuela, the report added… US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook recently said that the United States de-flagged some 150 Iranian tankers and promised to continue doing so in the future.”

“Plague Of Corruption” – What Happened To Judy Mikovits Was Just Part of A Pattern… – But The World Is Waking Up To The Scam… – by Tim Bolen – – “Our DHHS approved US Billing Coding System SIGNIFICANTLY raises health care costs… There are five million (5,000,000) legitimately operating health professionals in the United States. Over two dozen categories of US health professions, representing over two million of that five million, are allowed by law, to bill directly for their services… But the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has only authorized billing codes used for Medicare, Medicaid, and the health insurance industry, that are developed by, and for, MDs – and NO OTHERS… Worse, the majority of these MD codes represent THE MOST EXPENSIVE, DANGEROUS, and INVASIVE procedures available which are also, frequently, THE LEAST EFFECTIVE… There are NO CODES, or inadequate billing codes, to process healthcare claims provided by the over four million health professionals who aren’t practicing conventional (Big Pharma) MD medicine.”

British Petroleum Reportedly Set to Cut 10,000 Jobs Amid COVID-19 Fallout – “The multinational oil and gas company BP (British Petroleum), headquartered in London, is planning to cut about 15% of its workforce in response to the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, sources in the company told Reuters… According to the report, Chief Executive Bernard Looney told employees in an online call that the company will cut 10,000 of its 70,100 jobs, most of them by the end of this year… The plan is reportedly part of Looney’s effort to shift the oil and gas giant to renewable energy… The company hasn’t yet commented on the matter… The report comes after the company announced in April a 25% reduction in 2020 spending as the coronavirus outbreak brought an unprecedented drop in demand for oil.” (emphasis added)

The “Corona Hoax”, The Proliferation of Racial Riots. Towards a Military Lockdown? – by Peter Koenig – – “The “leak“– this time from the German Ministry of the Interior – shows a “secret” 93-page document, admitting basically how badly Germany reacted to the corona hoax – no, the paper doesn’t call it a ”hoax”, but you can taste it between the lines. In essence it says the economic and social collateral damage is much, but much larger than the impact of COVID-19… Back to the German Interior Minister, Mr. Horst Seehofer. His study team of experts finds that the Covid disease was of lesser importance than for example the flu of the 2017 / 2018 season. The study also looked at death statistics and found that the overall death rate in Germany from all causes is comparable to that of previous years and lower than that of the last big flu 2017/2018 season, which went virtually unnoticed. There are no extra deaths, as the German statistics and covid-accounting would indicate with the official 8,522 death toll as of 2 June 2020.This would be a significant spike as compared to previous years – which however, isn’t reflected in the statistics… In essence the study concluded – politely – Covid-19 was a huge False Alarm. When the Minister’s spokesperson was confronted by journalists about the leaked paper, he said something to the effect – we are not discussing anything with conspiracy theorists. Total denial. – Why?.. The team of scientists that elaborated the report for the Interior Ministry (Bundesministerium des Innern – BMI), was flabbergasted, when the Ministry distanced itself from their report. The research team issued a Press Release, triggered by the leaked document – even though it, the BMI, signed off on the scientists’ report. See this (from RT Deutsch [Germany], in German).” (emphases added)

From the Maintaining-The-Narrative Desk: Exclusive investigation on the coronavirus pandemic: Where was Congress? – by Bob Cusack and Rachel Bucchino – – “In the next four-and-half months, more than 110,000 people in the United States would lose their lives to the virus, and the economy would be closed down — shutting businesses and forcing millions into unemployment. The pandemic, not impeachment, is certain to be the fundamental issue to voters as they go to the polls this fall… This historic crisis has led to intense scrutiny of the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic focused on the executive branch’s sluggish realization of how severely the global pandemic would hit the country… The Hill has examined hundreds of statements and hours of congressional testimony to highlight which legislators were the first to raise red flags that the coronavirus presented an imminent danger to the United States.” – Comment: So glad real journalists are on the case…

From the State-Propaganda-Beat-Continues Desk: Shutdowns prevented 60 million coronavirus infections in the U.S., study finds – by Joel Achenbach – – “A separate study from epidemiologists at Imperial College London estimated the shutdowns saved about 3.1 million lives in 11 European countries, including 500,000 in the United Kingdom, and dropped infection rates by an average of 82 percent, sufficient to drive the contagion well below epidemic levels… The two reports, published Monday in the journal Nature, provide fresh evidence that aggressive and unprecedented shutdowns, which caused massive economic disruptions and job losses, were necessary to halt the exponential spread of the novel coronavirus.” – Comment: Sure hope this was “peer-reviewed”…

For the Week of 6/1/20:

A Conspiracy Theorist Confesses – by Iain Davis – – “Obviously conspirators would like to keep their plans hidden. But that doesn’t mean they always remain so. If all conspiracies were “secrets” nobody would ever discover any of them… Known conspiracies, such as Operation Gladio, Iran Contra, the Lavon Affair, the 2001 anthrax letter hoax and so on, would not have been exposed had people not highlighted the evidence which proved their existence… The notion of the “secret conspiracy” is not one most people called conspiracy theorists would recognise. Often the whole point of our argument is that the conspiracies can be quite plainly evidenced. Most of that evidence is in the public domain and freely available… More often conspiracy theorists are concerned with the denial or obfuscation of the evidence. It is not that the evidence doesn’t exist, rather that it either isn’t reported at all or is hidden by labelling those who do report it conspiracy theorists… We can define “conspiracy theory” simply to mean: the reporting of evidence indicating a plan between two or more people to commit an illegal or nefarious act.”

Guaido seeking refuge at French embassy in Caracas: Venezuela FM – “Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza broke the news during a local radio interview on Thursday, when he was asked by a journalist about Guaido’s supposed presence at the French embassy and another leading opposition figure, Leopoldo Lopez, at the Spanish ambassador’s residence, where he has remained for more than a year following attempts to incite a military uprising against the government in Caracas… Arreaza’s comments were made three days after Maduro had hinted that the opposition figure was “hiding” at a diplomatic mission… Maduro and his administration in Caracas have previously called Guaido, who was behind an abortive coup against the Venezuelan leader in 2019, a ‘fugitive from justice.’ ”

DOD announces 5G military test sites – by Mark Rockwell – – “The DOD said it chose the five bases because they can provide streamline access to a variety of technologies and facilities vital to 5G, including local spectrum bands, mature fiber optic cable and wireless infrastructure, and the ability to conduct controlled experiments with shared spectrum capabilities… ‘One of the things we want to do is not just go in there and do experimentation and pull it out but to actually leave a capability behind that the bases can continue to use from the 5G standpoint,” Deasy said… On Oct. 23, DOD teed up plans for an initial round of solicitations for 5G experiments to a dynamic spectrum sharing testbed for congested environments; another for an integrated augmented/virtual reality mission and training application; and another for a smart warehouse application with maximized logistics capabilities.”

From the WTF Desk: DoD Establishes Collaborative Virus Genetic Sequencing Capability for COVID-19 – by Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch – – “As the pandemic continues to unfold, genetic sequence data for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), has played a critical role in the public health response, including in the design of diagnostics and vaccines. Within the Department of Defense, SARS-CoV-2 genetic sequence data plays a vital role in force health protection efforts… To jumpstart the DoD’s SARS-CoV-2 sequencing efforts, Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch’s Global Emerging Infections Surveillance (GEIS) section used its existing partnerships with Army, Navy, and Air Force public health and medical research laboratories. This connection helped to establish a collaborative approach to the sequencing capabilities. Sequence data from this collaboration will provide critical information about transmission patterns, track diagnostic effectiveness, and guide the development and evaluation of medical countermeasures for the 1.4 million active duty and 331,000 reserve personnel… ‘GEIS-funded surveillance provides near-real time understanding of how the SARS-CoV-2 virus is evolving. This information is critical for the development of a vaccine and treatment,’ stated Navy Capt. Guillermo Pimentel, GEIS chief… ‘Previous investments by GEIS in this technology have given our partners the capability to respond and sequence SARS-CoV-2 genomes isolated from DoD Service members around the world.’ ”

DOD Names Seven Installations as Sites for Second Round of 5G Technology Testing, Experimentation – The Department of Defense has named seven U.S. military installations as the latest sites where it will conduct fifth-generation (5G) communications technology experimentation and testing. They are Naval Base Norfolk, Virginia; Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; Joint Base San Antonio, Texas; the National Training Center (NTC) at Fort Irwin, California; Fort Hood, Texas; Camp Pendleton, California; and Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma… This second round, referred to as Tranche 2, brings the total number of installations selected to host 5G testing to 12. This tranche builds on DOD’s previously-announced 5G communications technology prototyping and experimentation and is part of a 5G development roadmap guided by the Department of Defense 5G Strategy… 5G technology is vital to maintaining America’s military and economic advantages.”

STAGED CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: An International Criminal Conspiracy of Epic Proportions – by The Millenium Report – – “SPECIAL NOTE: It’s of vital importance for every bioweapon expert, medical researcher, bioengineering scientist and investigative journalist to comprehend the true complexity of this global depopulation scheme and major move toward global governance. That’s why the following extensive report is a very long read indeed, which will get even longer with each successive update. The Wuhan coronavirus pandemic is actually an immense and convoluted series of black operations that are taking place on several levels each with multiple layers, in different dimensions and on every continent. This is not 5D chess, it’s 12D chess; and it’s been planned for many decades for this very moment in time. Only with this correct understanding will folks come to apprehend how various furtive operations, which appear to be working at cross purposes, are really overseen by the same plotters. Some of the most weighty explanations articulated below may even seem to be mutually exclusive—they are not. Some of the most radioactive info/data is only now being emailed to us as it will continue to be for the foreseeable future; after all, the more time that goes by, the more the hard truths will surface. Therefore, it’s the “Updates” posted at the bottom of this page that will contain the most current and sensitive intelligence. The final point here is that “staged” does NOT mean this is a hoax; only that many pieces of this op are choreographed and carried out to have maximum effect on the targeted populations.” – Comment: A very important info-resource on the current “crisis.”

Never Mind Expert Opposition and Warnings: FCC Announces 5G Upgrade Order on June 9 Agenda – by B.N. Frank – – “The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom industry. They have a long history as a corrupt agency and have become much more dangerous and powerful since Trump was elected. Their unrelenting quest seems to be to saturate the country with 5G and WiFi regardless of the warnings or consequences.. Regardless, the agency is hell bent on speeding up deployment during the pandemic. This includes approving tens of thousands of satellites to blast 5G and WiFi at us from space. Lawsuits have been filed against the agency for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G. Nevertheless, on June 9 the FCC will vote on how to further squash opposition in order to install more of this horrible technology.”

The U.S. Economy Is Down By 50% – Where Are the Job Programs It Needs? – by Moon Of Aalabama – – /55179.htm – “With the lockdowns loosening the GDP will certainly increase again. But a haircut missed due to the lockdown will not result in a desire to get two haircuts. The meals not eaten in a restaurant during the last two month will not be made up by additional meals eaten after the reopening. The losses are for real… With the end of the lockdown half of the 40 million currently unemployed will likely soon be back to work. The jobs of the other 20 million will not come back for a long time. The travel and hospitality sectors will be most effected. People who do not make money can not spend any… The unemployed and the economy will not be impressed by Trump’s current fake ‘law and order’ show or by his pandering to Evangelicals… If Trump is as smart as he claims to be he will ask Congress for a huge amount of money to be spent on infrastructure programs over the next three years. That money should be shared for projects on the national, state and local level. There are plenty of bridges, roads and rails that need repairs or replacements.”

DoJ Launches Investigation As More Evidence Emerges That Someone Is Orchestrating The Violent Riots – by Michael Snyder – – “This isn’t just a few angry protesters smashing a few windows… This is organized crime at a very high level, and these people know exactly what they are doing… Meanwhile, more evidence of coordination continues to emerge in other major cities as well… In Tampa, there were reports that members of the bomb team found mortars in bushes downtown, and bricks and other items were hidden in trash cans to throw at police officers… In Seattle, a video out up online by an anarchist shows that around midnight, a crowd of 100-150 nearly all-white agitators with umbrellas started throwing bottles at police… And for several more examples of this sort of orchestration, please see the article that I posted a couple of days ago… It appears to be obvious that some sort of coordination is taking place, but now federal authorities are faced with the daunting task of trying to prove who is behind it.”

From the Thank-Hashem-For-Israel Desk: Israel aiming to enable unprecedented human DNA edits, to help cure illnesses – Genome editing is promising but imprecise, so Israel is setting up a consortium to make technology more exact; hopes to pave the way for pinpointed tweaks to human DNA – by Nathan Jeffay – – “The state-run Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) has allocated NIS 36 million ($10 million) for the country’s academic institutions and several companies to advance CRISPR, a technology for making edits to the genome… The consortium, which will work on genome editing for humans, as well as agriculture and fish, will run for 18 months, after which funding may be renewed.”

From the Oops Desk: CDC’s failed coronavirus tests were tainted with coronavirus, feds confirm – by Beth Mole – – “The contamination made the tests uninterpretable, and—because testing is crucial for containment efforts—it lost the country invaluable time to get ahead of the advancing pandemic… The CDC had been vague about what went wrong with the tests, initially only saying that “a problem in the manufacturing of one of the reagents” had led to the failure. Subsequent reporting suggested that the problem was with a negative control—that is, a part of the test meant to be free of any trace of the coronavirus as a critical reference for confirming that the test was working properly overall… Now, according to investigation results reported by The New York Times, federal officials confirm that sloppy laboratory practices at two of three CDC labs involved in the tests’ creation led to contamination of the tests and their uninterpretable results… ‘Just tragic’ ”

From the Alice-In-Wonderland Desk: Unemployment rate drops to 13 percent, as the economy picked up jobs as states reopened – by Eli Rosenberg – – “Yet the 30 million workers who are still collecting unemployment benefits show how significantly the labor market has been upended. The unemployment rate remains the worst since World War II… ‘The idea you would see job gains and the unemployment rate falling was not something really that people were expecting,’ said Jay Shambaugh (you can’t make this stuff up), an economist at the Brookings Institution.” (emphasis added)

Bill Gates hits out at anti-vaxxers over coronavirus misinformation – “Speaking to Radio 4’s Today programme ahead of his talk at the Gavi Global Vaccine Summit 2020 in London today, Gates indicated his frustration at those opposed to a vaccine… ‘It is troubling that in times like that, and accelerated by digital tools, there is so much craziness,’ he said. ‘Eventually when we have the vaccine, we will want to develop the herd immunity to have over 80% of the population taken. If they have heard that it is a plot, or vaccines in general are bad, and we don’t have people willing to take the vaccine, then that will let the disease continue to kill people. So it is a bit worrying that there is some of that crazy stuff… We are just giving money away to get there to be a tool – we just write cheques to pharma companies (and) we happen to have a lot of the smart pharmaceutical expertise in our foundation, and are considered a fair broker between governments and the companies to help pick the best approach.’ ”

Dangerous nano-particles contaminating many vaccines: groundbreaking study – by Jon Rappoport – – ” “The Lung,” Second Edition, 2014: ‘Nanoparticles [are] comparable in size to subcellular structures…enabling their ready incorporation into biological systems.’.. A 2017 study of 44 types of 15 traditional vaccines, manufactured by leading global companies, has uncovered a very troubling and previously unreported fact: The vaccines are heavily contaminated with a variety of nanoparticles… Many of the particles are metals… We’re talking about traditional vaccines, such as HPV, flu, Swine Flu, Hepatitis B, MMR, DPT, tetanus, etc… To begin to understand some of the destructive effects of contaminating nanoparticles in vaccines, here is the groundbreaking 2017 study:”

MAJOR: UK Doctors Condemn Secrecy Over False COVID-19 Tests – by Drago Bosnic – – “Leading doctors condemned ministers and Public Health England (PHE) for throwing a “shroud of secrecy” over how many coronavirus tests on NHS staff and patients produce wrong results. The Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association (HCSA) has demanded an end to evasion and the wall of silence around how many swab tests result in false-negative readings, The Guardian reported… Swab tests are known to be unreliable… Doctors and hospital bosses told The Guardian that about 25% of those carried out during the pandemic wrongly said that a carrier was not infected. Medical research has found that as many as 29% yield a false negative. The HCSA, which represents thousands of frontline medics, is worried that staff wrongly declared to be virus-free after being tested could lead to patients becoming infected while in hospital.”

Pfizer, Merck, AZ, J&J and Moderna selected as ‘Warp Speed’ finalists for COVID Vaccine – by Brian Shilhavy – – “Operation Warp Speed is headed by General Gustave Perna, and Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the former chairman of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines division. Dr. Slaoui has strong ties to Dr. Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, and Big Tech, particularly Google… President Trump has previously stated that the U.S. Military would help deploy over 300 million doses of a Coronavirus vaccine later this year… FiercePharma has reported that the Trump Administration narrowed down the finalists among the pharmaceutical companies competing to develop the Coronavirus vaccine to: AstraZeneca, Merck, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna… ‘The Trump administration has selected its COVID-19 vaccine finalists for Operation Warp Speed, which aims to deliver safe and effective coronavirus vaccines to Americans by the end of the year,’ The New York Times reports… The finalists—from AstraZeneca, Merck, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna—have a clear Big Pharma slant, with biotechs like Inovio and Novavax being left off the list. Moderna is the smallest company among the group, but the biotech is pressing ahead into mid- and late-stage testing with its mRNA candidate at a record pace… The vaccine programs selected will get access to additional government funding, clinical trial assistance and manufacturing help, the Times reports, citing senior administration officials.”

Global Elites Announce ‘Great Reset’ Plan—And It’s Even More Radical Than the Green New Deal – by Justin Haskins – – “Sharan Burrow, the general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), said we need to use the present crisis to help “rebalance” the global economy… ‘We need to design policies to align with investment in people and the environment,” Burrow said. “But above all, the longer-term perspective is about rebalancing economies.’.. Burrow later added, ‘We want an end to the profit-at-all-costs mentality, because if we don’t build an economic future within a sustainable framework in which we are respectful of our planetary boundaries, and the need to change our energy and technology systems, then we will not have a living planet for human beings.’.. Echoing these points, Antonio Guterres, the U.N. secretary-general, called for building ‘equal, inclusive, sustainable societies, that are more resilient in the face of pandemics and climate change.’.. Other speakers at the virtual forum calling for a “Great Reset” included Ma Jun, the chairman of the Green Finance Committee at the China Society for Finance and Banking and a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China; Bernard Looney, CEO of BP; Ajay Banga, CEO of Mastercard; Bradford Smith, president of Microsoft; and Gina Gopinath, the chief economist at the International Monetary Fund… The WEF virtual event announced the launch of the “Great Reset” of the world economy, but more specific policy proposals will likely be deliberated at WEF’s meeting in Davos in January 2021, the theme of which will also be ‘The Great Reset.’ ”

Now is the time for a ‘great reset’ – by Klaus Schwab, for the Global Economic Forum – – “● We can emerge from this crisis a better world, if we act quickly and jointly, writes Professor Klaus Schwab. ● The changes we have already seen in response to COVID-19 prove that a reset of our economic and social foundations is possible. ● This is our best chance to instigate stakeholder capitalism – and here’s how it can be achieved…. COVID-19 lockdowns may be gradually easing, but anxiety about the world’s social and economic prospects is only intensifying. There is good reason to worry: a sharp economic downturn has already begun, and we could be facing the worst depression since the 1930s. But, while this outcome is likely, it is not unavoidable… To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism.”

CROSSING THE DIVIDE – from The Highwire with Del Bigtree (2hr 19min) – Del digs into the U.S. racial divide, the pandemic news, and Dr. Rashid Buttar’s Advanced Medicine Conference.

US Embassy In Athens Comes Under Firebomb Attack Amid Greek BLM Protests – by Tyler Durden – – “Though like other large European cities, Athens has been prone to youth rioting at the drop of a hat of the past years, it was clear the unrest was in direct spillover of events in US streets… Demonstrators which surrounded the fortified embassy, further secured with large Greek police buses, held signs with “Black lives matter” and “I can’t breathe” slogans, Reuters reports… Dramatic footage showed Greek demonstrators charging through police lines in a clearly coordinated effort and then hurling the petrol bombs.” – Comment: There are reports that the demonstrations were organized by Antifa, who receive direct funding from the EU.

California Faces “Financial Collapse” As It Moves To Allow Businesses To Walk Away From Commercial Leases – ” As the Commercial Observer reports, last Friday, the California Senate Judiciary Committee advanced a bill that would allow small businesses — like cafes, restaurants and bars — to renegotiate and modify lease deals if they have been impacted by shelter-in-place orders and economic shutdowns. If an agreement isn’t reached after 30 days of negotiations, the tenant can break the lease with no penalty, effectively starting a revolution in the world of credit by retroactively transforming commercial loans into non-recourse debt.”

First US Troops Arrive In Colombia Pursuant To Latest Deployment – “‘Please submit a report to the Congress as soon as possible, explaining in detail the nature, objectives and conditions of the foreign military presence in our country so that it may be submitted for our consideration,’ says the letter sent to the Presidency… The ‘military assistance’, as it has been called, will take effect from 1 June and, according to the United States Southern Command, it is the first time in history that support of this nature has been provided to an allied country in the Latin American region… However, several political sectors in the Congress have questioned such assistance, taking into account the recent threats by the United States government against the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro. It is even said that this would be the best explaination for the decision to send US troops to Colombia at this moment… Defence Minister Carlos Holmes Trujillo said on Monday that there would be a total of 52 soldiers and that they would advise and train the Colombian army in the fight against drug trafficking, without participating in military operations… The move has sparked a political storm, and Trujillo has been summoned to appear before the Senate to explain why he did not consult Congress.”

Why We Stay Asleep When Covid-19 Is Trying to Wake Us Up – by Kelly Brogan, MD, Ali Zeck, Sayer Ji – – “It’s possible that in this moment in time, our shadows are coming to light, meaning we are experiencing opportunities to see where and how we might be holding the very same energy of those we judge and condemn. We are seeing what we are capable of doing when we don’t know what we are capable of doing…in other words, the ways in which we unconsciously derive a sense of power through our need to be right, be in control, control others, and to otherwise imagine that we are important or superior to anyone else. When we look at these areas of our life and relationship (wherever there is conflict in one’s life), we will be given the opportunity to own it or deny it. When we own it, we see that the “enemies” in power are representatives of the suppressed parts of our collective and individual unconscious — the darkness of will within each of us that is disconnected from the heart. And we can simply choose to stop feeding that unconsciousness by remaining, always in our heart space as we allow our awareness to expand and expand and expand.”

It turns out you -can- spot a bad apple. You just can’t remove one – by Simon Black – – “The suspects sued, and amazingly, the court ruled that ‘there was no clearly established law holding that officers violate [the Constitution] when they steal property seized pursuant to a warrant. . .’ and therefore the officers were protected by qualified immunity… Yes, you did read that correctly. And even the Supreme Court now recognizes that qualified immunity has gone too far… In a 2018 case, Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote that qualified immunity is ‘an absolute shield for law enforcement officers, gutting the deterrent effect of the Fourth Amendment. . . it tells officers that they can shoot first and think later, and it tells the public that palpably unreasonable conduct will go unpunished.’.. Justice Clarence Thomas also voiced “growing concern with our qualified immunity jurisprudence” in a 2017 opinion… As long as qualified immunity lasts, it will continue to be abused.”

Criminal Gangs Who Ransacked NYC Arrived In Chauffeured Cars, Used Power Tools, Witnesses Say – by Tyler Durden –“Cars would drive up, let off the looters, unload power tools and suitcases and then the cars would drive away,” she said. “Then the cars would come back pick them up and then drive off to the next spot. They seemed to know exactly where they were going. Some of the people were local, but there were a lot of out-of-towners.”… Murphy said she saw license plates from New Jersey and Pennsylvania and drivers had not even tried to hide their tags.” – Comment: I think it’s safe to speculate that these professional criminals had inside info, i.e. were in collusion with whoever was planning the rioting.

Millions Of Higher-Paying Jobs Targeted As Next Wave Of COVID Layoffs Begins – by Tyler Durden – – “With over 40 million jobs lost in the past two months, a total that puts the Great Depression to shame, one argument tossed around by Wall Street to minimize the impact on lost US productivity is that for the most part, the job losses have been among low-skilled, low-wage, low productivity blue collar jobs, while most higher-paying, white collar jobs have been immune from mass layoffs. However, according to an analysis by Bloomberg economist Yelena Shulyatyeva, this is about to change because “a second wave of layoffs is coming” one which will have a far greater impact on white collar workers where ‘millions of positions are in jeopardy as a result of the spillover impact from massive job losses in March and April.’.. According to the Bloomberg economist, ‘the first wave of over 20 million layoffs in March and April could trigger a second wave of 2 to 6 million as managers follow workers into unemployment and demand-weakness spills over from sector to sector.’ ”

A Third Of Americans Who Lost Their Job Due To COVID Still Waiting For Unemployment Benefits To Arrive – by Tyler Durden – – “Almost 33% of unemployment benefits that have been applied for as a result of coronavirus-related job losses have still not been paid. This is despite the fact that the Treasury has disbursed $146 billion in benefits in three months through May, which is more than all of 2009… Recall, policymakers responded to the virus outbreak by offering $600 per week more in unemployment than usual. The goal was to keep people home and prevent the virus from spreading… But this number still isn’t enough: the total amount owed to Americans during the same period was $214 billion, according to Bloomberg…”

‘It’s a war crime’: Thousands rally in Tel Aviv against Netanyahu annexation bid – Meretz MK, Joint List leader says move would create ‘apartheid’; Sanders sends video message; police forcefully detain photojournalist covering event, arrest 4 demonstrators – by Jacob Magid – – “Police initially sought to block the rally but backtracked Friday after meeting with organizers, who urged participants to wear masks and adhere to social distancing guidelines… Dozens of officers were securing the demonstration after police said attendance would be capped at 2,000, though the Haaretz daily put turnout at 6,000 people in what appeared to be the largest protest in the country since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.”

Bricks, fires, frozen bottle projectiles: the organized tactics of America’s violent rioters – by Christine Dolan and John Solomon – – “Police intelligence units have uncovered encrypted and walkie-talkie communications as well as social media postings that coordinate the delivery and hiding of weapons and projectiles and the direction of anarchists to specific locations at specific times… – In essence, these professional rioters have created command-and-control apparatus as well as supply chains unseen in prior riots that followed the deaths of Michael Brown (Ferguson, Mo.) and Freddie Grey (Baltimore) and the verdict in the case of those officers who beat Rodney King (Los Angeles)… – One federal law enforcement official told Just the News, “The anarchists have upped their game.”.. U.S. Park Police Acting Chief Gregory T. Monahan said Tuesday one of the most troubling tactics seen near the White House is anarchists trying to grab police weapons during clashes. Other weaponry, he said, was being hidden in areas for perpetrators to pick up to use against officers: ‘Intelligence had revealed calls for violence against the police, and officers found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street,’ he said… In other cities, stacks of bricks have been discovered in staging areas that end up being slammed against store windows by looters… In New York City, rioters appear to have developed a scouting system to pick targets for fires and looting or to exploit holes in police protection. In the Big Apple, two lawyers were arrested after tossing a molotov cocktail into a police van.”

The Controlled Burn Rages out of Control – by Ben Shapiro – – “That’s bizarre, considering that virtually all Americans agree with the following two propositions: first, that it is evil for a police officer to place his knee on the neck of a prone suspect struggling to breathe for eight long minutes; second, that breaking store windows; stealing televisions and shoes; beating business owners; and attacking police officers is wrong. That seeming unanimity should mean unity in the face of police brutality and rioting and looting… It doesn’t… It doesn’t because members of our political class have decided that instead of rallying against obvious evil, Americans must be categorized as enlightened or benighted based on their answer to one question: Was America and is America rooted in racism and bigotry? If you answer in the negative, you are complicit in racism and bigotry, say our media, academic leaders and high-ranking members of the Democratic Party. If you answer in the affirmative, you may be categorized among the woke, the aware, the sensitive and the decent.” (emphases added)

“Everything Is Telling You “No, It’s Not OK”, And Then You Look At The S&P 500 – It Keeps Going Up” – by Tyler Durden – – “There’s a lot of confused traders out there… That’s the conclusion from reading some of the trader quotes in Bloomberg’s article about how “The Things That Used to Matter to Stock Investors Don’t Anymore” and which, as the title suggests, explains that “neither rising earnings, nor economic growth, nor bargains matter” in the rally that has swept markets since March… We find all of that surprising, because while Bloomberg is right and neither earnings, nor economics, nor valuation matter, what does matter is what Bill Dudley finally admitted to today, namely that the Fed is “basically creating a little bit of moral hazard” and since moral hazard is a binary condition – it is either there or it isn’t – what happened is that as Scott Minerd said, the Fed “sent the world a buy signal and the world responded as requested… But don’t take our word for it – look at what the companies themselves are doing. Having drastically slashed buybacks and takeovers to just $12 billion last month, the second-lowest level in the past decade, according to TrimTabs, corporations have unleashed a record stock selling spree, pushing the total to a record $94 billion.”

“They’re Getting The Sh*t Kicked Out Of Them”: Antifa Attempt To Riot In California Suburb Goes Awry – by Tyler Durden – – “A group of Antifa ‘protesters’ were met with instant justice at the hands of angry residents in the suburban town of Yucaipa, California, located approximately 10 miles East of San Bernardino.”

ECB Preview: Another Massive QE Expansion Coming – by Tyler Durden – – “As the Eurozone continues to battle with the fallout from the COVID-19 crisis, market participants continue to expect the ECB to unveil further support measures on top of the wave of stimulus announced since March… As NewsSquawk writes in its ECB preview, with rates set to be left on hold, focus will be placed on any expansion to the Bank’s Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) whose purchases the ECB revealed for the first time this week. The PEPP currently has a total size of EUR 750bln, however, consensus expects this to be increased at some point. Most analysts expect a EUR 500bln increase this week as part of a pro-active strategy. Others suggest that it could be more prudent for the ECB to hold fire for now, although with an expansion largely priced in any lack of action by the central bank will likely have an adverse market impact. Other potential policy measures include extending the duration of PEPP into next year, purchases of “fallen angels” bonds and expanding the current tiering exemption multiplier of 6x.”

Lawsuit against Transgender Clinic for Children in UK – Girl in transition to “Male” now fears infertility – by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio – – “About this London facility, the only one affiliated with the British National Health Service as Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS), Gospa News had written in April 2019 highlighting the accusations made by various specialist doctors who resigned en masse (18 in three years) for the horrible discovery that hundreds of autistic children were also subjected to the “trangender” treatment, therefore minors without their full psychological balance… Now, while a mother of one of those autistic girls and a girl who regrets having undergone hormonal treatment to become a man blow up the case in a courtroom, the dramatic circumstance emerges that even 35 psychologists have resigned in recent years and have not spared heavy controversy against the alleged superficiality of the assessments. Otherwise The Tavistock said it always took a cautious approach to treatment.”

US Surveillance Bill 6666: The Devil in the Details – by Dr. Mercola – – “As if vaccine passports, COVID-19 contact tracing apps and the Rockefeller Foundation’s plan to reopen America don’t already pose enough of a threat to civil liberties and democratic society, here comes a new bill, H.R. 6666, the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act… “This bill authorizes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to award grants for testing, contact tracing, monitoring, and other activities to address COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019)… Entities such as federally qualified health centers, nonprofit organizations, and certain hospitals and schools are eligible to receive such grants. In awarding the grants, the CDC shall prioritize applicants that (1) operate in hot spots and medically underserved communities, and (2) agree to hire individuals from the communities where grant activities occur… The government grants — a whopping $100 billion of taxpayer money for 2020 alone — would be used by “eligible entities” to hire employees and buy the supplies needed to conduct testing and contact tracing. This includes sending employees to the residences of citizens to conduct COVID-19 testing… If you test positive, you would then be quarantined either at a mobile health unit or in your own home. Contact tracers would also collect information about anyone you may have come into contact with so that they can be tested and, if needed, quarantined.”

This Is Not a Revolution. It’s a Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation – by John W. Whitehead – – “Now you can make all kinds of excuses to justify these shootings, and in fact that’s exactly what you’ll hear from politicians, police unions, law enforcement officials and individuals who are more than happy to march in lockstep with the police. However, as these incidents make clear, the only truly compliant, submissive and obedient citizen in a police state is a dead one… Sad, isn’t it, how quickly we have gone from a nation of laws—where the least among us had just as much right to be treated with dignity and respect as the next person (in principle, at least)—to a nation of law enforcers (revenue collectors with weapons) who treat us all like suspects and criminals?.. This is not how you keep the peace… This is not justice. This is not even law and order… This is certainly not freedom. This is the illusion of freedom.”

THE ABORTION AGENDA: Its Benefactors & What You Don’t Know – by Corey Lynn –

Coronavirus is vanishing so quickly in Britain that Oxford University’s vaccine trial only has a 50% chance of success, professor leading project warns – ● Government struck a deal for 100 million doses of the jab ‘as early as possible,’ – ● Ministers hoped a third of them would be ready to roll out for use in September, ● But Prof Adrian Hill said the rapidly disappearing virus is creating problems, ● If volunteers don’t catch it, scientists can’t prove the vaccine makes a difference – by Vanessa Chalmers and Tom Pyman – – “High hopes have been pinned on the vaccine from Oxford University, with a deal for 30million doses by September already in place… But Professor Adrian Hill said the upcoming trial of 10,000 Britons may flop and produce ‘no result’ because the virus is vanishing in the UK… Normally in large-scale trials, participants will be given the vaccine and mingle among society to see if the jab is effective at preventing them picking up the virus – in this case SARS-CoV-2… But the virus is circulating at low levels. Around 0.25 per cent of the population is currently infected and this will drop further if lockdown continues to work… Volunteers will find it difficult to catch SARS-CoV-2, meaning scientists can’t prove whether the vaccine actually makes any difference.”

Professors Nationwide Offer Support to Rioters and Encourage Antifa (w/Video 5min) – from Need to – – “Leftist college professors take to the media and Twitter accounts to voice their opinions, mostly sympathetic to rioters. They are using social media to promote and justify violence. The presidents and trustees of these universities have not objected to their rhetoric of hatred and violence. Former Antifa member Gabriel Nadales says that the group has grown in numbers and has become more violent because college administrators and college campuses allow Antifa to work under their noses.” – Original article: (no video)

Coronavirus Gives a Dangerous Boost to DARPA’s Darkest Agenda – by Whitney Webb – – “Though DARPA’s futuristic weapons of war often get the most attention from media, the agency has long standing interests in tinkering with, not just the biology of plants, but of humans. DARPA, which is funded to the tune of approximately $3 billion a year, has various avenues through which it pursues these ambitions, with many of those now under the purview of the agency’s “Biological Technologies Office” (BTO), created in 2014. As of late, some of DARPA’s human biology and biotech projects at its BTO have been getting a massive PR boost thanks to the current coronavirus crisis, with recent reports even claiming that the agency ‘might have created the best hopes for stopping Covid-19.’.. Most of these technologies garnering positive media coverage thanks to Covid-19 were developed several years ago. They include the DARPA-funded platforms used to produce DNA and RNA vaccines, classes of vaccine that has never been approved for human use in the U.S. and involve injecting foreign genetic material into the human body. Notably, it is this very class of vaccine, now being produced by DARPA-partnered companies, that billionaire and global health “philanthropist” Bill Gates recently asserted has him “most excited” relative to other Covid-19 vaccine candidates. Yet, key aspects regarding these vaccines and other DARPA “healthcare” initiatives have been left out of these recent positive reports, likely because they provide a window into what is arguably the agency’s darkest agenda.”

As Moderna’s COVID-19 Vaccine Takes the Lead, The Issue of “Gene-editing Vaccines” – by Whitney Webb – – “With Moderna taking a firm lead relative to the other Covid-19 vaccine hopefuls, it is worth taking a closer look at the man who has overseen its development, Moderna’s current Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Tal Zaks. Zaks who began his career at GlaxoSmithKline, oversees “preclinical development, clinical development and regulatory affairs” for Moderna and all of its subsidiaries… In a 2017 TED Talk, two years after joining Moderna, Dr. Zaks spoke at length about how he views mRNA vaccines and their modality, including those he produces at Moderna. In a speech entitled “The disease-eradicating potential of gene editing,” Dr. Zaks’ description of Moderna’s mRNA products as, making permanent edits to human genes, clashes with claims that the genetic material in mRNA vaccines “degrade” over time and do not permanently alter human genetics like DNA vaccines… Beginning his talk, Zaks states that Moderna and similar companies ‘are actually hacking the software of life and that it’s changing the way we think of and treat disease.’ He describes mRNA as ‘critical information that determines what a cell will actually do’ and then states that, if one could ‘introduce a line of code or change a line of code” in a person’s genome, that has “profound implications for everything.’ ”

Facts Vs. Fake. A Worldwide Lockdown of Everything – by Peter Koenig – – “The latest example of conspiracy galore, is the corona crisis. What is playing out in front of our eyes, a worldwide lockdown of everything, followed almost by every government of this globe with similar severity, quarantine, confinement at home for almost everyone under the “pretext” of protecting you – the people – from an invisible enemy – a corona virus. And every government KNOWS it is a disaster for the national and world economy – it is social suicide. Yet they go along – with the orders of whom?.. As most of us who look for our own sources of information, outside the mainstream dominated, government dictated or supported lies, data collection and statistics on COVID infections, as well as death rates, are vastly inflated and willingly falsified, to increase the fear factor and prolong the all destructive lockdown. See this. This horrendous cheat is not just actively practiced in the US, but also in Europe. A point in case is Italy, see this… Another case in point is Switzerland. The official Swiss Federal Office of Statistics (BAS, for German “Bundesamt für Statistik”), keeps records of all deaths in the country per week. In the first 18 weeks of 2020 (ending 3 May 2020), there were actually less deaths reported that in the first 18 weeks of 2015 – 25,400 (2020) vs. 26,596 (2015). How is that possible if the official death corona-death toll in Switzerland is 1,642, as of 24 May 2020. In other words, pretty much the same number of people die every year with or without corona.”

Nineteen Facts About American Policing That Will Blow Your Mind – by Lee Camp – – “With all the protests and anger and violence across the country, a justified discussion about policing has begun on our corporate media airwaves. (I would say the discussion is overdue, but in fact we’ve had it roughly every three years for the past 40 years.) However, despite all the coverage, a deeper debate sits ignored – A debate about why our American police system exists at all, how it works (or doesn’t), and where it came from… The following 19 facts about American policing will change everything you think you know. First let’s start with the sheer amount of murder.”

The Antifa rioters, looters, arsonists, vandals, and murderers have at least one confirmed ally in Congress: AOC – by Lance D Johanson – – “This member of Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. took to Instagram giving advice for protestors on how to conceal their identity, how to stay safe and be well equipped… Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez gives “protestors” tips on how to skirt law enforcement: As an ally to the “protestors,” Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez instructed them to wear “nondescript, solid color, layered clothing” and to “cover identifying tattoos.” Among the items that protestors are recommended to bring include: goggles, masks, and heat resistant gloves. Cortez also recommends that “protestors” leave their phones behind unless they first turn off Face/Touch ID, put the device on airplane mode and disable data.”

“It’s all Bullsh*t” – 3 Leaks that Sink the Covid Narrative – In recent days a series of leaks across the globe have further shown the “official line” on coronavirus does not hold water – by Kit Knightly – – “On May 26th Dr Alexander Myasnikov, Russia’s head of coronavirus information, gave an interview to former-Presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak in which he apparently let slip his true feelings… Believing the interview over, and the camera turned off, Myasnikov said: ‘It’s all bullshit […] It’s all exaggerated… “covid-19 cannot be described as a generally dangerous disease” – “…the clear implication that politicians appear to be pressing the scientific advisors to overstate the danger (they did the same thing in the UK), along with the decision of some civil servants to withhold data from the public until after the lockdown had been extended… ‘The Danish Health Authority continues to consider that covid-19 cannot be described as a generally dangerous disease, as it does not have either a usually serious course or a high mortality rate…’ ” – “A Global False Alarm” – “…the reports conclusions, including [our emphasis]: ● The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level. The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. ● There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm. ● During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.”

Arsonist burns down church for breaking lockdown rules – by Simon Black – – ““Bet you stay home now you hypokrits [sic],” read the misspelled graffiti outside of a burnt down church in Mississippi… That graffiti, of course, is suspected to have come from the unidentified arsonist.

Syrian Army And Allies Deploy Large Reinforcements In Southern Idlib – “The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Iranian-backed forces are amassing a large strike force in the southern countryside of Idlib, according to opposition sources… On May 29, opposition sources said large reinforcements of the army and its allies arrived in the cities of Saraqib and Ma`arat al-Nu`man as well as the Zawiya Mountain… The sources also reported an increase in reconnaissance sorties over Greater Idlib. Syrian and Russian warplanes patrol the region on a regular basis. Nevertheless, no airstrikes have been carried out so far… The SAA’s 25th Division, previously known as the Tiger Forces, and Lebanon’s Hezbollah maintain a strong presence in Greater Idlib… Militants’ violations of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib are increasing. In the last two days, heavy clashes broke out in the region’s southern part… The deployment of additional reinforcements in Greater Idlib could be a defense measure. Nevertheless, the possibility of a new military operation in the region is high. Turkey is yet to fulfill its commitments under the March 5 agreement with Russia.”

Top China General Says Attack On Taiwan An Option If No Other Way To Stop Independence – by Tyler Durden – – “Speaking at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People on the 15th anniversary of the Anti-Secession Law, Li Zuocheng, chief of the Joint Staff Department and member of the Central Military Commission, left the door open to using force. The 2005 law gives the country the legal basis for military action against Taiwan if it secedes or seems about to. Li is one of China’s few senior officers with combat experience, having taken part in China’s ill-fated invasion of Vietnam in 1979… As Reuters notes the comments ‘are especially striking amid international opprobrium over China passing new national security legislation for Chinese-run Hong Kong.’.. Taiwan’s government denounced the comments, saying that threats of war were a violation of international law and that Taiwan has never been a part of the People’s Republic of China… ‘Taiwan’s people will never choose dictatorship nor bow to violence’, Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council said. ‘Force and unilateral decisions are not the way to resolve problems.’ ”

Trump Calls China’s Actions on Hong Kong ‘Plain Violations’ – “U.S. President Donald Trump says China’s actions on Hong Kong are “plain violations of its treaty obligations” in remarks Friday that strongly criticized Beijing on a host of issues including its trade practices, handling of the coronavirus pandemic and dealings with the World Health Organization… Trump said Hong Kong is no longer sufficiently autonomous to merit special treatment from the United States and said his administration will begin a process to eliminate policy exemptions giving the city preferential treatment… During remarks Friday in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said the State Department would be revising its travel advisory for Hong Kong to reflect “increased danger of surveillance.”.. This week, China’s National People’s Congress approved imposing a national security law on Hong Kong despite previous commitments by Beijing to maintain “two systems” — one for the mainland and one for Hong Kong.”

Abducted Civilians Found In Headquarters Of Turkish-Backed Group In Occupied Afrin – “A number of abducted civilians were reportedly found inside a headquarters of the Turkish-backed Hamza Division in the occupied city of Afrin in northern Syria… Militants from Damascus’ Eastern Ghouta and locals stormed the headquarters on May 28 in response to an incident in which the group’s fighters murdered two civilians.. Inside the headquarters, a former center of Kurdish security forces, 17 civilians abducted from different parts of Afrin were found. At least 11 of the detained civilians were women, mainly Kurdish. Opposition sources revealed that many of the women were found naked in the cells… The civilians held in the headquarters were not reportedly charged with any crimes. The Hamza Division (had) even denied detaining some of them in the past… The incident led to an outrage in Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Syria. The Hamza Division and the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) have not made any comment on the matter.”

The Giant Virus in the Room: Corporate Vaccine Makers Need More Pandemics to Grow – by Dady Chery – – “The greater the number of epidemics and vaccine-associated diseases, the greater the boon will be for pharmaceutical companies, and the faster they will grow… As drug makers prepare to make a killing on supposed vaccines against COVID-19, it is important, particularly for those who consider vaccines to be a wise investment today, or those whose retirement savings might get invested in such vaccines without their knowledge, to reflect on the fact that corporations are themselves viruses that can only make money for their investors by growing. The way they will grow is by making more vaccines for yet more pandemics. The new pandemics might come of their own accord, or they might get a little nudge… A road map from those in the shadows: The public has lately been assaulted with relentless announcements about this or that supposed vaccine going into phase I or II clinical trial and the promise that vaccines — if we would only let enough different ones get developed sufficiently rapidly and without oversight — will free us from masks and social distancing.” (emphasis added)

There are one or two clusters [of Palestinian residential areas] where you don’t have to extend sovereignty; [their residents] will remain Palestinian subjects, you might say, but [overall Israeli] security control will apply there.’ ”

BOOM! Guess Who is Calling the Shots on Human Experimentation? (23 min) – Comment: Another research Coup from Amazing Polly

As Moderna’s Covid-19 Vaccine Takes The Lead, Its Chief Medical Officer’s Recent Promotion of “Gene-Editing Vaccines” Comes to Light – by Whitney Webb – – “Moderna’s chief medical officer has described the company’s products as “hacking the software of life” and permanently altering a person’s genetic code. If Moderna is poised to bring the first Covid-19 vaccine to market, a deeper look at his comments and his employer are warranted… Today, Moderna announced that its vaccine candidate, named mRNA-1273, “appeared to produce an immune response in eight people who received it.” Moderna’s response is odd given that the “study” in question is focused on safety and “is actually not designed to measure effectiveness of the vaccine,” according to a report in TIME. Notably, none of the study’s findings on vaccine safety were reported aside from claims it was “generally safe.” It is also worth noting that this “safety-focused” study only began in March and thus, to date, represents only an examination of the vaccine’s effects in the very short term… With Moderna taking a firm lead relative to the other Covid-19 vaccine hopefuls, it is worth taking a closer look at the man who has overseen its development, Moderna’s current Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Tal Zaks. Zaks, an Israeli citizen who began his career at GlaxoSmithKline, oversees “preclinical development, clinical development and regulatory affairs” for Moderna and all of its subsidiaries… Beginning his talk, Zaks states that Moderna and similar companies “are actually hacking the software of life and that it’s changing the way we think of and treat disease.” He describes mRNA as “critical information that determines what a cell will actually do” and then states that, if one could “introduce a line of code or change a line of code” in a person’s genome, that has “profound implications for everything.” He then falsely claims that Moderna’s products at the time were proven to “work in people” as the company, prior to Covid-19, was never able to convince the federal government to license its mRNA vaccines for human use due to their lack of effectiveness… Zaks further described his view of well-known diseases like cancer as being caused by “screwed-up DNA” that can be “fixed” with Moderna mRNA vaccines, which he also refers to in the talk as “information therapy” given that he says Moderna’s vaccines work by altering the “operating systems” of human cells…” (underlined emphasis added)

Saudis Conduct Almost 50 New Airstrikes on Yemen – by Drago Bosnic – – “Fighter jets of the Saudi-led military coalition waging war on Yemen carried out at least 47 airstrikes on different parts of the country, further destroying the impoverished country’s infrastructure… Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah TV cited an unnamed Yemeni military source as saying on Wednesday that the Saudi-led fighter jets had pounded localities in Yemen’s Ma’rib, Jawf, Sa’ada, and Hajjah provinces during the previous hours… Majzar and Midghal districts in the central province of Ma’rib were struck 19 times, and Khasf Village in the Hazm district in the northern province of Jawf was pounded five times, the source said. The airstrikes inflicted heavy damage on infrastructure in those localities.”

Nextdoor Helps Spread Neighborhood Snitching By Showering Law Enforcement With Gifts – by Tyler Durden – – “According to a CityLab article, Nextdoor is showering law enforcement with all-expenses paid vacations to their headquarters in San Francisco, California all in an effort to gain law enforcement acceptance and put police on Public Agency Advisory Councils… Charles Husted, the chief of police in Sedona, Arizona, couldn’t contain his excitement. He had just been accepted into the Public Agencies Advisory Council for Nextdoor, the neighborhood social networking app… At a time when most Americans are concerned with just surviving the COVID-19 pandemic, Nextdoor views it as an opportunity to influence law enforcement and local politics…As part of the chosen group, he would be flown to San Francisco on President’s Day, along with seven other community engagement staffers from police departments and city offices across the country. Over two days, they’d meet at Nextdoor’s headquarters to discuss the social network’s public agency strategy. Together, the plan was, they’d stay at the Hilton Union Square, eat and drink at Cultivar, share a tour of Chinatown, and receive matching Uniqlo jackets. All costs — a projected $16,900 for the group, according to a schedule sent to participants — were covered by Nextdoor… Exactly what Nextdoor includes in their law enforcement paid vacations is protected by a corporate non-disclosure agreement.

Desk: Coronavirus Uses Same Strategy As HIV To Evade, Cripple Immune System: Chinese Study Finds – by Tyler Durden – – “Specifically, both viruses remove marker molecules on the surface of an infected cell that are used by the immune system to identify invaders, the researchers said in a non-peer reviewed paper titled “The ORF8 Protein of SARS-CoV-2 Mediates Immune Evasion through Potently Downregulating MHC-I”, posted on pre-print website on Sunday (a paper which the great hordes of amateur epidemiologists will make sure is promptly taken down or else their carefully planted propaganda may be obliterated). They warned that this commonality could mean Sars-CoV-2, the clinical name for the virus, could be around for some time, like HIV… Separately, virologist Zhang Hui and a team from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou also said their discovery added weight to clinical observations that the coronavirus was showing ‘some characteristics of viruses causing chronic infection’… Some more details on the Hui study: the researchers collected killer T cells from five patients who had recently recovered from Covid-19; those immune cells are generated by people after they are infected with Sars-CoV-2, and whose job is to find and destroy the virus. But the killer T cells used in the study were not effective at eliminating the virus in infected cells. When the scientists took a closer look they found that a molecule known as major histocompatibility complex, or MHC, was missing… The molecule is an identification tag usually present in the membrane of a healthy cell, or in sick cells infected by other coronaviruses such as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or Sars. It changes with infections, alerting the immune system whether a cell is healthy or infected by a virus. However, there is one notable disease that makes MHC molecules disappears from the cell surface: HIV.”

Michigan Won’t Report How Many of Its Coronavirus Deaths Were Nursing Home Infections – by Michael Patrick Leahy – – “Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, has failed to implement state level reporting on the number of COVID-19 deaths in the state from long term care facilities more than one month after local media reports first indicated the state of Michigan has a serious problem with COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes… That pattern of failing to report this key public health information continued on Tuesday when Gov. Whitmer refused to answer a reporter’s question about long term care facility reporting in the state… ‘Could you update us on the status of long term care facility reporting. I know we’re transitioning to a new process. Tell us what hasn’t been worked and what we can expect?’ the reporter asked at the governor’s daily briefing… You see me grabbing my mask, because I’m going to hand this over to Dr. J.,’Whitmer responded as she dodged the question and called the state’s Chief Medical Executive and Chief Deputy Director for Health for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Dr. Joneigh Khaldun to the podium… Khaldun’s response was evasive and indefinite…”

JPMorgan’s Dimon Admits “Fed Liquidity Is Propping Up Stocks” – by Tyler Durden – – “However, as Mises Institute’s Samuele Murtinu and Peter G. Klein noted in a recent article, while The Fed is doing “whatever it takes” to prop up the ‘economy’ (and market)… and explain why that’s a very bad thing in the longer-term… No sooner had the COVID-19 recession hit the US economy – with its mandatory business and school closures, travel bans, shelter-in-place orders, and a massive drop in commercial activity – than politicians, academics, journalists, and business leaders began calling for the Fed to save it… The Fed’s response didn’t take long: a) $2.3 trillion in new loans to households, businesses, markets, and state and local governments; b) a cut in the federal funds rate to 0–0.25 percent and a promise to keep it low indefinitely; c) open-ended purchases of Treasurys and government-guaranteed and commercial mortgage-backed securities; d) short-term loans to “primary-dealer” financial institutions in exchange for collateral, including investment-grade debt; e) support for money market mutual funds; f) direct lending to banks, households, consumers, small firms, and corporations, also by purchasing investment-grade corporate bonds and commercial paper; and g) lowering banks’ loss-absorbing capital and reserve requirements. No one would accuse the Powell Fed of standing idly by!.. These policies will do tremendous harm to the US economy.

Billionaires Increase Net Worth by $434B During Coronavirus Lockdowns – by John Binder – – “Between March 18 and May 19, the nation’s more than 600 billionaires have increased their net wealth by 15 percent from $2.9 trillion in March to now nearly $3.4 trillion, even as more than 36 million Americans are jobless… The analysis of Forbes data, conducted by researchers with the left-leaning Americans for Tax Fairness group, detailed how the wealth of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft Co-Founder Bill Gates, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffet, and Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has increased by $75.5 billion since the nation’s coronavirus lockdowns began in March… These five billionaires’ growth in net wealth, alone, accounted for 21 percent of all the wealth growth over the last two months among the more than 600 billionaires in the U.S.”

Your “Immunity Passport” Future Begins To Materialize As Airlines Call For Digital ID Tracking Systems – by Derrick Broze – – “The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents 299 airlines, recently issued their publication, Biosecurity for Air Transport A Roadmap for Restarting Aviation, which outlines their strategy to open up air travel as governments begin to lift travel restrictions… Under a section titled, “The passenger experience” and “Temporary biosecurity measures,” the IATA describes their vision of post-COVID-19 flights. The organization calls for contact tracing, a controversial method of tracking the civilian population to track the spread of COVID-19…‘We foresee the need to collect more detailed passenger contact information which can be used for tracing purposes,’ the report states. ‘Where possible, the data should be collected in electronic form, and in advance of the passenger arriving at the airport including through eVisa and electronic travel authorization platforms.’.. Interestingly, this call for pre-boarding check-in using “electronic travel authorization platforms” coincides with the recent announcement of the Covipass and the Health Pass from Clear, both of which call for a digital ID system using biometrics and storing travel, health, and identification data.”

Selective Assassinations Continue Unabated In Colombia – “Two demobilized and disarmed FARC members who were participating in the transition to civilian life in accordance with the Peace Accord signed with the Colombian government in 2016 have also been murdered in Huila this year. On Sunday 24 May in the neighbouring province of Tolima, the son of a demobilized FARC combatant was shot dead… According to the program Somos Defensores, 124 social leaders were assassinated during 2019. So far in 2020, there are already more than 100 community leaders who have been violently killed, according to statistics from the Institute for Development and Peace Studies (Indepaz)… The assassinations come less than two weeks after the Colombian government put a definitive end to the already troubled peace dialogues with the ELN (Ejército de Liberación Nacional – National Liberation Army), launching a major military operation against an ELN encampment located in the province of Bolivar (in the north of the country) that killed two senior commanders and at least three others.”

USA Plan: Militarized Control of Population. The “National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan” – by Manlio Dinucci – – “At the top, the “Pandemic Testing Board (PTB), akin to the War Production Board that the United States created in World War II“. The Pandemic Testing Board would “consist of leaders from business, government and academia” (government representatives would not in the first row, but finance and economic representatives being listed in order of importance)… This Supreme Council would have the power to decide productions and services with an authority similar to that conferred to the President of the United States in wartime by the Defense Production Act… The plan calls for 3 million US citizens to be Covid-19 tested weekly, and the number should be raised to 30 million per week within six months. The goal is to achieve the ability to Covid-19 test 30 million people a day, which is to be realized within a year… For each test, “a fair market reimbursement (e.g. $100) for all Covid-19 assays” is expected. Thus, billions of dollars a month of public money will be needed… The Rockefeller Foundation and its financial partners will help create a network for the provision of credit guarantees and the signing of contracts with suppliers, that is large companies that manufacture drugs and medical equipment… According to the Plan, the “Pandemic Control Council” is also authorized to create a “Pandemic Response Corps”: a special force (not surprisingly called “Corps” like the Marine Corps) with a staff of 100 to 300 thousand components.”

Another Bank Bailout Under Cover of a Virus – by Ellen Brown – – “States are excellent credit risks – far better than banks would be without the life-support of the federal government. States have a tax base, they aren’t going anywhere, they are legally required to pay their bills, and they are forbidden to file for bankruptcy. Banks are considered better credit risks than states only because their deposits are insured by the federal government and they are gifted with routine bailouts from the Fed, without which they would have collapsed decades ago… State and local governments with a mandate to serve the public interest deserve to be treated as well as private Wall Street banks that have repeatedly been found guilty of frauds on the public. How can states get parity with the banks? If Congress won’t address that need, states can borrow interest-free at the Fed’s discount window by forming their own publicly-owned banks. For more on that possibility, see my earlier article here… As Buckminster Fuller said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, create a new model that makes the old model obsolete.” Post-COVID-19, the world will need to explore new models; and publicly-owned banks should be high on the list.”

Bolivia Crisis Deepens Amid Growing Rift Between Bolivian Armed Forces And Post-Coup Government – ” ‘The government cannot keep silent. It has to explain to Bolivians what is happening. A transitional government that is too concerned with placing its people in public institutions is not a transitional government, it already seems like a government that wants to install itself, but it is not ethical and journalism has the job of unmasking this reality. It is very difficult… We Bolivians have to know if this government is interested in life. From speech, from word they tell us, life comes first, but beyond that, they do not act accordingly. Really, how many reagents were bought (for treatments), where are they?.. They have announced that they have provided 500 beds for intensive care. Where are they? Journalism has to help us show – there they are. Up until now we do not know what is happening, we cannot live on intentions, intentions are not the truth, the truth is the facts and there is the journalist… The government cannot remain silent. It has to explain what is happening.’ ”

Smooth sailing for Iranian tankers with China’s backing – A threatened US naval blockade against Venezuela is averted as Beijing throws its support behind Tehran and Caracas – by Vijay Prashad – – “It is unlikely that the United States would have allowed these ships to enter Venezuelan waters if it did not feel that they had the backing of China (and behind it, Russia). There’s no question that Washington, despite all its attempts to change the balance of forces in the world, had to come to terms with China’s decision to stand with the government in Venezuela and in Iran… US hybrid wars will continue; US rhetorical belligerence will continue; US expenditure on arms to overshadow the rest of the world in military terms will continue; all this is true. But at the same time, the United States has had to accept that it cannot act easily if China decides to build a shield around certain countries. Evidence of this came when Fortune sailed into Venezuela.”

The 2006 Origins of the Lockdown Idea – by Jeffrey A. Tucker – – “Fourteen years ago, two federal government doctors, Richard Hatchett and Carter Mecher, met with a colleague at a burger joint in suburban Washington for a final review of a proposal they knew would be treated like a piñata: telling Americans to stay home from work and school the next time the country was hit by a deadly pandemic… When they presented their plan not long after, it was met with skepticism and a degree of ridicule by senior officials, who like others in the United States had grown accustomed to relying on the pharmaceutical industry, with its ever-growing array of new treatments, to confront evolving health challenges… Drs. Hatchett and Mecher were proposing instead that Americans in some places might have to turn back to an approach, self-isolation, first widely employed in the Middle Ages… How that idea — born out of a request by President George W. Bush to ensure the nation was better prepared for the next contagious disease outbreak — became the heart of the national playbook for responding to a pandemic is one of the untold stories of the coronavirus crisis.”

mRNA vaccines, a primer: How they work, why they’re “cleaner” than traditional vaccines, and why they might prove catastrophic in a rushed coronavirus response – by Mike Adams – – “In effect, we might say that mRNA vaccines are the creation of a deluded society that has censored the truth about nutrition for so long that almost everyone believes we have to become medical mechanics to fix all the body’s problems using advanced nanotechnology and expensive breakthroughs. But in reality, your immune system functions for free… and you were born with it. Sadly, most people refuse to nourish their immune systems with the necessary components to support effective function. And almost no one in any position of authority or power will dare recommend nutrition when there’s so much money to be made from vaccines and patented pharmaceuticals… What if the answer to the coronavirus were as simple as recommending vitamin D and zinc? If we were only wise enough to allow our own internal nanotechnology to do its job, we wouldn’t have to try to hijack the body’s cells using elaborate, expensive and risky medical interventions… In the same way that the lottery is a tax on people who can’t do math, vaccines are medicine for those who don’t understand nutrition.”

From the Official-Globalist-Propaganda Desk: WHO suspends coronavirus trial of hydroxychloroquine drug taken by Trump – Move comes after study indicates use of the arthritis and malaria medication on COVID-19 patients could increase their chances of dying – by NIna Larson – – “The World Health Organization said Monday it had temporarily suspended clinical trials of hydroxychloriquine as a potential treatment for COVID-19 being carried out across a range of countries as a precautionary measure… The decision came after publication last week of a study in The Lancet which indicated that using the drug on COVID-19 patients could increase their chances of dying, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual press conference… Tedros said that the executive group of the so-called Solidarity Trial, in which hundreds of hospitals across several countries have enrolled patients to test several possible treatments for the novel coronavirus, had as a precaution suspended trials using that drug.”

mRNA vaccines, a primer: How they work, why they’re “cleaner” than traditional vaccines, and why they might prove catastrophic in a rushed coronavirus response – by Mike Adams – – “● The profit-motivated rush to deploy mRNA vaccines to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus is causing regulators and researchers to skip (or accelerate) many critical steps in quality control and clinical trials. This is likely to result in catastrophic consequences — unintended side effects — if such vaccines are granted approval for widespread deployment without proper long-term clinical trials. ● mRNA vaccines could be maliciously exploited to weaponize vaccines to target critical physiological functions in humans. This is similar in effect to “RNA interference” technology which is a gene suppressing innovation that has been studied for use as an insect-killing pesticide technology in crops. Although the mechanisms of mRNA vaccines and RNA interference technology are very different, they can achieve many of the same outcomes such as induced infertility or death in targeted organisms, which could include humans. Technically, this could also be exploited to target specific genetic subgroups of humans such as those of African descent.”

New Rockefeller COVID-19 Action Plan & The UN’s Official NWO Website As The CDC Goes Door to Door (45 min) – New video by Spiro Skouras with Helen Buyniski – Helen took a certificated Covid-19 Contact Tracing training program from the Johns Hopkins University website. They also dig into a recent Rockefeller Foundation document “National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan – Pragmatic steps to reopen our workplaces and our communities” – and a program run by the CDC in Atlanta, Georgia, where they’re located, called a “Zero Prevalence Survey,” where they sent out teams of programmed apparatchiks, er, professional personel, who not only went to “randomly selected houses” to confront people with invasive questionnaires, but actually drew blood for antibody testing.

Second Iranian Tanker ‘Forest’ Reaches Venezuelan Exclusive Economic Zone, Tracking Data Shows – “The second tanker follows the first of five Iranian vessels carrying an estimated 1.53 barrels of gasoline. The first vessel, the ‘Fortune’, successfully reached Venezuela the day before, and was escorted by the Bolivarian Navy… Second oil tanker ‘Forest’ from Iran has entered the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Venezuela in early Sunday, met by the country’s Navy. It followed the first tanker from Iran, ‘Fortune’, that successfully reached Venezuelan coast a day before… Three more oil tankers are expected to arrive to Venezuela from Iran. In total, all five vessels are carrying an estimated 1.53 million barrels of gasoline.”

Iranian Tankers To Reach Venezuela In Next 24 Hours Amid “Threat Of Imminent Military Force By US” – by Tyler Durden – – ” ‘We hope the Americans will not make a mistake,’ Rouhani stressed further to Qatar’s head of state, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. Iran previously warned that any US attempt at intercepting its fuel tankers ‘would have serious repercussions for the Trump administration ahead of the November elections’… Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino upped the ante Wednesday in vowing the military escort will be prepared to defend the ships in the face of any potential American intervention: ‘When they enter our exclusive economic zone, they will be escorted by Bolivarian National Armed Forces boats and planes to welcome them in and thank the Iranian people for their solidarity and cooperation,’ Padrino said on state television…, Inc. @TankerTrackers . By our estimates, FORTUNE is approximately 10-12 hours away from entering Venezuela Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). From our understanding, she will then be escorted by the Venezuelan navy to shore. #OOTT …‘ ”

Bankruptcy Tsunami Begins: Thousands Of Default Notices Are “Flying Out The Door” – by Tyler Durden – – “Some landlords get it, according to Tom Mullaney, managing director of restructuring at real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle. Retailers he represents are getting default letters that are understanding and sympathetic; other landlords strike a more combative tone… What’s more interesting is the action, or lack of it, by the landlords afterward, Mullaney said. “In a lot of cases, the letters that are being sent aren’t being followed up on,” he said – the landlords are simply preserving their legal rights. Maybe they just don’t have the fund to retain lawyers?.. Others, meanwhile, are just taking the law into their own hands: some property owners have run out of patience and have locked out Mullaney’s clients. ‘The environment is getting pretty testy and emotional on both sides of the table,’ he said. ‘The only thing worse than being a retailer right now is being a retail landlord.’ ”

As Showdown Looms Over Iran’s Oil Shipments To Venezuela, US & NATO Forces Poised For Possible Interception – “According to oil and security analysts, Iran’s shipment of 5 gasoline-laden ships to Venezuela could generate a scenario of unprecedented confrontation with US-led allied forces in the Caribbean… Five Iranian oil tankers that appear to be carrying gasoline and similar products with a value of at least $46,000,000 were sailing to Venezuela on Sunday, part of an agreement between the two nations sanctioned by the United States amid mounting tensions between Tehran and Washington… All five ships were loaded at the Persian Gulf Star refinery near Bandar Abbas, Iran. They then travelled through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea, according to data collected by the Automatic Vessel Identification System (AIS), which serves as a tracking beacon.”

Will Trump Really Start Two Wars Instead of “Just” One? – by The Saker – – “The bottom line is this: if Uncle Shmuel decides to seize/attack the Iranian tankers, there is not only a quasi certitude of a war between the US and Iran (or, at the very least, an exchange of strikes), but there is also a non-trivial possibility that Maduro and his government might actually decide to provoke the US into a war they really can’t win…Is Trump capable of starting a process which will result in not one, but two wars?.. You betcha he is! A guy who thinks in categories like “my button is bigger than yours” or “super-dooper weapons” obviously understands exactly *nothing* about warfare, while the climate of messianic narcissism prevailing among the US ruling classes gives them a sense of total impunity.”

Vaccine Trial Catastrophe: Moderna Vaccine has 20% ‘Serious’ Injury Rate in High Dose Group – by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. – – Despite Moderna’s cheery press release this week, the clinical trial results for its groundbreaking COVID vaccine could not be much worse… The vaccine, developed and championed by Anthony Fauci and financed by Bill Gates, used an experimental mRNA technology that the two men hoped would allow rapid deployment to meet President Trump’s ambitious “warp speed” time line. Dr. Fauci was so confident of his shot’s safety that he waived ferret and primate studies (Moderna suspiciously reported no specific health data from its mouse studies). That appears to have been a mistake… Three of the 15 human guinea pigs in the high dose cohort (250 mcg) suffered a “serious adverse event” within 43 days of receiving Moderna’s jab. Moderna did not release its clinical trial study or raw data, but its press release, which was freighted with inconsistencies, acknowledged that three volunteers developed Grade 3 systemic events defined by the FDA as “Preventing daily activity and requiring medical intervention.”.. Moderna allowed only exceptionally healthy volunteers to participate in the study. A vaccine with those reaction rates could cause grave injuries in 1.5 billion humans if administered to “every person on earth”. That is the threshold that Gates has established for ending the global lockdown.”

Visa Applies For Digital Dollar Blockchain Patent – by Jason Brett – – “Described as ‘Digital Fiat Currency’ the patent was initially filed by Visa on November 8, 2019, with the USPTO commenting today, “It takes quite a while…” to publish the filing of a patent. Visa’s patent is described as a central entity computer that receives requests that include the serial number and denomination of a physical currency. The creation of the digital currency and the removal of the physical currency from circulation in a fiat currency system is recorded on a blockchain… ‘Visa has a vast global team of inventors and innovators working on cutting edge payment technologies. Each year we seek patents for hundreds of new ideas,’ says a Visa spokesperson. ‘While not all patents will result in new products or features, Visa respects intellectual property and we are actively working to protect our ecosystem, our innovations and the Visa brand.’ ”

Rice Email: FBI Dir. Comey accused patriot Gen.Michael Flynn of betraying America – with zero evidence – by Alice Green – – “Furthermore, Rice’s email supports President Trump’s claim that Obama ordered the FBI to spy on the incoming administration… The bottom line: Comey, as head of the FBI, urged Obama to withhold information from an incoming adviser to the President of the United States when he had no reason to suspect Flynn of espionage, treason, or any other crime… Comey has never been an adviser to the POTUS nor has he investigated one, so his supposition that Flynn’s conversations with Kislyak were “unusual” has no merit. It is obvious that Comey listened to Flynn’s conversations without probable cause of any kind. Comey is the real criminal here, not Flynn.”

Bill Gates Accused of Trying to Bribe Nigerian Lawmakers to Pass Health Bill – “The billionaire Microsoft co-founder and American philanthropist has denied offering Nigerian lawmakers a $10 million bribe to pass the legislation, Nigeria’s Premium Times reported on Monday. Nigeria’s opposition party, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), alleges that Gates offered politicians $10 million to secure the “speedy passage” of the health bill. The party cites a “human intelligence report” for the information.”

Anti-Homeschooling Harvard Prof Doubles Down: ‘Right-Wing Christian Conservatives’ Became ‘Dominant’ and ‘Took Over’ – by Dr. Susan Berry – – “Additionally, a new RealClear Opinion Research poll released last week found 40 percent of families surveyed during the coronavirus crisis said they are more likely to choose to homeschool their children or engage in virtual learning once the pandemic subsides… With political party as a factor, 45.7 percent of those parents who said they would be “more likely” to homeschool identified as Democrat, while 42.3 percent identified as Republican… Among those parents who said they were “more likely” to homeschool, 36.3 percent were white, 50.4 percent were black, 38.2 percent were Hispanic, and 53.8 percent were Asian… In response to Bartholet’s rant against homeschooling, the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts held a virtual conference last week titled, ‘Who Owns Your Children? Home Education in an Authoritarian Age.’ ”

From the If-You-Only-Read-One-Article-This-Month Desk: On Viral Attacks by Benevolent Benefactors – by Doug “Uncola” Lynn – – “The Giant Vampire Squid Cult has been consolidating global power for decades. It knows it’s outnumbered and the only way it can survive is through deception and by spinning narratives designed to trick those who threaten them (i.e. you) into granting them the permission to rule… Upon gaining control of the entertainment, business, and political realms, The Cult has advanced only those who have demonstrated their allegiance. Those who don’t obey are shunned, banished, or imprisoned like former Trump advisors Paul Manafort and Roger Stone; while others who stray off the reservation are “expired” (think Seth Rich)… The reason daily events are so dire at present is because The Cult has consolidated power, through technology, to the extent they don’t believe they need our permission any longer. It’s why their “noose” is now tightening around our necks in the form of societal restrictions. Or as musician Frank Zappa once stated: ‘The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.‘ ”

Gov Newsom Calls For $1 Trillion In Federal Aid For California As LA Drags Feet On Reopening: Live Updates – by Tyler Durden – – “Update (1750ET): Instead of holding a press briefing on Tuesday, Cali Gov Gavin Newsom appeared on CNBC’s “Fast Money” for an interview with host Melissa Lee at 5pmET… During the interview, the Cali governor reiterated his demand for $1 trillion in federal aid for California, despite emerging evidence that economic reopenings haven’t produced the feared spike in cases – in fact, many states that have dragged their feet on reopening have seen higher rates of infection… Fox Business’s Charlie Gasparino reported that there is a “growing consensus” between both parties for another $1 trillion round of stimulus spending after Memorial Day. But with every governor walking to the White House with their hand out, the battle over the next aid bill should be especially fierce, forcing Dems to reckon with the reality that they really don’t need all that money.”

“Creative Destruction Is Dead”: Powell Has Spawned An Army Of Zombies – by Tyler Durden – – “Which also means that the corporate sector will have to engage in even more price cutting, resulting in even more deflation, forcing the Fed to do even more QE, resulting in even more deflation and so on until we hit the monetary singularity at which point the Fed will finally start literally paradropping money to everyone… There is a silver lining: the current artificial state will only exist as long as the central bank is explicitly active in the market. Some say as successful as the Fed has been boosting credit-market liquidity, the support is only temporary, and will result in a wave of defaults and distress when it steps back.. “There will be plenty” of debt defaults and bankruptcies when corporate borrowers start running out of cash in the months ahead, Howard Marks said in a Bloomberg TV interview, repeating what we said two weeks ago in a “Biblical” Wave Of Bankruptcies Is About To Flood The US. ‘There are large, highly levered companies and investment vehicles that the government and Fed rescue program is not likely to reach and take care of.’.. Others see central-bank intervention keeping companies alive for much longer, crowding out investment and employment at healthy firms, similar to what occurred in Japan during the nation’s ‘lost decade’ of the 1990s, where the ‘zombie company’ term was first applied.”

The Shutdown May Soon Collapse In Pennsylvania Thanks To Local Resistance – by Zachary Yost – – “There is not only confusion regarding the economic shutdown rules, but also over the public health approach as more and more data becomes available. On May 6, it was revealed to lawmakers during a phone briefing that of the roughly 3,100 virus deaths by that date, 68 percent had occurred in nursing homes and similar care facilities, that the average age of those who had passed was 79 (in a state where the average life expectancy is 78.5 years), and that 84.4 percent of the victims suffered from one to four comorbidities… These shocking figures are even more tragic in light of the fact that the state’s aggressive plan for protecting nursing homes was never fully implemented. The state government’s incompetence is even more egregious considering the fact that the state health department issued a memo on March 18 stating that ‘Nursing care facilities must continue to accept new admissions and receive readmissions for current residents who have been discharged from the hospital who are stable….This may include stable patients who have had the COVID-19 virus.’.. Although the administration apparently lacked the ability to enact their own plan for protecting nursing homes, Wolf did have the time to make sure to include radical progressive demands in his state recovery plan, such as an increase of the minimum wage to $12 which would be set to grow to $15 and an expansion of mandatory paid leave policies… With such chaos, confusion, and incompetence in the background, it is little wonder that there is a growing sense of rebellion among both the inhabitants and local government officials throughout the state.

Which Side of the “Vaccine Information War” Are You On? – by Derrick Broze – – “The Last American Vagabond has repeatedly exposed how the Gates Foundation (and the Gates-funded WHO) are funding a nexus of various non-profits, NGOs, government bodies, and pharmaceutical companies… Finally, The Times acknowledges that one of the biggest fears of the skeptics – that travel, work, and normal life might not resume without proof of vaccination – is likely true but dismisses any attempt at dialogue on the topic. “Third, if and when a Covid-19 vaccine is approved for widespread use, people may be required to take it before being allowed to fly on certain airlines, attend certain schools or enter certain businesses,” he admits. Of course, to this writer and The NY Times, ‘That’s a good idea, public health-wise, but it would play into some of the worst fears of the anti-vaccine movement.’ The writer does acknowledge that many activists are concerned about mandatory vaccinations… Beyond the one sentence acknowledgement, he does not dare dive deep into the constitutional questions surrounding forced vaccinations. While he notes that people may be required to receive a vaccine to fly, work, attend school, or enter certain businesses, he does not bother answering the question of why Americans are concerned about such policies.”

NATO Expresses Support Of Turkey’s Activity In Libya As It Prepares To Begin Extracting Resources – “Regarding the situation in Libya, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg held a discussion, and issued a statement saying that the Alliance’s position on the conflict was uniform… On Libya, Stoltenberg reiterated NATO’s readiness to help the war-torn North African country by building its defense and security capacities. The Erdoğan-Stoltenberg conversation came on the same day the latter explicitly lent support to the GNA… In an interview with Italian daily La Repubblica, Stoltenberg acknowledged the fact that there is an ongoing arms embargo on Libya, stressing: ‘However, this doesn’t mean to put on the same level the forces led by [Khalifa] Haftar and the government of Fayez al-Sarraj, the only one recognized by the U.N.’ ”

“News Stories Avoid Naming Israel” – by Philip M. Giraldi – – “Last September, it was revealed that the placement of technical surveillance devices by Israel in Washington D.C. was clearly intended to target cellphone communications to and from the Trump White House. As the president frequently chats with top aides and friends on non-secure phones, the operation sought to pick up conversations involving Trump with the expectation that the security-averse president would say things off the record that might be considered top secret… A Politico report detailed how “miniature surveillance devices” referred to as “Stingrays” were used to imitate regular cell phone towers to fool phones being used nearby into providing information on their locations and identities. According to the article, the devices are referred to by technicians as ‘international mobile subscriber identity-catchers or IMSI-catchers, they also can capture the contents of calls and data use.’.. Over one year ago, government security agencies discovered the electronic footprints that indicated the presence of the surveillance devices near the White House. Forensic analysis involved dismantling the devices to let them ‘tell you a little about their history, where the parts and pieces come from, how old are they, who had access to them, and that will help get you to what the origins are.” One source observed afterwards that ‘It was pretty clear that the Israelis were responsible.’.. So two significant stories currently making the rounds have been bowdlerized and disappeared to make the Israeli role in manipulating and spying against the United States go away. They are only two of many stories framed by a Zionist dominated media to control the narrative in a way favorable to the Jewish state.”

Gavin Newsom Worried About ‘Potential Third Waves’ of Coronavirus – by Tony Lee – – “Policymakers have been expressing concerns about a potential second wave this fall, but the California governor on CNN went further, saying previous pandemics like the one in 1918 had multiple waves… ‘If history doesn’t repeat itself, it certainly rhymes. And the realities of previous pandemics around the globe and those we experienced in the United States suggest not just second waves, but potential third waves,’ Newsom said. ‘And so one has to be very, very sober as we move forward to this next round of re-openings, and do so with the modifications that are required of the moment, and, I think, a humbleness of spirit on all sides of the political aisle that’s also needed at this moment.’.. Newsom was responding to questions about how quickly schools will re-open and if there will be major gatherings like sporting events and concerts this year in the Golden State… He predicted that “some school will not be” ready to open in the fall though “many schools will be.”.. ‘And it’s all conditioned on our ability to not only keep our children safe, but to keep staff and faculty safe, to keep the community safe. So, it’s all predicated on data, on science, on not just observed evidence, the reality on the ground,’ Newsom said.”

Pennsylvania “Cowards” Besiege the Capitol: The Inside of an American Anti-Lockdown Protest — Photo Essay – by Lancaster Blog – – ” In Pennsylvania, where the 40-hospitals and 85,000-employees UPMC health provider has declared it will go back to normal and proceed with elective procedures as the epidemic threat was overblown and is now over, the Democrat Governor is nonetheless maintaining a stringent lockdown. Four counties have actually withdrawn obedience, telling the businesses in their borders they’re free to disobey Governor’s orders if they want to. For this act of open rebellion and fearlessness in the face of a supposedly deadly plague the bed-wetting Governor has deemed them “cowards” “desert[ing] in the face of the enemy.” But for some at least the greater enemy is not a virus which spreads merely to survive, but the Governor who knowingly tramples on their rights and livelihoods of his own political calculation, lest a speedy reopening with minimal negative consequences demonstrates a lockdown wasn’t necessary in the first place. It was these deplorable “cowards” who gathered — largely maskless — Friday in the open in front of the state capitol to demand an end to the mandatory, government-enforced surrender to a little virus. I felt the report below has good photographs for a very intimate feel of what the inside of an anti-lockdown demo in the US looks like.

The Lockdown Left Is Waging a Class War…on the Working Class – by Brendan O’Neill – – “And of course there’s a huge element of hypocrisy in the middle-class left’s insistence that workers be kept at home until their workplaces have been made 100 per cent Covid-proof (as if such a thing were even possible). These people are still shopping for food, getting Dirty Burgers delivered by Deliveroo guys, giving lectures via internet systems maintained by electricians. If they really thought work was unsafe right now, they’d be agitating for a complete shutdown. They aren’t, of course, because the ‘work as death’ line they are currently pushing is entirely cynical. It is not based on reasoned reflection of the threat posed by Covid-19, far less on the needs and interests of working people, but rather on the question of how best to score political points against the Tory government… But there is nothing remotely pro-working-class about keeping working people locked down with no regard whatsoever for the devastation that will result from this unprecedented shutdown of economic life and from the manmade recession we are creating.”

Coronavirus Victims Die While Government Hoards Medication – – “Governments are hoarding more than 100 million doses of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) while victims of COVID-19 are dying from lack of early treatment, which an increasing number of physicians and scientists believe is crucial for saving lives. In many places, particularly in nursing homes, victims of COVID-19 are still unable to access HCQ, states the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS)… Pharmaceutical companies donated tens of millions of doses of HCQ to federal and state governments. At least 14.4 million doses of HCQ have been distributed to 14 city governments, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced… Yet virtually none of this has gone for early treatment of COVID-19 victims. Many governors and other officials have impeded the availability of HCQ to millions of Americans, including front-line medical personnel in hospitals, COVID-19 patients’ caregivers, and others exposed to the virus.”

Illinois’ Democrat Gov Will Now Jail Business Owners Who Defy His Lockdown Order – Governor J.B. Pritzker files emergency rule to charge individuals with Class A misdemeanor – by Jay Greenberg – – “Owners of restaurants, bars, barbershops, salons, gyms, and other businesses could now face up to one year in jail plus a fine up to $2,500 for operating in defiance of shutdown orders.”

There’s a new inquisition in the world – we’re made slaves under the pretext of protecting freedoms – by Anastasia Frank – – “But there are also countries such as Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Ukraine, where Christians still go to churches under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church. There are Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, where the Serbian Orthodox Church operates. To strike at the Russian and Serbian churches is to strike at Moscow and Belgrade, that is Washington’s position.Unfortunately, any political manipulation – and the creation of an alliance is not something else – has side effects. They will not affect the Russian government or other forces that did not suit Washington. They will affect ordinary people. But these people do not need politics in religion. They want to pray in a church that they’re used to, that they trust. Why should Washington tell them which church is right and which is wrong?”

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Broward County Administrator Discusses Going Into ‘Family Homes’ to Separate People – by Patrick Howley – – “Administrator Bertha Henry recently discussed a new Coronavirus proposal “that would substantially increase not only the tracing but more testing and case management and isolation, for you, when we have to go into some of these ALF’s (assisted living facilities) and move people out or go into family homes like in some of these, where we’re going into some of these homes, and we have to separate an individual to isolate them they need, you know, we need to make sure that they get care, that they have food, that they have support to be isolated from their home or their family for that 14-day period.”

Moderna reports ‘positive’ results from early data on coronavirus vaccine – by Peter Sullivan – – ” ‘These data substantiate our belief that mRNA-1273 has the potential to prevent COVID-19 disease and advance our ability to select a dose for pivotal trials,’ he added, referring to the potential vaccine… The company also said the vaccine was “generally safe and well tolerated.” All side-effects, including redness in one participant around the injection site, have so far been “transient and self-resolving,” the company noted, adding that no “serious” side-effects have been reported… The company, which is working with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, led by Anthony Fauci, is about to begin a phase two trial and said it hopes to begin a phase three trial in July… ‘We are investing to scale up manufacturing so we can maximize the number of doses we can produce to help protect as many people as we can from SARS-CoV-2,’ said the company’s CEO, Stéphane Bancel.” – Comment: Here it comes, Here comes your Covid-19 Breakdown…

TSA To Check Passengers’ Temperature At Airports – by Tyler Durden – – “The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will be checking passengers’ temperatures at select airports next week… People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that additional details would be unveiled in the near term. The program is expected to roll out at 12 airports next week and will cost $20 million to implement. Thermal check fees will be waived for travelers and likely expensed to the federal government… TSA agents will use handheld thermal devices and thermal sensors mounted on tripods to flag travelers if they register over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit… This comes at a time when demand for air travel has crashed by over 90%. A combination of travel restrictions and shifting consumer choices have resulted in one of the worst collapses for the industry on record. The move to increase safety checks is a bid to reopen the industry that might not see a recovery until 2024… Sources also said TSA’s managing of thermal checks does not fall within its security mandate. At this time, the source said details are limited… The official said anyone who is flagged at a thermal check will be transferred to officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As to what happens next is anyone’s guess…” (emphasis added)

Senate Approves Spy Bill, Possible Link to Pending Covid-19 Actions – by Janet Phelan – – “In a vote of 80-16, the US Senate yesterday approved HR 6172, which reauthorizes several surveillance authorities originally passed into law via the USA PATRIOT Act as temporary measures. HR 6172 cements the collection of business records, the “roving wiretap provision,” and the so-called “lone wolf provision,” which allows the surveillance of those with no known connection to terrorist organizations. While the FBI has testified to the Congress that the “lone wolf provision” has never been used, this is widely thought to be inaccurate and that this provision is the authority under which US citizens, activists and journalists, are being widely surveilled… Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) had proposed a widely publicized amendment which would prohibit the surveillance of American citizens, excluding Americans from the provisions involving wiretapping and data collection tools authorized by the FISA court. This amendment went down in flames, receiving 11 yea votes and 85 votes against… In a speech on the Senate floor, Paul had this to say about HR 6172: ‘To those of us that prize the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, the Patriot Act is a violation of our most precious rights. The Patriot Act, in the end, is not patriotic. The Patriot Act makes an unholy and unconstitutional exchange of liberty for a false sense of security.’ ”

Hezbollah Leader Says Syria Emerged ‘Victorious’ In War, Slams Israeli ‘Fake’ Victories – ” ‘Syria emerged victorious at the end of a universal war.

Its goal is to prevent Syria’s fall in hands of US and Zionist entity,’ he said.”

A Killer Enterprise: How One of Big Pharma’s Most Corrupt Companies Plans to Corner the Covid-19 Cure Market – by Whitney Webb & Raul Diego – – “In August 2001, biopharmaceutical company BioPort faced imminent disaster. A series of company scandals, controversial federal bail-outs and severe, adverse health reactions among U.S. troops were causing both Congress and the Pentagon to reconsider its multi-million dollar contract to provide the military with an anthrax vaccine… Formed for the sole purpose of acquiring a publicly-owned company in Michigan that held the exclusive license to manufacture the only FDA-approved anthrax vaccine in the United States, BioPort sought to quickly expand the size and scope of its contracts with the U.S. military. This strategy was made possible thanks to the former head of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, Adm. William Crowe, who would prove highly instrumental in the rise of BioPort’s vaccine monopoly and its subsequent, aggressive hiring of former government officials as lobbyists… Yet, soon after scoring these multi-million dollar contracts and securing a monopoly on anthrax vaccines, BioPort would claim that they were flailing financially and would subsequently be bailed out to the tune of $24 million at the Pentagon’s request, which cited “national security concerns” as justification.”

Immune mechanisms of pulmonary intravascular coagulopathy in COVID-19 pneumonia – by Prof Dennis McGonagle, PhD, Prof James S O’Donnell, PhD, Kassem Sharif, MD, Prof Paul Emery, MD, Charles Bridgewood, PhD – – “Extensive lung infiltration by macrophages and other immune cells leading to diffuse alveolar damage has been reported in SARS pneumonia, with similar findings emerging in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia… The extensive nature of viral infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) results in diffuse lung inflammation that involves the large juxtaposed pulmonary vascular network… The diffuse, slowly evolving COVID-19 pneumonia has similarities to a MAS-like syndrome with regard to both clinical and laboratory features. These clinical findings suggest that an initial pulmonary intravascular coagulopathy occurs in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia that is distinct from disseminated intravascular coagulation… Herein, we propose a model for the pathophysiology of this pulmonary intravascular coagulopathy and describe how extensive coronavirus infection and age-related changes in immunity, combined with diffuse pulmonary immunothrombosis, explain the cardiovascular mortality in these patients…”

MSM Article Shames Those Who Refuse Contact Tracing App COVIDSafe – by Makia Freeman – – “COVIDsafe, the new surveillance and privacy-violating app, launched by the Australian Government, has exceeded over 5 million downloads in a country whose population is around 25 million. That means 20% of Australians have bought the fear and propaganda around COVID-19 to the extent that they would willingly give up their privacy and liberty for a bit of purported security. The backend of the app runs on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, allowing Jeff Bezos’ Amazon corporation (and thus the US Government, with which it is joined at the hip) to potentially seize the data of Australian citizens.”

April 2020 Rockefeller Foundation Paper Urges Testing and Tracing Entire US Population – by Makia Freeman – – “Last month on April 21st, the New World Order (NWO) manipulators released a 2020 Rockefeller Foundation Paper entitled National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan – Pragmatic steps to reopen our workplaces and our communities. This came after countless MSM appearances by NWO frontman, eugenicist and depopulation-via-vaccines enthusiast Bill Gates claiming you would need digital certificates and immunity passports to travel around again, and that your inherent rights such as the right to gather or assemble may never return unless you’re vaccinated. Predictably, the April 2020 Rockefeller Foundation Paper is a blueprint for the creation of a colossal nation-wide DNA database of the entire US population. In a moment of raw honesty, the paper even admits that “The Rockefeller Foundation exists to meet moments like this” although to be fair it would be more accurate to say ‘The Rockefeller Foundation on behalf of its NWO masters exists to orchestrate crises like this, then pose as the savior to solve them.’ It calls for testing and tracing of all Americans – initially 1 million per week, then 3 million per week and finally 30 million per week (the “1-3-30 Plan”) until every single American is assimilated into the database.” (emphasis added)

Congress Urges Trump Admin to Stop ICC Investigations Into U.S., Israel – by Adam Kredo – – “A group of nearly 300 members of Congress is calling on the Trump administration to stop the International Criminal Court’s “politically motivated investigations” of the United States and Israel… In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the bipartisan group of lawmakers urged the administration to ‘marshal a diplomatic initiative with like-minded countries who are members of the ICC to call on the ICC to cease its politically motivated investigations into the United States and Israel.’.. The ICC has been pursuing war crimes cases against the United States and Israel that both countries have called illegitimate. The Washington Free Beacon first reported earlier this month that the ICC’s cases are being driven by nonprofit organizations found to have ties to designated terror groups.”

LA Mayor Backpedals Lockdown Extensions After Furious Reaction – by Tyler Durden – – “The mayor of Los Angeles on Tuesday quickly backpedaled from his top health director’s extension of the stay-at-home order that would now last through July, after residents were furious about further quarantines, reported Reuters… Barbara Ferrer, LA County’s Health Director, said the new public health order, now called “Safer at Home,” would go into effect this Friday and last for three months even as Gov. Gavin Newsom said restaurants and other businesses could reopen… ‘While the Safer at Home orders will remain in place over the next few months, restrictions will be gradually relaxed under our 5-stage Roadmap to Recovery, while making sure we are keeping our communities as safe as possible during this pandemic,’ Ferrer said in a statement released Tuesday. ‘We are being guided by science and data that will safely move us forward along the road to recovery in a measured way—one that allows us to ensure that effective distancing and infection control measures are in place.’.. ‘We’re counting on the public’s continued compliance with the orders to enable us to relax restrictions, and we are committed to making sure that LA County is in the best position to provide its 10 million residents with the highest level of wellness possible as we progressively get back to normal,’ Ferrer continued.”

CNN Lied That 68% of Americans Think Vaccine Is Needed Before Return to Normal Life – by Nicholas Grossman – – “Only 9% think thatEven worse, the data doesn’t match CNN’s headline or tweet, which is all many people will see in the age of social media… The article doesn’t link to any polls— never a good sign — but mentions “two Gallup surveys.” I searched Gallup’s polling on coronavirus, and the survey questions are less ambiguous regarding “normal life,” with results that differ substantially from CNN’s claim… One question asks “how soon would you return to your normal day-to-day activities” if “there were no government restrictions,” giving four options. The most popular answer is “after the number of new cases declines significantly,” getting 40 percent in the most recent survey. The least popular answer is “after a coronavirus vaccine is developed.” Only 9 percent went with that.”

Chelsea Clinton On Board Of Trustees For Contact Tracing Group Funded By Bill Gates & George Soros – by Patrick Howley – – “National File reports: The group is already “training and deploying hundreds of contact tracers.” Some citizens fear the potential for mass surveillance posed by contact tracing, especially in light of a Democrat-introduced bill in Congress to authorize contact tracing “at individuals’ residences.” Partners In Health’s involvement will not assuage many fears, considering the group has received funding from George Soros and Bill Gates organizations and counts Chelsea Clinton on its board of trustees.Partners in Health lists George Soros’ Open Society Foundations as an official partner, along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Partners In Health lists Open Society Foundations on its 2015 annual report as a supporter to the tune of $1 million or above, along with the Gates Foundation. Chelsea Clinton serves on Partners in Health’s Board of Trustees, according to its 2019 annual report.… Partners in Health co-founder Paul Farmer’s bio notes: “Farmer’s work attracted the support of philanthropists, including George Soros and Bill and Melinda Gates. In 2002, PIH received a $13 million grant from the Global Fund for improvements in the Cange complex. In 2005 the William J. Clinton Foundation funded a Partners in Health AIDS program in Rwanda.” Farmer and Chelsea Clinton did a Clinton Foundation podcast together in 2019.”

Colorado suspends license of Castle Rock restaurant that opened for Mother’s Day – by Paul Goldberg – – “The Denver Post reports State health officials on Monday indefinitely suspended the business license of a Castle Rock restaurant that opened to large Mother’s Day crowds, Gov. Jared Polis said… C&C Coffee and Kitchen’s license will likely be suspended for at least 30 days, Polis said, because the reopening caused an “immediate health hazard.”.. The state’s action came after the Tri-County Health Department on Monday ordered the restaurant to close until it complies with the statewide COVID-19 public health order limiting restaurants to take out and delivery services… ‘I hope, I pray that nobody falls sick from businesses that chose to violate the law,’ Polis said when announcing the suspension (Comment: I feel the deep sincerity of Polis’ prayer…). ‘But if the state didn’t act and more businesses followed suit, it’s a near guarantee that people would lose their lives and it would further delay the opening of legitimate businesses.’.. Tri-County said it warned C&C Coffee and Kitchen on Friday not to open for Mother’s Day, but the restaurant opened for dine-in services anyway…”

Why Does The Mainstream Media Seem So Desperate To Keep The COVID-19 Lockdowns Going? – by Michael Snyder – – “But the mainstream media seems desperate to keep the lockdowns going, and so they keep telling us that we are “inviting disaster” by ending them. For example, the following comes from a New York Times article that was just published entitled “As States Rush to Reopen, Scientists Fear a Coronavirus Comeback”…Millions of working people and small-business owners who cannot earn money while sheltering at home are facing economic ruin. So dozens of states, seeking to ease the pain, are coming out of lockdown…Most have not met even minimal criteria for doing so safely, and some are reopening even as coronavirus cases rise, inviting disaster. The much-feared “second wave” of infection may not wait until fall, many scientists say, and instead may become a storm of wavelets breaking unpredictably across the country… And this is how that article ended: Having 50 states and more territories do competing and uncoordinated experiments in reopening is ‘daring Mother Nature to kill you or someone you love,’ Dr. Frieden said. ‘Mother Nature bats last, and she bats a thousand.’ ”

From the Government-By-Opinion-Poll Desk: The Daily 202: Governors who raced to relax coronavirus restrictions pay a price in new poll – by James Hohmann – – “While overwhelming majorities of Americans initially gave their governor the benefit of the doubt when they issued orders aimed at slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus, the push by some Republican leaders to quickly reopen states has come at a political cost… A new Washington Post-Ipsos survey of over 8,000 adults has big enough sample sizes to break out state-level results for a dozen medium-to-large states. In these places, pluralities say their governor is handling the outbreak “about right.”.. The exceptions are Florida, Texas and Georgia, where 48 percent of Floridians say restrictions are being lifted too quickly, along with 59 percent in Texas and 65 percent in Georgia.”

Clinton Rabbit Hole Just Got a Lot Deeper…Here is Why – by Laura Steinberg – – “In 2017, then-United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions instructed prosecutors to determine if the potential of reopening the FBI’s investigation into the Uranium One scandal, including possible traitorous activities by the Clinton Foundation. This rabbit hole leads to the year of 2005 when former United States President Bill Clinton and Canadian philanthropist-billionaire Frank Giustra met in Kazakhstan for an AIDS relief program… It was reported that Giustra, head of UrAsia Energy Ltd., met with Kazakhstan officials to purchase uranium contracts. Over the next few years, the Clinton-Giustra partnership continued to flourish, as Giustra donated an estimated $145 million to the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton’s deep money rabbit hole continued… In 2007, UrAsia Energy was bought by Uranium One, a Canadian mining company. However Giustra preserved 60% of controlling interest, according to Canada Free Press. Immediately, Uranium One began purchasing mines in the United States, eventually purchasing 20% of America’s uranium deposits… In 2008, FBI Director Robert Muller, then serving under President George W. Bush, was informed of a bribery scam between Uranium One and Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, a Russian company that was well-connected to Russia’s military arsenal. Rosatom eventually purchased 17% of Uranium One with a plan to control the United States uranium market, further compromising America’s nuclear capabilities. The Clinton rabbit hole continued… An FBI informant named William Douglas Campbell was to testify that, in 2009, while Barack Obama was U.S. President, ‘Director Mueller “personally” delivered “a 10-gram sample of highly-enriched uranium to the Russian government,’ according to Conservative Daily Post. This bombshell was further corroborated by Wikileaks… In 2017, the United States Justice Department had dropped Campbell as a witness because they deemed him as ‘unreliable’. However, Campbell’s attorney, Victoria Toensing told Yahoo News that this was “a cover up” because the Obama Administration didn’t want to bring a big extortion case against Russia.”

A New Coronavirus Threat to Children – Here’s what we know about the mysterious and frightening ailment that doctors are seeing in a small but growing number of very young Covid-19 patients. – by Pam Belluck – – “Symptoms can include fever, rash, reddish eyes, swollen lymph nodes and sharp abdominal pain. They do not usually include two common hallmarks of Covid-19: cough and shortness of breath… And though shock is a rare complication of Kawasaki disease, the new syndrome has sent many of the children into a kind of toxic shock with very low blood pressure and an inability of the blood to effectively circulate oxygen and nutrients to the body’s organs, Dr. Kernie said… How do we know it’s related to the coronavirus?.. Many of the children who have become sick with the syndrome either tested positive for the coronavirus at the time of their symptoms, or had positive antibody tests suggesting they may have been infected weeks earlier. Dr. Schafer said it was possible that “this may be a post-infection condition and not necessarily part of the acute phase of Covid.” (emphasis added) – Comment: I hope that people understand that the PCR or antibody/antigen tests (of which there are, at this point, possibly dozens out there) ARE NOT SPECIFIC to any actually isolated or sequenced viral RNA sequence, but only test for “snippets” of RNA that can relate to previous exposure to MANY different viruses, or even to cellular activity (exosomes from native cells, etc.). So far, isolation of “Covid-19” (which multiple studies suggest has now undergone multiple mutations) has not been made evident by any published scientific papers at all. So what these children may be suffering from (and their trieatments, according to this article, include “steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, high-dose aspirin and antibiotics, as well as supportive oxygen through the nose, a mask or, in the most serious cases, a ventilator. It should be obvious to anyone not under the spell of the “Modern Medical Paradigm” that steroids, aspirin, as well (likely) as IV immunoglobulin are toxic and stressful to the system. The symptoms described in this article seem to focus on the type of hypoxia described by Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who risked his career to warn the world about the serious dangers to patients in New York hospitals from being placed on ventilators (particularly as the common medical protocols of first placing patients with low blood-oxygen on C-Pap or Bi-Pap therapy using masks, not intubation.

Coronavirus Live Updates: Top Health Officials to Quarantine After Being Exposed – Three children have died of a mysterious syndrome linked to the virus. Trump’s support among seniors slips as the pandemic becomes more political. – Three members of the coronavirus task force are beginning to quarantine after two White House staff members tested positive. – – “A virus ‘conspiracy’ video has gone viral,,, In a video posted to YouTube on Monday, a woman animatedly described an unsubstantiated secret plot by global elites like Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci to use the coronavirus pandemic to profit and grab political power… In the 26-minute video, the woman asserted how Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a leading voice on the coronavirus, had buried her research about how vaccines can damage people’s immune systems. It is those weakened immune systems, she declared, that have made people susceptible to illnesses like Covid-19… The video, a scene from a longer dubious documentary called “Plandemic,” was quickly seized upon by anti-vaccinators, the conspiracy group QAnon and activists from the Reopen America movement, generating more than eight million views. And it has turned the woman — Dr. Judy Mikovits, 62, a discredited scientist — into a new star of virus disinformation… Her ascent was powered not only by the YouTube video but also by a book that she published in April, “Plague of Corruption,” which frames Dr. Mikovits as a truth-teller fighting deception in science. In recent weeks, she has become a darling of far-right publications like The Epoch Times and The Gateway Pundit. Mentions of her on social media and television have spiked to as high as 14,000 a day, according to the media insights company Zignal Labs.”

Obama Trashes DOJ For Putting “The Rule Of Law” At Risk With Gen. Flynn – Turley Gives Him a Reality Check – by Erin Flockhart – – “Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley shut down former President Obama’s warning that the “rule of law is at risk” after the DOJ dropped charges against former national security adviser retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn… ‘The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,’ Obama was quoted saying Friday… ‘And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for somebody who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic, not just institutional norms, but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places,’ he said… Turley wrote on Twitter of Obama’s statement, ‘There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free’ was a ‘curious statement’ for several reasons.’.. ‘First, Flynn was not charged with perjury. Second, We now know Obama discussed charging Flynn under the Logan Act which has never been used successfully to convict anyone and is flagrantly unconstitutional,’ Turley wrote in a Twitter thread… Jonathan Turley, a self-proclaimed liberal who was a witness during the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, added also another point that Obama’s comment ‘reaffirms reports that Obama was personally invested in this effort.’ ” Comment: This article continues with proof that there are powerful precedents for the release of Gen. Flynn.

Tucker Carlson: Adam Schiff should resign (12 min) – “Rep. Adam Schiff and the entire apparatus of official Washington has been exposed by these transcripts, as well as by the documents just released in the Michael Flynn case.”

Schiff and Hoax Dems Sweating Bullets, Freaking Out as Trump Demands Justice! – by Laura Steinberg – – “President Donald Trump is rightfully demanding Justice. Adam Schiff belongs in jail, or worse. He’s totally freaking out because he knows it’s true. Democrats knew the whole Russia collusion witch-hunt was a hoax and the transcripts prove it. The president is already measuring Schiff up for a noose. “Nine inches around the neck,” he told members of congress. Schiff and his Deep State cronies are sweating bullets… A time of reckoning and ‘justice for all’: President Trump insists that if California Democrat Adam Schiff weren’t running loose “in the halls of Congress,” then he would “be in jail.” Not only is Schiff “a sick, sick man” but “he’s a corrupt politician.” He has been caught dead to rights intentionally hiding incriminating evidence from the public… This is a major political event and the public deserves to see real justice for a change. “This is a corrupt deal, and we caught them cold,” President Trump asserts.”

Yale Scientist: Reopening America Is ‘Awfully Close to Genocide’ – by Tom Ciccotta – – “Yale epidemiologist Gregg Gonsalves criticized the U.S. government’s response to the Chinese virus pandemic and its plan to reopen the country in a tweet that was published on Wednesday, suggesting that it would be “genocide by default” to lift “shelter in place” restrictions. Gonsalves also suggested that the government’s response would disproportionately impact “people of color.”.. ‘How many people will die this summer, before Election Day? What proportion of the deaths will be among African-Americans, Latinos, other people of color?’ Gonsalves wrote in the tweet. ‘This is getting awfully close to genocide by default. What else do you call mass death by public policy?’.. In another tweet, Gonsalves argued that government officials should face consequences for their response to the pandemic under international law. “So, what does it mean to let thousands die by negligence, omission, failure to act, in a legal sense under international law?” Gonsalves wrote in a follow-up tweet.”

Texas Supreme Court orders release of salon owner jailed for ignoring shutdown order – “The Texas Supreme Court on Thursday granted a motion to release Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther, who was sentenced to seven days in jail for defying orders to keep her business closed during the pandemic… The order came soon after Gov. Greg Abbott announced he was modifying his recent executive orders related to the coronavirus pandemic to eliminate jail time for Texans who violate the restrictions. The move by Abbott was an attempt to release Luther, and prevent the jailing of others who have violated similar orders in recent weeks… Luther, who state district Judge Eric Moyé found in contempt of court earlier this week, kept her Salon a la Mode running while violating stay-at-home orders and despite receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, as well as a temporary restraining order Moyé, a Democrat, signed that told Luther her business must remain closed.”

The Covid Shockdown Doctrine — and How to Beat It – by Julian Rose – – “Now ‘The Shock Doctrine’ is back with us again – with a vengeance. But this time it’s not just a national shock prescription, but a global one, executed on the concocted premise of a dangerous virus which is purported to have escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, at the turn of the year… The first move of this latest attempted grand heist has been to get around half the population locked-down in their own homes and induced into a state of fear paralysis. A formula that is activated by the ‘instructed’ mainstream media spreading a panic-warning of said virus spooking its way into all avenues of life and causing some form of untreatable sickness… The effectiveness of this fear-based indoctrination programme has been remarkable. A recent national opinion poll conducted in the UK suggests that more than 60% of the British public – believing what they are hearing and consequently suffering the Covid fear symptoms – do not want the lockdown measures to be lifted or even eased. This might be explained by the fact that the BBC – a masterful spreader of political disinformation – is regarded by many in the UK as ‘god’, followed closely by the Queen, on whose estate the Pirbright Institute is housed, a Coronavirus patent is officially registered and a Covid-19 vaccine is being developed.”

MIT Ridicules Critics Of Technocrat Coup d’état – by Patrick Wood – – The masterful and carefully constructed lead paragraph in MIT’s Technology Review article Five things we need to do to make contact tracing really work states, ‘The ongoing pandemic is fertile ground for opportunistic hucksters, loud frauds, and coronavirus deniers who attack or blame everyone and everything from Chinese-Americans to Bill Gates to 5G networks. The latest front in this bizarre war: contact tracing.’.. You can see the clever use of words to conclude that anyone who would dare to criticize ‘contact tracing’ is thrown in with ‘opportunistic hucksters, loud frauds and coronavirus deniers’… MIT, on the other hand, positions itself as being in the “reasonable center”, doing responsible things in the name of solving a problem that must be solved. What does MIT recommend?: ● Task 1: Hire 100,000 manual tracers; ● Task 2: Protect privacy; ● Task 3: Ensure that tracing covers as many people as possible; ● Task 4: Accept that technology alone cannot solve this problem; ● Task 5. And do it all, now.”

Not a Single COVID-19 Test is FDA Approved – Do We Really Know Who has COVID-19 and Who Does Not? – by Brian Shilhavy – – “We are witnessing one of the most extraordinary events in human history, and certainly the most far-reaching and impactful event in all of our lifetimes, because of the effects of what we are being told is a single coronavirus… Here at Health Impact News, as always, we have endeavored to publish the truth about this pandemic, even if the truth is not popular or censored in the corporate-funded “mainstream” media… This article being published today, on May 5, 2020, might be the most significant article about COVID-19 that we have published on the topic to date… The rationale for the extraordinary events we are seeing today all come down to one dataset: the amount of people infected with this coronavirus, and the rate at which people are dying from it… This can only be justified by one simple fact: that we know how to identify and test for this single virus… If this single fact cannot be proven, or if it is proven to be false, and we really do not have the means to accurately test for this virus, then everything that has transpired as a direct result of trusting the data that this test is based upon, has been built on a faulty foundation that does not exist… Does this sound like a conspiracy theory? Because if you dare to ask the question, that is what you will be accused of for daring to question the accuracy of the tests, and therefore the accuracy of the data that these tests allegedly prove… So let’s start with the facts that most everyone agrees upon, or that can be easily verified.”

from the Rust-Never-Sleeps Desk: How Tech is Helping Local Leaders Rebuild During COVID-19 – by George Burciaga – – “This pandemic has revealed weaknesses in our local government infrastructure disrupting our ability to work, learn, and recover. We have an opportunity to rebuild how we deliver access, and doing so, our wireless services to provide connectivity to every family… While people are sheltered, it’s time to start deploying smart infrastructure engineered to advance public Wi-Fi, safety, transit and achieve social equity and sustainability. Before we install another red-light camera, we should ensure that our families have what they need to thrive… Our response is not about small calculated projects – it’s about delivering a strategic plan that reshapes our future. Now is the time for us to seize this moment to think bigger and to rebuild in a way that is inclusive, connected, and more equitable than ever before. #InThisTogether”

Gates Admits 700,000 People May Die from his Vaccine – by Martin Armstrong – – “Personally, I think Gates has just proven he is a psychopath. He just admitted that 700,000 people would (could) die from his vaccine and that’s OK, its collateral damage I suppose… I do not think 700,000 people should sacrifice their lives for Bill Gates and what kind of person would even demand the entire world be vaccinated? This seems to me to be more of an effort to be exonerated from any liability, a complete denial of human and civil rights to FORCE people to be vaccinated, by a man who has no medical background and whose body language of always waving his hands in the air appears to me as hiding the truth behind his scheme.”

US Mercenaries Arrested In Venezuela Tweeted To Confirm Operation With Donald Trump – “Immediately after Venezuelan authorities arrested a group of mercenaries, reports began circulating that two of them – Luke Alexander Denman and Aaron Barry were actually part of Silvercorp USA, and both of them provided security for US President Donald Trump… On top of it all, to add insult to injury, a journalist from RT reported on it, and the Silvercorp Twitter account responded saying that ‘mercenaries get paid to rid the world of Maduro shills like you.’.. However, to make things even more ridiculous – Silvercorp on May 3rd, tweeted that they were carrying out an incursion into Venezuela with 60 individuals, and tagged Donald Trump in the tweet… In a state TV appearance, Maduro said that the two Americans arrested outside Caracas were “professional mercenaries” named Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who carried ID cards for a Florida-based security contractor called Silvercorp… In a state TV appearance, Maduro said that the two Americans arrested outside Caracas were “professional mercenaries” named Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who carried ID cards for a Florida-based security contractor called Silvercorp.

If We Want to Return to Normal, We Have to Fix the Policy – by Mike Whitney – – “So the ultimate goal of our policy should be to get back to normal, to restore the life we had before the masks, the gloves, the daily briefings, the self isolation, the social distancing, the daily death toll, the shutting down of the economy, the deluge of unemployment claims, the destruction of small and mid-sized businesses, the trillions dollars of additional red ink, and the abrupt termination of all normal interaction with our friends, our neighbors and our families. That’s what the aim of our policy should be, to get back to normal… But that’s the problem, our current (lockdown) policy doesn’t do that. It doesn’t put us on a path for achieving our objectives. Take a look at this article at The Hill and you’ll see what I mean…”

Eric Schmidt and Bill Gates are being asked to “reimagine” New York. Not everybody loves that. – by Theodore Schleifer – – “Gov. Andrew Cuomo is leaning on tech billionaires to rebuild New York after the coronavirus — a reminder of how the mega-rich are consolidating their power and expanding their influence even as they offer to help respond to the pandemic… Cuomo has tapped Bill Gates’s foundation and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt to “reimagine” New York’s economy, health care system, and school system, the governor said in back-to-back briefings on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been chosen to “revolutionize” online learning for the fall and was asked by Cuomo on Tuesday to develop a “blueprint” for how to do so… And on Wednesday, Cuomo invited Schmidt to appear at his closely watched daily news conference, where Schmidt said he would focus on telehealth, remote learning, and broadband access as the chair of a new commission focused on organizing New York’s economy more around technology… The appointments will undoubtedly give the two tech billionaires substantial influence in shaping what New York looks like a year from now.”

National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan – “Testing is our way out of this crisis. Instead of ricocheting between an unsustainable shutdown and a dangerous, uncertain return to normalcy, the United States must mount a sustainable strategy with better tests and contact tracing, and stay the course for as long as it takes to develop a vaccine or cure. Any plan to do so must win the faith of private and public sector leaders across the country, and of individual Americans that they and their loved ones will be safer when we begin to return to daily life… The Rockefeller Foundation exists to meet moments like this. In the past two weeks we have brought together experts and leaders from science, industry, academia, public policy, and government – across sectors and political ideologies – to create a clear, pragmatic, data-driven, actionable plan to beat back Covid-19 and get Americans back to work more safely.” (emphasis added)

Trump Vetoes “Insulting” Iran War Powers Resolution – “Trump called it a “very insulting resolution” and argued the measure was “based on misunderstandings of facts and law” in a statement… ‘This indefinite prohibition is unnecessary and dangerous,’ the White House said in a separate message to the Senate… Trump in his statement claimed the resolution was ‘introduced by Democrats as part of a strategy to win an election on November 3 by dividing the Republican Party.’.. He claimed the strike against Soleimani ‘was fully authorized by law, including the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 and Article II of the Constitution.’.. The resolution called for ‘the President to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces for hostilities against the Islamic Republic of Iran or any part of its government or military, unless explicitly authorized by a declaration of war or specific authorization for use of military force against Iran.’

UN Chief Says Pandemic Must Be Used To Deindustrialize West, Transition To Green Energy – ‘We have a rare and short window of opportunity to rebuild our world for the better,’ he says – by Jamie White – – ” ‘It has exposed the fragility of our societies and economies to shocks,’ Guterres said Tuesday, adding that ‘the only answer is brave, visionary and collaborative leadership.’

A New Frustrated Chapter in the Violent War Against Venezuela – “In the early morning of May 3, there was a thwarted mercenary raid on the coast of Macuto, in the state of La Guaira. Interior, Justice, and Peace Minister Néstor Reverol reported that the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB) together with the Special Action Forces (FAES) of the Bolivarian National Police countered an invasion by “sea” on the coast by non-state actors, officially called “Operation Negro Primero”… The Venezuelan authorities reportedly killed nine mercenaries and detained two others, who were part of what they called “Operation Gideon”… Minister Reverol reported “that the operation is continuing and other arrests are not ruled out as a thorough search is being made by land, sea, and air… Cabello repeated this to the press at the Federal Legislative Palace, adding that one of the subjects arrested in the early hours of the morning confessed to being a drug trafficker, an agent of the DEA, the United States’ anti-drug agency, and added: ‘It is sad that those who call themselves Venezuelans are financed by drug trafficking, by drug money’… What is certain is that some of the weapons and electronic equipment seized in this operation coincide with the models used in last year’s incident, on April 30, 2019, when some defectors from the FANB and mercenaries took over the Altamira distribution center in Caracas in a failed attempt to overthrow the government of President Nicolás Maduro in order to place Juan Guaidó, the man chosen by Donald Trump’s administration, in power.”

Two Syrian Planes Downed by Turkey Over Idlib, Pilots Safe – Reports–reports/ – “SANA did not clarify whether the planes were hit by Turkish forces, or by Turkish-backed militants, with the attackers described only as the “Turkish regime’s terrorist forces.” Earlier, unconfirmed pro-Turkish sources reported that the planes may have been downed by Turkish F-16s… Later in the day, a source in the Syrian Defence Ministry told Sputnik that Turkish F-16s had violated Syrian airspace on two occasions Sunday. The source confirmed that the Turkish planes shot down two Syrian aircraft. The source also indicated that the pilots managed to successfully eject, and that they were now safe.”

ROSE / ICKE III THE LIVESTREAM: MAY 3, 2020 (3 hours) – – “On May 3, 2020, David Icke went LIVE on the DIGITAL FREEDOM PLATFORM for the largest LIVESTREAM of a conversation in human history. This single broadcast could change the course of humanity.”

Will Coronavirus Mutations Delay COVID-19 Vaccines? – by Kate Raines – – “A ‘Significant’ COVID-19 Mutation Identified: Nevertheless, several mutations have already been reported. By mid-April, researchers from the University of Cambridge mapping how the virus has spread from the epicenter in Wuhan, China, stated the virus has mutated into three distinct strains. The first is “Strain A,” thought to be the original strain found in Wuhan; the second is “Strain B,” two mutations from A and responsible for most of the cases in Wuhan and East Asia; and the third is “Strain C,” offshoot of B and the strain responsible for most of the infections in Europe… In April, researchers in Australia and Taiwan also published an article analyzing the mutation dynamics of SARS CoV-2 and found a mutant, stating, ‘This represents the first report of a significant SARS-CoV-2 mutant and raises the alarm that the ongoing vaccine development may become futile in future epidemic if more mutations were identified.’ ”

GSK and Sanofi COVID-19 Vaccine Produced in Insect Cells with Squalene Adjuvant – by Barbara Loe Fisher and Rishma Parpia- – “GSK and Sanofi are developing the COVID-19 vaccine in collaboration with and $30M in funding from the U.S. government’s Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA)2 under the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. The experimental coronoavirus vaccine will combine GSK’s proprietary squalene-based vaccine adjuvant AS03 used in the company’s H1N1 influenza vaccine Pandemrix, with the insect cell-based recombinant DNA vaccine technology that Sanofi Pasteur currently uses to make their inactivated quadrivalent influenza vaccine, FluBlok… According to Scrip Informa Pharma Intelligence, the business partnership between the two experienced vaccine manufacturers utilizing already licensed technology to create a COVID-19 vaccine could place them in front of companies seeking approval for experimental mRNA and DNA technology not yet licensed… Goal to Manufacture 600 Million Doses By 2021: Sanofi and GSK with their combined manufacturing capacity are hoping to produce up to 600 million doses of their new coronavirus vaccine by 2021.32 Clinical trials are scheduled to begin in the second half of 2020 and, if trial results are positive, the companies plan to make the vaccine available to the public by the second half of 2021.”

79% of the COVID-19 Positive Deaths in Canada Have Been of Nursing Home Residents – “To isolate those not at risk and to NOT isolate those at risk is a human catastrophe” -Dr. Knut Wittkowski – by Until there is a treatment or vaccine, life won’t go back to normal,’ Dr. Tam said. What’s clear, she said, is Canadians will be living with the virus for a “significant number of months” and mass gatherings are off the table for the foreseeable future… Numbers released on Tuesday show a steep jump from two weeks ago, when almost half of all coronavirus deaths were linked to the homes. The numbers also show the death rate for the disease at 5.5 per cent, more than double the 2.2 per cent on April 9… The numbers were released by Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam and her deputy, Dr. Howard Njoo, along with updated short- and long-term projections for the pandemic. By May 5, the models show that the total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Canada could rise to between 3,277 and 3,883, with a 95-per-cent probability… “As the epidemic comes under control and the growth of cases slows, the severe outcomes and deaths continue to accrue as COVID-19 takes a heavy toll among highly susceptible populations,” Dr. Tam said at a press conference… This passage describes the absurdity succinctly: ‘So far, the federal officials believe Canada is staying within the most optimistic scenario where no more than 10 per cent of people become infected in the first wave of the pandemic. However, if the first wave of the disease has a low infection rate, continuing physical distancing measures will be all the more important, as few people will have immunity.’

Trump Administration Models Predict Near Doubling of Daily Death Toll by June – “As President Trump presses for states to reopen their economies, his administration is privately projecting a steady rise in the number of cases and deaths from the coronavirus over the next several weeks, reaching about 3,000 daily deaths on June 1, according to an internal document obtained by The New York Times, nearly double from the current level of about 1,750… The projections, based on government modeling pulled together in chart form by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, forecast about 200,000 new cases each day by the end of the month, up from about 25,000 cases now… The White House responded that the new projections had not been vetted… ‘This is not a White House document nor has it been presented to the Coronavirus Task Force or gone through interagency vetting,’ said Judd Deere, a White House spokesman. ‘This data is not reflective of any of the modeling done by the task force or data that the task force has analyzed.’.. Mr. Gottlieb said Americans ‘may be facing the prospect that 20,000, 30,000 new cases a day diagnosed becomes the new normal.’ ” – Comment: An earlier version of this article attributed the “government modelling” to the CDC, but the NY Times edited this out.

UN WHO file titled “Global Vaccine Market Features and Trends” exposes the true dual purpose of eugenics vaccines. Profiteering ($100 billion marketing goal) from Vatican UN/WHO genocide… The file provides incriminating evidence and financial motive for Vatican UN WHO criminal acts of terrorism, bioterrorism, mass murder and genocide. The Crown (corporate entity for the reigning Pope) created UN (formed to build Vatican Fourth Reich/NWO) and WHO (formed to continue Vatican Nazi Third Reich Eugenics program) intentionally disseminate viruses (Ebola, E. Coli, Meningitis, Polio) in sparsely populated areas (controlled groups) to terrorize (exploit human fear) the World into getting vaccinated and sick. Terrorism is used by the UN and WHO to intentionally create fear and trick billions of people into being sterilized and poisoned by UN WHO marketed “ethnic” bioweapon vaccines… There are an estimated 7 billion people living on Earth today. In order for the Vatican and the Pope (the Crown) to profit and acquire the $100 billion projected marketing goal stated in the UN WHO “Global Vaccine Market Features and Trends” file, every person on Earth would have to be vaccinated.”

A Vital Paper: David Crowe challenges the discovery of the COVID-19 virus – by Jon Rappoport – – ” ‘Reference [1] did publish electron [microscope] micrographs, but it can clearly be seen in the lesser magnified photo, that the particles believed to be coronavirus are not purified as the quantity of material that is cellular is much greater. The paper notes that the photos are from ‘human airway epithelial cells’. Also consider that the photo included in the article will certainly be the ‘best’ photo, i.e. the one with the greatest number of particles. Lab technicians may be encouraged to spend hours to look around to find the most photogenic image, the one that most looks like pure virus.’.. ‘There is no way to tell that the RNA being used in the new coronavirus PCR test is found in those particles seen under the electron micrograph. There is no connection between the test, and the particles, and no proof that the particles are viral.’ ”

The Models, the Tests and Now the Consequences – by F. William Engdahl – – “Two major models are being used in the West since the alleged spread of coronavirus to Europe and USA to “predict” and respond to the spread of COVID-19 illness. One was developed at Imperial College of London. The second was developed, with emphasis on USA effects, by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in Seattle, near the home of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. What few know is that both groups owe their existence to generous funding by a tax exempt foundation that stands to make literally billions on purported vaccines and other drugs to treat coronavirus—The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation… Californian physician Dr. Dan Erickson described his observations regarding Covid19 in a press briefing. He stated that hospitals and intensive care units in California and other states have remained largely empty so far. Dr. Erickson reports that doctors from several US states have been “pressured“ to issue death certificates mentioning Covid19, even though they themselves did not agree. In Pennsylvania the state was forced to remove some 200 “coronavirus” deaths after doctor autopsy revealed death from pre-existing causes such as heart or lung diseases… The more that actual facts are emerging around this pandemic and its consequences, it is becoming clear were are being told to commit economic and social suicide based on wrong methods and wrong information.”

A Protest From France: “Rule By Experts” Is A Grave Error – Authored by Jörg Guido Hülsmann – – “My protest concerns the basic ideas that have motivated these policies. They were clearly enunciated by President Macron in his TV address of March 12. Here he made three claims that I found most intriguing... Now, these are not the private ideas of Monsieur Macron. They are shared by all major governments in the EU and by many governments in other parts of the world. They are also shared by all major political parties here in France, as well as by President Macron’s predecessors. Therefore, the purpose of the following remarks is not to criticise the president of this beautiful country, or his government, or any person in particular. The purpose is to criticise the ideas on which the current policy is based… The greatest danger right now is in the perpetuation of the ill-conceived lockdowns, most notably under the pretext of “managing the transition” or other spurious justifications. Is it really necessary to walk through the endless list of management failures of government agents? Is it necessary to remind ourselves that people who have no skin in the game are irresponsible in the true sense of the word? These would-be managers should have stayed out of the picture from the very beginning. Instead, so far, they have managed to get everybody else out of the picture. If they are allowed to go on, they might very well turn the present calamity—big as it is—into a true disaster.”

77 Brigade: Is British Military Waging an Information War on Its Own Population? – by Mike Robinson of the UK Column – – “Last Wednesday, during the daily UK Government Coronavirus livestream, the head of the British Army, General Sir Nick Carter, bragged: ‘We’ve been involved with the Cabinet Office Rapid Response Unit, with our 77th Brigade helping to quash rumours from misinformation, but also to counter disinformation. Between three and four thousand of our people have been involved, with around twenty thousand available the whole time at high readiness.’.. To understand the implications of this statement, we have to go back to 2018, when Carter gave a speech to the Royal United Services Institute… ‘In our 77th Brigade,’ he said, ‘… we have got some remarkable talent when it comes to social media, production design, and indeed Arabic poetry. Those sorts of skills we can’t afford to retain in the Regular component but they are the means of us delivering capability in a much more imaginative way than we might have been able to do in the past.’ ”

Beware the Contact Tracers (30 min)- by Amazing Polly

New Zealand Government Bans Online Book Purchases as ‘Non-Essential’ – “Books are essential in lockdown, but the New Zealand government doesn’t think so. Under the onerous orders of Jacinda Ardern, a leader praised for her ability to lead the country through this global struggle under the auspices of “sympathy, love, and integrity” according to The Guardian, New Zealand has banned the sale of books as non-essential items… Instead, the premier advises New Zealanders to keep a diary to help with contact tracing, as if they don’t have enough on their minds already that they need to log their every move and rack their brains with anxiety with fears that they might be infected, or worse—infected someone they care about.” (emphasis added)

North Korea Extends COVID-19 National Emergency to End of Year – “North Korea has extended its COVID-19 national emergency to the end of the year in anticipation that the global pandemic will continue, raising concerns among residents that keeping the border with China closed will deal a serious blow to the economy… “On the 23rd, the Central Party ordered the provincial quarantine command to extend the national emergency quarantine posture through the end of the year,” a senior official in North Pyongan province, who requested anonymity due to fear of reprisal, told RFA’s Korean Service on April 26… ‘[They] ordered stronger quarantine measures in response to the prolonged outbreak,’ the source said.”

The Dengvaxia Disaster Was Twenty Years in the Making—What Will Happen With a Rushed COVID-19 Vaccine? – by Lyn Redwood – – “Dengue fever is a common disease in more that 120 countries and, like Coronavirus, has been the target for a vaccine for many years. The development and licensure of Dengvaxia® vaccine by Sanofi spanned more than 20 years and cost more than 1.5 billion U.S. dollars. But the development of the vaccine turned out to be tricky. Dengue vaccine antibodies can also make the infection worse, especially in infants and children who have never been exposed to the virus. The virus may actually use the antibodies created by the vaccine to spread the virus throughout the body. So an infection with dengue — when your blood already has antibodies in it — can actually enhance the disease resulting in deadly complications… Despite the fact that Sanofi tested Dengvaxia in several large clinical trials with more than 30,000 kids globally and published the results in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, there were serious problems. According to epidemiologists who reviewed the data, the trials were riddled with “small inaccur­acies, missing data, and uncalculated risks.” Buried in those clinical trials was a disease enhancement safety signal, but industry and the World Health Organization (WHO) turned a blind eye to the problem, calling it a “theoretical possibility.” Dengvaxia was subsequently admini­ster­ed to thousands of children in the Philippines. It was reported last year that the deaths of approximately 600 children who received the vaccine are under investigation by the Public Attorney’s Office. The vaccine has been permanently banned in the country.”

UNMASKING THE LIES AROUND COVID-19: FACTS VS FICTION OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC – Interview with Dr. Andrew Kaufman by Brian Rose –– “Dr. Andrew Kaufman is an American natural healing consultant, inventor, expert witness and forensic psychiatrist who has been powerfully outspoken throughout the pandemic… Speaking counter to the mainstream media, Dr. Kaufman has stated that a virus is not causing a new disease, there is no evidence of increased mortality and modern medicine is the leading cause of death… Having studied at M.I.T, Duke and the Medical University of South Carolina, he has published original research and lectured, supervised, and mentored medical students in all psychiatric specialties. His knowledge and experience has qualified you as an expert witness in local, state, and federal courts.”

Yes, the UK’s weekly death toll during Covid-19 is high. But it’s been worse in the past and we didn’t shut down the economy then – by Peter Andrews – – “The death statistics being used by supporters of a prolonged lockdown, whatever the costs to our jobs, businesses and health, need careful and sober analysis. They raise more questions than they answer… Coronavirus is being touted as the worst pandemic of modern times, and we are told that excess deaths are reaching record highs. While technically accurate, one week’s statistics demonstrate that this is not the whole picture… Sky TV economics editor Ed Conway recently produced a chart entitled: ‘The Worst Week Ever? Not quite, but not far off’.’ He is referring to the fact that the total number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending April 10 -–18,516 deaths – remains lower than some weeks in previous flu seasons. These weeks include those in January 1970 (20,006 deaths), December 1989 (19,104 deaths) and January 2000 (18,646 deaths)… Conway rightly points out that those previous highs came at the peak of those years’ flu seasons, and we are now in April. Conway claims that there has never been a week at this time of year as deadly as this. He may be right, but weekly figures from the Office of National Statistics only go back to 1970…”Yes, the UK’s weekly death toll during Covid-19 is high. But it’s been worse in the past and we didn’t shut down the economy then…”

The Far-Reaching Realms of Denisovan Ancestry Stretch to Iceland – by Andrew Collins – – “This week it was announced that a new genetic study published in the journal Nature shows that the genomes of over 27,000 Icelanders display an admixture of modern human and Neanderthal DNA, along with a noticeable trace of Denisovan ancestry that was not expected at all. These findings suggest that past introgression took place between the direct ancestors of Icelanders, most obviously archaic Norwegians, and either Neanderthals carrying Denisovan DNA or Neanderthals and Denisovans separately. Similar results have not been noted in modern-day Scandinavians, either due to insufficient study of their genomes, or the fact that any residual Denisovan DNA has been diluted through interbreeding with other European groups with no traceable Denisovan ancestry.

From the “Unmitigated”-Balderdash Desk: Turkey Pledges Support to US in Fight Against COVID-19 – ” ‘As a reliable and strong partner of the U.S., we will continue to demonstrate solidarity in every way possible in meeting the present needs required for the struggle against this pandemic as well as during the upcoming recovery phase,’ Erdogan said in a letter sent to his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.”

Re-Engineering Society: Technocrats Rule, Politicians Drool – by Patrick Wood – – “As the pandemic winds down, the U.S. economic system is about to spring back to life. So, it’s back to business as usual, right?.. Wrong!.. Thanks to ignorant politicians, Technocrats have skillfully used the coronavirus panic to wedge themselves between citizens and their duly-elected representative government leaders… Having dictated policies that resulted in the shuttering of the entire global economic system, a feat of epic magnitude, Technocrats are now refusing to step away and simply let the world return to normal… The Washington Post revealed a portion of a document leaked from the Center for Disease Control, which is ‘finalizing expanded guidelines to allow the phased reopening of child care programs, schools and day camps, communities of faith, employers with vulnerable workers, restaurants and bars, and mass transit administrators.’.. If you think that life was grim under total shutdown, just wait until you try to start up again. (Read the document here.).. First, the CDC calls for a three-phased plan. For Interim Guidance for Restaurants and Bars, for instance, the “guidance” will be:…”

US occupation transport another batch of Daesh terrorists from Hasaka to Iraq – “The local sources told SANA’s reporter that 6 vehicles belonging to the US occupation forces entered al-Shadadi on Monday morning, coming from the Syrian-Iraqi borders to the east, and after a few hours they left the city accompanied by choppers, heading east towards Iraq with a number of Daesh terrorists on board.”

Bill Gates: Phase 2 is a Bio Terror Attack (9 min) – by Spiro Skouras – Another Must See contribution from Spiro’s Corona Pandemic research

California’s plans to build an army of 10,000 people that can trace the trail of the coronavirus exposure could serve as a template for the nation and create a whole new sector of public health workers.

San Francisco this week is deploying its first group of about 50 volunteer contact tracers, many with no health care background — such as city librarians, attorneys and investigators. Officials elsewhere are watching the approach developed by University of California, San Francisco researchers with the hopes that they can scale it up quickly with workers from nonhealth sectors to meet the needs this unprecedented pandemic.

Dr. Rashid Buttar THE CORONAVIRUS AGENDA – WHAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW (2hr 19min) – – Another important presentation from Dr. Buttar with his alternative perspective on the “pandemic crisis.” – This interview with Brian Rose was prevented from being streamed live on the new London Real platform by a major denial of service attack.

Third Major Transfer From the Middle Class to the Wealthy – by Mike (Mish) Shedlock – – “For the third time in 20 years, the Fed has targeted the middle class for the benefit of the wealthy… Don’t believe Fed lies. Its bailout of risky debt including junk bonds helps investors, not employees… Once again, the Fed Punishes Prudence: ‘The Fed will deploy more than $1.45 trillion in support of investors in leveraged assets—more than double the size of the 2008 Troubled Asset Relief Program, and over $7,000 for each working-age American. That includes $750 billion to purchase recently downgraded junk bonds and bond exchange-traded funds—an unprecedented intervention in the private credit markets… ‘Pumping trillions of dollars into corporate credit and even high-yield debt will further distort markets already shaped by a decade of easy-money policies. This is no abstract concern. The result will be an acceleration of two economy-wide transfers of wealth: from the middle class to the affluent and from the cautious to the reckless… ‘The transfer from the middle class to the wealthy continues a trend begun in the wake of the 2007-09 financial crisis… ‘But bankruptcies among highly leveraged businesses often pose surprisingly little risk to employment. More often than not, creditors choose to keep businesses staffed even when restructuring to retain value for the long-term. By preventing these bankruptcies, the Fed is doing more for equity holders and junior creditors than for employees.’ ”

Pelosi Tries To Sneak Universal Basic Income In New Relief Bill, Gets Torched – by Alex Stevens – – “As Congress weighs another relief package amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic which has many small businesses closed until stay-at-home orders are lifted, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) floated out the possibility of universal basic income… Pelosi said on “MSNBC Live” a minimum guaranteed income is “perhaps” now “worthy” of getting looked at being added into the next funding package… ‘[A]s we go forward, let’s see what works,’ Pelosi outlined. ‘What is operational, and what needs other attention? Others have suggested a minimum … guaranteed income for people. Is that worthy of attention now? Perhaps so because there are many more people than just in small business and hired by small businesses as important as that is to the vitality of our economy and other people who are not in the public sector meeting our needs in so many ways that may need some assistance as well.’.. ‘But again, recognize the realities of it all,’ Pelosi added. ‘What is the execution of it? What is working? And … what are we getting our money’s worth on? I think we have to look at that, too. How is the money being spent? With all the best intentions in the world, but nonetheless, we want the money to go where it needs.’ ”

Assange’s Extradition Hearing Will Be Postponed Until November – “The ruling comes after the WikiLeaks founder’s lawyers argued that they have not been able to access their client amid COVID-19-related restrictions. Lawyers representing the United States government said they would agree to the postponement if it was deemed necessary.”

Susan Sarandon Bucks Hollywood, Shows Support for Biden Accuser Tara Reade – Liberal actress expresses support over sexual assault allegation again ex-vice president – by: Jay Greenberg – – “Earlier on Monday, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined the rest of her colleagues by endorsing Biden’s presidential campaign while refusing to acknowledge Reade’s claims. Meanwhile, the media has been tirelessly working to cover for the ex-VP. Though undeniably far-left, Sarandon has now publicly expressed support for Reade. The actress famously became a pariah in left-wing circles after refusing to endorse Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House in 2016.”

YouTube and Twitter Censor Medical Center After NYT Journalist Complains – by Mike Santorini – – “Youtube and Twitter have both taken action against a medical center after a New York Times journalist complained that their content bolstered President Trump’s claims about UV rays… How we got here: The non-profit Cedars-Sinai Medical Center partnered earlier this month with Aytu BioScience, a pharmaceutical company, to develop the Healight Platform Technology… Dr. Ruchi Mathur of Cedars-Sinai shared the news on Twitter on April 20, writing: “We’ve already shown that the Healight kills bacteria. Now we show that it can also kill coronavirus.” The post links to an article from Yahoo News, which said the technology ” is being studied as a potential first-in-class treatment for coronavirus and other respiratory infections… But NYT technology reporter Davey Alba tweeted on April 25 that she had reached out to YouTube to report the video promoting the Healight Platform Technology that was published by Aytu BioScience. She said she reported it because Twitter and Facebook users were citing the technology to support President Trump’s claim that ‘UV rays kill coronavirus.’ ”

Harvard Law Professor Calls for Ban on Homeschooling While Everyone is Forced to do it – by Brian Shilhavy – – “At a time when schools all across the nation are closed, with many parents of school-aged children also out of work and families confined to their homes during a nationwide lock down that is undoubtedly causing much stress, and forcing families to homeschool even if they have never done it before, Elizabeth Bartholet has come out publicly and called for a ban on homeschooling, stating: ‘The issue is, do we think that parents should have 24/7, essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18? I think that’s dangerous. I think it’s always dangerous to put powerful people in charge of the powerless, and to give the powerful ones total authority.’ (Source.).. Her comments were published in the Arizona Law Review… Bartholet believes children are best educated in schools, where teachers are “mandated reporters” and can report suspected child abuse to local Child Protective Services (CPS).” (emphasis added)Comment: Ms Bartholet’s statements are beyond ironic.

Market Update: The Battle For Control – Which side will prevail in the markets going forward? Reality or rescue? – by Adam Taggart – – “As more data pours in showing the severe and worsening contraction of the global economy due to the impact of covid-19, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the only thing propping up today’s financial markets is the $trillions in rescue stimulus promised by governments across the globe… Bloomberg estimates that flood to be in the range of $8 trillion — and counting… Will it be enough?.. Time will tell. But, for now, it has been enough to keep the markets elevated. As reported last week, the FAANG stock complex is back at an all-time high… Here at, we’ve long been critical of central banks’ upward influence on the financial markets, which prior to covid-19, distorted asset prices far higher than fundamentals justified and created accelerating inequity between the rich and the rest of society… Those issues are now exacerbated by the abovementioned new $8 trillion, though there’s an important twist this time. The problems the central planners are trying to address aren’t easily solved by simply forcing liquidity into the system… The world is experiencing one of the worst demand shocks in history. In America, more than 26 million workers have lost their jobs over just the past 5 weeks…”

WATCH: Hundreds Attend Chicago House Party During Coronavirus Pandemic – by Mike Santorini – – “The video, which went viral with tens of thousands of shares and nearly a million views, shows a crowded house of partygoers with barely enough space to move and only a few people wearing face masks. All people seen in the clip are in violation of the city’s social distancing guidelines… The Chicago Police Department say they’re not certain of the precise location where the party occurred but concerned citizens said it took place on the West Side… In response, the department released the following statement on Saturday: ‘We are aware of a video circulating on social media depicting a large house party inside of an alleged Chicago residence. While we cannot authenticate the nature or location of the gathering, we want to remind everyone of the social distancing requirements in place. CPD will disperse crowds in violation of social distancing requirements, and if necessary, issue citations or as a last resort, enforce via arrest.’ ”

From the Official-Global-State-Propaganda Desk: ‘No evidence’ that recovered COVID-19 patients cannot be reinfected, says WHO – “In a scientific brief issued on Friday, the UN health agency said there was no proof that one-time infection could lead to immunity, and ‘laboratory tests that detect antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 [the virus that causes COVID-19] in people…need further validation to determine their accuracy and reliability… ‘Some governments have suggested that the detection of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could serve as the basis for an ‘immunity passport’ or ‘risk-free certificate’ that would enable individuals to travel or to return to work assuming that they are protected against re-infection,’ said WHO, adding: ‘There is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection.’ ”

For the Week of 4/20/20:

U.S. Bill Eliminates Environmental Review for All “Communications Facilities”– by B.N. Frank – – “An industry friendly bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives that says the FCC does not need to perform any environmental review for 5G and cell antenna deployment under the National Environmental Policy Act… The bill, HR 6488, will undo last year’s historic ruling that vacated the FCC’s decision to do away with NEPA review of small cell deployments. Representative John Shimkus of Illinois introduced the bill which has now been referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and in addition to the Committee on Natural Resources… This bill would directly reverse the August 2019 decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit which halted the efforts of the Federal Communications Commission to expedite the deployment of 5G technology.”

Pandemic And Economic Collapse: The Next 60 Days – by Brandon Smith – – “First and foremost, the lockdown issue is on almost everyone’s mind, and as I’ve been saying for the past month, it would not take long before people start freaking out about their financial prospects once they realize this thing may not be over “in two weeks” as we keep hearing every two weeks from the mainstream media, state governments and Donald Trump. The “two weeks until reopen” mantra is designed to keep the public placated and docile, and the establishment will continue to use it until people are finally fed up, which is already beginning to happen… Lockdown protests are sparking up across the country and it’s only going to get worse from now on. Understand though that establishment elites probably expected this, especially in the US, and they are planning to use civil unrest to their advantage… Do not be surprised if some areas of the country do indeed “reopen” next month, but expect these locations to be primarily rural. Do NOT count on first and second tier cities to reopen, at least nowhere near the activity that they had previous to the viral outbreak. In fact, while rural towns try to go back to normalcy, many major cities will probably double down and increase restrictions rather than loosen them… Why do I think this will happen? I’ve noticed an odd narrative being pushed in the mainstream media lately that has me concerned. The MSM is aggressively promoting the notion that rural states and counties are about to be crushed by the coronavirus, and looser restrictions in these places are “a danger to everyone”.”

CV-1984: China Rolls Out Test Of Digital Currency In Four Cities, Western Businesses Testing – by Aaron Kesel – – “China’s central bank The People’s Bank Of China, began testing its new digital Yuan’s interface on April 14th with one of its largest banks, the Agricultural Bank of China, rolling out a test UI. Two weeks later, there are reports that a pilot has been launched. Nineteen restaurants and retail establishments including popular Western restaurant chains like Starbucks, McDonald’s and Subway are participating in the test, reported. The test run is taking place in at least four cities in China—Shenzhen, Suzhou, Chengdu and Xiong’an, according to China’s central bank which confirmed the test of its new digital Yuan officially called “Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP)” to the Wall Street Journal… That’s not all, China also launched its Blockchain Service Network (BSN) for domestic and global commercial use. China also announced a 71-person committee for its Blockchain which includes executives from China’s central bank, as well as tech giants Baidu and Tencent, according to an announcement from the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT.).. Last year, Max Keiser of the Keiser Report told Kitco News that China was backing the new digital Yuan with gold.”

“The Ripple-Effects Of The Government Lockdown Are Only Starting To Take Shape…” – David Stockman on the Real Reason Why the Government Shutdown Caused an Economic Collapse – Via Doug Casey’s – – “International Man: Is the government’s reaction to COVID-19 worse than the virus itself? What are your thoughts?.. David Stockman: I think for once, Donald Trump was right when he worried out loud the other day that the cure may be far worse than the disease… Governors – mostly Democratic governors and mayors of major areas of the country – have imposed Lockdown Nation. It’s a complete economic disaster… It’s a wrong policy from a public health point of view and an economic point of view… It is hitting, like a ton of bricks, a highly fragile and vulnerable economy that was living hand to mouth anyway because of the kind of highly counterproductive monetary and fiscal policies and debt build-up we’ve had over the last 30 years… If you look at the data for New York—which is the epicenter of the whole COVID-19 pandemic—it is abundantly clear that COVID is not some kind of latter-day Black Death plague that takes down the young, the old, the healthy, the sick, and everyone in between… It is a kind of super winter flu that strikes fatally, almost entirely, the elderly population that is already afflicted with many life-threatening medical conditions—or what the technicians call comorbidities… The shutdown, which I call the “plenary lockdown policy,” is wrong. Closing all the businesses except a tiny, arbitrary set of essential operations is courting disaster for no good reason… I think the best way to look at it is to see that $6 trillion of new debt in two years is equivalent to what it took 213 years and 43 presidents to produce—that’s how long it took to get to the first $6 trillion of public debt… That’s how bad this has gotten, and it will destroy any remaining semblance of market capitalism we have in this country… When you have a coast-to-coast soup line, with the government underwriting 100% of what everybody was getting in January 2020 by merely piling it onto the public debt, and then having the Fed printing money to fund it, you’re asking for a calamity—a financial and economic disaster of biblical proportions.””

Questioning the Coronavirus Pandemic – Separating Fact from Fiction (1hr 45min) – with Dr. Kelly Brogan, Dr. Andrew Kaufman and Dr. Barre Lando, Hosted by Matt Belair

Anatomy Of A Fiat Currency Collapse – by Alasdair Macleod – – “This article asserts that infinite money-printing is set to destroy fiat currencies far quicker than might be generally thought. This final act of monetary destruction follows a 98% loss of purchasing power for dollars since the London gold pool failed. And now the Fed and other major central banks are committing to an accelerated, infinite monetary debasement to underwrite their entire private sectors and their governments’ spending, to prop up bond markets and therefore all financial asset prices… It repeats the mistakes of John Law in France three hundred years ago almost to the letter, but this time on a global scale. History, economic theory and even common sense tell us governments and their central banks will rapidly destroy their currencies. So that we can see how to protect ourselves from this monetary madness, we dig into history for guidance to see who benefited from the Austrian and German hyperinflations of 1922-23, and how fortunes were made and lost.”

No, This Is Not Another 1929, 1973, 1987, 2000, Or 2008 – by Charles Hugh Smith – – “But the reality is there is no analogous situation in the past to the present, and so all the predictions based on past performance will be misleading. The chartists and analysts claim that all markets act on the same patterns, which are reflections of human nature, and so seeking correlations of volatility and valuation that “worked” in the past will work in 2020… Does anyone really believe the correlations of the past decade or two are high-probability predictors of the future as the entire brittle construct of fictional capital and extremes of globalization and financialization all unravel at once?.. Here are a few of the many consequential differences between all previous recessions and the current situation…”

“Like A Black Mirror Episode”: Company Laid Off 406 People In 2-Minute Zoom Call – by Tyler Durden – – “A California-based startup that’s seen recent success as a popular electric scooter rental service in cities across the nation appears to have set a record in terms of number of employees laid off on the spot in the least amount of time… Bird, which is headquartered in Santa Monica, but maintains clusters of employees nationwide that must service and oversee its fleet of ‘Bird scooters’ including app developers invited 406 employees to attend what the company called a “COVID-19 Update” Zoom meeting on March 27. And then a massacre ensued… a two-minute massacre… ‘Once employees logged onto the one-way meeting, a woman’s voice began reading a script, informing the attendees that they had all been laid off in a 2-minute speech,’ SF Gate describes… To add insult to injury it was the chief communications officer, Rebecca Hahn, apparently forced to fire over 400 employees on the spot seemingly while fighting back tears – in a “choked monotone” as one staff member put it – instead of Bird’s founder and CEO, Travis VanderZanden. This was some 40% of the company’s total employees… A prior detailed account was related by dot.LA as follows: The woman began by acknowledging ‘this is a suboptimal way to deliver this message.’ Then she cut to the chase: ‘COVID-19 has also had a massive impact on our business, one that has forced our leadership team and our board of directors to make extremely difficult and painful decisions. One of those decisions is to eliminate a number of roles at the company. Unfortunately your role is impacted by this decision.’ “

Turkey Deployed Over 2,800 Military Vehicles In Syria’s Greater Idlib: Monitoring Group Turkish military has deployed 2,810 vehicles in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib since the ceasefire became active on March 5, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed on April 24… According to the UK-based monitoring group, a total of 10,300 Turkish service members have been sent to Greater Idlib since last February. The troops are stationed in more than 50 posts throughout the Syrian region.” (underlined emphasis added)

Field Marshal Haftar Addresses The Nation As Opposing GNA Pumps Out Dubious Propaganda – “On April 23rd, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar addressed the Libyan Nation… In his speech, he held the Presidential Council fully responsible for losing the sovereignty of the country to Turkish invaders and terrorists and called for the complete rejection of the Libyan Political Agreement… Below is the English translation of his entire statement…”

USA Today Fact Check: It’s True Hospitals Are Paid More If Patients Listed as COVID-19, on Ventilators – Don’t worry, nobody has ever acted on a powerful financial incentive – by Michelle Rogers – – “Our ruling: True: We rate the claim that hospitals get paid more if patients are listed as COVID-19 and on ventilators as TRUE.Hospitals and doctors do get paid more for Medicare patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or if it’s considered presumed they have COVID-19 absent a laboratory-confirmed test, and three times more if placed on a ventilator to cover the cost of care and loss of business resulting from a shift in focus to treat COVID-19 cases… This higher allocation of funds has been made possible under the CARES Act through a Medicare 20% add-on to its regular DRG payment for COVID-19 patients, as verified by USA TODAY through the American Hospital Association Special Bulletin on the topic.”

California ER Physicians: Sheltering in Place Does More Harm than Good – Lowers Our Immune System – by Brian Shilhavy – – “Doctors Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi of Accelerated Urgent Care in Kern County, California refuse to wear masks outside. They say the longer people stay inside, the more their immune system drops… Local NBC News affiliate KGET in Bakersfield interviewed the two doctors this week (April 2020), and the video of the interview was posted on their Facebook Page where it has already been viewed by almost 3 million people at the time of this publication… Will Facebook remove it, since these doctors disagree with other health authorities? We are publishing the YouTube version below, although Google is also censoring views like this on YouTube, so it will be interesting to see if they censor something a corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media source has published at the local affiliate in Bakersfield, California… The doctors are reportedly the owners of the largest testing site in Kern County, Califorina. They’ve tested over 5000 people already for COVID-19.”

From the Bad-To-The-Bone Desk: Techno-Tyranny: How The US National Security State Is Using Coronavirus To Fulfill An Orwellian Vision – by Whitney Webb – – “Last year, a government commission called for the US to adopt an AI-driven mass surveillance system far beyond that used in any other country in order to ensure American hegemony in artificial intelligence. Now, many of the “obstacles” they had cited as preventing its implementation are rapidly being removed under the guise of combating the coronavirus crisis.,, Now, less than a year later, the coronavirus crisis has helped spawn a slew of headlines in just the last few weeks that paint AI very differently, including “How Artificial Intelligence Can Help Fight Coronavirus,” “How AI May Prevent the Next Coronavirus Outbreak,” “AI Becomes an Ally in the Fight Against COVID-19,” “Coronavirus: AI steps up in battle against COVID-19,” and “Here’s How AI Can Help Africa Fight the Coronavirus,” among numerous others… It is indeed striking how the coronavirus crisis has seemingly fulfilled the NSCAI’s entire wishlist and removed many of the obstacles to the mass adoption of AI technologies in the United States. Like major crises of the past, the national security state appears to be using the chaos and fear to promote and implement initiatives that would be normally rejected by Americans and, if history is any indicator, these new changes will remain long after the coronavirus crisis fades from the news cycle. It is essential that these so-called “solutions” be recognized for what they are and that we consider what type of world they will end up creating – an authoritarian technocracy. We ignore the rapid advance of these NSCAI-promoted initiatives and the phasing out of so-called “legacy systems” (and with them, many long-cherished freedoms) at our own peril.”

Trump Says He “Strongly Disagrees” With Gov Kemp’s Decision To Reopen Georgia – “In his first major break with Republican governors since the beginning of the pandemic, President Trump said during Wednesday evening’s press briefing that he “strongly disagreed” with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp’s decision to start reopening his state on Friday: ‘I told the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, that I disagree strongly with his decision to open certain facilities which are in violation of the phase one guidelines for the incredible people of Georgia,’ the president said during his nightly press conference on Wednesday. ‘But at the same time, he must do what he thinks is right, I want him to do what he thinks is right.’.. Specifically, Trump cited Georgia’s non-compliance with the standards laid out in the ‘Phase 1’ federal guidelines as his reason for disagreeing with the decision. Remember, qualifying for phase one requires seeing a 14-day decline in new infections, though cases have declined from record highs seen earlier this month… The governor’s decision, which he announced on Monday, was met with a hail of criticism from scientists, the press, Democrats and even some Republicans. Many small business owners have said they probably won’t reopen right away despite the decision, and the mayors of the state’s biggest cities – all of whom are Democrats – are telling residents to simply ignore the governor.

Techno-Tyranny: How The US National Security State Is Using Coronavirus To Fulfill An Orwellian Vision – by Whitney Webb – – “Last year, a U.S. government body dedicated to examining how artificial intelligence can “address the national security and defense needs of the United States” discussed in detail the “structural” changes that the American economy and society must undergo in order to ensure a technological advantage over China, according to a recent document acquired through a FOIA request. This document suggests that the U.S. follow China’s lead and even surpass them in many aspects related to AI-driven technologies, particularly their use of mass surveillance. This perspective clearly clashes with the public rhetoric of prominent U.S. government officials and politicians on China, who have labeled the Chinese government’s technology investments and export of its surveillance systems and other technologies as a major “threat” to Americans’ “way of life.”… In addition, many of the steps for the implementation of such a program in the U.S., as laid out in this newly available document, are currently being promoted and implemented as part of the government’s response to the current coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis. This likely due to the fact that many members of this same body have considerable overlap with the taskforces and advisors currently guiding the government’s plans to “re-open the economy” and efforts to use technology to respond to the current crisis… The FOIA document, obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), was produced by a little-known U.S. government organization called the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI). It was created by the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and its official purpose is ‘to consider the methods and means necessary to advance the development of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and associated technologies to comprehensively address the national security and defense needs of the United States.’ ”

CBDC: The Overarching Goal Behind The Digitisation Of Money? – by Steven Guinness – – “In January 2019 the Bank for International Settlements published a paper called, ‘Proceeding with caution – a survey on central bank digital currency‘. I briefly covered the survey in an article published back in September last year. Back then the BIS reported that a majority of banks were engaged in active research on CBDC’s, but none were yet in a position to launch a digital variant of physical money… The BIS followed this survey up in January 2020 with some new research – ‘Impending arrival – a sequel to the survey on central bank digital currency‘… We learn that the 70% of central banks that were researching CBDC’s has now risen to 80%, with many of them reliant on ‘research conducted by international organisations (in particular the BIS and the IMF) or regional networks‘. The BIS’s Innovation Hub initiative, established in the summer of 2019, has been key in coordinating the advancement of CBDC’s projects worldwide. This is one of the reasons why banks are operating in step with one another… As the survey points out, ‘collaboration through international vehicles such as the BIS Innovation Hub will be necessary to avoid any unforeseen international consequences.’ ”

565 Americans Have Lost Their Job For Every Confirmed COVID-19 Death In The US – by Tyler Durden – – “Worse still, the final numbers will likely be worsened due to the bailout itself: as a reminder, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed on March 27, could contribute to new records being reached in coming weeks as it increases eligibility for jobless claims to self-employed and gig workers, extends the maximum number of weeks that one can receive benefits, and provides an additional $600 per week until July 31. A recent WSJ article noted that this has created incentives for some businesses to temporarily furlough their employees, knowing that they will be covered financially as the economy is shutdown. Meanwhile, those making below $50k will generally be made whole and possibly be better off on unemployment benefits… Furthermore, as families across the nation grapple with lost jobs and struggle to get meals on the table, The Epoch Times’ Zachary Stieber reports that food stamp benefits are up 40%, according to the Department of Agriculture.”

“There’s No Liquidity” – Mortgage Lenders Abandon “No Brainer” Best Credit Risk Borrowers – by Tyler Durden – – “Jumbo loans are mortgages for the best credit risk borrowers who want to purchase mansions. In pre-corona times, lenders were falling over each other to welcome jumbo borrowers, but not anymore… Greg McBride, the Bankrate chief financial analyst, recently said demand has dried up for jumbo mortgages as investors shift to mortgage bonds for government-backed loans where ‘they’re assured of receiving payments even if large numbers of borrowers are in forbearance.’.. ‘Most mortgages get made by lenders who then sell it to someone else,’ McBride said. ‘If there is no willing buyer, lenders will stop closing loans so as not to be stuck holding the bag.’ ”

Of All The Banks That Shafted Small Businesses Out Of Coronavirus Relief, JPMorgan Takes The Cake – by Tyler Durden – – “Of the bank’s more than 300,000 small business customers who applied, only around 18,000 were funded according to the report. Meanwhile, around 5,500 of the bank’s commercial banking customers – nearly all of them, received loans through the small business lending program… What – was the bank supposed to simply make less money by holding up loans to giant corporations (many of which are public) in order to serve smaller clients that the PPP stimulus money was meant for? At least 29 public companies have disclosed receiving loans from JPMorgan, totaling approximately $141 million, and averaging around $5 million each… The $349 billion PPP offered forgivable loans of up to $10 million for companies with up to 500 employees. The funds quickly dried up after a flood of large businesses and hedge funds tapped the program ahead of those who need it most – struggling small businesses… With lenders inundated with applications, the Small Business Administration’s computer system temporarily froze – running out of money in just 13 days.”

What Did U.S. Intel Really Know About the ‘Chinese’ Virus? – by Pepe Escobar – – “The bottom line is explosive: the Trump administration as well as the CDC had an advance warning of no less than four months – from November to March – to be properly prepared for Covid-19 hitting the U.S. And they did nothing. The whole “China is a witch!” case is debunked… Moreover, the Israeli disclosure supports what’s nothing less than extraordinary: U.S. intel already knew about Sars-Cov-2 roughly one month before the first confirmed cases detected by doctors in a Wuhan hospital. Talk about divine intervention… That could only have happened if U.S. intel knew, for sure, about a previous chain of events that would necessarily lead to the “mysterious outbreak” in Wuhan. And not only that: they knew exactly where to look. Not in Inner Mongolia, not in Beijing, not in Guangdong province.”

CDC’s failed coronavirus tests were tainted with coronavirus, feds confirm – A federal investigation found CDC researchers not following protocol – by Beth Mole – – “…according to investigation results reported by The New York Times, federal officials confirm that sloppy laboratory practices at two of three CDC labs involved in the tests’ creation led to contamination of the tests and their uninterpretable results… Shortly after the problems became apparent in early February, the Food and Drug Administration sent Timothy Stenzel, chief of in vitro diagnostics and radiological health, to the CDC to investigate what was going wrong. According to the Times, he found a lack of coordination and inexperience in commercial manufacturing.

California Study Shows Virus Much More Pervasive “But Not Killing At Rate We Thought” – by Tyler Durden – – “The LA Times reports on preliminary findings from a coronavirus study in Los Angeles County, which show a whopping 4.1% of adults have antibodies to the virus in their blood. The county is home to 10 million residents, meaning hundreds of thousands have likely been exposed, according to the study… LA Times concludes of the study’s high numbers: ‘That translates to roughly 221,000 to 442,000 adults who have recovered from an infection, once margin of error is taken into account, according to the researchers conducting the study. The county had reported fewer than 8,000 cases at that time.’.. One scientist concluded that among Californians the study results are ‘very consistent with the fact that the virus is very common but not killing at the rate we thought.’.. But the study presents a possible upside as well: The findings suggest the fatality rate may be much lower than previously thought. But although the virus may be more widespread, the infection rate still falls far short of herd immunity that, absent a vaccine, would be key to return to normal life.” (emphasis added)

CA To Allow Elective Surgeries, Ramp Up Coronavirus Testing – California hospitals can resume elective surgeries that had been on hold due to the coronavirus, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday – by Nick Garber – – “Hospitals in California are now in a position to resume scheduling elective surgeries, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday, saying the state’s medical facilities had expanded enough to handle any future surges of new coronavirus patients… ‘If [procedures] are delayed, it becomes ultimately denied,’ Newsom said at Wednesday afternoon’s news conference… Again on Wednesday, Newsom said he could not provide a timeline for when major sectors of California’s economy could reopen. The gradual process of reopening will look like a dimmer, the governor said — not a light switch… ‘There is no light switch, and there is no date,’ Newsom said… Most notably, the state may need to reintroduce strict containment measures as long as the virus remains present, Newsom has said. The governor described a ‘toggling back and forth between more-restrictive and less-restrictive measures’ when the virus inevitably surges back… Large public events and mass gatherings will remain banned until a vaccine is developed and the state reaches “herd immunity” — a development that won’t come for at least 18 months, experts have said.” (emphasis added)

Fauci Resurfaces: NIH Panel Recommends Against Drug Combo Promoted By Trump For COVID-19 – by Alex Stevens – – ““This step-back allows Dr. Fauci to better position himself for maximum political damage when the [Democrat] operatives deploy Fauci as an expert antagonist who recommended against re-opening; which frames the soon-to-be deployed ‘dangerous Trump’ narrative,’ Conservative Treehouse reports… ‘However, in the background; and with Fauci’s crew working on the Bill Gates objective for global COVID-19 vaccinations; the NIH today recommends against any treatment for the coronavirus using a hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin cocktail,’ CTH adds… ‘A panel of experts convened by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases recommends against doctors using a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19 patients because of potential toxicities,’ National Public Radio reports.”

From the Enemies-Of-The-People Desk: CDC director warns second wave of coronavirus is likely to be even more devastating – by Lena H. Sun – – ” ‘There’s a possibility that the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually be even more difficult than the one we just went through,’ CDC Director Robert Redfield said in an interview with The Washington Post. ‘And when I’ve said this to others, they kind of put their head back, they don’t understand what I mean.’.. In a wide-ranging interview, Redfield said federal and state officials need to use the coming months to prepare for what lies ahead. As stay-at-home orders are lifted, officials need to stress the continued importance of social distancing, he said. They also need to massively scale up their ability to identify the infected through testing and find everyone they interact with through contact tracing. Doing so prevents new cases from becoming larger outbreaks.”

From the Be-VERY-Afraid Desk: A mysterious blood-clotting complication is killing coronavirus patients – by Ariana Eunjung Cha – – “Increasingly, doctors also are reporting bizarre, unsettling cases that don’t seem to follow any of the textbooks they’ve trained on. They describe patients with startlingly low oxygen levels — so low that they would normally be unconscious or near death — talking and swiping on their phones. Asymptomatic pregnant women suddenly in cardiac arrest. Patients who by all conventional measures seem to have mild disease deteriorating within minutes and dying at home… With no clear patterns in terms of age or chronic conditions, some scientists hypothesize that at least some of these abnormalities may be explained by severe changes in patients’ blood.” – Comment: U.S. Intelligence has been targeting “persons of interest” for the last few decades with technological attacks. What if these technologies are now being used against “Covid-19” patients to continue the push for social control?

Police start fining people for not wearing face masks in public – “Under the rule, masks covering the mouth and nose must be worn when in “a building other than one’s residence or another place where one stays on a regular basis,” on public transport, and during “assembly in an open space.” Masks must also be carried at all times when outside of one’s home… In addition, business owners must deny entry and service to customers not wearing masks.”

De Blasio: Ratting out neighbors for social distancing isn’t ‘snitching’ – Threatens $1000 fines for those “not heeding” social distancing – – “Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled down on his controversial push to get New Yorkers to rat on their neighbors who are not social distancing — insisting it was needed in “wartime” with an invisible enemy… ‘In war times, in a time when people’s lives are threatened … I’m sorry, this is not snitching, this is saving lives,’ Hizzoner said of his “New Squeal” push for New Yorkers to snap photos of those gathering in public…’“You’ve got to do it,’ he said, insisting it was the only way of ‘protecting your own family’ and fellow Gothamites… ‘When we were threatened with terrorism, no one doubted that it was right if you saw something to call it in immediately,’ he said of suspicious behavior… ‘This is just the same reality, we just have a different enemy — an enemy you can’t see, but an enemy that has taken so many lives’ he said… ‘We need those photos. We need those locations so we can enforce right away.’.. The mayor conceded that staying inside was only going to get harder with the arrival of gorgeous Springtime temperatures — but threatened to dole out $1,000 fines for those he said failed to heed social distancing guidelines… ‘If you don’t understand it yet, we’re gonna have to get tougher and tougher,’ he said… As of Sunday, the city had issued a total 244 summonses and fines of up to $1,000 thanks to “proactive enforcement efforts” — not including extra ones from the NYPD in response to 311 or 911 calls, a City Hall spokesperson told The Post.”

Email Addresses And Passwords From WHO, NIH, Wuhan Lab, And Gates Foundation Dumped On 4chan – by Tyler Durden – – “A cache of nearly 25,000 email addresses and passwords allegedly belonging to the World Health Organization (WHO), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Wuhan Institute of Virology, Bill Gates Foundation and several other groups involved with the coronavirus pandemic response were dumped on 4chan before appearing on several other websites, according to the SITE Intelligence Group… The report by SITE, based in Bethesda, Md., said the largest group of alleged emails and passwords was from the NIH, with 9,938 found on lists posted online. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had the second-highest number, with 6,857. The World Bank had 5,120. The list of WHO addresses and passwords totaled 2,732. –Washington Post

Another Million Homeowners Just Applied For COVID-19 Forbearance In The Past Week – by Tyler Durden – – “Last week we reported that the number of Americans applying for the government’s mortgage forbearance program had spiked to 3.74%, up from 2.73% the week before… One week later, total home loans in pandemic-induced forbearance stand at 5.95%, an increase of 60% on the week as roughly a million more homeowners applied for help – bringing the total number of distressed borrowers under the program to roughly 3 million, according to the new Forbearance and Call Volume Survey published by the Mortgage Bankers Association… Of those, Ginnie Mae loans grew the most week-over-week, from 5.89% to 8.26%, while the share of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans grew from 2.44% to 4.64%.”

Trump Ordered US Navy To Destroy Iranian Gunboats That Harras US Warships In Persian Gulf – “A recent video released by #Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps shows the IRGC Navy warning off a flotilla of US warships in the #PersianGulf as they try to approach the Iranian territorial waters.… Recently, the number of incident between the US Navy and the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy in the Persian Gulf increased… ‘I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.’ -@RealDonaldTrump on Twitter”

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Executes 19-Year Old Handed Over By Turkish Authorities – “According to activists, the victim, Mohamad Aqib Hamam Tanu, was departed to Syria’s Greater Idlib, controlled by HTS and other terrorist groups, by Turkish authorities. Tano was a refuge in Turkey for the last five years… Locals from Tanu’s hometown, Darat Izza in northern Aleppo, denied HTS’ accusations. The locals said HTS executed Tanu because its security forces found insults to their leader, Abu Mohamad al-Julani, in his phone… Tanu was reportedly a former member of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement. The Turkish-backed group is one of the main opponents of HTS, which indicate that the man was indeed executed because of his political believes (sic).”

A Post I put up today on a Chat Group: Re: “The Guns”: If, in fact, there are plans afoot (and it should be clear by this point that every detail of the program of bringing down the New Order on the people of the world globally has been carefully considered in advance) to invade private homes and remove family members, including children “safely, and with dignity,” and last week Dr. Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, said that this was going to be essential and was coming, then I would anticipate this will go over the “red lines” of many people who have already come out declaring that they do not consent to the extreme over-reach of authority by so-called National Governments and that they would not be taking the Vaccine Injections, nor would they be allowing them for their families. In this case, I speculate that the use of ballistic weaponry will likely be involved in peoples’ defensive measures – And this will be the justification used by the globalist-complicit “local authorities” for the absolute violation of natural, unalienable rights of self-defense involved with starting operations to remove peoples’ guns.

US Threatens Strikes On 122 Targets Within Iraq Unless Tension Subsides – “Reportedly, in March, the Pentagon began drafting plans for a major escalation against the Iran-backed factions, namely Kata’ib Hezbollah, blamed for the rockets… Kata’ib Hezbollah is a part of the Popular Mobilization Units, which are a part of the Iraqi Armed Forces. The US attacked their positions on December 30th, 2019 in a reported response on attacks blamed on them, and as a result killed dozens… The above-mentioned Pentagon plan, reportedly includes simultaneously hitting 122 inside Iraq if any more Americans died: ‘Washington told us they’d simultaneously hit 122 targets in Iraq if more Americans died,’ a top Iraqi official said.”

‘Coronavirus Did Not Come out of a Laboratory’, WHO Holds – “The UN agency insists that ‘we must focus on facts’ and not on conspiracy theories… The World Health Organization (WHO) Tuesday denied that the coronavirus was created in a laboratory and clarified that the pathogen originated in animals… ‘All the evidence we have suggests that the virus was of animal origin and did not undergo genetic manipulation,” the WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib said… ‘Many researchers have analyzed the genetic characteristics of the virus and have found no indications supporting the idea that it was built in a laboratory… Every day we are not only fighting the pandemic but also the infodemic,’ she added.” (emphasis added) Comment: First they ignore you, then they oppose you, then you win.

Misleading Pictures Behind The Media’s Fight Against Relaxing Lockdown Orders – by Mike Santorini – – “U.S. states that haven’t been as heavily affected by the coronavirus as others are taking steps to return to normalcy by easing restrictions to reopen their economies. The media seems to overwhelmingly think this is a bad idea and continues to show those efforts in a bad light.”

PhD Epidemiologist: Social Distancing and Lockdown Worst Way to Deal with Airborne Respiratory Virus (w/Video 42min)- Comments by Brian Shilhavy – – “Today we continue to offer alternative perspectives from other scientists and medical doctors on the COVID-19 virus, and the response to it. As I have previously written, we feel it is important to give a voice to all sides of this current pandemic, especially because so much is being censored from the coporate-sponsored “mainstream” media… Facebook just announced, for example, that they are banning any information regarding protests against the government’s response to COVID-19 that has put millions of people out of work.”

Will people in the U.S. have to cope with another 18 months of rolling coronavirus shutdowns? This expert thinks they will – by Tracey Watson – – “As reported by MSN Money, Neel Kashkari, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, has warned that unless an effective treatment or vaccine can be found for the coronavirus, it is likely that the U.S. economy will have to deal with many months of rolling shutdowns as the country deals with repeated disease flareups… “We’re looking around the world,” Kashkari told CBS’s Face the Nation. ‘As they relax the economic controls, the virus flares back up again… We could have these waves of flareups, controls, flareups and controls until we actually get a therapy or a vaccine,’ he added. ‘I think we should all be focusing on an 18-month strategy for our health care system and our economy.’.. While Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and one of President Trump’s chief advisers on the coronavirus, has indicated that some parts of the economy could be reopened in May, he has warned that the disease could flare up again in the Fall.” (emphases added) – Comment: Since when is Neel Kashkari, a Fed Banker, and one of the principal architects of the engineered financial collapse of 2008-2009, an “expert” on public health policy?! This guy is an insider’s insider. He say “the economy” will have to deal with months of draconian public policy created by people like him, based on what are obvious distortions and lies. And the ultimate aim is for a “new economy,” created in secret by unknown groups with whom Kashcari is most likely involved. Wake up and smell the coffee.

REVEALED: UK Ministers Knew Crisis Had Peaked Before Lockdown, But Panicked Anyway – from 21st Century – – “The Oxford professor also explains how government experts have been ‘consistently wrong’ throughout the crisis, and even revealed how UK ministers descended into panic, and appeared to have ‘lost sight of the evidence’ – as they rushed the country into a full national quarantine even though they had access to, and were being briefed with, accurate data which showed the crisis had already peaked… Heneghan also stated that some of the non-lockdown states like Sweden have done well to ‘hold their nerve’ while eschewing popular ‘doomsday scenarios’ which were being pushed incessantly by governments and media in order to justify draconian lockdown policies. The Scandinavian country has recorded just 392 new patients and 40 deaths today, approximately 10 per cent of the UK totals. Britain’s diagnoses have not been announced yet.”

Zuckerberg Calls Lockdown Protests ‘Misinformation’; Promises Facebook Will Ban Organizers – by Mike Santorini – – “Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said information about organized protests against stay-at-home orders spread on the platform will be banned as “harmful misinformation.”.. Zuckerberg made the remarks in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” with George Stephanopoulos on Monday… ‘How do you deal with the fact that Facebook is now being used to organize a lot of these protests to defy social distancing guidelines in states?’ Stephanopoulos asked. ‘If somebody trying to organize something like that, does that qualify as harmful misinformation?’.. ‘We do classify that as harmful misinformation and we take that down,’ Zuckerberg said. ‘At the same time, it’s important that people can debate policies, so there’s a line on this, you know, more than normal political discourse. I think a lot of the stuff that people are saying that is false around a health emergency like this can be classified as harmful misinformation.’.. A spokesperson for Facebook said the platform will only take down events that violate state social distancing laws.”

From the We-Love-Our-Servitude Desk: Signs Of Hope And Across Bay Area During Coronavirus Crisis – “At the InterContinental Hotel – currently sparsely booked – management has been lighting up windows across several floors to create the shape of a heart. Images of clapping hands and fluttering prayer flags dance across the six-story LED art installation atop the Salesforce Tower… And you can set your watch by the howling – at precisely 8 p.m. for the past few weeks, people leading sheltered lives amid the COVID-19 crisis have ventured out on front porches and opened their windows wide to howl, hoot, clap or whistle – all an effort to look on the bright side and support the front-line health care workers, delivery people, first responders and others in businesses declared essential… In Berkeley, someone recently taped a large hand-painted sign on the University Avenue pedestrian overpass above Interstate 80 reading, “It will all be OK!”.. These kinds of symbolic acts have been going on around the country and the world since the coronavirus was declared a pandemic in early March… Seniors in an Orlando high-rise have been flicking their lights to show solidarity with doctors and nurses. People in Italy have been singing and playing music on their balconies. And Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue is illuminated with images of continents and flags from many countries, signaling a unified world effort… In Walnut Creek, tech/media firm One Planet launched, a nonprofit site for people around the world of all religious and non-religious backgrounds to join together in a chain of continuous prayers and positive reflections… ‘We are one humanity, and we collectively are experiencing suffering, loss and uncertainty,’ said One Planet CEO Payam Zamani.”

Inovio COVID-19 Vaccine Uses Electricity to Drive DNA Into Body Cells – by Barbara Loe Fisher and Kate Raines – – “Inovio Pharmaceuticals headquartered in Pennsylvania, has just begun Phase 1 human clinical trials of its new DNA vaccine for COVID-19 (INO-4800).1 Inovio’s experimental DNA vaccine uses an electrical device to deliver DNA directly into the cells of a person being vaccinated.2… The company’s Apr. 6, 2020 announcement of Phase 1 clinical trials stated: “Preclinical data, which have been shared with global regulatory authorities and submitted as part of the IND, have shown promising immune response results across multiple animal models. Additional … preclinical trials, including challenge studies, will continue in parallel with the Phase 1 clinical trial.”3… In the U.S., the development, testing and licensing process for an experimental vaccine generally takes 15-20 years to complete,4 5 but there are calls to speed up the licensing process for COVID-19 vaccines.6… Drug companies in the U.S. and other countries are racing to fast track their experimental COVID-19 vaccines to market within 12 to 18 months or even sooner.7 If companies get an “emergency use” authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA),8 Inovio’s DNA vaccine could be among those vaccines ready by the fall of 2020 to be distributed to health care workers and other groups considered to be at “high risk” for COVID-19 infections or complications… Inovio’s COVID-19 vaccine research has been funded by a $5M grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and a $9M grant from the Norway-based Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI).9 Inovio also has a partnership with Philadelphia’s Wistar Institute and Beijing Advaccine Biotechnology Co. in China to develop the vaccine.10 11 In addition, Inovio has a partnership with Ology Bioservices, Inc., headquartered in Florida. Ology and Inovio secured a $11.9M contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to provide the experimental DNA coronavirus vaccine for upcoming clinical trials and potential manufacturing of the vaccine for military personnel in the future... However, for the past several decades, scientists have been experimenting with creation of nucleic acid vaccines which, according to NIAID, “involves introducing genetic material encoding the antigen or antigens against which an immune response is sought. The body’s own cells then use this genetic material to produce the antigens.”19 DNA vaccines like Inovio’s experimental COVID-19 vaccine (INO-4800) inject a small piece of circular DNA called a plasmid that carries genes encoding proteins from the pathogen (in this case, COVID-19) to provoke the cells into producing antibodies… Writing in Biotech Primer, Emily Burke, PhD explained that, “the ‘visiting’ DNA prompts the host to produce the target viral protein and consequent immune response within their own cells, but without [causing] an infection. DNA vaccines try to stimulate the body’s cells to continue to reproduce the antigen. Burke commented on the difficulty of getting the body’s cells to accept injected DNA without further intervention and stated:20… The key challenge for DNA/RNA vaccines is getting patients’ cells to accept the introduced genetic material. So far, the most effective technique seems to be electroporation–delivering short pulses of electrical current to the patient with the vaccine. The electricity creates temporary pores in a patient’s cell membranes, enabling the DNA/RNA to enter.’ ” (emphases added) – Comment: What could go wrong?

Miscounting Deaths from Coronavirus? – by Marco Cáceres – – “If a patient is positive for COVID-19 and dies from another cause such as pneumococcal sepsis, it may be considered accurate to say that person died with COVID-19 not from COVID-19. Yet the CDC guideline lists this case as one more COVID-19 death and they go to the next questionable death, they label that as COVID-19 and it goes on and on. You could see how these statistics have been made to look scary when it is so easy to add false numbers to the official database. Those false numbers are sanctioned by the CDC…” -Dr. Annie Bukacek, MD, Hosanna Health Care, Kalispell, Montana

Medical Analytics Firm: COVID19 Vaccine to Take 5.2 Years to Develop with 5% Chance of Success – by Brian Shilhavy – – “Fierce Pharma reports: “Using a tool it developed called Cortellis Analytics, Clarivate estimated that Moderna has just a 5% probability of success with its COVID-19 vaccine mRNA-1273, and that the time window for approval would be 5.2 years… The low probability of success reflects the fact that mRNA is a new, unproven approach to vaccines, said Sarah Hardison, Ph.D., head of product, regulatory and pharmacovigilance at Clarivate, in an email.’.. What could change these predictions is whether or not companies developing the vaccine would be granted ’emergency-use approval from the FDA to get mRNA-1273 on the market quickly.’ ” (emphasis added)

New York City to Spend $3.5Bln. By 2021 to Fight COVID-19 PandemicMayor –—mayor/ – “New York City authorities estimate $3.5 billion will be spent by the end of 2020 in the effort to fight the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a press briefing on Monday… De Blasio criticized President Donald Trump for remaining “silent” regarding the budget crisis New York City faces and said without adequate federal assistance the city will not be able to recover and provide public services.”

Russia’s Coronavirus Peak Still Ahead – Putin—putin/ – “Enormous Responsibility Rests on the Shoulders of Vaccine Creators – Commenting on Russian scientists’ ongoing efforts toward the creation of a vaccine for the new coronavirus, Putin stressed that a “enormous responsibility” lies on the shoulders of developers… ‘I understand well and am aware about the difficult, painstaking scientific research that’s being conducted in this direction. It’s difficult to make guesses here [regarding time frames] because the vaccine should not only be received, but its effectiveness and safety must also be proven,’ Putin said. ‘In this regard, I understand the enormous responsibility that lies with developers for the results of their work. However, I would like you to express your views on the possible time frame for the development of the vaccine. We must know this in order to prepare industrial capacities in advance to quickly start production of the vaccine in necessary amounts,’ he added. Putin also asked whether any additional financial or organizational assistance was required by researcher, promising to provide such help “immediately” if necessary… According to Putin, it would only be logical to vaccinate medical workers first once the vaccine becomes available.” (emphasis added) – Comment: It certainly seems as if Russia has been fully entrained into the Gates/WHO/Fergusson/Fauci/Globalist model for “response” to the COVIDastrophe.

For the Week of 4/13/20:

Coronavirus and the Gates Foundation – by F. William Engdahl – – “We must admit that at the very least Bill Gates is prophetic. He has claimed for years that a global killer pandemic will come and that we are not prepared for it. On March 18, 2015 Gates gave a TED talk on epidemics in Vancouver. That day he wrote on his blog, “I just gave a brief talk on a subject that I’ve been learning a lot about lately—epidemics. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a tragedy—as I write this, more than 10,000 people have died.” Gates then added, “As awful as this epidemic has been, the next one could be much worse. The world is simply not prepared to deal with a disease—an especially virulent flu, for example—that infects large numbers of people very quickly. Of all the things that could kill 10 million people or more, by far the most likely is an epidemic.”… That same year, 2015, Bill Gates wrote an article for the New England Journal of Medicine titled, “The Next Epidemic: Lessons from Ebola.” There he spoke of a special class of drugs that “involves giving patients a set of particular RNA-based constructs that enables them to produce specific proteins(including antibodies).”

British Suicide Rate Soars To Record High – by Tyler Durden – – “New data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows the number of people taking their own lives in Britain jumped to a record high in 4Q19, reported Daily Mail… ONS recorded 1,413 suicides for 4Q19, compared with just 1,130 over the same period in 2017, resulting in a massive 25% increase.”

COVID and a 5G connection? – by Jon Rappoport – – “—No blanket assertions here. No claims that 5G technology “activates the virus.” No across-the-board answers. Instead, several key questions, and a few possible clues… I have to set the context. As I’ve been emphasizing, what is being called COVID-19 is not one disease with one cause. It’s not one thing… Instead, people with VARIOUS traditional diseases are being corralled, clustered, and counted by public health officials under ONE fake umbrella term, “COVID-19.”.. I’ve also emphasized that in these fake-cluster situations, some people may be suffering from new conditions. For example, the effects of a vaccination campaign—which, by the way, was apparently carried out in a region of northern Italy prior to “the emergence of COVID.”.. In this article, I have comments on 5G wireless technology—not as an all-inclusive explanation for “COVID”—but as a possible explanation for what several doctors are observing in some patients in New York and Italy.”

Meet The Companies Poised To Build The Kushner-Backed “Coronavirus Surveillance System” – by Whitney Webb – – “Though these private companies – as noted by Politico – are now offering their services of “surveillance” to the U.S. government “for free,” it is difficult to believe that their offer is altruistic in nature given their ties to companies and organizations that have long lobbied for or actively participated in mass surveillance for years, long before the current coronavirus came to dominate headlines and the public consciousness… Much like the Patriot Act after 9/11, the current pandemic crisis is being used to expand mass surveillance programs, programs that are unlikely to end after the pandemic fades. To the contrary, if history is any indicator, such sweeping new surveillance systems will instead be further expanded.”

They Are Rolling Out The Architecture Of Oppression Now Because They Fear The People – by Caitlin Johnstone – – ” ‘As authoritarianism spreads, as emergency laws proliferate, as we sacrifice our rights, we also sacrifice our capability to arrest the slide into a less liberal and less free world,’ NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said in a recent interview. ‘Do you truly believe that when the first wave, this second wave, the 16th wave of the coronavirus is a long-forgotten memory, that these capabilities will not be kept? That these datasets will not be kept? No matter how it is being used, what is being built is the architecture of oppression.’ ”

Here Are The Problems WIth Trump’s Plan To Reopen The Economy – by Tyler Durden – – “Here are the details: Phase one: most restrictions remain in place, but ‘some large public places — including restaurants, movie theaters, sporting venues and places of worship — would be allowed to operate under strict physical distancing protocols. Elective surgeries could resume and gyms could reopen as long as they maintained physical distancing.’; Phase two: nonessential travel resumes, schools reopen and bars open with ‘diminished standing room occupancy.’; Phase three: this is essentially the “new normal”. Assuming downward trends in cases, allow “public interactions” with physical distancing and unrestricted staffing of worksites, resume visits to care homes and hospitals, and further ease capacity restrictions at bars… There are problems, starting with the fact not a single state currently meets the criteria for a reduction in new covid cases…” (emphasis added)

Coronavirus: Theories & Consciousness | With Josh Del Sol (55 min) – Interview from Collective Evolution – Very thoughtful dialogue from Josh regarding the Pandemic Moment.

COVID-19 & The Collapse Of Cash – Steven Guinness – – “Retailers now began to take it upon themselves to compel shoppers not to use cash. At my workplace tannoy announcements were being made several times an hour encouraging customers to pay by card. Other stores like Pets at Home have gone further and banned cash payments altogether. Social distancing measures were extended to ATM machines restricting access to cash. Bank branches cut their opening hours or closed completely. The latest example of the animosity towards cash comes from the transport firm Stagecoach, who are now only accepting exact fares with drivers unable to give change… The impact that fear based supposition has had on cash has been catastrophic. The latest statistics and trends report published by Link illustrates the scale of damage. Consider first of all that for the week ending 23rd February the ATM transaction volume in the UK came to 42.6 million. For the week ending 12th April, the volume had dropped to 20.5 million, a collapse of 50%.”

‘Secret’ National Guard Unit Ready To Enforce ‘Martial Law’ In Washington DC – by Tyler Durden – – “Now, a report in Newsweek purports to prove that the Pentagon lied. In reality, a 10,000 soldier strong national guard unit has been deployed to the capital area with a ‘secret’ assignment to enforce martial law in Washington DC and help evacuate lawmakers and top government officials if things go south… In reality, the joint task force is already 10k strong, and is already on 24/7 alert… ‘And yet the activation of Joint Task Force National Capital Region, including almost 10,000 uniformed personnel to carry out its special orders, contradicts those assurances. JTF-NCR is not only real and operating, reporting directly to the Secretary of Defense for some of its mission, but some of its units are already on 24/7 alert, specially sequestered on military bases and kept out of coronavirus support duties to ensure their readiness.’.. Members of the Illinois 106th Aviation Battalion was called up under a federal statute placing them directly under the control of the Secretary of Defense. The soldiers, along with several Black Hawk helicopters, shipped out of Decatur, Illinois armory last month… The first hints about this “secret mission” were included in a local Illinois newspaper’s report about the call-up of Illinois National Guard forces who were being deployed at Fort Belvoir outside Washington.”

The Truth About the United States’ “Continuity of Government” Plans & The Coronavirus Perfect Storm – by Whitney Webb – – “Though often discussed in relation to nuclear war or a similarly chaotic scenario, “Continuity of Government” plans can be triggered even by popular, nonviolent opposition to an unpopular war abroad. It exists solely to keep the current system in place, regardless of the cost… Last week, Newsweek published a report entitled “Inside The Military’s Top Secret Plans If Coronavirus Cripples the Government,” which offers vague descriptions of different military plans that could be put into effect if the civilian government were to be largely incapacitated, with a focus on the potential of the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic to result in such a scenario.”

It’s Time to End the Lockdown – NOW! – by Makia Freeman – – “Out came the quarantine shaming and the virtue signaling… Out came the curfews (because remember, viruses spread more between the hours of 9pm and 5am, right? …). Out came the checkpoints (hey virus, show us your papers, please)… Out came the military on the American street (just don’t mention the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act)… Out came the 6 foot/1.5 meter/1 meter requirements (because viruses can jump different distances depending on which country they are taking a holiday in)… Out came the denial (they’re only doing it for your safety …). A little ignorance (of the nature of the virus and the mindset of your manipulators), a little fear … and you’re gone. Trapped. The sheeple are being masterfully conditioned… Don’t you dare complain – because coronavirus.”

Gates and Company’s COVID-19 Vaccine Boosterism Ignores Significant SARS Coronavirus Vaccine Risks Known for Over a Decade – “In early April, Dr. Jerome H. Kim (Director General of the United-Nations-affiliated International Vaccine Institute) called attention to the “unprecedented speed” with which the Phase I trials launched, stating that it will be difficult to know whether a vaccine developed in a scant four, 12 or even 18 months “is really safe” and noting that the vaccine development process ordinarily takes anywhere from five to ten years. Although striving for enthusiasm about the “remarkable” speed-up, Kim warned that even when vaccine makers appropriately begin the process with animal studies, ‘vaccine development is characterized by a high failure rate of ‘often 93%.’.. Dr. Kim’s words of warning are far from theoretical. In the mid-to-late 2000s, scientists engaged in an ultimately futile effort to develop a vaccine to address the first SARS-related coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Researchers of the day developed four SARS-CoV vaccines that underwent testing in animal models and two (described in 2007 and 2008) that proceeded to Phase I trials in humans. The less-than-reassuring results of the animal studies, in particular, prompted one set of researchers to conclude that ‘Caution in proceeding to application of a SARS-CoV vaccine in humans is indicated‘ [emphasis added]… To explain their findings, the Texas researchers pointed to studies showing similar immunopathologic reactions in human infants who, in the 1960s, received vaccines for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). That body of research found that the RSV vaccine “stimulated an unbalanced immune response” that “potentiated” disease in the vaccine recipients upon subsequent exposure to RSV, often leading to hospitalization and sometimes leading to death… More recently, in 2016, scientists expressed similar worries when children in the Philippines developed serious complications or died after receiving a vaccine to protect against dengue disease. Far from protecting the children, the vaccine dramatically worsened risks of severe complications in children exposed to dengue after vaccination. The deaths of roughly 600 children are now under criminal investigation.”

State Senate Votes To Override Democrat Governor’s Stay-At-Home Order – by Mike Santorini – – “The State Senate in Pennsylvania on Wednesday passed a bill that would partially revoke Gov. Tom Wolf’s stay-at-home order and allow most of the state’s businesses to reopen… Senate Bill 613 passed in the Pennsylvania Senate on Wednesday in a 29-21 vote after the state House approved it in a 107-95 vote the previous day… The GOP-controlled Senate also approved a bill that would allow counties to implement their own plans for reopening… The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee decried the move as “irresponsible” and warned that lives “will be lost” if the bill is signed into law, according to The Hill.”

Passport to the Brave New World: the vaccine – If you don’t know what freedom is, better figure it out now – by Jon Rappoport – – ” ‘I.G.T. is altogether different from traditional vaccination. It is instead a form of gene therapy. Scientists isolate the genes that produce powerful antibodies against certain diseases and then synthesize artificial versions. The genes are placed into viruses and injected into human tissue, usually muscle.’.. Here is the punchline: ‘The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.’.. Read that again: ‘the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA.’.. Alteration of the human genetic makeup… Not just a “visit.” Permanent residence.”

Universal Basic Income—or Universal Tragic Outcome? (19 min) – by Mike Maloney

Is W.H.O. Director Tedros a Terrorist? Global Ties to Bill Gates, Clinton Foundation, Dr. Fauci, China and Genocide – by Senta Depuydt – – “He is the first African to head the health agency and the first not to be a doctor. He holds a B.Sc. in Biology from the University of Asmara in Eritrea and a PhD in Community Health from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom in 2000 and served as Ethiopia’s Health Minister from 2005 to 2012… From 2009 to 2011, Tedros Ghebreyesus was also the Director of the Global Fund, a program to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, initiated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as the head of the UNAIDS Program Coordinating Board… A member of the Board of the GAVI Alliance for Immunization, Tedros Ghebreyesus was further closely associated with the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton AIDS Initiative (CHAI). Smiling and poised, he is portrayed as a humble, compassionate figure, a benefactor to humanity, dedicated to his heavy responsibilities… The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF): It is therefore rather astonishing to discover that Ghebreyesus’ political career began at the politburo of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPFL), a terrorist organization of the Tigray minority ethnic group (6% of the Ethiopian population), listed in the U.S. Homeland Security Global Terrorism Database for a series of kidnappings, bombings and armed robberies.”

George Soros and Bill Gates Exposed as the Force Behind Facebook’s New ‘Fake News’ Detector – by Claire Bernish – – “On Thursday, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the plan to combat fake news — incidentally, an issue he wasn’t concerned about until the left establishment applied pressure — but was met with consternation and outrage from constitutional rights advocates, alternative media, and right-leaning media for the singular viewpoint of the ostensible fact-checking organizations… Indeed, Facebook’s announcement it would use third-party fact-checkers from the ‘trusted’ Poynter Institute should have sounded even louder alarm bells, as Poynter receives funding from Soros’ Open Society Foundations, Google, the Craig Newmark Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Omidyar Network, and other extreme left groups… EBay founder Pierre Omidyar has donated over $30 million to the Clintons and their charities; the Gates have given the Clinton Foundation no less than $25 million; and the loathed George Soros — who donated an unprecedented $27 million to defeat George W. Bush in 2004 — reportedly spent over $25 million on Hillary Clinton and other Democrats this election cycle… In short, these entities who will be deeming articles legitimate or “disputed” are anything but unbiased.”

Twitter Suspends Infowars Reporter and News Director – by Mike Santorini – – “Twitter has suspended the personal accounts of Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer and news director Rob Dew, as well as the outlet’s account for its streaming platform, @banneddotvideo…It is unclear why Twitter took down the accounts. Lawyer Robert Barnes, who has represented Infowars founder Alex Jones said the platform didn’t provide a reason for Shroyer’s suspension. But before Twitter took action, a report on MediaMatters accused the platform of “facilitating” Shroyer’s promotion of a rally that would violate Texas’ social distancing measures and stay-at-home orders… According to that report, Shroyer organized a rally, scheduled to take place on April 18, to protest the social distancing measures in place, and @banneddotvideo retweeted one of his posts about the demonstration. This, the report says, is in violation of Twitter’s rules that probits posts that ‘could place people at a higher risk of transmitting COVID-19.’.. Under Twitter’s rules, users will be asked to delete tweets that could contribute to the spread of the virus, including jokes, denial of “expert guidance” and “established scientific facts about transmission,” unproven cures for the infection, “impersonating a government or health official or organization,” and causing panic with unverified claims.”

From the Official-Global-State-Propaganda Desk: COVID-19 storm strengthens across Europe, controlling transmission everywhere, essential: Tedros – ” ‘The next few weeks will be critical for Europe,’ he said. ‘Make no mistake, despite this spring weather, we remain in the midst of a storm.’ It is imperative that people not let down their guard… As physical distancing and lockdowns to slow and stop COVID-19 transmission are affecting lives and livelihoods, he said Governments and health authorities must come up with answers to identify when, under what conditions and how to consider a safe transition through a gradual shift in measures. (Note: a constant and ongoing “gradual shift in measures” will be required to maintain the illusion of REAL CRISIS)… Providing a global perspective, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus emphasized that almost 2 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported to the world health body. More than 123,000 have died, an “alarming and tragic” increase from when he briefed Missions last week… He outlined WHO’s new strategy update for countries as they consider lifting social and economic restrictions. Extreme caution must be taken. ‘If done too quickly, we risk a resurgence that could be even worse than our present situation’, he warned.” – Question: Is “Tedros” possibly talking about a resurgence in Fascism here?

LOCKDOWN SHOWDOWN (2h 13min) – The HighWire w/ Del Bigtree – Del covers evidence that Fauci may have surpressed an NIH study from 2015 that found that HydroxyChloraquine was effective in vitro against SARS-COV, and that there may have been a large number of people in the U.S. infected with Covid as early as last November.

Syrian Army, Russian Forces To Establish Helicopter Base In Eastern Raqqa – “Citing a source in the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Step News Agency claimed that the base will include ammo and supplies depots, logistic and military installations as well as barracks for Syrian service members… ‘The establishment of a helicopter landing zone in that area aims to ensure the continued delivery of military and logistical supplies by air from the areas controlled by Syrian regime forces to their forces in the north very quickly,’ the agency’s report reads… The army liberated Madan and its surroundings from ISIS in September of 2017 with direct support from the Russian Aerospace Forces.”

Eric Holder: Coronavirus an ‘Opportunity’ to Change Voting System Forever – Former Obama official calls for prepaid mail-in ballots, absentee voting – by Daniel Newton – – ““Coronavirus gives us an opportunity to revamp our electoral system so that it permanently becomes more inclusive and becomes easier for the American people to access,” Holder said, according to Time Magazine… The move is something many Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, are calling for. But the former attorney general failed to highlight any concerns regarding voter fraud but asserted exceptions made to the voting process amid the coronavirus should be permanent.”

There will be no “exit” from “full lockdown” until a vaccine is found for COVID-19, a top UK health official has warned – “There will be no “exit” from “full lockdown” until a vaccine is found for COVID-19, a top UK health official has warned. British Health Minister Nadine Dorries said Wednesday night that people need to “stop asking about an ‘exit strategy.’ … ‘There is only one way we can ‘exit’ full lockdown and that is when we have a vaccine,’ Dorries blasted on Twitter.”

WHO (Who?) Concerned About Confinement Measures in Poorest Countries – “The UN agency has replaced the expression “social distancing” with “physical distancing” to emphasize the importance of human contact… The World Health Organization (WHO) director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus Thursday acknowledged that physical distancing “is almost impossible” in poor countries and asked their governments to exercise caution when imposing confinements.” Comment: They care so much it hurts.

“Protesting is Non-Essential” – Police Make Tyrannical Claim as Citizens Demand Economy Reopen – by Matt Agorist – – “During the protest, the police department filmed their officers ordering the crowd to disperse as their commands fell on deaf ears… ‘You are in violation of the executive order,’ said a police captain. ‘You are posing a risk to public health. If you do not disperse, you will be taken and processed at Wake County jail.’.. Every 15 minutes during the protest, roughly 50 cars honked their horns in unison… ‘You should be ashamed of yourself,’ said one protester… ‘Are you goons of Cooper or servants of the people?’ said another, in reference to governor Roy Cooper’s executive order… ‘We are in violation of Comrade Cooper’s order,’ said Leonard Harrison of Mebane. ‘If I get locked up today, I’m OK with that. As North Carolinians, we need to get back to work.’.. One person did get locked up, however, and that was Monica Faith Ussery, 51, of Holly Springs. She was charged with violating the executive order to stay at home… ‘I have a right to peacefully assemble,’ she said as officers led her away, her hands bound with a zip tie. “God bless America.” ”

NATO in Arms to “Fight Coronavirus”– by Manlio Dinucci – – “While NATO is committed to “fighting coronavirus” in Europe, two of the major European Allies, France and Great Britain, sent their warships to the Caribbean… The amphibious assault ship Dixmund sailed on April 3 from Toulon to French Guiana for what President Macron calls “an unprecedented military operation“. called “Resilience“, in the framework of the “war to coronavirus“… The two European ships will take position in the same Caribbean waters near Venezuela, where the war fleet is arriving – with the most modern coastal combat ships (also built by Italian Leonardo Company for US Navy) and thousands of marines – sent by President Trump officially to stop drug trafficking… He accuses Venezuelan President Maduro of ‘taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis to increase the drug trafficking, he finances his narco-state with’. The purpose of the operation, supported by NATO, is to strengthen the embargo tightening to economically strangle Venezuela.”

In Dramatic Move, Merkel Announces Decision To Start Removing Coronavirus Shutdown Measures – “On April 15, German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced a decision to start removing coronavirus lockdown measures in the coming weeks… Germany will reopen many of its shops on April 20 and some of its schools from May 4 in all 16 federal states of the country. Under the decision, Merkel said, stores up to 800 square metres will be allowed to reopen once they have “plans to maintain hygiene”… Heads of some regions, as well as the leaders of large enterprises, who pointed out the negative economic consequences of the lockdown, insisted on the quarantine curtailment. However, the Ministry of Health opposed. Therefore, it was decided to easy restrictions mainly for small and medium-sized businesses.”

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Expands Its Forces With Three New Brigades Thanks To Ceasefire Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) has expanded its forces with three new brigades, taking advantage of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib… In an official statement released on April 14, the terrorist group listed the new brigades as it follows: ● The Talhah ibn Ubaydullah Brigade, led by Abu Hafs Binnish; ● The Ali ibn Abi Talib Brigade, led by Abu Baker Mheen; ● The Zubayr ibn al-Awam Brigade, led by Abu Mohamad Shura… HTS didn’t reveal why the new brigades were formed or any information about the number of fighters in their ranks.”

Kremlin. The Awakening – “On April 15, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a new package of measures to support Russia’s economy hit by consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak and the following lockdown… Putin announced a direct financial support to businesses hit hardest by the nationwide lockdown, including small and medium-sized businesses and airlines… The announced measures include: ● Monthly state payments to small and medium-sized businesses for every employee in April and May, provided firms maintain 90% of their workforce. The payment is 12,130 rubles ($160) for an employee per month; ● The federal government allocates a package of 200 billion rubles ($2.6 billion) of support for regional budgets; ● At least 23 billion rubles ($307 million) of government support for airlines… The federal government will reform the government-backed system of interest-free salary loans for firms. The reform is aimed at providing an easier access to loans by businesses… It looks like the Russian government has analyzed the economic-support measures employed by Germany and developed its own variant.”

Militants Surrendered to Syrian Army Say Were Trained on US Military Base – Russian Military—russian-military/ – “A group of 27 militants who surrendered to the Syrian army said they had been trained at the US military base, Rear Adm. Oleg Zhuravlev, the head of the Russian Defence Ministry’s centre for the Syrian reconciliation, said during a briefing on Wednesday… The US also provided them with weapons and vehicles, he added… ‘As a result of the clash, the militants who broke through lost three pickups, 27 people escaped, they are currently under the protection of Syrian government forces in Palmyra. They surrendered dozens of small arms, grenade launchers and heavy machine guns, including Western-made ones’, Zhuravlev said… “‘ccording to the testimony of the members of the illegal armed groups who surrendered to the government, the Americans provided them with pickup vehicles and weapons. US instructors trained them to carry out sabotage at oil and gas and transport infrastructure, as well as organise terrorist acts in the territory controlled by the Syrian government forces’, he said.”

What NO ONE is Saying About The Corona Crisis (8 min) – by James Corbett – Please listen up, particularly if you believe that everything with the Global Lockdown is “just fine.”

Bill Gates and Intellectual Ventures Funds Microchip Implant Vaccine Technology – by Celeste McGovern – Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated more than $21 million towards developing a vaccine technology that uses a tattoo-like mechanism which injects invisible nanoparticles under the skin that is now being tested in a vaccine against the virus that causes COVID-19... The microneedle technology is also being wed to injectable technology, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which embeds under the skin a vaccination record visible by near infrared light that can be read by smartphone technology… The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding the technologies with aims to enable them in “house-to-house” vaccine campaigns undertaken by people with “minimal training.”.. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh reported in their study published April 1 in EBiomedicine, a Lancet Journal, that their microneedle patch vaccine against the SARS CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 ‘prompted robust antibody production in the mice within two weeks.’.. The patches resemble a spiky piece of Velcro, with hundreds of tiny microneedles made of sugar. The needles prick just into the skin and quickly dissolve, releasing the vaccine into the tiny abrasions and inducing a potent immune cell response despite the minute amount of the vaccine material – far more potent than an intramuscular injection… Another study funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and published in December, 2019 by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Institute of Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and the Global Good, Intellectual Ventures Laboratory in Bellevue, WA, describes how “near-infrared quantum dots” can be implanted under the skin along with a vaccine to encode information for “decentralized data storage and bio-sensing.”.. ‘To maximize the utility of this technology for vaccination campaigns, we aimed to create a platform compatible with microneedle-delivered vaccines that could reliably encode data on an individual for at least five years after administration,’ said the MIT paper, titled Biocompatible near-infrared quantum dots delivered to the skin by microneedle patches record vaccination. ‘In addition, this system also needed to be highly biocompatible, deliver a sufficient amount of dye after an application time of 2 min or less, and be detectable using a minimally adapted smartphone.’ ”

New York City adds thousands to COVID-19 death toll who never tested positive for the virus – “Without the 3,778 new “probable” deaths of individuals who were not confirmed to have had the virus, the count would be at 6,589 using the criteria requested by the CDC for only counting people who tested positive for the virus… In a statement explaining the revised numbers, New York Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot said, ‘We are focused on ensuring that every New Yorker who died because of COVID-19 gets counted.’ She told the Times, ‘We are more than happy to report on probables.’ ” (emphasis added)

Couple Fined For Posting Old Vacation Photos During Lockdown – by Mike Santorini – – “Garry and Jaz Mott were looking through old photos at their home in Victoria when they decided to post some from a 2019 trip to a coastal town in eastern Victoria… A few days after posting the photos, authorities showed up at the couple’s door and fined them $1,000 each, warning that if they ‘posted any more photos,’ they would ‘be arrested,’ according to the Independent… Police said the couple’s decision to go ‘for a drive to Lakes Entrance’ violated the country’s restrictions on non-essential travel… The couple was fined for ‘failure to comply with a direction given to a person in the exercise of a power under an authorization given under section 199.’.. ‘Police are not specifically monitoring social media accounts to identify breaches of the Chief Health Officer directives,’ the spokesperson said. ‘In general, police will follow up and investigate the circumstances surrounding individual potential breaches reported by the public.’ ”

The Evidence That COVID Was a US Biowarfare Attack on China – by OLDMICROBIOLOGIST – – “[The following is the republication of several long and very detailed comments by an unidentified purported expert on biowarfare that originally appeared on a recent thread of the Saker blogsite.] … [Update: an investigation strongly suggests that the author’s claims regarding his personal background and professional expertise are accurate.] … ‘I’ll throw my 2 cents in here. I have zero proof other than my gut feeling that this is a bioweapon. I do have 40 year of biodefense research experience behind me and worked at Fort Detrich on bacterial vaccines where I developed my own aerosol infection routes and developed multi-species models of pathogenesis to establish correlates of immunity.’ ” – Comment: This is valuable, IMO, mostly because the author outlines a lot of information about the nature of the U.S. Bio-weapons consortiums.

Moscow’s digital pass system, which was introduced on April 13 to enforce the COVID-19 lockdown measures, seems to have some issues… According to the city’s coronavirus response center, Moscow authorities rejected 900,000 applications for digital lockdown passes in the pass system’s first day of operation because residents allegedly entered incorrect or inaccurate information. At the same time, the city issued 3.2 million passes for residents to leave their homes on April 13… The head of the Moscow Government’s information technology department, Eduard Lysenko noted that citizens that provided “false information ‘will be held administratively liable’. Lysenko also called on the city’s residents to note request passes “just in case”…”

M.I.T. PhD Blows Fauci & Co Inc. Out of the Water – by Peter Tocci – – “I offer the video linked at the end with some “reservations” of sorts. The first is that I wish there were ‘sources’ given for some of the assertions and ‘accusations, although due to his education, experience and background, the speaker is an authority in his own right. Anyway, it should go a long way toward fathoming “CronyVirus” nonsense… Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai (inventor of email) is an MIT PhD with 4 degrees, one in Biological Engineering, who studies the immune system nearly every day. I checked him out at the MIT website. He’s the real deal. Here’s his website:… He says Fauci is a long-term criminal across many presidents, who ‘…should be indicted, and should be fired and all sorts of charges should be leveled at him…’ ”

Attack of the “Corona Bat Virus!” What Science REALLY Says About It! – by Kent Heckenlively, JD – – ” ‘An experiment that created a hybrid version of a bat coronavirus – one related to the virus that causes SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) – has triggered renewed debate over whether engineering lab variants of viruses with possible pandemic potential is worth the risks… In an article published in Nature Medicine on 9 November, scientists investigated a virus called SHC014, which is found in horseshoe bats in China. The researchers created a chimaeric virus, made up of a surface protein of SHC014 and the backbone of a SARS virus that had been adapted to grow in mice and to mimic human disease. The chimaera infected human airway cells – proving that the surface protein of SHC014 has the necessary structure to bind to a key receptor on the cells and to infect them. It also caused disease in mice, but did not kill them.’ ” – Comment: This fine article by Heckenlively is discussed in the video below.

Here’s why Bill Gates wants indemnity… Are you willing to take the risk? – by Robert Kennedy, Jr. – – ” 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, especially in their lungs. Researchers had seen this same “enhanced immune response” during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1960s. Two children died… In this video footage, Offit, Hotez and even Anthony Fauci (in an unguarded moment), warn that any new coronavirus vaccine could trigger lethal immune reactions “vaccine enhancement” when vaccinated people come in contact with the wild virus. Instead of proceeding with caution, Fauci has made the reckless choice to fast track vaccines, partially funded by Gates, without critical animal studies before moving into human clinical trials that could provide early warning of runaway immune response… Gates (in the video) is so worried about the danger of adverse events that he says vaccines shouldn’t be distributed until governments agree to indemnity against lawsuits. On February 4, 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, there were only 11 active CV cases in the USA, yet the U.S. quietly pushed through Federal regulations giving coronavirus vaccine makers full immunity from liability.”

Has Sweden Found the Right Solution to the Coronavirus? – by John Fund & Joel Hay – – “If the COVID-19 pandemic tails off in a few weeks, months before the alarmists claim it will, they will probably pivot immediately and pat themselves on the back for the brilliant social-distancing controls that they imposed on the world. They will claim that their heroic recommendations averted total calamity. Unfortunately, they will be wrong; and Sweden, which has done almost no mandated social distancing, will probably prove them wrong… Lots of people are rushing to discredit Sweden’s approach, which relies more on calibrated precautions and isolating only the most vulnerable than on imposing a full lockdown. While gatherings of more than 50 people are prohibited and high schools and colleges are closed, Sweden has kept its borders open as well as its preschools, grade schools, bars, restaurants, parks, and shops… President Trump has no use for Sweden’s nuanced approach. Last Wednesday, he smeared it in a spectacular fashion by saying he’d heard that Sweden ‘gave it a shot, and they saw things that were really frightening, and they went immediately to shutting down the country.’ He and the public-health experts who told him this were wrong on both counts and would do better to question their approach.”

UK Cops on the Prowl for “Social Gatherings” Bust Down Door, Break Into Lonely Man’s Apartment (VIDEO) – Warrants are so 2019 – – “Clearly this was all the resident’s fault. If he had nothing to hide why didn’t he just open the door, instead forcing the police to destroy his property and force their way in? This is just like when Saddam Hussein tricked us into thinking he had WMDs forcing us to invade. (satire)”

The Quango and the Collapse – By commissioning Wall Street behemoth BlackRock to manage its corporate debt purchase program the Federal Reserve has outsourced bail-outs to a key component of Wall Street’s corruption – by Steve Brown – – “Because there is so little known about the SMCCF and the PMCCF corporate credit facilities and how they will operate, the Federal Reserve must publish full details of all contracts managed by BlackRock. Since the Fed quango is using these acronym programs to obfuscate and make their operations opaque, Congress must require the Fed to publish full details of the contracts including the current and future investment process operated by BlackRock. Congress must be prepared to confront Mr Mnuchin and his cronies too, with some hope to divulge explicit investment program details… The Fed chairman and Treasury secretary must testify before Congress about these BlackRock-managed programs, including provision of stated goals where changes, additions, or amendments to the programs must be publicly revealed, and Congress must publicly televise the hearings. The Fed must detail conflict of interest policies and procedures and audit BlackRock to ensure it abides by them, where a list of individuals executing the IMC (Investment Management Control) by BlackRock is mandatory.”

Fauci: I ‘Can’t Guarantee’ Physical Vote Will Be Safe in November – Trump said that mail-in voting is ‘horrible. It’s corrupt,’ last week.- by Daniel Newton – – “The Democrat political consultant, James Carville, said Republicans would “literally kill people to stay in power.” A political scientist at the University of Florida, Michael McDonald, says that Wisconsin could prove to be a “canary in a coal mine” for November, according to NPR‘The real outstanding question is whether or not we’re going to have an election system that can deliver for the voters and whether or not we’re going to be able to manage everybody being able to vote in November,’ he said… Patrick Ruffini, a partner at a Republican polling firm, said mail-in voting does not appear to favor any political party.”

Before Virus Outbreak, a Cascade of Warnings Went Unheeded – Government exercises, including one last year, made clear that the U.S. was not ready for a pandemic like the coronavirus. But little was done – by David E. Sanger, Eric Lipton, Eileen Sullivan and Michael Crowley – – “That scenario, code-named “Crimson Contagion” and imagining an influenza pandemic, was simulated by the Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services in a series of exercises that ran from last January to August… The simulation’s sobering results — contained in a draft report dated October 2019 that has not previously been reported — drove home just how underfunded, underprepared and uncoordinated the federal government would be for a life-or-death battle with a virus for which no treatment existed… The draft report, marked “not to be disclosed,” laid out in stark detail repeated cases of “confusion” in the exercise. Federal agencies jockeyed over who was in charge. State officials and hospitals struggled to figure out what kind of equipment was stockpiled or available. Cities and states went their own ways on school closings.”

Coronavirus Provides Dictators and Oligarchs with a Dream Come True – by Vera Sharav – – ““As the coronavirus pandemic brings the world to a juddering halt and anxious citizens demand action, leaders across the globe are invoking executive powers and seizing virtually dictatorial authority with scant resistance…As the new laws broaden state surveillance, allow governments to detain people indefinitely and infringe on freedoms of assembly and expression, they could also shape civic life, politics and economies for decades to come.” The New York Times, March 31, 2020″

Signs of Stabilisation Do Not Mean Pandemic is Over – WHO’s Official—whos-official/ – “First signs of stabilisation do not mean the coronavirus pandemic is over, now is the time to be vigilant, Michael J. Ryan, Executive Director of the World Health Organisation’s Health Emergencies Programme, said Monday… “We have certainly seen a stabilisation in a number of countries in the direction of travel of the epidemic curve, and the intensity of increase has stabilised, and some countries have begun to see a pretty consistent drop in a number of hospital admissions but then we should start to see that followed through,” Ryan said. ‘But by no means does it mean it’s over. Now is the time for vigilance, now is the time to double down,’ Ryan added… The WHO official has warned of a possible spike in new cases once the countries start coming out of lockdowns.”

Trump claims he, not governors, has authority on opening state economies – by Morgan Chalfant – – ” ‘For the purpose of creating conflict and confusion, some in the Fake News Media are saying that it is the Governors decision to open up the states, not that of the President of the United States & the Federal Government. Let it be fully understood that this is incorrect,’ Trump tweeted Monday morning… ‘It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue,’ Trump continued. ‘A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!’.. However, legal experts who spoke to The Hill said that, while Trump can issue federal regulations to prevent the spread of diseases, he does not have the authority to reverse a public health restriction put in place at the state or local level.”

From the This-Is-The-Way-They-Roll Desk: Fauci: ‘Extraordinary Risk’ of Further COVID Spread If US Reopens Too Soon – by Ken Bredemeier – – “The top U.S. infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, warned Sunday there is an “extraordinary risk” of the further spread of the ravaging coronavirus if the United States is reopened to business and returned to a sense of normalcy too quickly on May 1, as President Donald Trump is considering… Fauci told CNN, ‘It’s not going to be a light switch’ to regenerate U.S. commerce as government recommendations for safe distancing between people end on April 30… He held out hope that ‘at least in some ways’ the country could return to work and routine day-to-day activities next month, but said it is likely to be different in various parts of the country… That depends, he said, on the number of coronavirus cases in specific communities and whether testing has shown that large majorities of people are not infected.”

COVID-19 Crisis In Russia: Economic Turbulence And Digital Authoritarianism – “The financial support program for citizens and businesses is also facing apparent difficulties. On April 10, Central Bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina said that banks are failing to approve the majority of appeals for financial support, including cheap loans and repayment holidays… Earlier, the government ordered banks to offer a 6-month break in repayments to borrowers who see their income fall by 30% or more. However, lenders rejected 65,000 of the 76,000 requests they received, even as the number of appeals more than doubled… Moreover, a large part of Moscow residents that is in need of such a compensation cannot get it because they don’t fit the formal requirements. The compensation is proposed only for persons who have a permanent registration in Moscow and officially worked 60 days in 2019. A large part of people living in Moscow does have only a temporary registration or even does not have a registration in the city… Another side of the story is that the lockdown measures and pass systems unintentionally led to the growth of street criminal. Thousands of gastarbeiters that have no savings, registration in Moscow, and cannot officially get digital passes, work and move across the city remain on the streets. Even the Russian President’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, confirmed this fact. However, Peskov said, there is no need to ‘dramatize’ the situation.”

Meet The Companies Poised To Build The Kushner-Backed “Coronavirus Surveillance System” – by Whitney Webb – – “The three companies behind the leading proposal to build a “national coronavirus surveillance system”, an initiative spearheaded by Jared Kushner, boast deep ties to Google, intelligence-linked venture capital firms as well as one of last year’s eerily predictive “pandemic” simulations… This proposed nationwide network, according to that report, would be used to better inform government decision-making regarding which parts of the United States may “safely relax social-distancing rules” and those that may not. Politico treaded lightly in its discussion of such a system’s likely effects on civil liberties, but did note that some critics have compared this proposed system ‘to the Patriot act enacted after the 9/11 attacks.’ ”

Democrat Governor Orders Police to Record License Plates Of Churchgoers, Mandates Them To 14-Day Quarantine – by David Lindfield – – “According to a report from the Daily Wire, Democrat Governor, Andy Beshear, Kentucky, ‘said local officials are being directed to record license plate numbers of participants to pass to local health departments.’.. ‘Those who attend these gatherings can expect public health officials to show up at their doors with mandates that they self-quarantine for 14 days,’ the governor said… ‘If you’re going to expose yourself to this virus, it’s not fair to everybody else out there that you might spread it to,’ the Democrat said Friday. ‘Understand, this is the only way we can ensure your decision doesn’t kill somebody else.’ ”

Singapore Oil Trading Giant On Verge Of Collapse After Banks Freeze Credit Lines – by Tyler Durden – – “That might be changing, however, because the longer global economic activity fails to rebound and the longer commodity prices remain at their current depressed levels, the more the global liquidity crisis will transform into a solvency crisis, hitting some of the most prominent commodity traders in the world… such as Singapore’s iconic oil trader Hin Leong Trading, which according to Bloomberg has appointed advisers to help in talks with banks as some of them freeze credit lines to the firm… Yesterday, Bloomberg first reported that at least two lenders won’t issue new letters of credit to Hin Leong amid concerns over its ability to repay debt; as a result, the firm appointed advisers this week to help negotiate with banks for more time to resolve its finances. Letters of credit are a critical financial backstop for commodity traders, used as way of financing critical short-term trade. A bank issues the so-called L/C on behalf of the buyer as a guarantee of payment to the seller. Once the goods have exchanged hands, the buyer repays the lender… Hin Leong suddenly finds itself without providers of L/Cs – for reasons still not exactly known – without which it is effectively paralyzed as it needs to front cash for any transactions, something no modern commodity merchant can afford to do.”

The Coronavirus State: New Zealand and Authoritarian Rumblings – by Dr. Binoy Kampmark – – “It’s all about the lever of balance. Laws made for public protection, within which public health features prominently, provide grounds for derogation authorities can exploit. Like plasticine, the scope of power during times of an emergency extends. But at what point does a state of public health become a police state? In time, we may find these to be not only indistinguishable but synonymous; the body will be the site where liberties are subordinate to regulation, movement, medical testing, and directives made in the name of health.”

‘Self-Isolation’ Sobyanin Style: Moscow Authorities Introduce Virus Quarantine Passes Drastically Limiting Freedoms Of Residents – “According to Sobyanin, Moscow will gradually introduce a digital pass system to enforce ‘self-isolation’ rules (imposed under a threat of various administrative punishments) starting April 14… ● The first stage will include the introduction of passes for trips to work; ● The second stage will introduce special passes for other trips; ● The third stage will introduce them for trips within the region.”

A plan to defeat coronavirus finally emerges, but it’s not from the White House – by Lena H. Sun, William Wan and Yasmeen Abutaleb – – “In recent days, dozens of leading voices have coalesced around the test-trace-quarantine framework, including former FDA commissioners for the Trump and George W. Bush administrations, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and top experts at Johns Hopkins, Columbia and Harvard universities… On Wednesday, former president Barack Obama weighed in, tweeting: ‘Social distancing bends the curve and relieves some pressure. … But in order to shift off current policies, the key will be a robust system of testing and monitoring — something we have yet to put in place nationwide.’.. And Friday, Apple and Google unveiled a joint effort on new tools that would use smartphones to aid in contact tracing… In America, testing — while still woefully behind — is ramping up. And households across the country have learned over the past month how to quarantine. But when it comes to the second pillar of the plan — the labor-intensive work of contact tracing — local health departments lack the necessary staff, money and training… Experts and leaders in some states say remedying that weakness should be a priority and health departments should be rapidly shored up so that they are ready to act in coming weeks as infections nationwide begin to decrease. In a report scheduled for release Friday, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials — which represents state health departments — estimate 100,000 additional contact tracers are needed and call for $3.6 billion in emergency funding from Congress.”

From the Propaganda-Rag-Of-Record: Coronavirus Live Updates: Trump Calls Relaxing Restrictions a Major Decision as Projections Warn of a Possible Infection Spike – “Trump called relaxing the restrictions his “biggest decision” as federal projections warn of a possible infection spike… As new federal projections warned of a spike in coronavirus infections if shelter-in-place orders were lifted after only 30 days, President Trump said Friday that the question of when to relax federal social distancing guidelines was “the biggest decision I’ll ever make.”.. As a practical matter, the stay-at-home orders that have kept much of the nation hunkered down have been made by governors and mayors at the state and local levels. But many governors were moved to act in part by the federal guidelines meant to slow the spread of the coronavirus.”

Surgeon General: Most of US won’t be ready to open by May 1 – by Morgan Chalfant – – “Asked whether May 1 is a realistic timetable for reopening on Fox News, Adams said that “some places,” where there is strong surveillance in place, would be able to consider reopening at the beginning of May but acknowledged that most of the country would not be in that category… ‘There are places around the country that have seen consistently low levels and as we ramp up testing and can feel more confident that these places actually can do surveillance and can do public health follow-up, some places will be able to think about opening on May 1,’ Adams said… ‘Most of the country will not, to be honest with you, but some will. That’s how we’ll reopen the country: place by place, bit by bit, based on the data,’ the surgeon general continued.” (emphases added)

Corona: creating the illusion of a pandemic through diagnostic tests – by Jon Rappoport – – “Translation: On the one hand, we claim the test can “generally” detect the presence of the COVID virus in a patient. But we admit that ‘the agent detected’ on the test, by which we mean COVID, ‘may not be the definite cause of disease.’.. We also admit that, unless the patient has an acute infection, we can’t find COVID. Therefore, the idea of “asymptomatic patients” confirmed by the test is nonsense. And even though a positive test for COVID may not indicate the actual cause of disease, all positive tests must be reported—and they will be counted as “COVID cases.” Regardless.”

Congressman rejects Dr. Fauci’s ‘certificates of immunity’ suggestion “how about no” – by Mike Santorini – – “Dr. Fauci gave the idea during a Friday interview on CNN’s “New Day,” saying the “antibody tests,” which can help identify those already infected with the disease, would be particularly important for medical workers and other first responders and said the plan is “being discussed.”.. ‘You know, that’s possible. It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not — this is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit under certain circumstances,’ Fauci told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota…’“If their antibody test is positive, one can formulate strategies about whether or not they would be at risk or vulnerable to getting re-infected.”

CoronaVirus’ new genotype?» – Four international media repoted the strange facts in small city of Bergamo province – by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio – – “«Doctors fighting infections in Lombardy have revealed new COVID-19 features. In the Italian city of Gromo, there have been several cases where people infected with coronavirus, without any serious sign of the disease, simply fell asleep and did not wake up. In one of the local hospice where volunteer doctors work, also from Russia, at least five of these strange patients died on the last day»… «On March 31, 2020, Fabio Terzi, Mayor of Albino, during an interview with Corriere TV, declares that following an analysis conducted with registry officials, there was a strong discrepancy between the official data and the data. real that does not allow to establish the real cause of death of 90 fellow citizens »remarks the entrepreneur who, in response to one of our emails, also signals another further anomaly highlighted by the Mayor of Bergamo, Giorgio Gori… «Gori also issued statements in which he referred to 200 deaths in his municipality for which the causes of death were not specified… «In special cases such as deaths reported by Russian doctors, autopsies should then be arranged – adds the entrepreneur – If the willingness to allow all possible investigations is not clear, the attempt to hide something serious will be evident, such as experiments with radio frequencies».” (emphasis added)

As cases balloon, Louisiana pastor defies orders, hosts hundreds at church – Tony Spell says if any parishioners die they will at least have done so as ‘free people’; Louisiana is currently the US state fifth most affected by the coronavirus – – “Tony Spell was charged on March 31 with six misdemeanors for flouting an executive order by the governor two days earlier. But he did so again this week maintaining it was preferable to worship and take one’s chances than submit to “tyranny.”.. Spell told TMZ Wednesday: ‘People have been locked in their homes for 23 days now like prisoners. The only vent that they have for their emotion is coming to the house of God and worshiping like free people.’ ”

Days Before Easter, California County Makes Going to Church a Crime – by Jared Harris – – “With the coronavirus pandemic burning its way across the globe, Christians everywhere are looking forward to Easter — a celebration of life, the faith and the resurrection of Jesus Christ… For worshipers in California’s San Bernardino County, however, the very act of going to church is now a crime… According to an April 7 order from the county’s health officer, even drive-up services are now considered a forbidden way to worship…’“This guidance does allow faith based services that are provided through streaming or other technology,’ the order reads, ‘while individuals remain in their homes, but does not allow individuals to leave their homes for driving parades or drive-up services, or for picking up non-essential items.’..’Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a crime punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.’ ” (emphasis added) – Question: Just what jurisdiction does this “order” rely on for its enforceability?

Government To Decide What Items Are Essential Purchases And What Things You’re Not Allowed To Buy – by Daisy Luther – – “This senseless crackdown not only makes things even more unpleasant, but it takes away even more streams of revenue for struggling businesses. And more than that, it’s limiting our ability to be as self-reliant as possible, leaving people to fight it out at the grocery store for dwindling resources with few options for creating our own food supplies.”

In March, US Deaths From COVID-19 Totaled Less Than 2% Of All Deaths – by Ryan McMaken – – “In recent decades, flu season has often peaked sometime from January to March, and this is a major driver in total deaths. The average daily number of deaths from December through March is over eight thousand… So far, total death data is too preliminary to know if there has been any significant increase in total deaths as a result of COVID-19, and this is an important metric, because it gives us some insight into whether or not COVID-19 is driving total death numbers well above what would otherwise be expected… Indeed, according to some sources, it is not clear that total deaths have increased significantly as a result of COVID-19. In a March 30 article for The Spectator, former UK National Health Service pathologist John Lee noted that the current number of deaths from COVID-19 does not indicate that the UK is experiencing ‘excess deaths.’ “

The Worst Economic Collapse Ever? – by Tuomas Malinen – – “Country after country has reported extremely dark economic numbers. The gigantic jobless claims, 6.6 million from the U.S. last week, are just the tip of the iceberg. For example, the service sector PMIs have been simply ghastly across the globe. We are now in a crisis of epic proportions… But, how massive can the crisis eventually get? Since our inception, in 2012, we have contemplated three scenarios as a part of our quarterly forecasts. While we have not referred to them in each report, we have repeated them periodically. They are: the optimistic, the most probable and the pessimisticBut at this point our main worry is the approaching realization of the pessimistic, or the worst, scenario. It’s likelihood, while still low, is increasing fast in our estimate… Underpinning its severity is not the virus, but the fragility of the global economy.”

Encounters Of An Average American Nobody With The ‘Curious’ COVID New World – by Doug “Uncola” Lynn – – “Last week, I read an online article in my local paper telling of a 68-year-old gentleman who died from COVID-19. In the article, it described how the man had retired in the last year because of cancer. Then, two days later, my wife asked me if I had read the article. When I said that I had, she responded: Scary, huh? He was healthy.’.. I replied:What do you mean? He had underlying issues.’.. And when we logged-on to read the article again, it was tagged as ‘updated 7 hours ago’ and many of the words I’d read two nights before were…. gone… In the paragraph where it said he retired, it mentioned nothing of his cancer and instead described how the man was ‘active and enjoyed riding his bike.’.. Of course, even a tin-foil-hat-wearing blogger like me would have a hard time believing that any conspiratorial pressure could be applied to my local paper. Perhaps the family requested the change or the original article was in error. It’s hard to say… But I do know what I read… Everything is suspect and it’s not difficult to differentiate between reporting and propaganda; because there’s an agenda behind propaganda. Always an agenda. That said, it is difficult to discern truth in a bubble – which is basically what America has become – an electronic bubble full of colorful programming and strategic deception… You can call me a conspiracy theorist and that’s fine; although I prefer critical thinker. For example, is it a “conspiracy” when a pandemic “exercise” undertaken by specific “players” is publically known? As stated in my last article:… ‘…there have been many oddities during the Coronavirus outbreak. One peculiarity is how the same players consistently appear to advance the narrative; to wit, Bill Gates, John Hopkins University, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO). These show up almost everywhere Coronavirus tales are told and, perhaps unsurprisingly, participated in the October 2019 Event 201 Pandemic Exercise – a near-exact simulation which took place a mere few weeks before the current COVID-19 outbreak went viral globally… Even on the Event 201 website the ‘prominent individuals from global business, government, and public health‘ who participated were identified as “players” which, in fact, should be interpreted as practicing for the real thing.”

“Black Swan” Hedge Fund Advised By Nassim Taleb Returns 3,612% In March – by Tyler Durden – – ” During the financial crisis, when most hedge funds suffered catastrophic returns forcing many to gate their investors, Mark Spitznagel, who is perhaps best known for the phrase “I spend all my time thinking about looming disaster”, made what the WSJ reported was “huge gains” with his “black swan”-targeting hedge fund Universa Investments, which not incidentally is advised by Nassim Taleb. Then, in August 2015 during the infamous ETFlash crash, his fund reportedly made a gain of about $1 billion, or 20%, during a single, turbulent day when the VIX briefly broke and ETF trading went haywire for several hours… ‘It is a good time to reflect again on how we have performed for you as a risk mitigation strategy, if for no other reason than to give you some reassurance and even solace following one of the scariest months for markets on record’ Spitznagel writes in his investor letter sent out to clients earlier today, and then delivers the good news: the fund generated a 3,612% return on invested capital in March, and a phenomenal 4,144% year to date.”

States Use “Purge” Sirens, Fines And Arrests To Force People To Comply With Stay-At-Home Orders – from MassPrivate! – – “Crowley Police will ticket people for going outside without documentation: ‘After several days of this, the police department says they will begin giving out citations to violators. If you are headed to work or leaving work, you must have documentation from your employer.’.. In Louisville, Kentucky a judge has ordered that people who ignore stay-at-home orders to wear GPS ankle bracelets… In Vermont, the Attorney General’s Office ordered police to stop setting up checkpoints and roadblocks to detain motorists who do not comply with stay-at-home orders. In Maine, a Franklin County Sheriff said they will not arrest motorists who do not comply with stay-at-home orders, “this is not Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia where you are asked for your papers.”… In Massachusetts and Alabama the government is giving law enforcement the names of anyone suspected of having COVID-19… In New Jersey, the Bergen County DA’s Office ordered police to stop requiring suspected COVID-19 patients to post signs on their homes. Police in Pennsylvania fined a woman $200.00 for taking a drive, and in Baltimore, Maryland the National Guard is being used to enforce COVID-19 curfews… Megan Fox from PJ Media said, ‘Someone has to stand up to the unconstitutional directives that are being handed down daily by government officials and it will fall on the sheriffs to uphold what they know to be their legal and lawful duties, none of which involve trampling the rights of citizens.’.. We must remain vigilant and demand that the measures taken to stop COVID-19 are only temporary or we risk living in a country that suspends our Constitutional rights whenever they deem it necessary. ”

U.S. Air Force To Deploy 5 New Microwave And Laser Weapons For Field Testing – “The Air Force will be evaluating five systems including the Raytheon High Energy Laser (HELWS), Raytheon High Power Microwave (PHASER), and the AFRL Tactical High Power Operational Responder (THOR) drone killer. Which two other systems will be tested remains unclear… It is possible that the Self-Protect High Energy Laser Demonstrator (SHiELD) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) Program would also field a prototype, as it successfully carried out a test that shot down multiple air launched missiles in flight back in April 2019… The THOR was unveiled back in March, and it provided a live demonstration to reporters… The $15 million system disabled the unmanned aerial vehicle in a flash, sending it spiraling to the ground the moment the electromagnetic ray hit it.”

Homeless People Fined for Being Outside and Violating Social Distancing Orders – The tickets reportedly come along with a fine of up to $750, which homeless people are obviously unable to pay. – by John Vibes – – “Police Chief Eric Girt said that police were giving people warnings and gradually enforcing the social distancing orders over time. But he also said that writing tickets was up to the officer’s discretion… ‘We want compliance first. We certainly explained it to a number of people. Some people remain oppositional, so then we’re put in a spot where we may have to do enforcement and that’s obviously our last alternative,’ Girt told the Hamilton Spectator… In Los Angeles, California, homeless single mothers calling themselves “the reclaimers” have begun to occupy vacant homes to get themselves and their families off the streets during this dangerous time. Local officials have recognized the actions of the reclaimers and have said that they will be able to stay in the homes temporarily during the pandemic.” (emphasis added)

Horowitz: It’s time to end the great American COVID-19 police state – by Daniel Horowitz – – “Remember, if we don’t rise up now, these tyrants are just getting started. If you are wondering what is in store for us in the coming days, just look at what some other countries that were less free than we to begin with have been doing. Panama now requires men and women to go out for essential services only on alternating, days and nobody is allowed out on Sunday. Some eastern European countries are clamping down on freedom of speech… If you think this won’t happen in America, just step back and take stock of how much power has been seized in just three weeks… It’s one thing to declare a lockdown for 24 hours based on concern of an existential threat. But we are into the fourth week of this, and all the models that guided leaders were proven wrong from day one. Are we going to remain like frogs in boiling water?”

Another Must Watch: Henry Kissinger & Bill Gates Call For Mass Vaccination & Global Governance (42 min) – by Spiro Skouras – “We are in the middle of the worst global health pandemic of our lives according to the Media, the Government and the United Nations. We are witnessing an unprecedented global lockdown in response to the Coronavirus outbreak known as COVID19. The global population living in western countries have been taught for more than a generation to live in a constant state of fear ever since 9/11. We have been encouraged to sacrifice our liberty for a false sense of security, being conditioned more and more each day to rely on the state for protection and now many of us find ourselves relying on the state to pay our bills. Despite the government’s budget and deficit continuing to grow exponentially everyday… Some are beginning to see that there may be more to the official story than what we are led to believe. The very few may have seen this coming and are waiting for the next phase of what very well could be another step closer to global governance. The very men and women, the exact same individuals and government agencies, in addition to global institutions who stand to benefit the most, are the ones calling the shots… Welcome to COVID-1984 and the official rollout of the New World Order…” – Comment: A MAJOR (and risk-taking) contribution by Spiro to understanding the current agendas.

Susan Rice Crosses Line With New Attack On Trump, Says POTUS Has “Cost tens of thousands of American lives” – by J.C McCallum – – ” ‘This administration was not interested in pandemics. It was not prepared for pandemics. We now know that even during the Trump administration there were lots of reports, lots of warnings,’ said Rice before outlining what she would have done and then blamed Trump for tens of thousands of deaths… ‘Rather than moving immediately from very early January to do the things that we know we have to do, get in place the testing capacity, scale it up so that it’s widely available.’.. ‘And so, they didn’t do that. They waited two months.’.. ‘And those two months have meant the difference between many tens of thousands of Americans dying who might otherwise not have died.’ ” – Comment: It’s instructive to see the apparatchiks coming out of the woodwork in this time of “crisis.”

Aaand Its Gone… The Biggest Support For Asset Prices – by Lance Roberts – – “As John Authers previously noted: ‘For much of the last decade, companies buying their own shares have accounted for all net purchases. The total amount of stock bought back by companies since the 2008 crisis even exceeds the Federal Reserve’s spending on buying bonds over the same period as part of quantitative easing. Both pushed up asset prices.’.. In other words, between the Federal Reserve injecting a massive amount of liquidity into the financial markets, and corporations buying back their own shares, there have been effectively no other real buyers in the market… Interestingly, we warned previously: ‘The explosion of corporate debt in recent years will become problematic during the next bear market. As the deterioration in asset prices increases, many companies will be unable to refinance their debt, or worse, forced to liquidate. With the current debt-to-GDP ratio at historic highs, it is unlikely this will end mildly.’ “

Clarmond: The Virus Exposed That Treasury Collateral Is Anything But Stable – by Mustafa Zaidi, head of Research and Development at Clarmond Wealth – – “Given the Covid-19 test the upcoming SOFR system has shown vulnerability on two counts: first, collateral can be unstable and second, there are not enough trade dollars for settlements. The Fed will have to address the first by actively controlling the yield curve and the second by opening up substantial US$ swap lines to other central banks. The Fed’s balance sheet cannot be challenged so it will either the castrate levered / hedge fund money so they cannot destabilise the treasury market again or they will temporarily lift the leverage regulations on the banks, as the banks assist the Fed in its policy rather than take it on like a hedge fund… Our payment system is a credit system, and we need to have enough credit to settle our payments, even if we have no money. And this credit system needs a stable collateral and lots of US$s to work efficiently.(emphasis added)

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro Pens Open Letter to US Public – from TeleSur – – “In the text, President Nicolás Maduro rejected the threats of the Trump administration against Venezuela that seek to lead the region to an expensive, bloody and indefinite armed conflict… ” We in Venezuela do not want an armed conflict in our region. We want fraternal relationships, cooperation, exchange and respect,’ he said… He stated that the country cannot accept war threats, or blockades, nor the intention to install an international guardianship that violates sovereignty and ignores the advances of the last year in the political dialogue between the government and a large part of the Venezuelan opposition.”

COVID-19 Crisis In Russia: Federal Government Strikes Back – “Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has slammed regional authorities that closed administrative borders of their regions and restricited the movement and ordered to remove such restrictions… At a meeting with regional envoys on April 6, Mishustin emphasized that it is “unacceptable” for Russia’s regions to close their borders with other regions of the country… Earlier, Chechnya, Crimea, Tatarstan and some other regions imposed a de-facto regime of the ‘administrative’ self-isolation from the rest of the country under pretext of combating the COVID-19 outbreak. This decision faced a strong negative reaction among the local population because of its apparent negative impact to the social and economic situation in the country… These actions followed the announcement of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin of the country’s shutdown until April 30 in an adress to the nation on April 2. During the same adress, President Putin in fact provided regional authorities with additional powers (in fact emergency powers) that they have immidiately started exploiting.”

Fake Coronavirus Data, Fear Campaign. Spread of the COVID-19 Infection – by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky – – “The Unspoken Truth: Unprecedented Global Crisis – The unspoken truth is that the novel coronavirus provides a pretext to powerful financial interests and corrupt politicians to trigger the entire World into a spiral of mass unemployment, bankruptcy, extreme poverty and despair… This is the true picture of what is happening. “Planet Lockdown” is an encroachment on civil liberties and the “Right to Life”. Entire national economies are in jeopardy. In some countries martial law has been declared… Small and medium sized capital are slated to be eliminated. Big capital prevails.

From the Official-(Russian?)-State-Propaganda Desk: COVID-19 Death Toll in US Rises Above 10,000Johns Hopkins University – – “According to the university, which provides aggregate figures of the coronavirus disease outbreak across the globe, the total number of confirmed cases in the US since the start of the outbreak now stands at 338,995, the highest number of infections in any country, while the number of deaths has reached 10,335, the third-highest toll worldwide… Meanwhile, the number of COVD-19 cases in New York state has reached 130,689 on Monday, with 16,837 patients requiring hospitalisation.”

Gov. Newsom Confirms CA Is Providing Money For Illegal Alien Business Owners Not Covered By Stimulus – by David Lindfield – – “During a press conference on Friday, Newsom said, ‘[W]e always consider those that are documented, those that are undocumented, those that are living in mixed-status families,’.. ‘Just yesterday, I announced the work we are doing to help support small businesses. I very specifically mentioned in my remarks yesterday that there are many businesses, tens of thousands of businesses that do not and cannot get the support of the [Small Business Administration],’.. ‘Those individual businesses, we are making available these emergency grants through our IBank to do these micro-loans to provide access,’ He continued… The $350 billion in forgivable loans for businesses that employ less than 500 people are to be given to small businesses, who cannot fire their employees after receiving the funds, and must spend the money in a certain amount of time as to not gain interest, and lastly, they must be properly documented.” (emphases added)

From the COVID-1984 Desk: Health experts call for Roosevelt-style programs to kill virus, revive economy – By Reid Wilson – – “Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) said Friday that his state would join with Partners In Health, a Boston-based global health nonprofit, to turn staffers into contact tracers, the backbone of any robust public health effort to squelch a deadly disease… Those contact tracers will interview people who have been infected with the coronavirus to determine who around them might also have been exposed. Those who may have been exposed will be warned to watch for symptoms themselves, giving public health officials a window into how the coronavirus is spreading and who might next be at risk… Public health experts across the country hope Massachusetts will not be alone for long. Increasingly, those who have warned for months about the virus’s potential spread now say a mass-scale national program aimed at suppressing the virus at a community level through that sort of robust contact tracing is crucial to stopping its spread… Such a program aimed at bolstering national public health would be unprecedented in the history of the country. But as the economy nosedives into what could be a depression and millions lose their jobs in the space of a few days and weeks, a government-backed effort to get those people back to work does have a precedent, in Depression-era programs like the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)… In their brief histories, the WPA and the CCC employed nearly 1 in 10 Americans, giving people a paycheck in the years between Franklin Roosevelt’s election and the outset of World War II. In its first year, the WPA accounted for more than 6 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product — the equivalent of about $1.3 trillion in today’s dollars… That, public health experts said, would be money well-spent to both get a handle on a virus that has infected more than 332,000 people and killed almost 9,500 as of Sunday afternoon… ‘We need an army of contact tracers in every community in the United States to find every contact to warn them to take care of themselves and not to infect others,’ said Tom Frieden, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who now runs the global health nonprofit Resolve to Save Lives. ‘Contact tracing is a core public health activity. It’s bread and butter of public health.’ ” (emphases added) – Comment: I would speculate that this has been part of the Plandemic all along. Rather than using government funding to pay for public works projects as in the 30’s, hot money from the Fed will fund an army of, essentially, Stazi-like government agents.

(10) A plan for engagement with private sector communications infrastructure and systems equipment developers to encourage the maximum participation possible on standards-setting bodies related to such systems and infrastructure equipment standards by public and private sector entities from the United States. (14) A plan for research and development by the Federal Government, in close partnership with trusted supplier entities, mutual defense treaty allies, strategic partners, and other countries to reach and maintain United States leadership in 5th and future generations wireless communications systems and infrastructure security, including the development of an ongoing capability to identify security vulnerabilities in 5th and future generations wireless communications systems.’ ” – Dana Ashlie continues her brilliant work on subjects related to the “Coronavirus Pandemic”

Must, Must, MUST Read: Waves Of Mutilation: Medical Tyranny And The Cashless Society – by Brandon Smith – – “Back in 2014 during the Ebola scare in the US I published an article warning about how a global pandemic could be used by the elites as cover for the implementation of an economic collapse as well as martial law measures in western nations. My immediate concern was the way in which a viral outbreak could be engineered or exploited as a rationale for a level of social control that the public would never accept under normal circumstances. And this could be ANY viral outbreak, not just Ebola. The point is the creation of an “invisible enemy” that the populace cannot quantify and defend itself against without constant government oversight… I noted specifically how the government refused to apply air travel restrictions in 2014 to nations where the outbreak had taken hold when they could have stopped the spread in its tracks. This is something that was done again in 2020 as the UN’s WHO and governments including our government in the US refused to stop air travel from China, pretending as if it was not a hot zone and that the virus was nothing to worry about… This attitude of nonchalance serves a purpose. The establishment NEEDS the pandemic to spread, because then they have a rationale for strict controls of pubic activities and movements. This is the end goal. They have no care whatsoever for public health or safety. The end game is to acquire power, not save lives. In fact, they might prefer a higher death count in the beginning as this would motivate the public to beg for more restrictions in the name of security.” (emphases added)

Martial Law and the US Constitution…- by Ralph Fucetola JD – – “…when it came time to write the Constitution limiting the powers of the new central government it is not surprising that there is no provision in the Constitution permitting Martial Law… Late last month as part of the COVID Emergency Health Summit I interviewed constitutional scholar and lawyer, Larry Becraft, JD (known to many of us as The Dean of the Patriot Lawyers). In that interview we discussed the possibility and legality of Martial Law as a response to the declared pandemic. This article is based on that discussion and subsequent research… Since there is no provision in the Constitution allowing Martial Law, how did President Lincoln seek to impose Martial Law? How did President Wilson do so? How did FDR do so, going as far as incarcerating hundreds of thousands of American citizens of Japanese origin for years?”

Police App Encourages People To Report Neighbors Who Violate Stay At Home Orders – by MassPrivateI – “GeekWire revealed how the Bellevue Police Department has turned a public service app into a report on your neighbors app. You can report these incidents through the MyBellevue app on your electronic device or the MyBellevue portal… ‘Police in Bellevue, Wash., are asking residents to report violations of the state’s “stay home” order online in an effort to clear up 911 lines for emergencies.’.. A recent Associated Press article revealed that people are happy to report on their neighbors: ‘Snitches are emerging as enthusiastic allies as cities, states and countries work to enforce directives meant to limit person-to-person contact amid the virus pandemic that has claimed tens of thousands of lives worldwide. They’re phoning police and municipal hotlines, complaining to elected officials and shaming perceived scofflaws on social media.’ ”

From the We-Do-What-We’re-Told Desk: Social distancing works, but resistance prompts worries of growing crisis – by Nathaniel Weixel – – “Georges Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, said it is clear that social distancing measures are working, but he is concerned that the entire country is not following them… ‘It worked in California, in Seattle, that’s great. … We are a very mobile country and there are still places where they are not doing physical distancing at all,’ Benjamin said… Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and a member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force, recently questioned why some states have resisted… ‘I don’t understand why that’s not happening,” Fauci told CNN on Thursday. “If you look at what’s going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that. We really should be.’ ”

Nobody Knows What the Supposed “Covid-19 Test” Is Even Testing For – Food and Drug Administration: ‘Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus’ – by Jon Rappoport – – “In this article, I’ll present quotes from official sources about their own diagnostic test for the coronavirus. I’m talking about fatal flaws in the test… Because case numbers are based on those tests (or no tests at all), the whole “pandemic effect” has been created out of fake science… In a moment of truth, a propaganda pro might murmur to a colleague, “You know, we’ve got a great diagnostic test for the virus. The test turns out all sorts of results that say this person is diseased and that person is diseased. Millions of diseased people. But the test doesn’t really measure that. The test is ridiculous, but ridiculous in our favor. It builds the picture of a global pandemic. An excuse to lock down the planet and wreck economies and lives…” (emphasis added)

Our strength will be tested and our endurance will be tried.’.. On Sunday, Trump extended social distancing guidelines through the end of April as experts warned the US to expect between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths. Without social distancing and other methods, the projected number of deaths increases to between 1.6 and 2.2 million… ‘This is tough. People are suffering,’ said Dr. Anthony Fauci. ‘It’s inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint to go through this, but this is going to be the answer to our problems.’.. The Administration this week unveiled its new “30 Days to Slow the Spread” guidelines, which reiterate and extend existing advice including: social distancing, frequent hand washing, working from home, avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people, and bypassing discretionary travel… ‘It is absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines,’ said Trump. ‘It’s a matter of life and death.’ ” – Comment: If you believe this, I have a bridge in Wuhan you might be interested in.

Rioters, police clash in Jaffa (Israel) after officers accuse man of violating quarantine – “Dozens of people protested and some rioted in Jaffa on Wednesday after police stopped a man and accused him of breaking mandatory coronavirus quarantine… The man refused to show officers his identification card and was eventually fined for being more than 100 meters from his home… Police said that as they questioned the man they were encircled by his family members, some of whom attacked officers… Police said in a statement that rioters ‘arrived on the scene in an organized fashion with stones, tires and flammable materials.’ Protesters clashed with police, burning tires and blocking roads.”

Small Group of Coronavirus Patients Exhibit Neurological Symptoms – by David Lindfield – – “A woman in Michigan could remember her name, but not much else. A brain scan showed swelling and inflammation. She was diagnosed with acute necrotizing encephalopathy, a rare complication from some viruses, and she remains in critical condition according to the New York Times… Dr. Elissa Fory, a neurologist with Henry Ford Health System, said ‘The pattern of involvement, and the way that it rapidly progressed over days, is consistent with viral inflammation of the brain.’.. She continued, ‘This may indicate the virus can invade the brain directly in rare circumstances.’.. Several other cases showed that older patients who went to the doctor for neurological symptoms were also diagnosed with the virus… ‘It could be as simple as low levels of oxygen in the bloodstream,’ Dr. Robert Stevens, a neurologist at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine said.” (emphasis added)Comment: Impairment of oxygenation could be consistent with exposure to 60ghz microwaves in the 5G range…

Two Plans To “Re-Open” the Country Include COVID-19 Tracking Via Cell Phones and Mass Vaccination Program – by Sayer Ji – “As the world, and the United States, waits anxiously for news of when the outbreak and lockdown will end, two new plans outline requirements that will significantly impact our already suspended civil liberties… An important article published in STAT titled, “Two new road maps lay out possible paths to end coronavirus lockdowns,” reveals two plans for re-opening our country, one which offers no definite timeline, and the second indicating the soonest would be June: ‘The first, from Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy expert and vice-provost of the University of Pennsylvania (and brother of Rahm Emanuel of “Never let a good crisis go to waste fame), suggests lockdowns could ease up in June. The second, from former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Scott Gottlieb and colleagues, doesn’t set a date, but rather outlines the evidence that communities would need to begin lifting some of the more draconian restrictions.’.. Ezekiel Emanuel is vice provost of global initiatives and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Emanuel’s opinion on how to “stop the virus” is: ‘A nationwide shelter-in-place or quarantine should take place for the next eight to 10 weeks. According to Chinese data, this would mean the number of Covid-19 cases would peak in four weeks or so and then decline over the next four to six weeks. So, as hard as it would be, everybody but essential workers would have to remain inside until roughly June 1st.’.. Included in his suggestions are the following remedies, predicated as they are on surveillance of the entire population and an egregious violation of privacy: ‘State and local health department then need to deploy thousands of teams to trace contacts of all new Covid-19 cases using cellphone data, social media data, and data from thermometer tests and the like. We also need to get infected people to inform their own contacts. It would be easier to lift the national quarantine if we isolate new cases, find and test all their contacts, and isolate any of them who may be infected.’.. ‘Create a Covid-19 certification system. States should use blood tests to certify people who have had Covid-19, are immune and are no longer contagious. These people could then work in hospitals or other areas where being risk-free would be a benefit.’ ”

Syria And Turkey Ramp Up Preparations For New Military Confrontation (w/Video 4min) – – “At the same time, sources close to Idlib militants announced that Ankara is forming five new units consisting of its own troops, members of the National Front for Liberation and the Syrian National Army. Both these militant groups are funded and trained by Turkey. The newly formed units will be led by Turkish officers and allegedly include 9,000 Syrian militants and a similar number of Turkish troops. Pro-Turkish sources speculate that this force will be tasked with securing the M4 highway in southern Idlib and clearing the area of radical groups like Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. After this, a security zone will be established and joint Turkish-Russian patrols will be launched in the area as it was agreed to by Presidents Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin in Moscow. The problem with this theory is that the Turkish-backed groups, which should supposedly be involved in this operation are allied with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other al-Qaeda-linked organizations. So, they will have little motivation to confront them shifting the burden of fighting to Turkish troops.”

There Are Multiple Strains Of Coronavirus; Here’s What We Know – by Tyler Durden – – “As COVID-19 blankets the globe – now having officially infected over 800,000 people in 179 countries, causing over 39,000 deaths – scientists are tracking a multitude of strains, according to USA Today… The virus has undergone over a hundred tiny mutations which act like genetic fingerprints – allowing researchers to see how the virus is migrating and splitting into similar but new subtypes, which can be seen at the website… (for more on “strain” vs “mutation” and why the terminology is causing confusion, see this thread from NextStrain’s Trevor Bedford): ‘Labs around the world are turning their sequencing machines, most about the size of a desktop printer, to the task of rapidly sequencing the genomes of virus samples taken from people sick with COVID-19. The information is uploaded to a website called that shows how the virus is migrating and splitting into similar but new subtypes.’ –USA Today

The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere,’ he continued… ‘Until the case numbers start to go down across America — which could take 10 weeks or more — no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown.’.. Gates pointed out that there could potentially be a vaccine within 18 months, but said, ‘creating a vaccine is only half the battle.’.. ‘We can start now by building the facilities where these vaccines will be made,’ the Microsoft founder wrote. ‘Because many of the top candidates are made using unique equipment, we’ll have to build facilities for each of them, knowing that some won’t get used.’.. Gates continued, ‘Private companies can’t take that kind of risk, but the federal government can. It’s a great sign that the administration made deals this week with at least two companies to prepare for vaccine manufacturing. I hope more deals will follow.’ ”

All Roads Lead to Dark Winter – by Whitey Webb & Raul Diego – – “The leaders of two controversial pandemic simulations that took place just months before the Coronavirus crisis – Event 201 and Crimson Contagion – share a common history, the 2001 biowarfare simulation Dark Winter. Dark Winter not only predicted the 2001 anthrax attacks, but some of its participants had clear foreknowledge of those attacks… In addition to missing samples of anthrax, ebola, hanta virus and a variant of AIDS, two of the missing specimens had been labeled “unknown” – ‘an Army euphemism for classified research whose subject was secret,’ according to reports. The vast majority of the specimens lost were never found and an Army spokesperson would later claim that it was ‘likely some were simply thrown out with the trash.’ ”

Rabobank: “This Is The Dynamic That Will Trigger The Next Round Of Global Turmoil Ahead” – by Michael Every – – “Allow me to repeat once again: the crucial factor for markets to consider imminently is that not all economies and currencies are created equal. Not everyone is going to be able to get away with 20% fiscal deficits paid for by central banks. Only the US is guaranteed to be able to do so without crushing its currency due to the USD reserve function. The vast majority won’t, and there will be a high price paid for any stimulus… Let’s see how AUD and NZD and CAD and GBP, et al., ultimately fare as they go the zero rates and unlimited QE route as if there is natural market demand for them globally; and emerging markets are in a far deeper hole if they want to push back fiscally against the ‘rules of the game’ in the same way that developed economies are… The underlying issue is still ‘another day, another US dollar’. And there aren’t that many to go round in EM space in particular, doubly so when export earnings evaporate ahead – which they will. That key dynamic is set to trigger the next round of global turmoil ahead. Coming soon: Imperial vs. Rebel sums fighting over the USD Death Star.”

Fed Launches Repo Facility To Provide Dollars To Foreign Central Bank – by Tyler Durden – – “…perhaps Powell felt a bit unloved and at 830am this morning the Fed unveiled yet another “temporary” emergency liquidity providing facility, this time to foreign central banks, in the form of a repo facility targeting “foreign and international monetary authorities”, i.e. foreign central banks which will be allowed to exchange Treasuries held in custody at the Fed for US dollars… In other words, just a week after the Fed “enhanced” its swap lines with central banks and included a bunch of non G-5 central banks to the list of counterparties, it has found that this is not working – perhaps due to the prohibitive rates on the facility – and is now handing out dollars outright against US denominated securities. We wonder if the central bank uptake will be any higher than the repo facility aimed at US dealers and which is now redundant. Of course, when that fails the Fed can just offer to buy all central bank securities in what even reputable FX strategists now joke is a Fed on full tilt, and intent on buying out all foreign central banks… And so, just as the financial situation was starting (to seem to) to stabilize, the Fed reminds everyone just how broken everything still is.”

Being in the Age of Corona – by Gilad Atzmon – – “Two existential realisations are crucial in light of the above: 1. Many things, including life itself, are inflicted on us. We do not choose to be in the world, we do not choose who we are; our genes, DNA, the list of gifts and faults that make us into what we are, are in most cases imposed on us by the act of birth. We are often locked into situations that are basically forced on us. This includes being thrown into the world as well as being taken away. We may as well be upset by the fact that the sun rises in the east or by the shortening days of the winter. Being in the world is a form of acceptance or even surrender.”

I got a request from Alignable, which is supposedly dedicated to supporting local businesses, for ideas on how businesses in Santa Cruz can be helped. I posted the following:

My wife’s skin care business is completely closed. How can Santa Cruz businesses be helped when the general population complies meekly with an “order” from an appointed public health official who seems to be deriving jurisdiction from Federal Emergency Powers which seem to be entirely Unconstitutional? How long are people going to comply with this regime based on computer models of a ginned up “crisis” that are now massively exposed under expert analyses as being faulty and shockingly overblown? Multiple eminent virologists have come out with this information and their expert opinions that a “lock-down” (a term from the prison industry) is not only not effective, but is harmful to society in serious ways. This virus is not virulent when we have access to the successful treatment protocols that have been reported by doctors from around the globe.

Larry Hogan is warning that medical experts say the coronavirus pandemic could escalate within two weeks in the Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland region, where it could resemble the current level of cases in New York City… New Jersey recorded 3,347 new positive cases since yesterday, bringing our statewide total to 16,636… Virginia’s new ‘stay at home order’ will last until June 10 until modified, which critics cited as a more reasonable timeline, and noted that even Trump is now making gestures toward June… Gov. Phil Murphy kept his promise to “shame” those caught violating the state’s lockdown, among them involving residents facing charges including four buddies who met to drag race in a school parking lot, men who held weddings, a woman who left her home to toss a Molotov cocktail at her boyfriend’s residence (unsuccessfully, we might add) and a billiards hall owner who reopened after he was ordered to close.” (emphasis added)

The Common Roots Of Climate Change And COVID-19 Hysteria – by Patrick Wood – – “People want to know: just how bad is the COVID-19 virus and is fighting it worth the destruction of the world’s economic and financial system while disrupting the lives of hundreds of millions of people? The story behind the story will make it clear that things are seldom as they seem… In short and when seen through the lens of Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy, the whole world has just been punked and then panicked into destroying itself over COVID-19… What the Sustainable Development crowd needed was to put their non-performing racehorse “Global Warming” out to pasture and find a brand new horse that could finally run and win the race to what the UN calls “deep transformation” of the entire global economic system. The new horse is named “COVID-19”. Different horse, same jockey, same race, same finish line.” – Comment: Excellent article by Patrick Wood, nailing the deep involvement of Global Technocrats in the creation and ongoing exploitation of the NCV “crisis.”

BREAKING: France Officially Sanctions (makes allowance for) Chloroquine After 78 of 80 Coronavirus Patients Recover – by David Lindfield – – “France 24 English reported, ‘The French government has officially sanctioned prescriptions of chloroquine to treat certain coronavirus patients.’.. France’s director general of health Jérôme Salomon said, ‘This ensures continued treatment of patients who have been treated for several years for a chronic condition with this drug, but also allows a temporary authorization to allow certain patients with coronavirus to benefit from this therapeutic route.’.. Chloroquine is a drug often used to fight malaria, but also has successfully treated certain patients infected with coronavirus… According to The Daily Wire, the five-day recovery time (of the patients in the study) is “considerably” faster “than the usual 14 days and for some it can go up to 28 days if they recover at all… Dr. Raouly cheered the news via social media on Saturday: ‘Thanks to Philippe Douste-Blazy, former Minister of Health and member of the Board of Directors of the @IHU_Marseille, for his position,’ he wrote.”

Bill De Blasio Threatens to Close Churches That Resist Shutdown Order – by David Lindfield – – ” ‘So, I want to say to all those who are preparing the potential of religious services this weekend – if you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,’ de Blasio said to reporters… ‘I don’t say that with any joy. It’s the last thing I would like to do because I understand how important people’s faiths are to them, and we need our faiths in this time of crisis, but we do not need gatherings that will endanger people.’.. ‘No faith tradition endorses anything that endangers the members of that faith,’ de Blasio continued. ‘So, the NYPD, Fire Department, Buildings Department, and everyone has been instructed that if they see worship services going on, they will go to the officials of that congregation, they’ll inform them they need to stop the services and disperse.’.. ‘If that does not happen, they will take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently,’ de Blasio added.”

Rosneft Abruptly Exits Venezuela, Sells Assets To Russian State, Amid US Squeeze On Maduro – by Tyler Durden – – “In the past weeks the Kremlin has shown it’s willing to punch back as well as take drastic necessary defensive action in the face of Washington sanctions at a moment America is preoccupied and made more vulnerable by the coronavirus threat first by dumping OPEC+ and MbS, effectively declaring war on US shale and now by taking aggressive measures to insulate Russia’s state-controlled Rosneft… On Saturday Rosneft announced it has sold off all its Venezuelan oil assets to an unnamed Russian state entity. “The government of the Russian Federation has acquired assets in Venezuela from Rosneft. A company 100% owned by the Russian Federation has become the owner,” Russia’s TASS said… A company statement framed the move as key to protecting shareholders’ interests at a moment the Trump administration ramps up pressure on Maduro and external entities still doing business with Caracas.”

Media steers clear of questioning Biden about sexual allegations against him – by Mike Santorini – – “On Wednesday, (former Biden Staffer Tara) Reade, in an interview with podcast host Katie Halper, said there’s more to her experience with the former vice president… She said Biden kissed her and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent. When Reader pulled away, she says, Biden told her: “Come on, man. I heard you liked me.” The incident, according to Reader, took place near the Capitol building. She met Biden there after being asked, by a more senior staffer, to bring him his gym bag… Biden’s campaign denied the allegations on Friday. “Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims. We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,” said deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement… Biden has been a vocal supporter of women who come forward with sexual allegations. ‘For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real,’ Biden said during the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.”

Tucker Carlson Defends His Bold Prediction: Biden Will Not Be the 2020 Democratic Nominee – by David Lindfield – – “Tucker Carlson said, ‘I am utterly convinced, and would bet money, that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on election day. I just don’t believe that. I really don’t.’.. ‘He shouldn’t be working still,’ he said. ‘I’m not being mean. I know him. I’ve always liked him. But that’s true. And so, those are two trains traveling toward each other at high speed. Two competing imperatives. We’ve got to win, but we’ve got a guy who can’t win. Therefore, they’re gonna replace him.’.. This is not the guy I’ve known, and you can ask anybody who knows him or has watched him,” Carlson said… ‘This is not him. He’s a completely different person, and he’s in decline and I feel bad about it. That’ll be me someday … I hope somebody loves me enough to not let me run for president.’ ”

Pentagon Orders Teams to Underground Mountain Bunkers in Preparation for Pandemic – by John Vibes – – “During the Cold War, the United States government came up with a contingency plan to ensure that the military was able to maintain power in the face of an existential threat. At the time, the threat that they had in mind was some type of nuclear attack, but this also includes a biological threat, like the one the world is currently facing… This strategy is known as “Continuity of Government” and it involves a variety of different plans that are intended to help the U.S. government and military maintain control of the region during times of emergency… These new precautions included the implementation of a lengthy line of succession for people who will fall into the executive role if something should happen to the president or vice president… The facilities used in these types of situations include Cheyenne Mountain, the Presidential Emergency Operations Center under the White House, Raven Rock Mountain Complex in Pennsylvania, and Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center in Pennsylvania… It is possible that additional members of the government will also be sent to isolated bunkers if the situation becomes more dangerous on the surface. There is no indication that further mobilizations are planned, but considering the secrecy of the operation, it is unlikely that such plans would be formally announced.”

The Fed’s Cure Risks Being Worse Than the Disease – by Jim Bianco – – “But it’s the alphabet soup of new programs that deserve special consideration, as they could have profound long-term consequences for the functioning of the Fed and the allocation of capital in financial markets. Specifically, these are: ● CPFF (Commercial Paper Funding Facility) – buying commercial paper from the issuer. ● PMCCF (Primary Market Corporate Credit Facility) – buying corporate bonds from the issuer. ● TALF (Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility) – funding backstop for asset-backed securities. ● SMCCF (Secondary Market Corporate Credit Facility) – buying corporate bonds and bond ETFs in the secondary market. ● MSBLP (Main Street Business Lending Program) – Details are to come, but it will lend to eligible small and medium-size businesses, complementing efforts by the Small Business Association… To put it bluntly, the Fed isn’t allowed to do any of this. The central bank is only allowed to purchase or lend against securities that have government guarantee.”

Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020 – “If you’re a gun owner, you literally need to drop everything you’re doing right now and oppose this bill… HR 5717 is the worst anti-gun legislation that FPC has ever seen. It could end gun rights in totality within a generation… In 2016, we fought hard against a huge surge of anti-gun legislation in California. We dubbed it “Gunpocalypse.”.. And now Rep. Hank Johnson has introduced a bill that rolls up all of Gunpocalypse – and more – into one federal bill… HR 5717 would: ● Create a nationwide gun registry Ban almost all semiautomatic rifles Institute a federal Magazine Ban Implement national “Red Flag” gun confiscation, ● Tax guns at 30% and ammo at 50% Ban patriots under 21 from exercising their Second Amendment rights, ● Ration guns by making it illegal to purchase more than one firearm in a 30-day period, ● Force “Safe Storage” requirements on gun owners, ● Ban home builds, ● Ban suppressors, ● Force FFLs to spend massive amounts of money to comply with new “security” requirements, ● Expand “Gun Free Zones”, And more than we can possibly list here in this space”

Trump Admin Names Gun Makers, Retailers Essential Businesses Nationwide – “President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security released updated guidelines naming gun manufacturers and retailers as essential on Saturday, which means they are to stay open and operational nationwide during a Chinese coronavirus shutdown… The DHS guidelines list as essential: ● Workers supporting the manufacturing of safety equipment and uniforms for law enforcement, public safety personnel, and first responders. ● Workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges.” – Comment: There seems to be some controversy about this within the “Administrative System.”

2 Arrested, 70 Cited for Violating Stay-At-Home Orders, Police Say – by David Lindfield – – “The Star Advisor has reported that 70 citations and 2 arrests have been made from Hawaiian citizens who refuse to follow the shelter-in-place directives issued by the governor. A third arrest was reported during this time, but it was not related to the shelter rules… Violating the executive order is a misdemeanor that can be punished with a year in prison or a fine up to $5000… Hawaiian Gov. David has managed each island differently and although he has not established checkpoints across the board, it has been considered on the islands have only one road that would be easy for law enforcement to monitor.”

Chuck Norris Issues Chilling Coronavirus Statement — Warns of Rebellion, Martial Law – by David Lindfield – “In a report by Western Journal, Chuck Norris has presented concerns for the freedoms that are being restricted during this pandemic… Norris said he was concerned by the growing lockdown orders and curfews being enforced by law enforcement limiting citizens’ movements… ‘If the need for citizen confinement grows, and the restrictions increase, where does it end? And what excessive burden are we then placing upon law enforcement to corral even half of Americans (150 million)?’ he asked… ‘And if even the smallest transgression of confinement restrictions ends up being a misdemeanor, how will officials handle tens of millions of them?’.. Norris pointed out that if police are expected to enforce the curfews, they too could become stricken with coronavirus.”

Kennedy Center lays off musicians after receiving $25 Million in stimulus bill – by Mike Santorini – – “The orchestra’s Covid-19 Advisory Committee sent an email to 96 musicians on Friday, informing them that their checks would be cut off starting April 3, the Washington Free Beacon reported… ‘The Covid-19 Advisory Committee was broadsided today during our conversation with [Kennedy Center President] Deborah Rutter. Ms. Rutter abruptly informed us today that the last paycheck for all musicians and librarians will be April 3 and that we will not be paid again until the Center reopens,’ the email said. ‘Everyone should proceed as if their last paycheck will be April 3. We understand this will come [as a] shock to all of you, as it did to us.’ ”

Santa Cruz Police Will Enforce Shelter-In-Place Order, Dept. Says – – “The Santa Cruz Police Department on Sunday announced its intention to actively enforce the city’s shelter-in-place order when officers sees businesses or groups of people in violation… The department says it generally relies on warnings, but is prepared to issue citations if it sees non-essential businesses violating the public health order to close or people outdoors in groups… ‘We do not take this enforcement stance lightly,’ the department said in a news release. ‘The COVID-19 pandemic is a serious community health threat, and the Public Health Order is enforceable.’ ” – Comment: My wife’s business is in the unincorporated area of the County. Still…

New Yorkers Who Break Social Distancing Rules Will Now Face Fines Up to $500 – by David Lindfield – – “New York City has shut down all nonessential businesses, and banned gatherings of any size. With 32,308 confirmed cases in New York City as of Sunday, De Blasio said fines of $250 to $500 would be given to those who are found congregating in public places… ‘You’ve been warned and warned and warned again,’ He said… ‘They’re going to give people every chance to listen, and if anyone doesn’t listen, then they deserve a fine at this point,’ de Blasio said. ‘I don’t want to fine people when so many folks are going through economic distress, but if they haven’t gotten the message by now, and they don’t get the message wh

Bill Gates Calls for Vaccine Certificates as Requirement for Travel – from Health Impact News – the 17 min video on this page (video has an add at the end, 16min 50sec). This looks like promotion of a mandatory vaccination agenda. According to Gates’ proposals, in order to travel people would need at least some kind of “official” test to certify they’d had “the disease.”

As 911 Gets Calls for Coughing Neighbors, Hotline Allows People to Snitch to Govt During Outbreak – by Matt Agorist – – “Starting last week in California, paranoid citizens began calling their local police departments via 911 to report their neighbors — for coughing. Seriously. Fast forward to this week, however, and we now have a hotline set up in Kentucky designed to take calls from people just like the ones in California who call the cops to report their neighbors for coughing… On Monday, Kentucky Governor Beshear announced a COVID-19 snitch hotline that allows citizens to report people and businesses who they think may be disobeying the state’s social distancing mandates. The COVID-19 reporting hotline is 1-833-KY-SAFER or (833)-597-2337… The governor’s decision drew immediate ire from Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie who compared it to a chapter out of George Orwell’s 1984.”

New York Hospital Giving Coronavirus Patients Massive Amounts of Vitamin C – “The administering of 1,500 milligrams of intravenous Vitamin C is over 16 times the recommended dietary allowance of the antioxidant, but has resulted in patients treated with the vitamin faring “significantly” better than those patients who aren’t receiving the treatment, reports the New York Post… According to pulmonologist and critical-care specialist Dr. Andrew G. Weber, who is affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, intensive-care patients infected with the novel virus are immediately administered the massive dosage when they arrive in ICU. The powerful vitamin C dosage is re-administered intravenously three or four times per day, he added… Weber explained that the inspiration for the treatment comes after doctors in Shanghai, China, also used it.”

Two Hundred and Thirty Years of Rights and Liberties Shredded: Why I Oppose The Lockdown – by Brandon Turbeville – – “My opposition to the potential Lockdown is twofold but principally it is based on the fact that over two hundred and thirty years of rights and liberties should not be shredded on the basis of any threat, real or imagined. Americans either have rights or we don’t. There is no asterisk in the Constitution that states the Bill of Rights is null and void in the event of a terrorist attack or a virus outbreak. If we do not maintain our rights in a time of crisis, then, simply put, we do not truly have rights at all… If we do not maintain these rights, our country, such as it is, ceases to exist… As Peter Hitchens, one of the few critics of this Lockdown mentality (happening all over the world and, in his case, Britain) wrote in his recent article for the Mail Online, ‘All the crudest weapons of despotism, the curfew, the presumption of guilt and the power of arbitrary arrest, are taking shape in the midst of what used to be a free country. And we, who like to boast of how calm we are in a crisis, seem to despise our ancient hard-bought freedom and actually want to rush into the warm, firm arms of Big Brother.’.. So here I am, twenty years after a writing career began as a result of generally good people who were frightened into giving away their rights, writing about exactly the same thing yet again. Of course, there may be time to reverse the direction in which we are heading. The next few weeks will most likely determine that matter. One thing is for certain, however, if Americans give up their rights now, they will never get them back.”

COVID 19, Created in North Carolina for Bio-Warfare, Paid for by the CIA and Trump Blames China – by Gordon Duff – “Documents below will show that research to create COVID 19 began in the United States in 2006 and culminated in a successful bio-weapon in 2015, with work done at the University of North Carolina and at Harvard and at the Food and Drug Administration’s lab in Arkansas… Their work was titled: ‘A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence’… They did this and more, so much more as you will read below.”

Harvard Study Claims COVID-19 Fatality Rate Far Lower Than World Health Org Suggests – by David Lindfield – – “The study was published in Nature Medicine last week.

And I remember he … it happened all at once. The gym bag, I don’t know where it went. I handed it to him and it was gone, and his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then he went down my skirt and then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers.’ Reade continued… ‘He was kissing me at the same time, and … I remember him saying as he was doing it, ‘Do you want to go somewhere else?’ … He got finished doing what he was doing, and I tried to pull back, and he said, ‘C’mon man, I heard you liked me!’ ‘ ”

But strong support (72%) was also voiced by Republic respondents, with 37% strongly supporting the approach and 35% somewhat supporting such a measure. Independents were widely supportive (69%) as well.”

47,000 Stores Shutter Across The US As Virtually All Retailers Stop Paying Rent – by Tyler Durden – – “These moves, as Bloomberg notes, mark the next phase in virus fallout: what happens to billions in rent owed for businesses that have been closed? The stakes are high. Retail has a slew of big chains in turnaround mode. And if they do withhold payments, there would be a ripple effect. Landlords can’t afford to stop collecting rent for long, with many property owners sitting on loads of debt… Worse, if landlords refuse to budge, it’s unclear how this mutually assured destruction will conclude in anyone’s favor… ‘The court system is just going to get flooded with a million of these disputes between tenants and landlords,’ said Vince Tibone, an analyst at Green Street Advisors. ‘If the government doesn’t step in in any form or fashion, it could get ugly. They need to respond quickly.’.. In short: this will be the biggest in court mess ever, and whether it involves in court bankruptcy or not, will not matter one bit, as there is simply no money.”

The Global Economy Won’t Bounce Back Soon – by Daniel Lacalle – – ” It is very likely that the closure of the main developed economies will be followed by a closure of the emerging markets, creating a shock to supply that has not been seen in decades. The adoption of massive inflationary and demand-driven measures in a shock to supply is not only a mistake, but is the recipe for stagflation and guarantees a multi-year negative impact generated by the increase in debt, the weakening of productivity, the increase in inflation in non-reproducible goods while deflation is making headlines and economic stagnation.”

Despite QEternity & “Record” Bailout-Bill, The US Dollar Shortage Is Intensifying… – by Tyler Durden – – “Despite unprecedented actions by The Fed: ‘The FOMC expanded its large scale asset purchase program by promising to purchase ‘in the amounts needed.’ Previously, the FOMC had said it would purchase at least $500bn of Treasury securities and at least $200bn of agency MBS. The FOMC also announced that the agency MBS purchases will include agency commercial MBS.’.. So, the question is simple – How can the Fed launch an “unlimited” monetary stimulus with congress approving a $2 trillion package and the dollar index remain strong?.. The answer, as Daniel Lacalle details below, lies in the rising global dollar shortage, and should be a lesson for monetary alchemists around the world… The $2 trillion stimulus package agreed by Congress is around 10% of GDP and, if we include the Fed borrowing facilities for working capital, it means $6 trillion in liquidity for consumers and firms over the next nine months… To (the $2 Trillion Stimulus Package), we must add the massive quantitative easing program announced by the Fed… First, we must understand that the word “unlimited” is only a communication tool. It is not unlimited. It is limited by the confidence and demand of US dollars… How did we reach such a dollar shortage? In the past 20 years, dollar-denominated debt in emerging and developed economies, led by China, has exploded. The reason is simple, domestic and international investors do not accept local currency risk in large quantities knowing that, in an event like what we are currently experiencing, many countries will decide to make huge devaluations and destroy their bondholders… If we take the US dollar reserves of the most indebted countries and deduct the outstanding liabilities with the estimated foreign exchange revenues in this crisis … The global dollar shortage may rise from 13 trillions of dollars in March 2020 to $ 20 trillion in December … And that is if we do not estimate a lasting global recession.” – Comment: Sobering facts like the above suggest that Trump’s “bold statement” that the U.S. economy will start to recover rapicly by Easter (a little over 2 weeks away!) is little more that the disingenuous blowing of smoke.

WTI Erases Overnight Gains On Demand Fears, Crude Inventory Build – by Tyler Durden – – “Oil prices extended gains overnight, along with the rest of the markets, on hope The Fed’s buying will work and optimism that US Congress will agree a bigly Stimulus Bill and helped by a surprise crude draw reported by API… But early on this morning that all started to fall apart and WTI plunged back to a $23 handle after the boss of Vitol Group said demand is down about 15 million to 20 million barrels a day and will shrink further with India’s decision to go into lockdown.”

A More Effective Response To The Crisis – Monetary Insanity Is Not The Solution To Monetary Excess – by Daniel Lacalle – – “This is a supply shock added to a mandatory shutdown of the economy. As such, a serious response must be supply-side driven. It is ludicrous to try to stimulate demand with printed money and public spending in a forced lockdown where any extra demand will not drive supply up, even may drive it down… We cannot fall into the trap of believing that what the economy needs is more monetary easing when it fails, and if it does not work then we must try even more monetary insanity… Monetary insanity is not the solution to monetary excess and lunacy… My proposals: Some politicians have mentioned the concept of “war economy”. And I think it is a correct one. For a war economy, there can be no bull-market administration… The first thing that the Government should announce in the face of this challenge is a drastic reduction to zero of all the non-essential items of the budget, unnecessary subsidies, duplicate expenses, and a reduction in ministries and senior officials according to the moment. The second is to work with the private sector to guarantee that, once a vaccine is available, all production and distribution channels are well organized so that it can reach the population quickly and efficiently. The third is a complete tax exemption during the crisis period for companies, families and the self-employed. Zero income, zero tax. This will allow, together with liquidity lines at no cost, to survive the lockdown… Governments are already going to consume all the fiscal space they have and more. The idea is that this enormous liquidity at negative real rates may be used for something effective for once, not to increase structural imbalances in current spending… This is not asking the state to intervene, it is asking the government to stop intervening so much…”

Putin Postpones Controversial National Referendum After COVID-19 Cases Leap Overnight – by Tyler Durden – – “Importantly, Putin declared the postponement of a national referendum on constitutional amendments originally scheduled for April 22 to “a later date”… The proposed amendments came out of the major January shake-up which led to the resignation of the government. The measures were expected to pass easily, but the changes have been hugely controversial outside Russia as they could theoretically allow him to be president until 2036… It seems Putin took the dire warning to heart as he announced a series of drastic measures to combat the spread including declaring the entire next week a work holiday (with salaries preserved, he noted), or something akin to a national lockdown. “All the measures that have been and will be taken will work, produce a result as long as we show solidarity, understanding of the difficulty of the current situation,” Putin said… Alarmingly, he took a pessimistic tone that belies the current low numbers, saying it will ultimately be “impossible” to completely stop the coronavirus spread in Russia due to the large size of the country.”

Why Did Hundreds Of CEOs Resign Just Before The World Started Going Absolutely Crazy? – by Michael Snyder – – “Meanwhile, top corporate executives were dumping billions of dollars worth of shares in their own companies just before the market completely cratered. The following comes from the Wall Street Journal…Top executives at U.S.-traded companies sold a total of roughly $9.2 billion in shares of their own companies between the start of February and the end of last week, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows… ‘The selling saved the executives—including many in the financial industry—potential losses totaling $1.9 billion, according to the analysis, as the S&P 500 stock index plunged about 30% from its peak on Feb. 19 through the close of trading March 20.’.. In the stock market, you only make money if you get out in time, and many among the corporate elite seem to have impeccable timing.”

Unfortunate Adventures Of Turkish Army In Idlib – “The open secret is that Turkish forces have become the target of attacks by groups that Ankara has been supporting with its opposition of the anti-terrorist operations of the Syrian Army. Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, Houras al-Din, the Turkistan Islamic Party and similar organizations see the creation of a buffer zone along the M4 as a grave threat to their interests and survival. Therefore they are sabotaging the deal by blocking the highway and fuelling military tensions in the region. In the near future, they may even stage a large false-flag attack on Turkish forces near the contact line planning to blame the ‘Assad regime’ for it and thus relaunch military hostilities between the Turkish Army and the Syrian Armed Forces… Violations of the ceasefire regime by Idlib radicals are also increasing. Recently, ATGM, mortar attacks and artillery shelling were reported near Kafr Nubl, Saraqib, Kansafra and Kabinah. Turkish-backed groups claim that this week they destroyed a Syrian Army battle tank and bulldozer north of Saraqib… Members of Turkish-backed Faylaq al-Madj raided the village of Sukariya, near the town of Tell Abyad, in northeastern Syria. They attacked locals wounding dozens of them and looting their property.”

U.S. Europe Defender 2020 Deployment To Poland To Remain Longer Under Pretext Of COVID-19 Issues – “The United States 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division (2/3 ABCT) will remain in Poland, to reinforce security, a letter by its commander said. The pretext for the move is supposed COVID-19-related issues… “Spartan Brigade Family,.. Why this Change of mission? The decision was largely based on the timing of the next regionally aligned brigade’s arrival versus the spread of COVID-19 in Europe. Since 2/3 ABCT was already in place in Europe prior to travel restrictions into and out of Europe, and the next brigade had not arrived, the decision was mad for 2/3 ABCT to assume their mission as the European-based brigade combat team… What Changes? The entire brigade remains in Europe. All seven battalions wil stay here until the completion of our rotation sometime later this year. This means that the brigade will no longer deploy to our previously identified follow-on mission nor return this summer to Ft. Stewart. Therefore, we should expect that a majority of the Soldiers who are currently in Europe will not return home until the completion of this rotation. Please understand that the exact details of our return are still being finalized and we will let you know when your Soldiers will be home once we have confirmed our timeline. Finally, in order to meet manning requirements, some of the Soldiers currently at Ft. Stewart will be asked to deploy forward to join our team here in Europe.” – Comment: This looks like an inadequately explained, anomalous, and potentially ominous, development.

Moderna’s Experimental COVID-19 Vaccine Might Be Ready For Limited Use By The Fall – by Tyler Durden – – “A human trial being held in Washington State to research a promising drug designed to fight COVID-19 is reportedly going better than expected, and it’s possible that a handful of infected patients – likely health-care workers – could be administered the drug by the fall… Stephane Bancel, the biotech’s chief executive, told Goldman Sachs on Friday that mRNA-1273 could be made available to a few patients, likely health-care workers suffering from COVID-19, under emergency use authorization, according to a statement from the company picked up by Bloomberg… The vaccine was developed in partnership with Moderna and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, with human testing starting earlier this month… Moderna is ramping up production so it’s ready to produce millions of doses of its experimental vaccine if the vaccine is found to be useful in curing and preventing the virus. A commercially-available vaccine isn’t expected for at least a year.” – Comment: The relationship of Moderna to the Bill Gates Foundation, WHO, etc., is outlined in the William Engdahl article I posted yesterday (below).

Coronavirus Stimulus Offered By House Financial Services Committee Creates New Digital Dollar – by Jason Brett – – “Jason BrettThe bill establishes a digital dollar, which it defines as ‘a balance expressed as a dollar value consisting of digital ledger entries that are recorded as liabilities in the accounts of any Federal Reserve Bank or … an electronic unit of value, redeemable by an eligible financial institution (as determined by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System).’ Additionally, a digital dollar wallet is identified as ‘a digital wallet or account, maintained by a Federal reserve bank on behalf of any person, that represents holdings in an electronic device or service that is used to store digital dollars that may be tied to a digital or physical identity.’.. A mandate also requires all ‘member banks’ establish a ‘pass-through digital dollar wallet’ to all customers eligible for the stimulus. Member banks include those banks that are ‘members’ of the Federal Reserve and regulated by the Fed. Additionally, ‘Non-Member’ state banks – those that not members of the Federal Reserve and regulated by the FDIC – could opt-in to offer pass-through digital dollar wallets as well.” (emphasis added)

India Is Now Hand-Stamping People Who Are Suspected To Have COVID-19 Infections – by Tyler Durden – – “And now, as if the coronavirus containment scenes from around the world weren’t dystopian enough, the disturbing imagery continues in India, where those suspected of having the coronavirus are now being given hand stamps, according to ReutersThe same people are also being tracked using their mobile phones and personal data in order for the government to help enforce quarantines. The tracking effort raises obvious questions about both privacy and mass surveillance… More than 200 people have been infected with coronavirus in India, and there had been four official deaths as of yesterday. But officials continue to report cases of people fleeing quarantine.”

Italy in Meltdown, Sends Military to Enforce Covid-19 Lockdown – by Alice Green – – “Italy implemented a nationwide quarantine on March 9th in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus. Last week, as Italy’s totals eclipsed those in China, authorities banned residents from outdoor exercises including running and biking… The Italian military has been dispatched to Milan to enforce the quarantine measures. Nearly 10,000 people left their homes in violation of the lockdown on Friday.” – Comment: It’s eerie to see how similar the measures for “flattening the curve” through suppression of society are throughout the nations of the world.

In Unprecedented Move, Fed Unveils Open-Ended QE Including Corporate Bonds – by Tyler Durden – – “Coming into Monday, the Fed had a problem: it had already used up half of its entire emergency $700BN QE5 announced last weekend... Which, together with the plunge in stocks, is why at 8am on Monday, just as we expected – given the political cover they have been provided – The Fed unveiled an unprecedented expansion to its mandate, announcing open-ended QE which also gave it the mandate to buy corporates bonds (in the primary and secondary market) to unclog the frozen corporate bond market as we just one step away from a full Fed nationalization of the market (only Fed stock purchases remain now)… As noted elsewhere, the Fed’s new credit facilities carry limits on paying dividends and making stock buybacks for firms that defer interest payments, but have no explicit restrictions preventing beneficiaries from laying off workers… The Fed will buy Treasuries and agency mortgage-backed securities “in the amounts needed to support smooth market functioning and effective transmission of monetary policy to broader financial conditions and the economy,” and will also buy agency commercial mortgage-backed securities, according to a statement… The Fed also said it will support “the flow of credit to employers, consumers and businesses by establishing new programs that, taken together, will provide up to $300 billion in new financing.” It will be backed by $30 billion from the Treasury’s Exchange Stabilization Fund… Coincidentally, this unprecedented action takes place just hours after real estate billionaire Tom Barrack (and friend of Trump) said the U.S. commercial-mortgage market is on the brink of collapse and predicted a “domino effect” of catastrophic economic consequences if banks and government don’t take prompt action to keep borrowers from defaulting: ‘Loan repayment demands are likely to escalate on a systemic level, triggering a domino effect of borrower defaults that will swiftly and severely impact the broad range of stakeholders in the entire real estate market, including property and home owners, landlords, developers, hotel operators and their respective tenants and employees,’ he wrote… Barrack said the impact could dwarf that of the Great Depression… and now CMBS get their bailout.”

Coronavirus, Vaccines and the Gates Foundation – by F. William Engdahl – – “Arguably, no one has been more active in promoting and funding research on vaccines aimed at dealing with coronavirus than Bill Gates and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. From sponsoring a simulation of a coronavirus global pandemic, just weeks before the Wuhan outbreak was announced, to funding numerous corporate efforts to come up with a novel vaccine for the apparently novel virus, the Gates presence is there. What does it actually entail?.. Gates Foundation money is backing vaccine development on every front. Inovio Pharmaceuticals of Pennsylvania received $9 million from the Gates-backed CEPI, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, to develop a vaccine, INO-4800, which is about to test on humans in April, a suspiciously rapid time frame. In addition Gates Foundation just gave the company an added $5 million to develop a proprietary smart device for intradermal delivery of the new vaccine… In addition Gates Foundation monies via CEPI are financing development of a radical new vaccine method known as messengerRNA or mRNA… Notable about the Fauci-Gates Moderna coronavirus vaccine, mRNA-1273, is that it has been rolled out in a matter of weeks, not years, and on February 24 went directly to Fauci’s NIH for tests on human guinea pigs, not on mice as normal. Moderna’s chief medical adviser, Tal Zaks, argued, ‘I don’t think proving this in an animal model is on the critical path to getting this to a clinical trial.’ ”

Police in California Plan to Use Drones to Enforce Quarantine Lockdown – by John Vibes – – “Surveillance drones were used during the lockdown in China to monitor neighborhoods to ensure that residents were staying indoors. Drones were also used to spray disinfectants during the outbreak as well… The World Health Organization (WHO) has urged additional governments to use similar tactics to enforce quarantines. Police in Spain have been using drones to patrol the streets and order citizens to stay home during the lockdown… Most Americans doubted that these types of measures would happen at home, but police in California have already announced a plan to use drones equipped with cameras and loudspeakers to enforce the recently imposed quarantine orders… In Chula Vista, a town just outside of San Diego, police purchased at least two drones from the Chinese company DJI for $11,000 each… Vern Sallee, one of the city’s police captains, told the Financial Times that the drones could be used to “disperse crowds” without the need for a human officer to be involved.

Democrats Block Crucial Coronavirus Relief Bill, Sending Markets into Freefall – by Jay Greenberg – – “Senate Democrats blocked the critical $2 trillion coronavirus economic relief package in a 47-47 vote on Sunday night… The move has reportedly sent futures markets into freefall, plummeting by over 5 percent. Democrats have stalled the plan to pass the bill by Monday and send it to the House for a vote, according to the Washington Examiner. President Donald Trump and congressional leaders were hoping the measure would send a signal to help stabilize the stock market and U.S. economy.”

Line For New Jersey ‘Drive-Thru’ Testing Facility Is ‘Thousands Of Cars Long’ – by Tyler Durden – – “According to the Bergen County Record, when reporters visited, all the entrances to the new coronavirus drive-thru testing center at Bergen Community College were blocked off by noon on Friday, and signs warned that the facility was at capacity. Yet many persisted, with hundreds of cars lining up along Paramus Road, waiting to get closer to the facility… Trying to maintain order, police tried to direct traffic and shouted orders through megaphones… ‘It’s quite possible folks are going to have to wait a few hours,’ said Christopher Neuwirth, assistant health commissioner for the state… Videos that were posted online captured the intensity of the scene.”

Israel Debates ‘Total Suspension Of Individual Freedom’ In Knesset Intel Hearing – by Tyler Durden – – “After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced last Saturday that authorities will tap the country’s ‘counter-terror’ technology and systems to combat the “invisible enemy” of Covid-19, Israeli media is now reporting the government is actually considering the “total suspension of individual freedom” as a new Haaretz headline reads… Israel’s public health services chief is now urging just that: Sigal Sadetsky told the Knesset Subcommittee on Intelligence and Secret Services this week that “A lockdown and personal monitoring of people, and a total halt to personal freedoms” is urgently necessary.”

Despite Pandemic, Lawmakers Push for Even More Spending on Fighter Jets – by Eoin Higgins – – “As the federal government develops strategies for how to deal with the coronavirus outbreak that has already significantly damaged the U.S. economy and killed hundreds of Americans, a group of lawmakers are urging Congress approve the purchasing of 19 more F-35 fighters than the Pentagon requested as part of the battle against the disease, enraging progressives… ‘Infuriating doesn’t even begin to describe it,’ tweeted Stephen Miles, executive director of Win Without War, on Friday.”

From the Official-U.S.-Propaganda Desk: Analysts: Russia Using Virus Crisis to Sow Discord in West – by Zlatica Hoke – – “Reuters news agency reported Wednesday that the European External Action Service issued a nine-page internal document March 16 saying that ‘the overarching aim of Kremlin disinformation is to aggravate the public health crisis in Western countries … in line with the Kremlin’s broader strategy of attempting to subvert European societies.’.. But Russia analysts tell VOA that the Russian government is using every means possible to use the coronavirus crisis to its advantage as part of its information warfare against the West… ‘Some talk shows even spread conspiracy theories, claiming that the U.S. government has invented and is testing coronavirus as means of biological warfare.’.. Eltsov says the goal of this propaganda is to sow chaos and dissension in the EU, NATO and the United States… U.S. Congress has found indisputable evidence that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, and many officials say there is no doubt that Moscow plans to do so again in this year’s election… Klaus Larres, professor of international affairs at the University of North Carolina, noted that Russia has used every opportunity it has had to weaken Europe, notably during the 1973 oil crisis and 2008 global financial crisis… ‘It is hardly surprising that some Russian state actors are attempting to exploit the coronavirus crisis through conspiracy theories disseminated on the internet,’ he told VOA.” – Comment: You can’t make this stuff up.

Terrorists In Idlib Received Additional Funding Of $2m For Weapons, Operations Against Syrian Army, Russians – “The additional funding reportedly includes operations against Russian military personnel and journalists in Syria. Recently, sources affilated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other large armed groups started offering bounties for killing or capturing Russian journalists or military personnel involved in operations along the M4 and M5 highways. Radical organizations also increased their propagnada and recruiting campaign exploting the current ceasefire regime… The additional funding reportedly includes operations against Russian military personnel and journalists in Syria. Recently, sources affilated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other large armed groups started offering bounties for killing or capturing Russian journalists or military personnel involved in operations along the M4 and M5 highways. Radical organizations also increased their propagnada and recruiting campaign exploting the current ceasefire regime.”

US government threatens families of Int’l Criminal Court staff if they try Americans for war crimes – – “This blatant US threat against the family members of International Criminal Court prosecutors is part of a longer historical pattern of Washington attacking multilateral institutions… At the beginning of the George W. Bush administration’s so-called war on terror, in 2002, the US Congress passed a bill called the American Service-Members’ Protection Act — more commonly known as the “Hague Invasion Act.”.. This unprecedented piece of legislation, which has no precedent anywhere else in the world, declares that the US government unilaterally grants itself the right to militarily invade the Hague if a citizen of the United States or any allied country is tried at the court.”

Idlib Radicals Block M4 Highway Again Hours After Its Reopening By Turkish Troops – “The protesters’ move pose a serious challenge to Turkey, whose military reopened the highway a day earlier. Turkish forces removed several barriers and deployed pre-made barracks along the highway. Reopening the M4 highway, which links the coastal city of Lattakia with Aleppo, is the keystone of the Russian Turkish agreement reached on March 5. If Turkey fail to fulfill this term, the entire agreement will likely collapse… Radical militants, who threatened any force that would move to reopen the highway, attacked a convoy of the Turkish military on March 19. The attack, which took place on the highway itself, claimed the lives of two Turkish soldiers… Turkey is serious about reopening the highway. Nevertheless, Ankara’s influence over Greater Idlib militants, who have been receiving support from it for around nine years, appears to be too weak.”

Stanford Professor Suggests We Are Severely Overreacting To Coronavirus – by David Lindfield – – “The co-director of Stanford University’s Meta-Research Innovation Center, John P.A. Ioannidis, wrote in an opinion piece this week a warning to Americans that participating in voluntary shutdowns and allowing the government to set curfews and manipulate the free market before dependable data collected could be a mistake… The professor of medicine, population health, statistics, biomedical data science, and epidemiology described the the current collection of data as “utterly unreliable” due to the inability to test everyone who had potentially been infected… Ioannidis said that coronavirus may be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco.”.. Admitting that social distancing and lockdowns may be initially sowing the spread of the virus (sic), he questions how feasible it is to maintain these restrictions as part of a long term plan… Ioannidis also inquired how politicians will be able to report on the impact of the restrictions and determine when to restore economic freedom.” (emphasis added)

Mapping out the Banking Elite’s Goal for a Cashless Monetary System – Part One – by Steven Guinness – – “Six years on from the BOE’s research, the digital currency agenda has advanced significantly in the face of increased geopolitical instability. An area of interest that has garnered scant attention is the ‘utility settlement coin‘ (USC) project that several global banks have been heavily invested in. It is a project that has now evolved through the inception of Fnality International, a consortium of shareholders that includes UBS, Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group… Here is a breakdown of some of the key events which have taken place in regards to USC since the BOE’s research was published…”

Covid-19 Global Lockdown – by CJ Hopkins – – “No, there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that Covid-19 is the deadliest global pandemic humankind has ever faced, and that we have no choice but to cancel everything, confine everyone inside their home, wreck the entire global economy, force working class people even further into debt, pour trillions into the investment banks, cancel elections, censor the Internet, and otherwise implement a global police state… But what if it wasn’t? Just hypothetically. What if this wasn’t the deadliest global pandemic humankind has ever faced? (I’m just posing the question as a thought experiment, so please don’t report me to the WHO, or the CDC, or FEMA, or whoever.) What if this new coronavirus was just another coronavirus like all the other coronaviruses that people die from (or with) all the time? What if the fact that this one is “new” didn’t really mean all that much, or possibly anything at all, because coronaviruses are always mutating, and every year there are a lot of new variants?.. Relax, OK? I know this one is different, and totally unlike anything ever encountered by virologists in the history of virology. Remember, this is just a thought experiment. These are just hypothetical questions.”

What an Incredibly Useful Little Virus This Has Been for the Power Elite – Instead of taking the blame for the global economic crash they get to play martial law – by Marko Marjanović –’m not saying it’s a conspiracy. But if it was, what would be any different?.. This hysteria pandemic has been such godsend to them. So much so that if I were in their place I would be looking to extend it for as long as possible… I would make sure everyone who died while having coronavirus would be counted as its victim. And I would drown the land with corona test kits (who cares just how reliable they are having been approved so quickly) to make sure the number of infected keeps rising for as long as possibleas an ever-greater proportion of your usual seasonal patients with flu-like symptoms are identified as having the dreaded covid-19… If Trump is smart he’ll put the US under an European-style martial law to extend the crisis. The bigger the virus hysteria and the greater the fallout from anti-virus measures the more believable his claim in November that it was a great economy until the unfortunate act of nature/god.”

The Coronavirus CONSPIRACY – Did COVID-19 Come from America? (by Nathan Rich – 19 min) – Comment: Nathan explores much of the evidence suggesting that “COVID-19” (or a precursor?) was active in the U.S. months before the outbreak of “the Pandemic) in Wuhan.

Breaking/Exclusive: US Brought COVID-19 to China with Fake Army Team for Military Games, Evidence Mounting – “The US team did so badly that they were called “Soy Sauce Soldiers” by the Chinese. In fact, many never participated in any event and stayed near the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where the disease is said to have originated only days after the US left the area… The US team went home on October 28, 2019, and within 2 weeks, the first human contact cases of COVID 19 were seen in Wuhan. The Chinese have not been able to find “patient zero” and believe he was a member of the US team… They also have sources that say the US had misrepresented influenza that Trump claims have killed thousands, influenza carried to China by the US team, influenza that was really COVID 19, a disease developed in a military bio-warfare facility in the state of Washington, now “ground zero” in the US for COVID 19… The Chinese claim, something censored in the US, that the inattentive attitude and disproportionately below average results of American athletes in the game indicates they might have been in for other purposes and they might actually be bio-warfare operatives, and that their place of residence during their stay in Wuhan was also close to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where the first known cluster of cases occurred.”

Why Assume There Will Be a 2020 election? General Butler and the ‘Wall Street Putsch’ Revisited – by Matthew Ehret – – “The upcoming American elections are just around the corner and everyone is wondering if the new president will be named Trump, Biden, Sanders or none of the above… I can hear the incredulous reader exclaim: Wait, what does “none of the above” mean?? It’s certainly going to be one of those three isn’t it??.. It is often too easy to lose sight of the forest for the trees and in the opinion-packed world of endless talking head commentaries, every leaf and branch is scrutinized by professional opinionators so closely that many forget that the entire forest is on fire. As I’ve written extensively here and here and here, the reality is that the western financial system is careening towards a crash much worse than anything the world saw in 1929, and the deep state trying to manage this wreck from above would love nothing more than to impose a fascist dictatorship onto a frightened population.”

Why the coronavirus pandemic may fast-forward 5G adoption in the US – by Todd Wasserman – – “Whole cities have emptied under the coronavirus threat as businesses tell employees to work from home, students are sent indoors to learn online and every type of entertainment— from restaurants and sporting venues to movie theaters — shutters, forcing people to stay home and rely on their home broadband networks to interact with the outside world… This switch-over is unprecedented, which begs the question: Can our current networks handle the strain?.. Moreover, is the coronavirus outbreak and the “social distancing″ required to mitigate the spread going to become the business case for more advanced and robust 5G technologies for a future in which business, health care and human interaction must be at more than an arm’s length?.. Carriers may be able to argue that this sudden influx of workers from home necessitates more investment in 5G. Meanwhile, Wi-Fi 6, which is just hitting the market, improves the speed of home Wi-Fi… Coupled with Wi-Fi 6, 5G may yet revolutionize the market for stay-at-home workers. But it remains uncertain on how fast this will happen.”

Creating and Exploiting the Coronavirus Crisis – by Makia Freeman – – “THE STORY: As the coronavirus crisis unfolds, governments around the world are granting themselves new powers… THE IMPLICATIONS: They engineered the virus (the problem), they generated fear and panic (the reaction); what are the sweeping, transformative changes (the solution) the NWO controllers are trying to implement upon a scared, distracted and compliant population?

The New War on Bioterror: Everyone is a Suspected or Asymptomatic Carrier – by Makia Freeman – – “THE STORY: US President Donald Trump has just said the US is at war against a hidden enemy. Other governments worldwide have said the same. Are we exiting the War on Terror and entering the War on Bioterror?.. THE IMPLICATIONS: Under conditions of hype, panic, fear and war, rationality and normal human rights disappear. Is the government about to turn on everyone? Is everyone a guilty “suspect” (i.e. a suspected carrier) until proven innocent?.. In the old war on terror, the government had to try to frame you as a terrorist or extremist for your actions or views. Now, in the new war on bioterror, everyone is a potential suspect. Since viruses are so microscopically tiny, there’s no way to know if anyone is a carrier or not without being tested (and even then, the PCR test has some serious flaws). People not showing of signs of sickness could still be asymptomatic carriers. Do you see where this is going? What is to stop the government from making you a (public health) enemy and stripping your rights based on the assertion that you are a carrier? The psychological operation in play here is that they want you to submit to quarantine, accept less freedom and roll up your arm sleeve to get a mandatory vaccination with embedded Bill Gates digital ID2020 chips – all to play your part in the new war on bioterror.” – Comment: A Brilliant analysis of the current Bio-War phenomenon.

9/11 Truth, Coronavirus Truth: Zionist Hysteria, MSM Lockdown – by Kevin Barrett – – “We are now experiencing 911-2B, the coronavirus black swan. Just as 9/11 terrorized, shocked, and shut down the USA for a few days, it seems that Covid-19 will do the same, only more so. Instead of a few days, we may be shut down for a few months, maybe even a few years. And once again, Zionists are hysterically pushing back against those of us questioning the official story. The Israel-lobby propaganda site The Algemeiner recently published a hit piece headlined Islamists Call Coronavirus a Zionist-American Conspiracy. It featured the following attack on yours truly: ‘Press TV, meanwhile, published an article by American conspiracy theorist Kevin Barrett to back the claim that the coronavirus is a US-Israeli conspiracy using biological warfare to hurt Iran. ‘US, Israel waging biological warfare on massive scale,’ was the March 7 story’s headline… ‘Barrett, a “9/11 truther,” got crazier in the story”

Fed Expands Dollar Swap Lines With Nine More Central Banks Amid Unprecedented Dollar Short Squeeze – “As we reported yesterday, one of the recommendations proposed by repo “god” Zoltan Pozsar to restore dollar liquidity and eliminate funding and market stress, was for the Fed to effectively become banker to the entire world in the form of unlimited, 24/7 swap lines with every central bank, not just the current G7, to wit: ‘The Fed needs to broaden access to the swap lines to other jurisdictions as dollar funding needs are large in Scandinavia, Southeast Asia, Australia and South America, not just in the G-7.’.. Well, after an overnight session that saw currencies flash crash across Asia, notably the Aussie… … demonstrating just how urgently instant dollar access is needed at a time of the biggest dollar margin call in history, the Fed relented, and on Thursday morning the Federal Reserve announced the establishment of temporary U.S. dollar liquidity arrangements (swap lines) with: ● the Reserve Bank of Australia, ● the Banco Central do Brasil, ● the Danmarks Nationalbank (Denmark), ● the Bank of Korea, ● the Banco de Mexico, ● the Norges Bank (Norway), ● the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, ● the Monetary Authority of Singapore, ● and the Sveriges Riksbank (Sweden)… According to the release, ‘these facilities, like those already established between the Federal Reserve and other central banks, are designed to help lessen strains in global U.S. dollar funding markets, thereby mitigating the effects of these strains on the supply of credit to households and businesses, both domestically and abroad.’ ”

In Photos: Heavily Armed Turkish ‘Observation’ Post In Northwest Hama Is Surrounded By Syrian Army – “On March 18, Russian journalist Oleg Blokhin released photos showing a heavily armed Turkish “observation” post in northwestern Hama… The “observation” post, located near the town of Shir Mughar, is currently besieged by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The photos, likely taken by a Russian drone, show several battle tanks, armored vehicles and self-propelled howitzers inside the post.”

Is This The Next Big Headache For Global Economy? – by Tyler Durden – – “The events of the last several weeks have ominously demonstrated that dollar shortage has returned with a vengeance, as new headaches for virus-battered emerging markets will find it hard to cope with falling local currencies and demand…. The dollar shortage was confirmed last week in both the Bloomberg Dollar index and the FRA/OIS spread, a closely followed indicator of interbank dollar funding availability that has spiked higher, indicating rising stress… The Federal Reserve’s massive monetary “bazooka” including trillions of dollars for repo markets and the launch of $700 billion QE5 and return to ZIRP, as well as an emergency six POMO operations last week has failed to boost risk sentiment, and the FRA/OIS has yet to show any signs of relief, as it has surged to the highest level since the financial crisis. The Fed’s monetary cannon may have solved the corporate liquidity crisis for the time being. Still, the dollar/liquidity shortage in the global financial system continues to worsen as investors are dumping emerging markets in record numbers and scrambling for dollars.”

Bolivia: Añez Uses Police to Enforce Measures Against COVID-19 – “At the end of her speech, the so-called president requested the support of the military and police forces to ensure compliance with these measures. The troops carry their weapons during their duties on the public streets with the civilian population.”

Lindsey Graham’s New Law (EARN IT) Would End Internet Privacy for Good – by Eric Striker – – “A new bill sponsored by Lindsey Graham, Richard Blumenthal, Josh Hawley and Dianne Feinstein called the EARN IT Act of 2020 will force encrypted communication providers, like Telegram and Protonmail, to give American intelligence services the ability to wiretap private chats or face steep legal penalties. The law’s supporters are using the cover of coronavirus panic to quietly advance it without much of a debate… According to the bill’s text, it is intended to fight sex trafficking and child pornography online by criminally implicating tech companies that do not create a back channel for federal law enforcement to access on a whim. The nuts and bolts on how this will work has been kept opaque. A committee composed of members of the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security will set the terms only after it passes… Graham and Blumenthal are both dyed in the wool Zionists, not child advocates. Dianne Feinstein, who represents Silicon Valley, is unlikely to have put her name to this bill without the explicit support of Facebook, Google, and other big tech firms suffering from a well-deserved lack of public trust. Josh Hawley, who claims to be a populist, appears to be attempting to channel wide support for ending tech censorship towards the nefarious end of increasing it. ”

This Should Go Well: Philadelphia Police to Stop Arresting Criminals Over Coronavirus Concerns – by Cassandra Fairbanks – – “The Fraternal Order of Police has supported the decision to stop arrests in the crime-ridden city and noted that violent offenders will still be arrested… ‘The directive was released to keep officers safe during this public-health crisis,’ FOP Lodge 5 president, John McNesby, said in a statement obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer. “’eanwhile, violent offenders will be arrested and processed with the guidance of a police supervisor.’.. According to, your chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Philadelphia was one in 25, before arrests were even halted.”

Coronavirus: The Plot Thickens – Researchers have greatly advanced their understanding of viral evolution since H1N1 a decade ago and finding patient zero is now more science than art – Submitted by Godfree Roberts – A damning timeline of apparent global malfeasance.

This Is What A $12 Trillion Dollar Margin Call Looks Like – by Tyler Durden – – “And, as we noted previously, the events of last week so ominously demonstrated, the dollar shortage is back with a vengeance, as confirmed by last week’s concurrent surge in both the Bloomberg Dollar index and the FRA/OIS spread, a closely followed indicator of interbank dollar funding availability… And it may come as a shock to some but ever since the financial crisis nothing has been actually fixed, and instead the Fed stepped in at every market stress event to inject more liquidity, aiding the issuance of even more debt, and kicking the can while while helping mask the symptoms of the crisis, only made the underlying financial instability even more acute. Meanwhile conventional wisdom that the US banking system was rendered more stable now are dead wrong, with the public and countless financial professionals fooled by the nearly two trillion in excess reserves (we all saw what happened when this number dropped to a precarious “low” of “only” $1.3 trillion in September of 2019) injected by the Fed in recent years. All this liquidity upon liquidity has only made the system that much more reliant on the Fed’s constant bailouts and liquidity injections.”

Syrian Army Repels Large ISIS Attack In Eastern Homs – “Meanwhile, opposition sources told Germany’s DPA news agency that 20 Syrian soldiers were killed in the attack. The sources claimed that many others service members were captured by ISIS terrorists… These claims may be false. Pro-government sources have not reported any losses in the SAA’s ranks in central Syria, so far… ISIS cells in central Syrian, mainly in the Homs desert, stepped up their attacks in the last few months. The terrorists made several attempts to block the Homs-Deir Ezzor highway, all were foiled by the SAA.”

Corona Bologna: The Truth Begins to Leak Out in Italy — The Overwhelming Majority of Deaths Are Linked to Other Illnesses – by Jon Rappoport – – “Seems the president of the Italian Higher Institute has some smarts. He understands that people who already have other serious health conditions, which have nothing to do with COV, can and do die from those other conditions, regardless of the fact that they’ve tested positive (on useless tests) for COV. He gets it. I predict a great future for him. If he keeps shooting his mouth off, he might find himself working as a weed puller in a forest. Or he might suddenly be diagnosed with the virus and find himself in isolation… Grit your teeth and plow through this piece from Rome, 13 March 2020, Agenzia Nova: “Coronavirus: ISS [Italian National Institute of Health]: in Italy there are only two deaths ascertained so far due to Covid-19” (Italian, English)”

Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine to Skip Animal Testing – Test Directly on Humans – by Dr. Robert J. Rowen – – “Now the above should tell the entire story of the EVIL medical paradigm of today. For the sake of vaccination, THEY are skipping accepted medical ethics, and placing human scared volunteers at risk… At the same time, the system castigates those of us who do therapies (proven safe) outside the mainstream… And, while they report on the sensationalism of a vaccine, no mainstream outlet will give a safety-proven and likely effective therapy – oxidation – the time of day… Just today I was told that a seasoned and respected reporter for a major New York paper, who suddenly turned believer in oxidation therapy when a non-healing wound on her foot healed for about 10 USD topical oxidation treatment, was refused her story on ozone therapy for coronavirus by every news outlet… They called it “fringe” science.”

The swine flu fraud of 1976, on 60 Minutes (16 min)

CV19 Not Chinese at all, Engineered, Deep State and Proving it is easier and easier – by Ian Greenhalgh – – “Sometimes clues come from the most unexpected sources, a couple of days ago we got one such clue from a notorious, disgraced Israeli disinfo shill who wrote about the ‘nice people’ at the Gatestone Institute and how they had published a story about the virus has escaped from a Chinese bio lab in Wuhan… The mere mention of the Gatestone Institute immediately set off my bullshit detector and I decided to look into the matter. Long time VT readers will be familiar with the Gatestone Institute and its notorious head, Nina Rosenwald the arch Zionist pro-Israel former board member of AIPAC and JINSA, two organizations at the heart of the Israeli lobby in the US that are deeply complicit in Israeli’s nefarious meddling in US politics. These are not ‘nice people’, they are anything but, these are the traitorous scum of the earth that have actively assisted the rape and murder of the USA by the Zionist criminals… The offending article was penned by an Italian called Giulio Meotti and can be found here: Coronavirus: China’s War on the Truth by Giulio Meotti, March 7, 2020… I’ll cut to the chase – this article is utter bullcrap and Giulio Meotti is an Israeli disinfo operative… So, why do we have a bunch of notorious Israeli stooges promoting a fraudulent narrative about the origins of the virus?.. The answer is obvious they are covering for the fact that the virus outbreak is the work of the Israelis, an act of bioterrorism on a grand scale… ‘Of course, the hidden hands that control virtually the entire globe and its economy were not prepared to allow the Chinese to become the dominant economic, industrial and military power, so they decided to wage war on China; an undeclared war that is unlike any that preceded it as it is not being fought on battlefields by militaries nor in the skies by aircraft and missiles… A quick rundown of some of the offensive actions taken against China leaves one in little doubt that a concerted campaign is been waged against the Asian powerhouse:… Italy has broken away from the herd and dared to forge ahead with trade & economic policies that are drawing it into China’s orbit, this is simply not acceptable to the international Zionist criminals, they want China to be isolated, bereft of allies and therefore vulnerable… Italy’s ‘reward’ for daring to ally itself with China is to become a victim of Israeli bio-terrorism and it will be hit very hard, just to make sure that every other nation is scared off from forging deals with China or joining its Belt & Road Initiative… Expect things to get much worse in Italy, for they are being made an example of and the punishment is going to be severe in order to thoroughly scare and intimidate any and all world leaders… The message is clear – ally with China and you face the same fate as Italy.”

U.S. Forces Withdraw From Key Base Near Syrian Border. More Rocket Attacks On US Targets In Iraq (Video 3min) –

U.S. Joins Al-Qaeda Efforts To Undermine Russian-Turkish Ceasefire Agreement In Idlib – “Thus, he (Pompeo) alleged that Russia itself killed “dozens of Turkish soldiers”… Earlier in the day, Syrian Defense Minister Lieutenant General Ali Abdullah Ayoub was sanctioned by the US, for ‘perpetuating the violence and the disastrous humanitarian crisis inside of Syria. His deliberate actions since December of 2019 have prevented a ceasefire from taking hold inside of Syria. The obstruction resulted in the displacement of almost a million people in dire need of humanitarian aid in the midst of a cold winter in Idlib.’.. Of course, the “bloody Assad regime” is, also, not the only one to blame – since plenty of guilt lies in its enablers – Russia and Iran… ‘The Assad regime’s forces, backed by Russia and Iranian-supported forces, have been responsible for the continued bombardments that destroyed schools and hospitals and killed civilians, including medical professionals and first responders who were risking their lives to save others inside of Syria.’.. ‘So our goal is to inventory here in Brussels with our European and NATO colleagues what are the military, the diplomatic, the economic, the sanctions, and the media and outreach steps we can take to encourage Russia and Syria not to do what we think they want to do, which is to break the ceasefire, push these 3 million refugees across the border, but rather to think twice. If they ignore our warnings, if they ignore our preparations and move forward, we will then react as rapidly as possible in consultation with our European and NATO allies on what the package of sanctions and other reactions will be.’ –United States Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey… Thus, the US is actively working to undermine the deal, and at the same time says that if the deal fails, Russia would be to blame and would be sanctioned for it.”

In Video: Idlib Militant Group Dug Giant Trench Across M4 Highway To Sabotage Russian-Turkish Patrols This action by forces associated with Hayat Tahrir al Sham (al Quaeda) signals the clear ending of the possibility of a workable cease-fire in Idlib.

‘Enemy is the Virus’: EU Imposes 30-Day Travel Ban Amid COVID-19 Pandemic – “Merkel revealed that EU member states had “agreed to impose an entry ban” that provides travel exemptions to nationals of European Free Trade Association countries and Britain, according to the Telegraph… European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen expressed during a March 17 news conference that it will be the responsibility of bloc leaders to establish their border closures.”

Netanyahu Gives Himself Broad Phone Tapping Powers To Fight “Invisible Enemy” Coronavirus – “Well at the very least he was honest about taking Israeli society down the road of Orwellian police state in the name of “protection” from the pandemic. However, we would note that it’s the first we’ve heard of a country openly touting its counter-terror technology and domestic spying as being used to fight the virus, with the exception of China… Netanyahu said these are ‘means that until today I have refrained from using among the civilian population.’.. Meanwhile, former US special forces soldier and now journalist Jack Murphy put it more bluntly: ‘Once these “emergency measures” are implemented, they will never ever be repealed.’.. Likely soon to come to your country, and a neighborhood near you.”

From the Be-Afraid-Be-VERY-Afraid Desk: Terrifying’ (!!!) New Study Warns 2.2 Million People Could Die in US Without Drastic Action – “Only now is the White House coming out of denial and heading straight into saying it could not have been foreseen.” – – “An alarming scientific report compiled by British researchers and shared with the Trump White House warns that, in the absence of drastic and coordinated government action, the novel coronavirus could kill as many as 2.2 million people in the United States alone… The new research (pdf), led by epidemiologist Dr. Neil Ferguson and published Monday by the Imperial College of London, shows that merely acting to slow rather than completely stop the spread of COVID-19 would ‘still likely result in hundreds of thousands of deaths and health systems (most notably intensive care units) being overwhelmed many times over.’.. ‘For countries able to achieve it, this leaves suppression as the preferred policy option,’ the researchers wrote.”

Friends Of David Goldberg – FINAL WORDS: Classified docs reveal DEADLY “Project Zyphr” – “Friends of David Goldberg will continue to compile his information and will release it after we receive legal permission to do so. At this time, the release of the classified documents may constitute a crime, so we are looking at all legal avenues to release them. We feel David’s audio file should be released in the spirit of truth and free press… ‘David Goldberg found dead in his New York apartment after predicting Iran War false flags: – Learn more at our blog:” – Comment: This is very extreme information. You may not want to listen to it if you’re concerned about having your limbic sytem overstimulated…

From the Rainbows-And-Unicorns Desk: In the midst of converging crises, the Green New Deal is the answer – by Avi Lewis – – “In fact, the response to this period of converging crises is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the federal government to initiate a reset of our economy and society, putting Canada on a path toward zero emissions, and bringing immediate material benefits and enhanced, 21st century universal public services to everyone – prioritizing Indigenous, racialized and working class communities – that is, the people who need them most… In other words, this is the ideal moment for Canada to launch the decade of the Green New Deal, a sweeping vision launched nationally last spring by more than 150 climate and social justice organizations, building on momentum south of the border from U.S. congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise climate movement. Essentially, it recommends an unprecedented public investment in a justice-based transition that creates a vast number of well-paying (preferably unionized) jobs, solves our crises in housing, crumbling infrastructure, health and education, inadequate transit, and deep inequality. This kind of public investment would vastly expand the tax base and stabilize the economy at the same time.”

From the WTF Desk: If This Is Contrived Political Hysteria, What Is The Objective? – “I’m beginning to believe the current “pandemic” is perhaps just the latest contrived “enemy of the state”. An opportunity taken by western governments that have, over the past 20 or 30 years, gotten bolder in their willingness to fabricate fear to secure a political end. Political ends are always about greater control, corruption, and ultimately, cover ups… In the age where air has become second to digital noise in terms of ubiquity, and hyperbole has replaced truth as the journalistic objective, governments’ ability to leverage misinformation (i.e. propaganda) has become a precision tool. Like it or not, society has become confused by the amount of information thrown at us and that makes us susceptible… Right now a bill is making its way through Congress that most legislators, have admittedly, not read but are ready to approve. And perhaps the most glaring action is the $5 trillion financial bail out that took place over the weekend. This is by far, the biggest financial industry bailout ever to take place, at least on this planet. Most Americans have no idea a bailout is taking place and those that do will never come to know that the bailout began in early September. On September 2nd, the Fed began its second epic “bank bailout”. That is, it has nothing to do with the virus… And it isn’t just banks but the entire sport of speculation that require a bailout. The leverage inherent in the sport of speculation, across all asset classes, has created an aggregate risk position so large there is no longer enough cash to cover the margin call… This past weekend, once again the Fed announced a $5 trillion bailout and it went completely unnoticed by the public because we are distracted by a “world ending virus”. The largest financial bailout in the history of the world and nobody knows it happened because the focus is on a virus that to date, has resulted in 50 deaths in America (at the same time 8,000 deaths have resulted from the flu in America)… If I were to show these figures (from above in article) to an alien and ask them to identify which scenario resulted in a lockdown of society, which do you suspect they’d point to? Exactly. 100% of you pointed to Swine Flu. 100% of you… So how is it that the western governments picked Covid? And more importantly, why?”

From the Be-Afraid-Be-VERY-Afraid Desk: Congress Must Pass $2 Trillion TARP Or Face Global Depression: Minerd – by Tyler Durden – – “The idea that Congress can address one failing industry at a time—like the airlines now with the $50 billion proposed bailout package—is wrongminded. ● As the economy continues to slow, crisis will start to cascade through many industries, and the problems will come faster and faster. ● The Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the Coronavirus emergency funding bill currently in front of Congress demonstrates how long it takes to react to something. There really needs to be a dedicated pool of money that is available to step in and salvage viable companies that are struggling. ● And remember, TARP was a money-making exercise for the government. We should get away from the idea that we are bailing people out. With TARP, the U.S. government becomes a distressed investor, and also is helping to sustain the economy and the working class. ● This is the scenario that leads to global depression. Should policymakers fail to get these sorts of programs in place quickly, there is increasing risk that we could fall into a deep, dark spiral.”

From the Shape-Of-Things Desk: Federal government to control and oversee grocery distribution with govt / private sector partnerships: Wal-Mart, Costco, Target, Kroger, top grocery chains to be deemed “critical infrastructure” – National Guard to protect key distribution points – by Mike Adams – – “Breaking news alert – – The US federal government is in the planning stage of implementing a plan to protect and control grocery distribution across the United States via public / private partnerships with top grocery chains such as Wal-Mart, Kroger, HEB (Texas), Target, Costco, etc., high-level sources now tell Natural News. The effort is being made to ensure the smooth delivery of food supplies to the public as a coronavirus lockdown is about to commence on a regional basis, and food supplies are necessary to prevent social unrest, lawlessness and looting… Natural News has learned details of this plan which we are told is in the final stages of being completed, with some measure of rollout to begin as early as just a few days from now in at least one region of the country. We were also told that we got the attention of the administration when I appeared on the Alex Jones Show two weeks ago and delivered predictions numbers that closely matched the classified numbers the CDC and HHS already had, none of which had been released to the public. This “caused alarm” in certain circles, we were told, because the CDC thought they had a leak to Natural News (which apparently would be the end of the world at the CDC). They later concluded that we had reached the same conclusions based on mathematical models, not any leak.”

From the Shape-Of-Things Desk: Helicopter Money Arrives: White House To Send Checks To Americans Within 2 Weeks, Mnuchin Says – by Tyler Durden – – “Meanwhile, President Trump, returning to the mic, told reporters that he hoped to send $1,000 to every American. He also took a swipe at spring breakers, saying he was “not happy” about people disobeying the guidelines… That would cost the Treasury ~$330 billion, plus whatever more in processing fees (tough using ‘liberal math’, the cost would be much, much higher.… Just to recap: Kudlow gave the market the first whiff of helicopter money yesterday, then Bill Dudley followed that up this morning, along with a few well-placed leaks, with Mnuchin delivering the final touches before sprinting off to the capitol.”

From the Shape-Of-Things Desk: PREP Act Invoked Nationwide for the First Time in U.S. History – Will Martial Law Follow? – by Wayne Rohde – – “The PREP Act was passed in December of 2005. Most of the emphasis for this act was born upon the federal government’s response to the Anthrax scare immediately after 9/11… Hidden in the Act is subsection (7) under declarations by the Secretary of HHS: (7) JUDICIAL REVIEW. – No court of the United States, or of any State, shall have subject matter jurisdiction to review, whether by mandamus or otherwise, any action by the Secretary under this subsection… CounterMeasures Injury Compensation Program: The CICP is very problematic in so many ways… First, the statute of limitations is only one (1) year versus three (3) years for injury in the NVICP… Second, the Program does not reimburse any medical expert fees or attorney fees. You are on your own, just filling out a petition form and submitting to HRSA… Third, there is no appeals process within a court system. Can’t appeal the decision to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals nor to the US Supreme Court… Fourth, all decisions are NOT disclosed, so they are not subject to public inspection.”

Here Come The Mass Layoffs: New York Unemployment Site Goes Down After “Tens Of Thousands” Lose Their Jobs – by Tyler Durden – – “In many ways the US economy is currently in the eye of the coronavirus storm: cities and states are under quarantine lockdown, the CDC has prohibited any groupings of more than 50 people; stores, clubs, restaurants, bars and hotels are voluntarily shuttering indefinitely as the economy grinds to a halt and yet besides a tapestry of ghost cities across the nation, the immediate impact of the devastating viral storm on the service economy has yet to manifest itself… But the hurricane is about to hit front and center, and the service-industry mecca of New York City is leading the way… As the Daily News reports, New York’s unemployment website was overwhelmed Monday as the coronavirus pandemic put tens of thousands of people across the state out of work.”

“Shelter in Place” Order for our city of Santa Cruz, California starts tonight at 12.01 am, announced in an email by our district supervisor. PDF of this very dicey order from appointed County Health Officer Gail Newel can be seen Here. Note: My wife’s business has been ordered closed…

Denmark rushes through emergency coronavirus law – “The far-reaching new law will remain in force until March 2021, when it will expire under a sunset clause… Trine Maria Ilsøe, DR’s court correspondent, said that Danish citizens could face prosecution under the new law if they refused to comply with health authorities’ demands. ‘It means that you could be sentenced to a punishment if you, for example, refuse to allow yourself to be tested for coronavirus,’ she said… The Ministry of Health will now work with the Ministry of Justice on the details of how the police will work with health officials to enforce their demands… As well as enforcing quarantine measures, the law also allows the authorities to force people to be vaccinated, even though there is currently no vaccination for the virus.” (emphasis added)

Global Economy Heads For Major Recession As Central Banks Increase Emergency Measures To Prevent Collapse Of Financial System – – – “This gigantic package of stimulus measures comes on top of the panic measures introduced last week as the meltdown in stock and bond markets began to get out of control. Last Thursday, as the bond market melted down and lines of credit were under threat the Fed announced an intervention in the short term debt markets (repo) that will run into April and amounts to over $4.5 trillion.… The political and economic elites of the American empire have boxed themselves into a corner and created an economic hurricane that threatens an economic depression similar to the 1930s… Since 2008 the Federal Reserve has presided over a gigantic wealth transfer as its massive money printing led to massive price inflation in paper assets across the board from stocks to bonds. The 1% have raked in massive profits while income levels for the majority have stood still or declined… It has kept interest rates at historically low levels enabling banks, hedge funds and corporations to gorge themselves on cheap debt and engage in a frenzy of stock buybacks to the tune of several trillion dollars… The political and economic elites of the American empire have boxed themselves into a corner and created an economic hurricane that threatens an economic depression similar to the 1930s… Since 2008 the Federal Reserve has presided over a gigantic wealth transfer as its massive money printing led to massive price inflation in paper assets across the board from stocks to bonds.

Ukrainian Radicals, Once Again, Sabotage Attempts At Reconciliation In Eastern Ukraine – “This news quickly overshadowed the news of some progress between Russia and Ukraine in Minsk, which had been announced the day before. There, representatives of Zelensky and Putin agreed to create a body for a political settlement in Eastern Ukraine… The situation is evidence that no political settlement and peace is possible in Eastern Ukraine, since the Kiev government can’t even protect its own staff from the actions of nationalists, and political actors from the era of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.”

US, British Troops In Aden, More To Arrive In Yemen Strategic Areas: Reports – “The US and British leaderships are responding to military setbacks of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen with deploying more and more troops in the country. The formal pretext is to ‘combat terrorism’. However, there is no secret that US and British forces are assisting Saudi operation against Ansar Allah (the Houthis) across Yemen.”

For the Week of 3/9/20:

The Fed’s Latest Welfare Payout to the Crooked Wall Street Banks – by Mike Whitney – “When an outside actor, like the Fed, intervenes in the market and creates fake demand for financial assets that investors have shunned, it is destroying the “central function” of the free market. It is asserting power over the market to set prices and, by doing so, assumes the role of Central Planner. That is what the Fed is doing by stopping the market from clearing. It is “price setting”. It is pushing stock prices higher than their true market value by loading up on mainly US Treasuries which dramatically distort rates while inflating the price of government bonds. We can only guess what the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury would be if the Fed had not purchased $2 trillion of them to save the insolvent banks from bankruptcy in 2008? And, in case there is any doubt about that matter, here is a straightforward admission (see article) by former-Fed chairman Ben Bernanke during the post-Lehman congressional hearings… The Fed is destroying the system it is entrusted to safeguard. It’s acting as a stooge for the banks instead of an impartial referee whose job is to oversee and regulate the financial system so capital is efficiently deployed to productive investments that benefit the American people. Does anyone think the Fed is acting within its mandate by pumping the system with liquidity so crooked banks can cream bigger profits off their casino operations?.. No one, and yet it continues… Keep in mind, the Trump administration has only allocated a lousy $8 billion to fund its response to coronavirus. So the American people –all 330 million of them– will get a whopping $8 billion while the crooked Wall Street banks get regular multi-trillion dollar infusions that allow them to swap their crappy, dog-eared securities for cold-hard cash. The banks will then roll over these 3-month loans indefinitely turning their short-term debts into perennial welfare payouts. Does that sound fair to you?”

No One wants This To Come Out About Coronavirus – Spread This, It Keeps Getting Censored – “In 2010 scientists in Wuhan published a study stating they combined HIV parts with SARS. This was building on a 2007 study where they tried combining a SARS-like bat coronavirus with HIV pseudovirus that was not previously infectious to humans. While they were researching the SARS-like bat Coronavirus, they were unhappy with the low rate at which it infected human cells. So they genetically altered it to make it infect human cells more effectively — by giving it an HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) outer shell, which enabled the SARS-like coronavirus to attack human cells via ACE2 receptors… 2015 study, scientists in Wuhan: They took a bat coronavirus and made a chimera virus that specifically attaches to the ACE2 protein to “to maximize the opportunity for pathogenesis and vaccine studies in mice”... And this is significant because what I just described pretty much sums up our current Coronavirus (first study published about COVID-19, ACE2 receptors, same scientists as the study from a decade ago, Peng Zhou) .”

New Iraqi Group Claims Responsibility For Camp Taji Attack – “A new Iraqi military group has claimed responsibility for the March 11 Camp Taji attack, which claimed the lives of three U.S.-led coalition service members… In an official statement released on March 15, the group, dubbed Ausbat al-Thaayirin (AT), confirmed its responsibility for the recent rocket attacks on Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troops… few days ago, Kata’ib Hezbollah (KH) released a statement calling on the perpetrators of the recent attacks to reveal themselves, promising to support them. KH was held responsible for these attacks by the U.S… AT appears to be a pro-Iranian Shiite group. The group vowed to respond to the assassination of Popular Mobilization Unties (PMU) Deputy-Commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Maj. Gen. Qassam Soleimani, Commander of Iran’s Quds Force.”

Syrian Opposition Supporters Intercept, Assault Their Turkish Allies On M4 Highway (Videos) – – “The Turkish convoy, which consisted of several battle tanks, armored vehicles and bulldozers, was tasked with opening the M4 to facilitate a joint Russian-Turkish patrol that was supposed to take place on the highway later… Opposition protesters blocked the highway by deploying obstacles and even climbing Turkish vehicles. This forced the convoy to withdraw. However, the protesters went on to stone the vehicles of their allies… Turkey’s failure to open the highway led to the cancellation of the pre-planned joint patrol. Russian and Turkish troops conducted a very limited patrol west of Saraqib city in southeast Idlib instead… The reopening of the M4 highway, which links the coastal city of Lattakia with Aleppo city, is the keystone of the recent Russian Turkish agreement on Greater Idlib… In the last few days, opposition activists and militants vowed to keep the highway blocked, threatening Russian forces and placing a bounty for killing Russian journalists.”

Looking at the Military Aspects of Biological Warfare – by The Saker – – “Here I have to, again, remind everybody that war is never an end by itself, but only a means towards an end, and that end is always POLITICAL. Going in just to kill people and even bombing a country back to the stone age does NOT qualify as a political goal. If you prefer, the political goal is what ought to be defined as “victory”. So, again, “destroying all enemy ships” or “pulling off a decapitating anti-leadership strike” are NOT political goals… There are several countries out there which are capable of developing bioweapons. In fact, most biolabs could manufacture a simple bioweapon using commonly found agents. But labs don’t get to decide to engage such weapons. That decision is clearly one which can only be taken at the national command center level and only following a compelling argument by military and scientific specialists. Finally, no responsible government would ever order the use of WMD if it felt that there is a risk of retaliation, both military or political… Finally, in the case of SARS-CoV-2 and of all the other epidemics/pandemics we see situation where the infection is not confined to the original infection site but goes global… As far as I know, and please correct me if I am wrong, but I know if no virus which has been successfully deployed against a specific target and then remained contained to that target. In other words, the risk of “collateral damage” from bioweapons is pretty close to infinite (at least potentially).”

Defender Europe 2020 can not be cancelled due to corona virus – Defender Europe 2020 or COVID-19. Who will win? – by Timoschuk – – “With the exception of civilian petitions, there are opinions of scholars and professional military personnel… According to the professors, the large troop movements within the framework of Defender Europe 2020 can contribute to the spread of corona virus infection throughout the European continent. And at the present time, the transfer of American troops to European ports is on the peak. And the source of a dangerous virus can be not only people. But also the transport in which dust particles containing the virus remained… The first canceled military events appear. Thus, the Finnish Ministry of Defense announced that Finnish troops will not take part in NATO’s major “Cold Response 2020” exercise. The U.S. and Israeli military exercises “Juniper cobra missile defense”, as well as the joint U.S.-South Korean exercises, have been canceled… Against this background, it would be logical if not to cancel, then at least postpone the “Defender Europe 2020” exercise.”

Photo, Video: Russian Military Police Waiting Turks For First Joint Patrol On M4 Highway – “On March 15, Russian war correspondent Eugene Poddubny published a photo and a video showing a unit of the Russian Military Police prepared for a joint patrol along the M4 highway in southern Idlib. According to Poddubny, the unit is now deployed in the northern vicinity of Saraqib and waiting Turkish forces to start the patrol… Earlier this week, the Turkish foreign ministry claimed that the first patrol will cover the entire agreed buffer zone – from west of Saraqib to the eastern vicinity of Jisr al-Shughur. However, this scenario remains highly unlikely because Jisr al-Shughur is a stronghold of the al-Qaeda-linked Turkistan Islamic Party. So, these ‘moderate rebels’ will be not happy to see the Russians there.”

M4 Highway Remains Blocked Less Than A Day Before First Planned Russian-Turkish Patrol (Video) – – “The sit-in began on March 13. The protesters are planning to prevent Russian and Turkish forces from conducting joint patrols on the highway in order to sabotage the recent Turkish-Russian agreement on Greater Idlib. Under the agreement, the first patrol should take place on March 15… A unit of the Turkish military made an attempt to end the sit-in and open the highway on March 14 noon. However, the protesters refused to evacuate, forcing the unit to retreat… The sit-in is by no mean peaceful, the protesters threatened to target any Russian unit that would approach the M4 highway. The threats were not limited to the protesters. A large unit of the Sham Corps, the biggest Turkish-backed group in Greater Idlib, released also a statement threatening Russian forces… ‘Any Russian patrol that would enter our land will be a target for us,’ the unit, known as the Ahl al-Sham Brigade, said in its statement.”

PROMIS VERSION 2.0? – by Joseph Farrell – – ” ‘The former acting inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security was indicted for alleged fraud and theft, according to the Department of Justice… Charles Edwards, 59, served as the acting inspector general for the agency between 2011 and 2013 as part of former President Barack Obama’s administration… Edwards, of Maryland, and 54-year-old Virginia resident Murali Yamazula Venkata were both charged with wire fraud conspiracy to commit theft of government property, conspiracy to defraud the United States, aggravated identity theft, and theft of government property. Additionally, Venkata, a former subordinate of Edwards, is accused of destroying records, said the Justice Department.’.. Let that sink in a moment: the Department of Homeland Security (or as we like to refer to it here, the Reichsicherheithauptamt, version 2.0), a central and crucial component of the US intelligence and counter-intelligence “community”, has had software stolen from its inspector general’s office, allegedly by an acting inspector general himself, who apparently intended to “re-sell” the software back to other departments of the federal swamp, which could pay for the “purchase” and never have to render any accounting, thank you FASAB56. Now, if this sounds to you a little bit like the PROMIS story, then join the club, because that’s the way it looks and smells to me as well. A little back door here, a little back door there, and voila, as the article points out, you have the names, addresses and so on of federal government employees. Indeed, one has to wonder if the software itself was not some updated version of PROMIS to begin with. (My bet? It was.)”

COVID-19: Social Distancing, Forced Quarantines and the End Game (53 min) – by Derrick Broze

Iraq’s Resistance Reveals How U.S. Troops Will Be Removed From Its Country – by Moon of Alabama – – “Yesterday the U.S. attacked five sites in Iraq and killed 3 Iraqi soldiers of the 19th Division, two policeman and a civilian. The strikes came after some 10+ rockets, fired by unknown people, had hit the joint base Camp Tali and had killed 2 U.S. and one British soldiers… Today the U.S. received the revenge for its strikes… The U.S. Central Command had argued that the “defensive precision strike” against the five sites created deterrence i.e. they would prevent other attacks: ‘We believe that this is going to have an effect on deterring — on deterring future strikes of this nature. We’ve seen in the past what happens when you don’t respond. Now people know that we’re not going to — we’re not going to tolerate these direct attacks on American or coalition service members, and we’re willing and able to respond.’.. Even hawkish analysts find that the argument is nonsense… The Iraqi police found the launch site from where today’s rocket volley was fired. Its pictures tell a lot about how this fight will go on until the U.S. occupation forces leave Iraq… This is a fixed camouflaged position under a roof. It was probably built months if not years ago. The launcher cases where dug into the ground of some shed. They were already adjusted in the planned strike direction. To launch the rockets one had simply to clear the top of camouflage, pull up the rocket launcher from the front and set the height adjusting stick up. One man could do that within a few minutes. The electrical launch command would then come from remote by a wire or cellphone… The setup of the position reminds one of similar positions the Lebanese Hizbullah has build in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza. The people who set up this launch position in Iraq seem to have received some training from experienced staff.”

From the Shape-Of-Things-To-Come Desk: (21 year-old) Liberty Activist “Murdered as He Slept” by SWAT Team Seizing His Guns — Lawyer – by Matt Agorist – – “In the process, according to Rene Sandler, an attorney for the family, police opened fire through an outside window and murdered Lemp and shot his girlfriend as they slept… According to ABC, Sandler said the family believes police fired gunshots, not a flashbang or other projectile, from outside the home, including through Lemp’s bedroom window, while he and his girlfriend were sleeping. Nobody in the home heard any warnings or commands before police opened fire, she said… ‘There is no warrant or other justification that would ever allow for that unless there is an imminent threat, which there was not,’ Sandler said… If history is any indicator, however, police will rule this killing justified after they investigate themselves… ‘He was pro-America and supported wholeheartedly all the protections of the Constitution,’ the family’s attorney said. ‘We believe that the body camera footage and other forensic evidence from this event will support what Duncan’s family already knows, that he was murdered.’ ”

Greek Border Guards Deploy Massive Fans Against Tear Gas, Start Building Border Wall – “Turkish media claim that the Greek border guards are using the fans to spread the tear gas they, themselves, are throwing, so as to not to harm themselves with their own gas, despite any logic… Meanwhile, Bulgarian authorities opened the Ivaylovgrad dam, so that Evros is flooded to make it harder to cross the river at the Turkish-Greek border crossing… On March 12th, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan added another insult to his repertoire, after years ago calling German Chancellor Angela Merkel a “Nazi,” then saying French President Emmanuel Macron is “brain dead,” now he said that Greece and the Greek are simply “Nazis” and “barbarians.”.. Merkel and Macron, who recently thanked Greece for guarding “Europe’s borders” and are to meet with Erdogan in Istanbul in a few days for talks that will include the new migrant crisis, are being called on to deal with the Turkish president and his out-of-control ambition.”

Syrian Military Discovered Terrorist Prison At Former Ice Cream Factory – “TASS reports (source): The Syrian military have discovered a prison and a court, where terrorists sentenced locals to death for even the smallest of infringements in the town of Al Qasimiyah in Aleppo province… The prison was located in a former ice cream factory… ‘This was their prison. There are several cells — both big and small. Even women and children were imprisoned here, a total of 500 people,’ a Syrian serviceman named Hadjar told Russian journalists… The place is littered with prisoners’ belongings and jumpsuits of those sentenced to public executions…’Here are sewage pits, [the terrorists] dumped those whom they considered particularly dangerous or guilty there,’ the serviceman said… According to the locals, the militants would punish even the smallest infringement: curfew violation, failure to pay debt, a woman appearing without headscarf in public and even for expression of disrespect to the terrorists. The so-called sharia morality police watched over this.”

Escalation Or De-Escalation? Prospects Of Russian-Turkish Idlib Agreement (w/Video 4min) – Very good concise analysis of the current state of the Cease Fire in Idlib and possible future developments

Two New Disappointments for the Coup Planners in Venezuela – “There are two political lines developing simultaneously. On the one hand, a scenario is under construction to achieve a broad agreement for the next legislative election. The Government and an increasingly wide range of opposition parties and leaders are working on this road map… Central steps have already been taken in that direction, such as the installation on March 9 of the Electoral Nominations Committee to elect the new electoral authorities, with the participation of deputies from both Chavism and the opposition: the president will be Angel Medina, from the Justice First party, and the vice-president Julio Chavez, from the PSUV… On the other hand, the time of the overthrow attempt is underway, with Guaido as the national front and with the United States as its leader and funder. This strategy has not yielded favorable political results either in terms of weakening Maduro or in terms of establishing its social legitimacy since the economic blockade does not have the majority approval of society… So two lines are advancing simultaneously and the second one, the coup plan, needs to stop the accumulation of forces of the first one, the electoral one. In order to do so, it needs to carry out initiatives that achieve an impact, which leads to the hypotheses related to actions of force, like what occurred with the burning of CNE warehouses or the attacks on barracks last December near the border with Brazil.”

COVID-19: Further Evidence that the Virus Originated in the US – by Larry Romanoff – – “Not only did the virus not originate at the seafood market, it did not originate in Wuhan at all, and it has now been proven that it did not originate in China but was brought to China from another country. Part of the proof of this assertion is that the genome varieties of the virus in Iran and Italy have been sequenced and declared to have no part of the variety that infected China and must, by definition, have originated elsewhere… It would seem the only possibility for origination is the US because only that country has the “tree trunk” of all the varieties. And it may therefore be true that the original source of the COVID-19 virus was the US military bio-warfare lab at Fort Detrick. This would not be a surprise, given that the CDC completely shut down Fort Detrick, but also because, as I related in an earlier article, between 2005 and 2012 the US had experienced 1,059 events where pathogens had been either stolen or escaped from American bio-labs during the prior ten years – an average of one every three days.” (emphasis added)

COVID-19 and Total Social Control: ‘This is No Futuristic Scenario’ – by F. William Engdahl – – “Whatever has occurred inside China at this point it is almost impossible to say owing to conflicting reactions of the Beijing authorities and several changes in ways of counting COVID-19 cases. The question now is how the relevant authorities in the West will use this crisis. Here it is useful to go back to a highly relevant report published a decade ago by the Rockefeller Foundation, one of the world’s leading backers of eugenics, and creators of GMO among other things… The report in question has the bland title, “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.” It was published in May 2010 in cooperation with the Global Business Network of futurologist Peter Schwartz. The report contains various futurist scenarios developed by Schwartz and company… One scenario carries the intriguing title, “LOCK STEP: A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback.” Here it gets interesting as in what some term predictive programming.”

Turkey Should Return S-400 If It Wants Patriot Batteries: Pentagon – “On March 10th, US Department of Defense spokesperson Jonathan Hoffman said that the US would deliver Patriot air defense systems to Turkey, if it returned the S-400 missile defense system to Russia… Two Turkish officials told Reuters News Agency that Turkey was evaluating the US offer but added that Ankara had not changed its plans for the Russian S-400 systems… The S-400 is planned to be activated in April 2020… Speaking to reporters on his return flight from Brussels on March 10th, Erdogan said Ankara had told Washington to deploy Patriot systems to Turkey and that it was ready to buy the systems from the US, as well.”

THE STOCK MARKET GOT DESTROYED. THE WORST IS YET TO COME (25 min) – by Greg Mannarino – I recommend everyone watch this very important video from Mannarino.

From the Never-Let-A-Good-Crisis-Go-To Waste Desk: Executive Order on Modernizing Influenza Vaccines in the United States to Promote National Security and Public Health – “(b) Vaccination is the most effective defense against influenza (Note: kinda seems like an opinion). Despite recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that nearly every American should receive the influenza vaccine annually, however, seasonal influenza vaccination levels in the United States have currently reached only about 45 percent of CDC goals (Note: Moar innoculations!)… (c) All influenza vaccines presently in use have been developed for circulating or anticipated influenza viruses. These vaccines must be reformulated for each influenza season as well as in the event of a pandemic. Additional research is needed to develop influenza vaccines that provide more effective and longer-lasting protection against many or all influenza viruses (Note: Can we say “DNA vaccines?”)… Sec. 2. Policy. It is the policy of the United States to modernize the domestic influenza vaccine enterprise to be highly responsive, flexible, scalable, and more effective at preventing the spread of influenza viruses. This is a public health and national security priority, as influenza has the potential to significantly harm the United States and our interests, including through large-scale illness and death, disruption to military operations, and damage to the economy. This order directs actions to reduce the United States’ reliance on egg-based influenza vaccine production; to expand domestic capacity of alternative methods that allow more agile and rapid responses to emerging influenza viruses; to advance the development of new, broadly protective vaccine candidates that provide more effective and longer lasting immunities; and to support the promotion of increased influenza vaccine immunization across recommended populations… Sec. 3. National Influenza Vaccine Task Force. (a) There is hereby established a National Influenza Vaccine Task Force (Task Force). The Task Force shall identify actions to achieve the objectives identified in section 2 of this order and monitor and report on the implementation and results of those actions. The Task Force shall be co-chaired by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, or their designees.” (emphasis added)

This Is a Test: How Will the Constitution Fare During a Nationwide Lockdown? – by John W. Whitehead – – “This coronavirus epidemic, which has brought China’s Orwellian surveillance out of the shadows and caused Italy to declare a nationwide lockdown, threatens to bring the American Police State out into the open on a scale we’ve not seen before… If and when a nationwide lockdown finally hits—if and when we are forced to shelter in place— if and when militarized police are patrolling the streets— if and when security checkpoints have been established— if and when the media’s ability to broadcast the news has been curtailed by government censors—if and when public systems of communication (phone lines, internet, text messaging, etc.) have been restricted—if and when those FEMA camps the government has been surreptitiously building finally get used as quarantine detention centers for American citizens—if and when military “snatch and grab” teams are deployed on local, state, and federal levels as part of the activated Continuity of Government plans to isolate anyone suspected of being infected with COVID-19—and if and when martial law is enacted with little real outcry or resistance from the public—then we will truly understand the extent to which the government has fully succeeded in recalibrating our general distaste for anything that smacks too overtly of tyranny… This is how it begins.”

COVID-19 Coronavirus “Fake” Pandemic: Timeline and Analysis – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky – – “The complexity of this crisis and its impacts have to be addressed and carefully analysed… What we are dealing with is “economic warfare” supported by media disinformation, coupled with the deliberate intent by the Trump administration to undermine China’s economy. The ongoing economic dislocations are not limited to China… There are important public health concerns which must be addressed. But what motivated the Director-General of the WHO to act in this way? Who was behind this historic January 30th decision of the WHO’s Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus… Our subsequent analysis (in the timeline below) reveals that powerful corporate interests linked to Big Pharma, Wall Street and agencies of the US government were instrumental in the WHO’s far-reaching decision… What is at stake is the alliance of “Big Pharma” and “Big Money”, with the endorsement of the Trump Administration. The decision to launch a fake pandemic under the helm of the WHO on January 30, was taken a week earlier at the Davos World Economic Forum (WEF). The media operation was there to spread outright panic.” Comment: Fantastic and important article from Global Research and Prof. Chossudovsky

(Santa Cruz) County Supervisors Declare Emergency Due To Coronavirus – Also on Tuesday, the University of California, Santa Cruz called off in-person classes – – “The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors unanimously declared Tuesday a local emergency as the county braces for potential impact from the new coronavirus. Last week county Health Officer Gail Newel issued a Local Health Emergency, citing a need to prepare for a potential spread, should the outbreak worsen… Two Santa Cruz County residents have tested positive for coronavirus, and both patients are recovering in isolation, the county has said. The first patient was aboard the Princess Grand Princess cruise ship and the second is thought to have contracted the virus on a trip to Seattle… The county said it expects more cases to be confirmed as testing becomes more widely available in the coming days… Don’t miss updates about precautions in Santa Cruz as they are announced.” – “Ain’t it funny how you feel, when you know that it’s for real.” -Neil Young, Sugar Mountain – Comment: I certainly don’t concur with the approaches and attitudes expressed in this lamestream propaganda. But we need to stay aware of what is being pushed here, and where this “horrible pandemic” is being taken. Be prepared to do whatever you need to to preserve your sovereignty and personal initiatives.

18-Year-Old Blind Pianist Is So Talented That Scientists Are Studying His Brain To Learn Why -This blind piano prodigy has been entertaining audiences across the world since he was 11 – by Elias Marat – – “What Dr. Limb found out was shocking: Whitaker’s brain had apparently repurposed the visual cortex in order to develop other neurological pathways. When Whitaker listens to his favorite bands, his visual cortex is activated.”

Dutch Authorities’ Attempted To Pressure Hague District Court Before Start Of MH17 Trial – “I recognise this hallmark style, that of planted news citing some mythical “irrefutable” evidence, with witnesses’ details classified and links to sources that cannot be opened. At the same time, important matters of direct relevance to the tragedy – such as Ukraine’s failure to close its airspace to civilian aircraft due to the internal armed conflict in the summer 2014 – which the Dutch parliamentarians seemed interested in, have apparently slipped from public discourse. The huge package of information about the crash provided by Russia continues to be ignored. The investigators are not interested in why all the prosecutors involved in the MH17 inquiry were fired just before the start of the trial in Ukraine… Yet, the media campaign is gaining unprecedented momentum, with a clear accusatory bias towards Russia and – something absolutely unacceptable – against its citizens. This has been unleashed in the last days before the trial in order to compensate for the gaps in the evidence, to hide the juggling of facts to fit the pre-selected version. Another reason is probably to inspire the idea that the probe was impeccable and predetermine the verdict in advance and prevent any deviation from the line drawn up six years ago… I just have one question. Is it even acceptable practice to launch such an information campaign before a court trial? Have you seen a precedent for this anywhere?” -Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, March 6

Trial Of Alleged “Vault 7” CIA Leaker Ends In Hung Jury – “On Monday, a federal jury in Manhattan could not agree on whether to convict 31-year-old Joshua Schulte on eight counts, including illegal gathering and transmission of national defense information, according to the New York Times. Schulte was convicted on two other counts; contempt of court and making false statements to the FBI… The trial of a former CIA computer engineer accused of the largest leak of classified information in the spy agency’s history has ended with a hung jury.” – Comment: hopefully this outcome will have an impact on the current Julian Assange extradition Kangaroo Court going on near Belmarsh Prison outside London.

Even The Best-Case Scenario Is Pretty Grim – by John Rubino – – “Let’s say President Trump is right about the coronavirus “miraculously” fading away as temperatures rise in the Summer. Will things then go back to the old normal of globalization, free trade and finance-driven “growth”?.. Almost certainly not, because the psychological damage has already been done. Over the past couple of weeks the modern globalized economy with its multi-nation supply chains and just-in-time inventory systems has been forced to recognize that such a system only works in a nearly-perfect environment… Which means the best case scenario is the long-awaited Chinese financial crisis. And with the rest of the world just as over-leveraged as China, the implications of the second biggest economy shifting into reverse and possibly descending into chaos are hard to predict in detail but easy to envision generally: turmoil in the currency, fixed income and stock markets which force the governments to push interest rates into negative territory and run deficits that dwarf those of the Great Recession... If any major fiat currency is still functioning at the end of this process, that will be the real miracle.”

Plunge Protection Team Holds “Market Conditions” Call After Monday’s Market Crash – by Tyler Durden – – “The last time Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had a phone call with the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, better known as the Plunge Protection Team, was on Dec 24, 2018, or the day which has since become better known as the Christmas Eve massacre and which just happened to be the low of the Q4 2018 mini bear markets. It spawned a tremendous rally which culminated in a full year return for 2019 of nearly 30% with zero earnings growth… We bring this up because moments ago, moments ago we learned that in the past day, there was another phone call with the participants of the plunge protection team, which included Mnuchin, Fed Chairman Powell, New York Fed President Williams, as well as the heads of SEC, CFTC, OCC and FDIC, and during which “market conditions and resilience”, “economic disruptions” and “virus impact” were all discussed: The regulators “shared updates on the resilience of the markets and the economic impact,” of the virus, the Treasury Department said in a statement according to Bloomberg, and while the details of the call or its conclusion have not yet been leaked, one can imagine what the topic was on the day the market suffered its biggest crash since the financial crisis.” – Comment: I’d guess you could say these conversations were a prelude to the nearly 1200-point gains the Dow made on Tuesday…

“Deeper Than Corona” – The Real Causes Of The Oncoming Economic Collapse – by Matthew Ehret – “The fact of the oncoming collapse itself should not be a surprise- especially when one is reminded of the $1.5 quadrillion of derivatives which has taken over a world economy which generates a mere $80 trillion/year in measurable goods and trade. These nebulous bets on insurance on bets on collateralized debts known as derivatives didn’t even exist a few decades ago, and the fact is that no matter what the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank have attempted to do to stop a new rupture of this overextended casino bubble of an economy in recent months, nothing has worked. Zero to negative percent interest rates haven’t worked, opening overnight repo loans of $100 billion/night to failing banks hasn’t worked- nor has the return of quantitative easing which restarted on October 17 in earnest. No matter what these financial wizards try to do, things just keep getting worse... The last week has seen The Dow make several 1000-point-plus swings which were more than a little startling for many investors, veering dangerously close to a precipice which has 1929 written all over it. Across the internet, panicky discussion has erupted over whether this foretells another 1987 collapse as Donald Trump warned, or something more akin to Black Tuesday of 1929. Others have pondered whether this is more similar to a 1923 Weimar hyperinflation where Germans became millionaires overnight (not much to celebrate when bread costs billions).”

Lebanon Announces Default On $1.2BN Debt Payment In Historical First – by Tyler Durden – – “Local banks, which own some of the Eurobonds set to mature on March 9, have long argued against a default. But clients also fear the continued rapid depletion of their savings. Diab, appearing to respond not only to the people in the streets but to criticisms from the West centered on the Mediterranean nation’s decades of state corruption, pledged to continue negotiations to restructure the country’s debt ‘with all creditors… in a manner consistent with the national interest.’.. ‘How can we pay creditors abroad when the Lebanese cannot get their money from their bank accounts?’ Diab questioned, referencing controversial emergency measures banks have enacted since the start of the year, which in most places has limited account holders to withdrawing a mere $200 total a week. The Lebanese had ‘lived a dream that was a delusion as though things were just fine, while Lebanon was drowning in more debt,’ he said further.”

Tucker Carlson: Extortion from China is the real threat (10 min) – Note: I personally don’t agree with some of what Tucker puts forward here as “facts.” However, I think it’s great that someone in “The Mainstream” is competent and willing to do this kind of reporting.

Russia Appears Unprepared For Market Chaos (Again) – “A significant part of the liberal economic bloc supports the devaluation of the ruble, as it believes that it will allow to preserve the budget amid the falling energy export revenue. The same liberal bloc has little interest in solving the actual problems of the population: the reduction of purchasing power, the climbing prices in the domestic market. This can be easily seen in the rising fuel prices, as well as the subsequent increase in prices for all sectors of the national economy. The current situation will also lead to an increase in inflation, which the Russian Central Bank declaratively fights against. Thus, the regulator is forced to undermine its own policy from the previous period… In many respects this situation coincides with the political changes in the country and the on-going constitutional amendments. Despite the fact that some of them were partially blocked (for example, the inability to own foreign property for officials and members of parliament), they provoke a hysteria of the liberal portion of the political elites. The economic decline will undermine Putin’s approval rating. As a result, the liberal elite is attempting to exploit the current situation to achieve its political interest and fight against the so-called ‘patriotic part’ of the Russian elites.

Putin Helps Erdogan Climb Down from the Tree with a Ceasefire Agreement – by Elijah J. Magnier – – “A well-informed source said that ‘Erdogan wanted a ceasefire in Idlib but could not announce it himself because it would have cost him dearly domestically. He lost the war when he failed to recover Saraqeb and recover the entire 70-kilometre-long highway linking Aleppo to Damascus, known as the M5. He wanted Putin to bring him down from the tree. The Russian President understood and saved his business partner from humiliation.’.. A strong Putin offered his hand to the weakened Erdogan. His attempts to play on the Levant territory marked an incursion into the Kremlin’s arena. The Russian President is aware that the relationship with his Turkish partner must be handled very cautiously and that Erdogan’s promises cannot be taken at face value. But Turkey is also aware that Russia will hit harder the next time the Astana agreement and its annexes are violated, and that Putin’s allies in Syria will be more vigilant in any future confrontation against the Turkish army in Syria. One thing is sure: the jihadists have lost a father. Erdogan – who took upon him the spearhead role in overthrowing the Syrian state in 2011 – can no longer offer his protection but is himself looking to come out of his predicament with as few bruises as possible. The time has come for Turkey to leave Idlib.”

Seek and destroy: US Navy’s Orca robot (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle) – by Dave Makichuk – – “Meet the Orca, a 50 ton undersea drone armed with high-tech sensors capable of several attack options, including torpedoes, able to wage a stealth-like war under the ocean surface without a single human being in tow… According to a special report from Kris Osborn at National Interest, earlier this year, Boeing was awarded a US$43 million deal to build four Orcas for the US Navy… The XL-UUV (Extra Large Unmanned Undersea Vehicle) Orca is based upon Echo Voyager and Echo Ranger undersea drones, said Capt. Pete Small, Program Manager for Unmanned Systems, Naval Sea Systems Command… The latter is an 84-foot long, massive underwater drone able to reach depths of 11,000 feet and hit ranges up to 6,500 nautical miles, the report said… Extra Large UUVs, such as Boeing’s Orca, are certainly large enough to accommodate weapons payloads, and it seems such an option is entirely feasible, depending upon the pace of undersea connectivity and fire control, the report said… It goes without saying that use of any kind of lethal force would, according to Pentagon doctrine, require a human functioning in a role of command and control.”

Tech Firms Seek to Head Off Bans on Facial Recognition – Microsoft, Amazon show support for some legislative measures – by Ryan Tracy – – “Amid rising calls for regulation, technology companies are pushing for laws that would restrict use of facial-recognition systems—and head off the more severe prohibitions some cities and states are weighing… Microsoft Corp., Inc. and others stand to profit as government agencies and businesses expand use of the technology, which can require large investments in machine-learning and cloud-computing capacity… That opportunity is threatened by campaigns to severely restrict its use… San Francisco and six other cities have passed laws to block government use of facial recognition. Lawmakers in New York, Massachusetts, Hawaii and Michigan are considering some form of ban or strict limitation.”

Why this Draconian Response to COVID-19? – by Jeffrey A Tucker – – “Look, I’m obviously not in a position to comment on the medical aspects of this; I defer to the experts. But neither are medical professionals in a position to comment on the political response to this; mostly they have assiduously declined to do so… Meanwhile, governments are willy-nilly making drastic decisions that profoundly affect the status of human freedom. Their decisions are going to affect our lives in profound ways. And there has thus far been no real debate on this. It’s just been presumed that containment of the spread rather than the care of the sick is the only way forward… What’s more, we have governments all-too-willing to deploy their awesome powers to control human populations in direct response to mass public pressure based on fears that have so far not been justified by any available evidence. For this reason, we have every reason to be concerned… Are we really ready to imprison the world, wreck financial markets, destroy countless jobs, and massively disrupt life as we know it, all to forestall some uncertain fate, even as we do know the right way to deal with the problem from a medical point of view? It’s at least worth debating.”

Coronavirus: Follow the Money (13 min) – by Spiro Skouras

Happy “Spring Ahead” Day !

For the Week of 3/2/20:

Russia Just Told The World, “No.” – by Tyler Durden – – “All of this adds up to Russia holding the whip hand over the global market for oil… The ability to say, “No.”.. And they will have it for years to come as U.S. production implodes… Because they can and do produce the marginal barrel of oil… That is why oil prices plunged as much as 10% into today’s close on the news they would not cut production… There is a cascade lurking beneath this market. There is a lot of bank and pension fund exposure in the U.S. to what is now soon-to-be non-performing fracking debt… Liquidations will begin in earnest later this year… But the market is handicapping this now… I cannot overstate how important and far-reaching this move by Russia is. If they don’t make a deal here they can break OPEC. If they do make a deal it will come with strings that ensure pressure is lifted in other areas of stress for them… The knock-on effects of oil plunging from $70 per barrel to $45 over two months will be felt for months, if not years.”

MbS Widens Purge: Dozens Of Royals And Army Officers Swept Up After Powerful Princes Arrested – by Tyler Durden – – “It appears the resumption of MbS’ purge of any power rivals or centers of influence is back on after a year-long lull following the Oct. 2018 murder and dismemberment of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is officially back on… The WSJ reports: “Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has embarked on a broad security crackdown by rounding up royal rivals, government officials and military officers in an effort to quash potential challenges to his power, Saudi royals and advisers familiar with the matter said Saturday… This includes ‘dozens of Interior Ministry officials, senior army officers and others suspected of supporting a coup attempt…’.”

After State Of Emergency, Cuomo Hints At Mass Quarantines For New York – by Tyler Durden – – “He said, ‘if we need to close schools, we will close schools.’ Already, several prep schools in NYC have shuttered over fears of the virus. Schools are among the various venues which, like cruise ships, concentrate a large number of people in a small space and in light of the unprecedented contagion of the coronavirus, any possibility of social-spreading has to be minimized… Cuomo said there’s “no reason” at the moment to shutdown mass transportation in the city, however that clearly will change when the number of cases spike, and the fact that Cuomo is contemplating it means that this will likely be the next escalation in the fight against the pandemic. We noted on Saturday, Amtrak shuttered several non-stop lines from Washington, DC, to NYC on declining demand for travel due to the virus outbreak… Separately, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), told NBC News on Sunday that if the virus continues to spread, ‘Americans should reconsider attendance at large gatherings.’ All suggestive that mass quarantines, currently seen in China, Italy, and other hard-hit countries, could be coming to the US.”

The Full Impact Of Raging Covid-19 Has Yet To Show Its Face – by Bruce Wilds – – “A big part of getting real information about how fast this virus is spreading comes from the fact we simply don’t know. Slow-moving incompetent governments with strong agendas generate and control both the data and the narrative. Whether the goal of a government is to limit panic, deflect criticism from its failings, or simply generate the impression they have control of the situation we pay the price. The long latency period before someone shows symptoms makes it is quite possible for a person to be carrying the virus but show no signs whatever when they arrive at the airport and pass through screening… While economies around the world are being shaken by the coronavirus markets are also coming up against the same lack of real information when it comes to assessing the real damage being done or how long it will last. As the title of this piece indicates the impact of this raging virus has yet to show its face. It may be years before we know the extent of the carnage this pandemic inflicts upon financial markets as well as the streets where people live. Covid-19 may be the catalyst for a global economic reset long overdue or simply a huge bump in the road.”

Empires of the Steppes Fuel Erdogan Khan’s Dreams – by Pepe Escobar – – “Russian diplomatic sources confirm that no one in Moscow believes any word, promise or cajoling emanating from Erdogan anymore. So it’s useless to ask him to respect the Sochi agreement. Imagine a Sun Tzu-style meeting with the Russian side displaying the very picture of self-restraint while scrutinizing Erdogan on how much he is willing to suffer before desisting from his Idlib adventure… Those non-nonsense proto-Mongols: What ghosts from the past evolve in Erdogan’s unconscious? Let history be our guide – and let’s go for a ride among the empires of the steppes… What history has shown is an east-west Eurasian axis across the steppes, from Central Asia to Anatolia, through which nomad tribes, Turk and Turkmen, then the Ottoman Turks, migrated and progressed, as conquerors, between the 7th and the 17th centuries: a whole millennium building an array of sultanates, emirates and empires. No wonder the Turkish president pictures himself as Erdogan Khan or Sultan Erdogan… Erdogan Khan has proclaimed, “Idlib is mine.” Syria and Russia are responding, “No, it’s not.” Those were the days, when turcophone empires of the steppes could just advance and capture their prey.” – Comment: Fantastic historical perspective from the inimitable Escobar

War with Russia Would be Hell on Earth – Look at the Terrifying Power of These Russian ‘Flame-Thrower’ Missiles (Video – 45sec) –

Police Quarantine California Neighborhood After Coronavirus Death – by Tyler Durden – – “Police in the Sacramento suburb of Rocklin, California ordered residents on one residential street to stay inside their homes as officers in protective gear patrolled the area as a sheriff’s helicopter circled overhead, according to WIBW… The reason? A man who became California’s first coronavirus victim lived on the block… Residents were kept in the dark until after they were allowed to leave their homes, according to the report…’The Placer County Health Department issued a brief statement shortly after the police presence, stating: “Law enforcement partners are currently responding to enforce a health officer’s order. We cannot share any additional information to protect patient confidentiality.’..The orders were given under sections of California Health and Safety Code that allows Placer Health to “enforce regulations requiring strict isolation, or quarantine if the action is necessary for the protection of the public health.” –WIBW… The quarantine order came one day after Placer County Public Health announced the death of the 71-year-old resident.” – Comment: As per the video embedded in this article, Placer County Public Health still refuses to identify the quarantined peoples’ neighbor who died.

Munich Security Conference Presents Heavily Biased Research Into Advent Of Right-Wing Extremism – “The Munich Security Conference, apart from conventional sources of presumed danger for the west, such as Russia and China, also looks at the advent of right-wing extremism… The report from the conference, specifically mentions that great resources have been spent on “the war on terror” fighting jihadism after 9/11, but right-wing extremism was allowed to spread almost without issue… At the same time, it (the MSC Report) heavily misrepresents the number of jihadist extremism events and fatalities. Even a simple glance of various open sources of information would reveal that there are easily over 100 cases of Islamic extremism between September 1st, 2001 and December 31st, 2018. And even if the numbers of events are realistic in the presented graphs, it is also showing that the fatalities are much higher, in regard to the number of events when right-wing and jihadist extremism are compared… This is a very apparent example of attempting to fit facts to the desired narrative and not constructing the narrative based on what has really happened and working from there.” (underlined emphasis added)

Idlib Militants Violate Ceasefire Agreed By Turkey And Russia On March 5: Russian Military – “Over the last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 19 cases of firing in the provinces of: Idlib-3, Latakia-7, Aleppo-9… The Turkish side has registered 1 cases of ceasefire violations in in the provinces of Idlib-1.”

Saudi Arabia Detains King’s Brother, Nephew Over Alleged Coup Attempt – “Saudi Arabia has detained two senior members of the royal family – Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, the younger brother of King Salman, and Mohammed bin Nayef, the king’s nephew – according to reports citing sources with knowledge of the matter… The Wall Street Journal reported the detentions of the two royals on Friday and said they related to an alleged coup attempt. Bloomberg also reported the detentions, saying the pair were accused of treason… Mohammed bin Nayef’s younger brother, Prince Nawaf bin Nayef, had also been detained, according to the New York Times… The sources said royals seeking to change the line of succession view Prince Ahmed, King Salman’s only surviving full brother, as a possible choice who would have the support of family members, the security apparatus and some Western powers.. In late 2018, a video emerged of Prince Ahmed facing protesters outside his London residence and in which he seemed to criticise King Salman and his crown prince for the war in Yemen… ‘Don’t blame the entire family … Those responsible are the king and his crown prince’ he said. ‘In Yemen and elsewhere, our hope is that the war ends today before tomorrow.’ ”

Italy ‘QUARANTINES’ 16 MILLION people in Lombardy & 14 other provinces in attempt to stop coronavirus outbreak – “Italian PM Giuseppe Conte has signed an emergency decree, virtually locking down the Lombardy region and 14 other provinces until April 3, to curb the spread of coronavirus that killed at least 233 across the country so far… While the central government stopped short of enforcing a mandatory quarantine and introducing a complete travel ban, calling it a “reduced mobility” regime, the bill virtually banned citizens from entering or leaving the “red zones” unless for an emergency or ‘essential work reason.’ ”

US ‘BLOCKS’ UN from supporting Russian-Turkish ceasefire in Syria’s Idlib – “Though Nebenzya refrained from naming the culprit, both AFP and TASS reported that it was the US that vetoed the statement, citing diplomatic sources on East River… Having pulled back its small contingent in Syria – there in violation of domestic and international law – to seize and hold oilfields, the US has nevertheless sought to influence the situation on the ground by egging on Erdogan to invade Idlib in force… US envoy to the UN Kelly Craft actually went into Idlib and met with the “White Helmets,” the so-called civil defense actually operating hand in arm with militants affiliated with Al-Qaeda. She later went to Ankara and met with Erdogan on the eve of his trip to Moscow, but apparently to no avail… Washington’s special envoy for Syria James Jeffrey also visited Turkey, promising “ammunition” and supplies for the Turkish army’s incursion into Syrian territory – only for aides to walk that back afterward as nothing more than routine cooperation with a NATO ally.”

Pentagon Sends Troops to California Border amid Fears of Border Rush – by Paul Goldberg – – “Some of the 30,000 migrants waiting in Mexico rushed for the border February 28 when the court declared the MPP program to be illegal. The court then quickly put a stay on its decision to block the MPP (Migrant Protection Protocols) until March 12, pending any Supreme Court intervention… Administration officials are sending the troops to the border out of fear the migrants will try to overwhelm the border defenses on March 12… Officials also said the extra troops could help prevent the migration of people with diseases, such as the Covid-19 disease from China.”

Turkish Military Establishes Another Position In Greater Idlib, Deploys Large Reinforcements (Videos) – “On March 8, the Turkish military established yet another “observation post” in the Greater Idlib region in northwest Syria… According to opposition sources, the new “observation post” was set near the town of Zardana in the northeastern Idlib countryside, 15 km away from the governorate’s city center (Note: Idlib City).”

WHO Is Lying To You? (2hr 10min) This is the Jan. 9th episode of Del Bigtree’s HighWire, from ICAN (Informed Consent Action Network) , including a retrospective of HighWire’s work in 2019 and coverage of last December’s WHO “Vaccine Safety Summit,” where the Globalists pushing the Vaccination Agenda spilled the beans about their plans to keep people under the spell of Vaccine “Safety and Effectiveness.” And good luck with that…

Erdogan Loses the Battle, But the War Is Far from Over – by The Saker – – “From the above we can also deduce the following: 1) Erdogan’s Blitzkrieg has failed. Initially, the Turkish drones inflicted major damage on the Syrian forces, but the latter adapted extremely quickly which resulted in what the Russians jokingly referred to as “dronopad” which can roughly be translated as “dronerain”. 2) The Turks were clearly shocked by the Russian decision to bomb a Turkish battalion. What apparently happened is this: two Syrian Su-22 (old Soviet aircraft) bombed the convoy to force it to stop, then a pair of Russian Su-34 (the most modern Russian all-weather supersonic medium-range fighter-bomber/strike aircraft) dropped heavy ordinance on the convoy and surrounding buildings killing scores of Turkish special forces). Both sides decided to “blame” the Syrians, but they don’t fly Su-34, and everybody knows that. 3) Erdogan understood that he either had to double down or declare victory and leave. He wisely chose the latter, at least as a temporary measure. 4) Neither NATO nor the EU showed any signs of wanting to join Turkey’s war on Syria (because that is what we are really dealing with here), and neither did the US. Since I cannot call that decision “wise” (there is no wisdom of any kind left in western regimes), I will call it simply “prudent” as Russia was not about to allow Turkey to invade Syria. 5) Iran, Hezbollah, and Libya all declared their willingness to fight the Turks for as long as needed and anywhere where needed… In spite of these developments, it is pretty clear that internal Turkish politics will continue to force Erdogan to engage in what is politely called “neo-Ottoman” policies aka phantom pains for a lost empire. The obvious solution for Russia is to further arm the Syrians, especially with modernized versions of the Pantsir SAMs which have proven very effective against drones, MLRS rockets and even mortars.” – Comment: Another super-fine article from The Saker

Map Update: M4 Buffer Zone Agreed By Russia And Turkey In Greater Idlib – “This map provides a general look at the M4 buffer zone agreed by Russia and Turkey in the framework of the March 5 ceasefire deal on Idlib. According to the deal, the buffer zone should be cleared from radicas and joint Russian-Turkish patrols should be launched in the area. The problem is that the town of Jisr al-Shughur and its countryside are controlled by the Turkistan Islamic Party, an al-Qaeda affilated terrorist group. Therefore, al-Qaeda members should disappear from the area somehow, or a military action to implement the deal is needed.”

Physical Gold Will Soon Break Free from the Paper Market in Spectacular Fashion – by Brandon Smith – – “For example, precious metals act as investment competition against equities as well as currencies. Suppressed metals prices push investors into other assets like stocks or the dollar, giving a temporary boost to flailing markets… In my article ‘The Eternal Relationship Between Gold And Global Crisis’, I outlined the long history of gold price spikes following international disaster events. But I also pointed out that metals manipulation by banks is almost always a factor before prices rise. In 1962, when the Cuban Missile Crisis triggered record demand for gold on the London market, central banks utilized price suppression through selling of reserves in a policy called “The Gold Pool”. This was intended to force investment back into the U.S. dollar… If the pandemic situation becomes chaotic enough, we may even see physical metals trade take over completely while paper markets disappear. No one wants to have money tied up in an asset they can’t touch during a crisis event. If you don’t hold it in your hand, you don’t really own it… The timing of this decoupling is hard to predict. During the credit crash of 2008, gold had a dramatic run up until autumn, after which prices dropped dramatically. This was then followed by a steady rally from 2009 through 2011. I believe we are currently at the stage of price suppression which may cause weak hands to sell. I recommend not only holding fast to your metals but also using price drops as an opportunity to buy physical while you can.”

Heavy Clashes Break Out In Southern Idlib Few Minutes Into New Ceasefire – “Despite this escalation, no airstrikes on Greater Idlib have been reported, so far. The Turkish military is also refraining from engaging in the clashes… While the ongoing clashes don’t represent a serious violation of the ceasefire, the situation may escalate further in the upcoming few hours.”

Bernie Sanders Admits He’ll ‘Drop Out’ if Biden Has Most Delegates at Convention – Socialist Sanders appears on MSNBC with defeatist admission – by Savannah Pointer – – “Embattled socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has admitted he will drop if former Vice President Joe Biden has the majority of pledged delegates ahead of the Democratic National Convention. Biden, who has since gained endorsement from Presidential candidate dropouts like Mike Bloomberg and Pete Buttigieg, gained traction during Super Tuesday as CNN touted his “juggernaut” comeback.”

Putin And Erdogan Sign Agreement On Idlib, Ceasefire Begins At 00:01 March 6 – “Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he has negotiated an agreement to resolve the ongoing tensions in Idlib province with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The two countries have agreed following “uneasy, but productive” talks that they should not reduce their efforts in the fight against terrorism… Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that his country will be sending additional forces to Idlib province under a new agreement with Russia, but that the status of Turkey’s Operation Spring Shield will be “changed”. Erdogan added that starting at midnight between 5 and 6 March a ceasefire regime will be established in Idlib for both Turkish and Syrian forces. At the same time, the Turkish president said that the army reserves the right to respond to any actions of the Syrian forces… It includes the following items: 1) The cessation of all hostilities along the existing line of contact from midnight on March 6th; 2) Russia and Turkey create a six-kilometer-long security corridor north and south of the M-4 highway in Syria: 3) Russia and Turkey agreed on March 15th to begin joint patrols along the M-4 highway in Syria.” – Comment: It seems that the war will continue on approximately the same basis for all parties.

Turkish-Backed Militants Attack Saraqib In Last Ditch Effort To Block M5 Highway – “Militants advanced towards Saraqib’s city center as well as the nearby towns of Dadikh and Kafr Battikh. However, the fierce resistance of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and intese Syrian and Russian airstrikes prevented them from making any gains… According to pro-government sources, dozens of militants were killed and injured during the clashes near Saraqib. The city’s vicinity is witnessing partial calm now… The new Turkish-backed attack on Saraqib coincided with a Russian-Turkish presidential summit in Moscow, where the escalation in Greater Idlib was discussed… The attack was clearly an attempt to block the M5 highway, which runs through Saraqib, ahead of a ceasefire expected to be implemented after the Russian-Turkish summit. Turkey is eager to block the strategic highway, linking Damascus and Aleppo.”

Fist Fight In Turkish Parliament Ahead Of Putin-Erdogan Meeting – “The meeting was initially supposed to take place in Ankara, as per Erdogan’s words, but it turned out that it would be in Moscow… Erdogan is accompanied by Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusolglu and Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, among other high-profile government representatives… The two leaders are set to discuss the recent developments in Syria, including cease-fire violations in the Idlib de-escalation zone, “a stronghold of opposition forces” in Syria since 2011… ‘This is a tension that harbors the risk of coming to a faceoff. The previous meetings between the two leaders always played a role that facilitated situations, yet now everyone is trying to gain territory as the meeting draws near and both sides know that their performance on the field will affect the negotiating table,’ said Oytun Orhan, of the Center for Middle Eastern Strategic Studies (ORSAM), in an interview with Daily Sabah.

The Graham-Blumenthal Bill: A New Path for DOJ to Finally Break Encryption – by Joe Mullin – – “Members of Congress are about to introduce a bill that will undermine the law that undergirds free speech on the Internet. If passed, the bill known as the Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies (EARN IT) Act, will fulfill a long-standing dream of U.S. law enforcement. If passed, it could largely mark the end of private, encrypted messaging on the Internet… The Department of Justice and the FBI have long seen encryption as a threat. In 1993, the Clinton administration promoted the installation of a “Clipper Chip” in consumer devices that would allow for easy government eavesdropping using key escrow. When researchers repeatedly demonstrated that this flawed idea would compromise privacy and security for everyone, not just criminals, the idea was scrapped. But U.S. law enforcement agencies spent the next 25 years villainizing the widespread adoption of encryption and highlighting a series of awful criminal acts in their efforts to scare elected officials into requiring backdoors… What “best practices” would that (government “child protection”) commission demand in the name of protecting children? We know that offering backdoors to encryption would be high on the list. Attorney General William Barr has demanded “lawful access” to encrypted messages, over and over again. So have his predecessors. The practical result would be to force companies like Apple and Facebook, which offer encrypted messaging services, to choose between protecting user security and privacy and risking unlimited liability for crimes against children committed using these services. Some have likened this anti-encryption scheme to holding car manufacturers liable for injuries caused by defective designs. But really, it’s more like making Toyota pay when a bank robber makes a getaway in a Prius.”

From the Wonders-Never-Cease Desk: Coronavirus solution: Shanghai government recommends vitamin C for COVID-19 – by Jonathan Landsman – – “The government of Shanghai, China has announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high amounts of intravenous vitamin C. (1) Dosage recommendations vary with severity of illness, from 50 to 200 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day to as much as 200 mg/kg/day… These dosages are approximately 4,000 to 16,000 mg for an adult, administered by IV. This specific method of administration is important, says intravenous therapy expert Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, because vitamin C’s effect is at least ten times more powerful by IV than if taken orally. Dr. Yanagisawa is president of the Tokyo-based Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy. He says, ‘Intravenous vitamin C is a safe, effective, and broad-spectrum antiviral.’ ” (emphasis added)

How The Coronavirus Is Being Used To Control You And Remove Your Rights (57 min) – Ryan Cristian of The Last American Vagabond interviews Spiro Skouras on his reporting on the nature of “COVID-19”:

Turkey in Syria: Down a Blind Alley in an Unwinnable War? – by Tony Cartalucci – – “Fighting in northern Syria has escalated as Syrian forces retake the last remaining bastions of foreign-funded militants and encircle, cut-off, and in some cases catch in the crossfire their Turkish backers… Turkey had been making some promising steps in the right direction since Washington’s disastrous proxy regime-change war in Syria began unraveling – yet it still maintains a problematic position inside Syrian territory, backing what are unequivocally terrorists and obstructing Syria’s sovereign right to recover and restore order within its own borders… Indeed – hostilities in Idlib will undoubtedly drive fleeing militants and their families toward the Syrian-Turkish border and inevitably compound Turkey’s already large refugee problem. Yet this is not Syria’s doing, nor that of Syria’s Russian and Iranian allies. It is the doing of malign US foreign policy that Turkey had initially played a key role in facilitating – and at times still appears to be eagerly abetting… The refugee crisis in Turkey itself was cynically used several times in the past by Ankara and its Western allies at the time for political leverage in demonizing Damascus and to justify more direct Western intervention against Syria.”

Putin-Erdogan meeting: a storm is expected over the “mother of all battles” in Idlib; Ayn al Arab is at stake – by Elijah J Magnier – – “Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan had decided to attack Russia, Iran and Syria when he sent his army to Idlib and bombed Russian and Iranian allies on the Idlib front. The Turkish president is feeling strong and believes he is holding many good cards to play against his Russian counterpart President Vladimir Putin. He trusts he is in a position to bomb Iran’s allies, despite the fact that they hold armed drones, precision missiles and experienced Special Forces that can hit Turkey very hard in the case of war… The conflict Erdogan envisions between Russia, Iran and Syria on one side and Turkey on the other would suit the US and Israel. They would be happy to see Presidents Putin and Erdogan sinking into the Syrian quagmire and Hezbollah losing more men in the Levant. Negotiations, intense battles and attempts to reshuffle the military situation are taking place behind the scenes. President Erdogan is trying to improve his military position on the ground before his meeting with President Putin in Moscow tomorrow Thursday- but to no avail. Stormy negotiations can be expected.” – Comment: Very fine and detailed analysis by Magnier

Russian Commentary on the Putin Erdogan Summit – Putin should not believe Erdogan – – “The expert believes that after the meeting between Putin and Erdogan, ‘the war will continue, one way or another.’.. ‘If you evaluate the behavior of Turkey in Syria and Libya, then the only thing Putin can say to Erdogan: ‘Listen, if you are not a fool, then stop everything that you do here,’ he said… The Turkish side, according to Vladimir Anokhin, should react to this with statements about a possible change in its attitude and position… ‘As a result, in my opinion, they (Turks) will tighten their tail, there will be political statements, but there is no faith for them,’ summed up Vladimir Anokhin.”

Trump Just Gave Israel the Ability to Attack Iran’s Nuclear Sites with F-35s – The U.S. State Department has approved an Israeli request to buy eight KC-46A Pegasus aerial tankers. – by Michael Peck – – “If Israel does decide to bomb Iran, the U.S. government has made it a little easier… The U.S. State Department has approved an Israeli request to buy eight KC-46A Pegasus aerial tankers. Including support equipment, spare parts and training, the deal is valued at $2.4 billion, with the first aircraft arriving in 2023… The sale ‘supports the foreign policy and national security of the United States by allowing Israel to provide a redundant capability to U.S. assets within the region, potentially freeing U.S. assets for use elsewhere during times of war,’ said the State Department’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency. ‘Aerial refueling and strategic airlift are consistently cited as significant shortfalls for our allies. In addition, the sale improves Israel’s national security posture as a key U.S. ally.’ ”

Internal “Investigation” Finds it Was “Proper” to Taser, Tackle Grandma Over Asking for Warrant – by Matt Agorist – – “Barbara Pinkney of Bradenton, in Manatee County, Florida wanted to see the warrant from the cops who had come to her home attempting to arrest a man who she says did not live there. Because she was steadfast in her decision to see the warrant, Pinkney, a 70-year-old grandma who had never been in trouble with police before, was tasered multiple times, thrown to the ground and arrested. Now, after they “investigated themselves” the department has found that tasering the grandmother over asserting her rights was “proper.”..’The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said it found that the deputy’s level of applied force was lawful, proper and in accordance with agency policy,’ the report from the internal investigation released last month reads... This grandma is now facing charges of obstruction and battery on a law enforcement officer, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by WFLA. To make matters that much worse, the incident unfolded at 7:30 a.m. on the day after Christmas — which also happens to be Pinkney’s birthday… ‘We heard a knock at the door. Actually, there wasn’t a knock. I think they kicked the door. Bam! Bam! At the door,’ Pinkney said.”

FEMA Is Preparing For Coronavirus “Emergency Declaration” – by Mac Slavo – – “FEMA officials are preparing for an “infectious disease emergency declaration” by the president that would allow the agency to provide disaster relief funding to state and local governments, as well as federal assistance to support the coronavirus response, according to agency planning documents reviewed by NBC News.… The Trump administration would have to use the 1988 Stafford Act to enable FEMA to provide such disaster assistance. Emergency declarations are most often used in the event of natural disasters but can be used to help manage disease outbreaks. ‘To me, this is another indication that the president and the White House are finally aware of the gravity of the situation,’ said Michael Coen, who was FEMA chief of staff during the Obama administration. ‘They need to consider all tools available to them and have contingencies for action.’ ”

China, 5G, And The Wuhan Coronavirus: The Emperor’s New Virus – “Could there be a link between the Coronavirus and 5G? Researcher and building biologist Paul Doyon has just spent the last 18 months in China. He’s written a brilliant article laying out the evidence. And how you can protect yourself—an EMF based protection strategy. Warning: this is a heavy science based article with nearly 100 references to studies—neither Paul or myself want to be accused of fear-mongering… However, as someone who had become very sick and had his immune system break down and was sick for six months looking for answers before even suspecting that living in close vicinity to several cell phone towers was actually what was causing the problem and making him sick, I feel I cannot in good conscience remain silent, and I strongly suspect that China and the rest of the world are looking under the wrong stone for what is actually the problem here… At the moment, with 10,000 recently installed 5G antennas plastering its city, Wuhan is probably one of the most 5G-electropolluted cities on the planet.”

Urgent Market Update: Currency Oblivion Coming (28 min) – by Mike Maloney of

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky – “The media hype and disinformation campaign regarding the spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus have created a Worldwide atmosphere of fear and uncertainty following the launching of a global public health emergency by the WHO on January 30th… The fear campaign is ongoing. Panic and uncertainty. National governments and the WHO are misleading the public… ‘About 84,000 people in at least 56 countries have been infected, and about 2,900 have died’ says the New York Times. What they fail to mention is that 98% of those cases of infection are in Mainland China. There are less than 5000 confirmed cases outside China. (WHO, February 28, 2020)… While COVID-19 is a matter of Public Health concern, at the moment, there is no real pandemic outside Mainland China. Look at the figures… At the time of writing, the number of “confirmed cases” in the US was 64… A low number and the media is spreading panic… Meanwhile, there are 15 Million Cases of Influenza in the USA.”

Leadership Problems Of Turkish Operation Spring Shield – “The rapid growth in ranks and responsibility is primarily due to the fact that after the failed coup in 2016, many, if not most of the experienced officers in the Turkish army were cleansed. Mostly they were sent to prison… Tens of thousands have been arrested in relation to the failed coup, in all spheres of the country… Nearly 290 coup-linked court cases have been launched, 261 of which ended with 3,239 defendants convicted, according to justice ministry figures… Most recently, in June 2019, a court sentenced 151 people to life in prison, including General Akın Öztürk, former commander of Turkish Air Force, and the most senior officer involved in the coup. 128 people received “aggravated life” sentences, which indicates harsh conditions without parole, for their role in the coup, with another 23 receiving standard life sentences… The failed coup resulted in mass arrests, with at least 40,000 detained. Arrested were also least 10,000 soldiers and, for reasons that remain unclear, 2,745 judges.”

Assad Says Current Disagreements With Turkey Are “Illogical” – “In an interview with the Russia-24 TV, al-Assad sent a friendly message to the Turkish people, questioning the motives behind their country’s military intervention in Syria: ‘I ask the Turkish people, what is your issue with Syria? what is the issue that a Turkish citizen deserves to die for? What is the small or large hostile act that Syria took against Turkey during the war or before the war? completely nonexistent,’ the Syrian President said, according to a report by RT on March 4… Al-Assad went on to say ‘there are intermarriages, there are common families, there is a daily interest relationship between Syria and Turkey, there are groups in Turkey of Syrian Arab origin, and there are groups in Syria of Turkish origin … So it is not logical that there will be a dispute between us and them.’ ”

Turkey Merged Its Observation Posts In Idlb With Terrorist Bases: Russian Military – “He added that Turkish observation posts were merged with terrorist bases and attacks on settlements in the government-held area as well as Hmeimim airbase became regular. So, in Februarty 2020, he said, Syrian government forces had to contribute own efforts to turn the Sochi deal into reality… The spokesperson noted that now, 18 months since the signing of the agreement, internationally-recognized terrorist groups Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, the Turkestan Islamic Party and Horas al-Din were pushed back to the north, the border with Turkey… ‘Amid the total cynicism and the West’s fake concerns over the humanitarian situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone, only the Russian centre for reconciliation of the opposing sides and the legitimate Syrian government deliver to the liberated areas all the needed assistance for local residents daily’, Konashenkov said… ‘Syrians, tormented by terrorists, were not even aware of the existence of numerous pseudo-protectors in Europe and the United States, and of the prodigal humanitarian assistance, which was allegedly delivered over the past years.’ ”

Another Turkish-led Attack On Saraqib Ends With Disaster – “On March 4, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies repelled another Turkish-led attack on Saraqib city in eastern Idlib… The attack was launched in the early morning hours by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the National Front for Liberation (NFL). As usual, the Turkish military supported militants with artillery and rocket strikes… Despite the Turkish support, militants failed to reach Saraqib city. The SAA’s 25th Special Forces Division and Lebanon’s Hezbollah repelled the attack in the outskirt of the city. The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) provided the city’s defenders with a close air support… Turkish combat drones were not able to support the attack. However, the Turkish Air Force (TAF) made a failed attempt to shoot down a Syrian warplane near the city… Initial reports indicate that Turkish-backed militants sustained catastrophic losses in the attack. Some pro-government sources claimed that up to 150 militants were neutralized around Saraqib.”

A Perfect Storm on the Horizon. Turkey’s Hegemonic Ambitions – by Askiah Adam – – “Russia is pushing back the Turkish Army in Idlib. As the Turks broke through the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defence the latter called for air assistance from Russia. The fighters came and victory was the SAA’s. With that all uncertainty is gone. Russia will keep its promise of maintaining the integrity of the Syrian state, even when an “ally” is attempting to force her to break that promise. Relations with difficult Turkey is no reason for Russia to betray a decades-old major ally inWest Asia… After all, to all intents and purposes, Ankara is proving to be an unworthy ally irrespective of the benefits given and promised. Appeased many times — including the intentional downing of a SU-24 Russian fighter in 2015 near the Syria-Turkey border; and the assassination of the Russian envoy to Turkey. But Turkey appeared to straddle both East and West. Trump was defied and the purchase of the Russian S-400 air defence system went through. However, many saw that sale as Putin’s foolishness knowing that President Erdogan was not a man of his word. And, it has been reported that apparently, Ankara is threatening to deploy the S-400 against Syria in the current conflagration. Thus proving the skeptics correct… It would appear that a Russian intervention of the sort that puts paid to any terrorist victory is the only way. But then the armies of other nations will step in to try a push back of the victorious SAA from their ownSyrian territories as if they had no right to them. A total and final victory cannot but come from a determined strike against invading forces. But as Idlib has proven Syria cannot be restored intact without Russian support. The question then is, are the powers, NATO et al, edging towards a World War? One does get the impression that at this time the US and its NATO allies are erring towards thebelief that they can win such a war.”

“What Are The Odds?” – A Timeline Of Facts Linking Covid-19, HIV, & Wuhan’s Secret Bio-Lab – “Having been permanently banned from Twitter for sharing the publicly-available details of the man who ran the show as far a bat-soup virology in Wuhan’s super-secret bio-lab – which is now a common talking point and rapidly shifting from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact – we thought a reminder of how we got here was in order… Scott Burke, CEO of crypto-related firm Groundhog, unleashed what we feel may be the most complete timelines of facts to help understand the controversial links between COVID-19 and HIV, and COVID-19 and Wuhan Institute of Virology… Want to go down a (strictly fact-based) rabbit hole? – Here is the full slightly-edited-for-formatting twitter thread…”

Hillary Clinton Ordered To Give Sworn Deposition After Judge Tosses ‘Preposterous’ Defense – by Tyler Durden – – “Lamberth also said that he is troubled by the fact that both Clinton and the State Department want discovery to end… ‘[T]here is still more to learn. Even though many important questions remain unanswered, the Justice Department inexplicably still takes the position that the court should close discovery and rule on dispositive motions. The Court is especially troubled by this. To argue that the Court now has enough information to determine whether State conducted an adequate search is preposterous, especially when considering State’s deficient representations regarding the existence of additional Clinton emails. Instead, the Court will authorize a new round of discovery -Judge Lamberth – Furthermore, Lamberth found that Clinton’s prior testimony in the case – mostly given through sworn answers, was insufficient… ‘The Court has considered the numerous times in which Secretary Clinton said she could not recall or remember certain details in her prior interrogatory answers. In a deposition, it is more likely that plaintiff’s counsel could use documents and other testimony to attempt to refresh her recollection. And so, to avoid the unsatisfying and inefficient outcome of multiple rounds of fruitless interrogatories and move this almost six-year-old case closer to its conclusion, Judicial Watch will be permitted to clarify and further explore Secretary Clinton’s answers in person and immediately after she gives them. The Court agrees with Judicial Watch – it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton.’ -Judge Lamberth

‘Why Are We Being Charged?’ Surprise Bills From Coronavirus Testing Spark Calls for Government to Cover All Costs – by Jake Johnson – – “Sarah Kliff of the New York Times reported Saturday that Pennsylvania native Frank Wucinski “found a pile of medical bills” totaling $3,918 waiting for him and his three-year-old daughter after they were released from government-mandated quarantine at Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar, California… ‘My question is why are we being charged for these stays, if they were mandatory and we had no choice in the matter?’ asked Wucinski, who was evacuated by the U.S. government last month from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak… ‘I assumed it was all being paid for,’ Wucinski told the Times. ‘We didn’t have a choice. When the bills showed up, it was just a pit in my stomach, like, “How do I pay for this?” ‘ ”

Why A Bear Market Will Lead To A Dollar Collapse – by Alasdair Macleod –“Falling equity markets this week are likely to signal the onset of a bear market, responding to a combination of the coronavirus spreading beyond China and persistent indications of a developing recession… This has provoked a flight into US Treasuries, with the ten-year yield falling to an all-time low of 1.1141%. This will prove to be a mistake, given US price inflation which on independent estimates is running close to ten per cent, exposing US Treasuries as badly overpriced… After this short-term response, much higher US Treasury yields are inevitable. Foreigners, who possess more dollars and dollar investments than the entire US GDP will almost certainly sell, driving bond yields up and the dollar down, leaving the Fed the only real buyer of US Treasuries… This article goes through the sequence of events likely to destroy value in US financial assets and the dollar as well. And what goes for the US goes for all other fiat-currencies and their financial markets.” (underlined emphasis added)

For the Week of 2/24/20:

2A Under Fire In CA: Santa Clara Forms Gun Confiscation Team – by James Fite – – “California continues to proudly lead the charge toward a disarmed citizenry. In the latest attack on the Second Amendment, Santa Clara County is forming what they call a “county gun team” – a unit of lawyers, analysts, and prosecutors authorized to seek out and confiscate firearms from those the state feels shouldn’t have them… Okay, Fine. We’re Coming For Your GunsRemember when Democrats used to try to mollify armed Americans by saying, “No one’s coming for your guns” with every incremental gun control measure they proposed?.. Well, it’s official: They’re coming for the guns – some of them, at least. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. As Liberty Nation’s Graham J. Noble once wrote, ‘Democrats have never come across a gun restriction they didn’t like.’.. The Santa Clara Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve funding for the proposal, which was put forth by board president Cindy Chavez. The team will consist of seven people – three crime analysts, two lawyers, and two prosecutors. They will be tasked with identifying those who have been ordered to surrender their weapons and ensure these dangerous people aren’t still armed. If necessary, they’ll obtain search warrants for local law enforcement to go and take the guns.”

The Last Time This Happened Was Days Before The Great Depression – by Tyler Durden – – “The US equity market is suffering its worst start to a year since 2009… In the space of just six days, we went from record high to a ‘correction’ (over 3,000 Dow points and down over 10.5%)… What is most ominous is the fact that, as NatAlliance Securities reports, ‘This would be only the second time in history that this has happened. The other? 1928.’.. In other words, the only other time the Dow Jones entered a correction this fast from an all time high was months before the start of the Great Depression.”

Syrian Army Shells Turkish Post In Southern Idlib. Casualties Reported – “Early on March 2, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled a Turkish post near the town of Qmenas in the southern Idlib countryside, according to opposition sources… Idlib’s General Media Center said the army’s heavy artillery pounded the post repeatedly. In the shelling, several Turkish service members were injured… Pro-opposition activists claimed that several Turkish military helicopters flew into Idlib to evacuate the injured service members. However, this has not been confirmed, so far.”

Turkey Asks NATO to Join Its War Against Syria and Russia – by Eric Zuesse – – “Going to war against Syria would mean going to war also against Russia, which is in Syria to protect Syria’s sovereignty over its own territory. If the United States accepts that Turkish proposal, then World War III will consequently result… Darius Shahtahmasebi reported for Russia’s RT News on the morning of February 28th: ‘Turkey is calling for NATO’s protection after 33 of its soldiers were killed in an apparent Syrian airstrike in Idlib, allegedly while fighting in terrorist ranks. In the regional chaos that ensues, only one player stands to gain… Speculation over what’s to come next has seen #article 5 trending on Twitter in the hours following the attacks, after Omer Celik, spokesman for Turkey’s ruling AKP party, indicated to reporters in Ankara that he was looking at requesting formal NATO protection against Damascus and, by proxy, the Russian air force.’ “

Syrian Forces Counter-Attack Near Saraqib As Air War Heats Up Over Idlib (Maps, Videos) – – “According to Russian state media, Turkish F-16 fighter jets two times violated Syrian airspace over Idlib on March 1. This version says that Turkish fighter jets were responsible for downing of 2 Syrian Su-24 earlier today. Syrian pilots safely ejected from the warplanes and landed in the government-held area… Later on March 1, reports appeared that a third Syrian warplane was targeted by Turkish forces. However, these reports remain unconfirmed… The recent developments demonstrate that if Turkey continues avoiding employing its own troops in a direct fighting, its forces appear to be not able to deliver a swift and devastating blow to the Syrian Army and achieve the goal declared by its top leadership…”

Unverified Video Shows Turkish Troops Torturing Syrian Captives In Greater Idlib February 29, Syrian activists shared a horrifying video allegedly showing Turkish service members torturing, beating and humiliating Syrian soldiers that had been captured by Turkish-backed militants in Greater Idlib… Several armed men who are supposedly service members of the Turkish military can be seen in the video taking turns beating up three captives, allegedly Syrian Arab Army (SAA) personnel… The brutal beating made some Syrian militants intervene to stop the Turkish service members. Nevertheless, they were pushed back. Towards the end of the video, the loud screams of the captives can be clearly heard.”

European Nightmare As Turkey “Opens The Gates” On Refugees While Covid-19 Ravages Nearby Iran – by Tyler Durden – – Turkey has announced it has opened its until now sealed border with Idlib for at least 72 hours, and will allow unhindered passage of refugees to Europe. So it begins, as Middle East Eye reports: ‘Turkey will open its southwestern border with Syria for 72 hours to allow Syrians fleeing the pro-government forces’ assault free passage to Europe,’ Turkish official sources have told Middle East Eye…The decision came after a security meeting chaired by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara late on Thursday after 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in Syria’s Idlib province…’A senior Turkish official said on Thursday that Syrian refugees headed towards Europe would not be stopped either on land or by sea.’ ”

Idlib Escalation Is Slowly Pushing Turkey Towards Open Conflict With Russia – “The February 27 incident in Syria’s Idlib, in which at least 33 Turkish soldiers were killed, caused a new wave of anti-Syrian and anti-Russian hysteria among Turkish media and top Turkish officials… Mesut Hakki Casin, an adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, even claimed that Turkey had “fought Russia 16 times in the past, we will do it again.” Defense Minister Hulusi Akar also accused Russia of Turkish casualties claiming that strikes on Turkish troops continued even after the message to the Russian side: ‘This attack occurred even though the locations of our troops had been coordinated with Russian officials in the field,” Defense Minister Akar said. “Despite warnings after the first strike, the Syrian regime unfortunately continued its attacks, even targeting ambulances.’ (Note: Akar’s statement here is essentially a “mistruth”… The Russian Defense Ministry emphasized that the killed Turkish soldiers were embedded with terrorists (members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other al-Qaeda groups that Ankara supports) and that Turkish troops had not informed Russia about their deployement in the area. (underlined emphasis added)

From Feb. 28: Putin And Erdogan Talk Over Phone, As NATO Says It Won’t Do Anything To Support Ankara In Idlib – “On February 28th, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a phone call discussing the implementation of agreements in Idlib, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said… ‘Today, a phone call between presidents Putin and Erdogan has been held at the initiative of the Turkish leader. The talks were detailed. They discussed the need to do everything possible to implement the original agreements on the de-escalation zone [in Idlib],’ he said… Putin and Erdogan also allowed the possibility of holding new contacts on Idlib at different levels… ‘A possibility was discussed to shortly hold necessary contacts at this or that level. Literally an hour-and-a-half ago, reports came that the Russian and Turkish negotiators who worked in Ankara yesterday and the day before yesterday, had agreed to continue work today,’ Lavrov informed… Just days earlier, Lavrov said that any truce with the militants in Idlib would mean a capitulation to terrorism and that mustn’t happen.”

Turkey Has Fought Russia 16 Times In The Past, Will Do It Again If Need Be: Erdogan Foreign Affairs Advisor – “On February 28th, Mesut Hakki Casin, an adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey had ‘fought Russia 16 times in the past, we will do it again.’.. Mesut Hakki Casin, a professor at Istanbul’s Yeditepe University and a member of the foreign affairs board that advises Erdogan, said 25 million Muslims live in Russia… He said Russia will be “dismembered from within,” according to a tweet posted by Ahval.”

Coronageddon: Can a “Minsky Moment” be Avoided? – by Mike Whitney – – “There’s a chance that the coronavirus will be contained in the United States and that fewer people will be infected than in China or Iran. But there’s also a possibility that the highly-contagious virus will spread and that there will be sporadic outbreaks across the country. If this latter scenario takes place, then the ructions in the stock market will intensify making it impossible to form a bottom or spark a relief rally. If stocks can’t find a bottom, then pressure will build on the weak players, who purchased securities with borrowed cash, to sell their good assets along with the bad in order to repay their debts. These massive selloffs can quickly turn into firesales where it’s nearly impossible to find a buyer regardless of price. This is what the financial media calls “panic selling”, a vicious, self-reinforcing downward spiral in which stock prices collapse in a frantic, disorderly selloff. The phenomenon has also been described by Pimco’s Paul McCulley as a “Minsky Moment”.”

NYSE Announces Disaster-Recovery Test Due To Virus Fears – by Tyler Durden – – “In a somewhat shocking sounding move, given administration officials’ ongoing effort to calm the public fears over the spread of Covid-19, The New York Stock Exchange has announced it will commence disaster-recovery testing in its Cermak Data Center on March 7 amid coronavirus concern, Fox Business reports in a tweet, citing the exchange: ‘During this test, NYSE will facilitate electronic Core Open and Closing Auctions as if the 11 Wall Street trading floor were unavailable,’ Fox says… To reiterate, the disaster recovery plan is to check the process that would occur if Covid-19 ‘public distancing’ proposals come into effect and effectively shut the trading floor?!.. The test is reported to occur March 7 between 8:30 am-11 am.”

US Counterintelligence: Protectionism And Censorship Need Ramping Up In Order To Counter China and Russia – “The National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) unveiled the National Counterintelligence Strategy of the United States of America 2020-2022 on February 10th: ‘Today’s strategy represents a paradigm shift in addressing foreign intelligence threats as a nation. While past counterintelligence strategies categorized the threat by our top foreign nation-state adversaries, this one focuses on five key areas where foreign intelligence entities are hitting us hardestand where we need to devote greater attention – critical infrastructure, key U.S. supply chains, the U.S. economy, American democratic institutions, and cyber and technical operations,’ said NCSC Director William Evanina… ‘With the private sector and democratic institutions increasingly under attack, this is no longer a problem the U.S. Government can address alone. It requires a whole-of -society response involving the private sector, an informed American public, as well as our allies,’ Director Evanina added… According to the strategy, which was s
