Video Removed & BBC inferred I lied. My two cents – by Dana Ashlie (24 min) – https://youtu.be/dvqBwPgrX_s – ” Dana Ashlie talks about the unexplained removal of her recent video discussing the effects of 60ghz 5G radiation on the orbital spin of electrons of oxygen and its possible interference in the uptake of oxygen by hemoglobin in blood cells, provides more confirmation of this possible (untested) possibility, and exposes the extreme rush toward implementation of 5G in the United States through the Orwellian “Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020” signed on March 24th by Trump, which calls for: ‘Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the President shall develop and submit to the appropriate committees of Congress an implementation plan for the Strategy (referred to in this Act as the Implementation Plan), which shall include, at a minimum, the following: 9) A plan for engagement with private sector communications infrastructure and systems equipment developers and critical infrastructure owners and operators who have a critical dependency on communications infrastructure to share information and findings on 5th and future generations wireless communications systems and infrastructure equipment standards to secure platforms. (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”
From the Break-Out-The-Torches-And-Pitchforks Desk: “It is fair to say things won’t go back to truly normal until we have a vaccine that we’ve gotten out to basically the entire world.” ~ Bill Gates – (23 sec. video) – https://twitter.com/LegendaryEnergy/status/1246907612152676354

Must, Must, MUST Read: Waves Of Mutilation: Medical Tyranny And The Cashless Society – by Brandon Smith – http://www.alt-market.com/index.php/articles/4175-waves-of-mutilation-medical-tyranny-and-the-cashless-society – “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 – https://bolenreport.com/martial-law-and-the-us-constitution/ – “…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 – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/04/police-app-encourages-people-to-report-neighbors-who-violate-stay-at-home-orders.html – “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.’ ”

It is necessary to contain the spread of coronavirus infection. That’s what experts say,’ he said during the council’s meeting, which was conducted in a video conference mode… The president added that the authorities would listen carefully to expert opinion.”
From the We-Do-What-We’re-Told Desk: Social distancing works, but resistance prompts worries of growing crisis – by Nathaniel Weixel – https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/491097-social-distancing-works-but-resistance-prompts-worries-of-growing – “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.’ ”
Introductory video from Jon Rappoport and Solari.com: Coronavirus, Epidemics, and Vaccine Terrorism – https://home.solari.com/coronavirus-epidemics-vaccine-mandates-with-jon-rappoport/ – with a major three-part audio series on the “The Creation of a False Epidemic with Jon Rappoport” hosted on Solari at: https://home.solari.com/the-creation-of-a-false-epidemic-with-jon-rappoport/ – I strongly suggest listening to these to deepen your understanding of what’s happening here, and what the people of Earth are faced with.
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 – https://www.anti-empire.com/nobody-knows-what-the-supposed-covid-19-test-is-even-testing-for/ – “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)
From the Believe-In-Government-God Desk: Trump: Obeying COVID-19 Guidelines is a ‘Matter of Life and Death’ – by Alice Green – http://punchingbagpost.com/2020/04/02/trump-obeying-covid-19-guidelines-is-a-matter-of-life-and-death/ – ” ‘The surge is coming, and it’s coming pretty strong,’ said President Trump Tuesday during a press conference at the White House. ‘As a nation, we’re going to have a really rough two weeks. 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 – https://www.timesofisrael.com/rioters-police-clash-in-jaffa-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 – https://newspushed.com/small-group-of-coronavirus-patients-exhibit-neurological-symptoms/ – “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 – https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/two-plans-re-open-country-include-covid-19-tracking-cell-phones-and-mass-vaccinat01 – “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) – https://southfront.org/syria-and-turkey-ramp-up-preparations-for-new-military-confrontation/ – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/health/there-are-least-8-strains-coronavirus-heres-what-we-know – “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 NextStrain.org… (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 NextStrain.org that shows how the virus is migrating and splitting into similar but new subtypes.’ –USA Today“
Santa Cruz County Extends Coronavirus Shelter-In-Place Order – https://patch.com/california/santacruz/santa-cruz-county-extends-shelter-place-order – Santa Cruz County has extended its shelter-in-place order through May 3, bringing the county in line with many others in the immediate Bay Area that issued extensions Tuesday… Santa Cruz County first issued its shelter-in-place order March 16, with plans to keep it in place through April 7… Early evidence suggests that the last order has slowed transmission rates (Question: According to what evidence?) of the new coronavirus, the order said. County Health Officer Gail Newel will re-evaluate the order as more data is available… ‘I expect the weeks ahead will be challenging, and it is imperative that we not let down our guard as we work together to reduce the impacts from this disease,’ Newel said in a news release Tuesday night announcing the change.”
Left-wing Billionaire Bill Gates Thinks He Knows Better Than Trump: Calls For Nationwide Shutdown [Opinion] – by David Lindfield – https://newspushed.com/left-wing-billionaire-bill-gates-thinks-he-knows-better-than-trump-calls-for-nationwide-shutdown-opinion/ – ” ‘This is a recipe for disaster. Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. 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 – https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/top-news/all-roads-lead-dark-winter/ – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/rabobank-dynamic-will-trigger-next-round-global-turmoil-ahead – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/fed-launches-repo-facility-provide-dollars-foreign-central-bank – “…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 – https://gilad.online/writings/2020/3/30/being-in-the-age-of-corona – “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.

Ford, GE Promise To Build 15,000 Ventilators Over Next 100 Days; Washington DC Mayor Issues ‘Stay At Home’ Order: Live Updates – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/spains-covid-19-case-total-passes-chinas-south-korea-reports-rash-new-cases-live – Comment: Detailed reporting on many things happening now… Maryland Gov. 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 – https://www.technocracy.news/the-common-roots-of-climate-change-and-covid-19-hysteria/ – “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 – https://southfront.org/turkey-deploys-equipment-in-syrias-idlib-to-repair-m4-highway/ – “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 – https://newspushed.com/bill-de-blasio-threatens-to-close-churches-that-resist-shutdown-order/ – ” ‘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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/rosneft-abruptly-exits-venezuela-sells-assets-russian-state-amid-us-squeeze-maduro – “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 – https://newspushed.com/media-steers-clear-of-questioning-biden-about-sexual-allegations-against-him/ – “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 – https://newspushed.com/tucker-carlson-defends-his-bold-prediction-biden-will-not-be-the-2020-democratic-nominee/ – “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 – https://themindunleashed.com/2020/03/pentagon-teams-underground-mountain-bunkers-preparation-pandemic.html – “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 – https://finance.yahoo.com/news/feds-cure-risks-being-worse-110052347.html – “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.”

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”

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.

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.”

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.

As 911 Gets Calls for Coughing Neighbors, Hotline Allows People to Snitch to Govt During Outbreak – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/03/as-911-gets-calls-for-coughing-neighbors-hotline-allows-people-to-snitch-to-govt-during-outbreak.html – “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 – https://anonhq.com/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 – https://www.wakingtimes.com/2020/03/25/two-hundred-and-thirty-years-of-rights-and-liberties-shredded-why-i-oppose-the-lockdown/ – “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.”

47,000 Stores Shutter Across The US As Virtually All Retailers Stop Paying Rent – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/total-halt-47000-stores-shutter-across-us-virtually-all-retailers-stop-paying-rent – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/global-economy-wont-bounce-back-soon-0 – ” 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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/despite-qeternity-bailout-bill-us-dollar-shortage-intensifies – “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.

A More Effective Response To The Crisis – Monetary Insanity Is Not The Solution To Monetary Excess – by Daniel Lacalle – https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/more-effective-response-crisis-monetary-insanity-not-solution-monetary-excess – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/putin-postpones-controversial-national-referendum-after-covid-19-cases-jump-overnight – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/why-did-hundreds-ceos-resign-just-world-started-going-absolutely-crazy – “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 – https://southfront.org/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.”

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.

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).

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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/health/india-now-hand-stamping-people-who-are-suspected-have-covid-19-infections – “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 Reuters… The 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 – punchingbagpost.com/2020/03/23/italy-reports-another-outbreak-sends-military-to-enforce-lockdown/ – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/fed-unleashes-unlimited-qe-will-buy-corporates-munis-cmbs – “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 – https://www.globalresearch.ca/coronavirus-gates-foundation/5706842 – “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 – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/03/police-in-california-plan-to-use-drones-to-enforce-quarantine-lockdown.html – “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 – https://neonnettle.com/news/10720-democrats-block-crucial-coronavirus-relief-bill-sending-markets-into-freefall – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/line-new-jersey-drive-thru-testing-facility-thousands-cars-long – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/israel-debates-total-suspension-individual-freedom-knesset-intel-hearing – “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 – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/03/despite-pandemic-lawmakers-push-for-even-more-spending-on-fighter-jets.html – “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 – https://www.voanews.com/science-health/coronavirus-outbreak/analysts-russia-using-virus-crisis-sow-discord-west – “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 – https://southfront.org/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.

US government threatens families of Int’l Criminal Court staff if they try Americans for war crimes – https://southfront.org/us-government-threatens-families-of-intl-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 – https://southfront.org/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 – https://newspushed.com/stanford-professor-suggests-we-are-severely-overreacting-to-coronavirus/ – “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 – https://stevenguinness2.wordpress.com/2020/02/14/mapping-out-the-banking-elites-goal-for-a-cashless-monetary-system-part-one/ – “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 – https://off-guardian.org/2020/03/18/covid-19-global-lockdown/ – “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 – https://www.anti-empire.com/what-an-incredibly-useful-little-virus-this-has-been-for-the-power-elite/ – I’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 – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/03/20/china-us-brought-covid19-to-china-during-army-games-hid-disease-in-us-as-influenza/ – “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 – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/03/20/why-assume-there-will-be-2020-election-general-butler-and-wall-street-putsch-revisited/ – “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 – https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/20/why-the-coronavirus-pandemic-may-fast-forward-5g-adoption-in-the-us.html – “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 – https://thefreedomarticles.com/creating-exploiting-coronavirus-crisis-problem-reaction-solution/ – “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 – https://thefreedomarticles.com/new-war-on-bioterror-everyone-suspected-carrier/ – “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 – https://www.unz.com/kbarrett/9-11-truth-coronavirus-truth-zionist-hysteria-msm-lockdown-war-on-the-horizon/ – “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 – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/fed-expands-dollar-swap-lines-nine-more-central-banks-amid-unprecedented-dollar-short – “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.’ ”

Is This The Next Big Headache For Global Economy? – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/dollar-shortage-next-big-headache-world-economy – “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.”

Lindsey Graham’s New Law (EARN IT) Would End Internet Privacy for Good – by Eric Striker – https://russia-insider.com/en/lindsey-grahams-new-law-earn-it-would-end-internet-privacy-good/ri28427 – “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 Is What A $12 Trillion Dollar Margin Call Looks Like – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/what-12-trillion-dollar-margin-call-looks – “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.”

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 – https://needtoknow.news/2020/03/corona-bologna-the-truth-begins-to-leak-out-in-italy-the-overwhelming-majority-of-deaths-are-linked-to-other-illnesses/ – “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 – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/experimental-coronavirus-vaccine-to-skip-animal-testing-test-directly-on-humans/ – “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.”

CV19 Not Chinese at all, Engineered, Deep State and Proving it is easier and easier – by Ian Greenhalgh – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/03/18/virus-outbreaks-are-israeli-bio-terrorism/ – “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. Joins Al-Qaeda Efforts To Undermine Russian-Turkish Ceasefire Agreement In Idlib – https://southfront.org/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.”

Netanyahu Gives Himself Broad Phone Tapping Powers To Fight “Invisible Enemy” Coronavirus – https://southfront.org/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.’..

From the Rainbows-And-Unicorns Desk: In the midst of converging crises, the Green New Deal is the answer – by Avi Lewis – https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-in-the-midst-of-converging-crises-the-green-new-deal-is-the-answer/ – “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? – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/if-contrived-political-hysteria-what-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?”

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.”

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.”

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 Fed’s Latest Welfare Payout to the Crooked Wall Street Banks – by Mike Whitney – https://www.unz.com/mwhitney/the-feds-latest-welfare-payout-to-the-crooked-wall-street-banks/ – “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 – https://anonhq.com/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 – https://southfront.org/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) – https://southfront.org/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.”
